2 Bridge Over Troubled Water - Jackie Evancho

Sorry guys, but this young lady's voice takes it to a higher place... - Trancas

From her performance at Cirque du Soleil founder Gil Laliberté's charity gala "One Night for ONE DROP 2013. Performed in the "O" Theater at the Bellagio Resort in Las Vegas. See the YouTube video. Amazing.

3 Here Comes the Sun - The Beatles

Doo doo doo doo! - Misfire

That's what people on the East Coast are listening to when there's a blizzard. Luckily, in California, it's almost always sunny. However, we have a drought, so a nice rain shower would be nice. - ethanmeinster

4 Anthem - Iced Earth

"Torn asunder, our destiny is in sight
This is the anthem to celebrate your life

We have the power make our lives what they are to be
Reconnect with our humanity
Transcend to a higher place, accepting reality
You are the key to the life you seek" - Metal_Treasure

5 Our Loved Ones - Volbeat

"You open up but what you gain is another hole
Reaching out for a hand and I know
The fear of losing all the trust that it craves
And feel that parts of you are never coming back

I used to think that life was ugly and a mess
Well I was right but what else to do other than your best". - Metal_Treasure

6 I Am - Theocracy

"I am the parent's love, unchanging, unconditional and pure
I am the loyal friend whose heart will never let you down
I am the hand that pulls you back into the boat before you drown" - Metal_Treasure
