Top Ten Saddest Songs by a Female Artist

The Top Ten

1 Lovers - Jackie Evancho

Jackie first recorded this at age 11, and now at age 15, still performs it in concert. The emotions of this song are profound, and Jackie caps it with a soaring acapella phrase, "Your voice still echoes in my heart." Check it out live on YouTube or on Dream With Me in Concert. Unforgettable. - BobG

2 My Immortal - Evanescence

I love this song.
Really so beautiful. and lyrics are amazing.

The Contenders

11 Time to Say Goodbye - Sarah Brightman

23 Landslide - Stevie Nicks
24 Save Me - Nicki Minaj
25 Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again - Jackie Evancho
26 My Immortal - Jackie Evancho

This cover of Evanescence's wonderful song is worth a listen " especially from Jackie's PBS special "Awakening - In Concert". Even better than on her "Awakening" album release, and now included on her "Awakening" concert tour, with Jackie on keyboard for the first part. - Trancas
