There is no one who comes close to this young lady. No one.
A voice so pure, beautiful and uplifting that many people of all ages shed tears on listening to her.
Watch her sing this for Sharon Osbourne on "The Talk" and you can't help feeling uplifted.
I have seen "live" in concert Art Garfunkel, Brian Wilson, and Jackie Evancho within the past 12 months. Jackie wins.V 6 Comments
Sung at a charity event by Jackie Evancho. The most beautiful rendition of this song ever done.
Absolutely fantastic version by Jackie. She's the best. Thanks to Paul for writing this song for Jackie!
Sung at Cirque du Soleil's "One Night for ONE DROP" charity gala. Look for the YouTube video.
No, no, no, no, you cannot rank any crappy cover above the timelessness of the original. You make me ashamed. - naFrovivuS
Carl Wilson didn't even crack Rolling Stone's Top 100 Vocalists list. Bloody shame. Even Paul McCartney (see below) has to strain a bit when he sings God Only Knows. Carl doesn't even sound like he's trying. - PetSounds
Paul Mccartney's favorite Song! - Beatlesboy9
Loved the movie "Love and Mercy", what a great story.
I like this song.V 2 Comments
Someone tell me why is some random cover above this classic? - naFrovivuS
This is an incredibly moving song. One of the best songs ever, yeah!
Best Vocal Performance Ever
The final section is amazing - OnionLists
The lead vocal, and indeed the whole song, was inspired by God Only Knows (see above). Paul rarely uses falsetto, but he does it masterfully. - PetSounds
My heart misses a beat when I first hear Matt's warm voice on this song and leaves me quite breathless and in tears... It's just... Beautiful. - Britgirl
Freddie always put so much into his songs, there will never be anyone like him, freddie was the best singer to ever live
I listened to this song for the first time today. The lead vocal is unlike anything I've ever heard. Thank-you, PositronWildhawk. - PetSoundsV 1 Comment
Ronnie James Dio, aka Mr. Golden Voice for a reason.
Very powerful yet velvety voice. Great vocal technique.
Dio's voice and the song in general sound like a music message from the center of the Universe. - Metal_Treasure
A definition of beautiful modern vocals, especially the beginning of the song. - Metal_Treasure
