Top Ten Best Things About Jackie Evancho
As early as age 9, she was performing with David Foster [Whitney Houston and Celine Dion's producer], who immediately recognized her immense talent. At age 10 she broke Michael Jackson's record as youngest person in US chart history to have a Platinum Album. At age 11, she had her first 1-hour solo T.V. special. Now age 18, she has had 7 albums hit #1 on the Billboard Classical Chart.
She's lucky to have been given such an incredibly beautiful voice. I enjoy everything she sings even if I don't like the song. That voice can make anything sound good
She has performed for every living president, including 5 times for Obama.
Her innate talent is off the charts, and she works hard at it all the time.
Physical beauty doesn't really transcend into talent (although Jackie is talented).
Also, she's 16. Put the lotion down.
As an 18-year old young woman, Jackie's beauty is becoming more evident.
Her beauty seems to radiate out from inside. she just seems like a really unaffected, pleasant person you would like to be friends with, modest even. Then when she gets on stage you think wow.
More beautiful every year.
Who, besides Nicki Minaj, isn't?
At her recent performance at the David Foster Foundation charity concert in Canada, Jackie Evancho personally donated $10,000 to help support a family who had a critically ill child in need of an organ transplant.
So does some other famous people, who are adults.
The new album has a total of 4 original songs she wrote herself.
Jackie attends her local public high school and performs concerts on weekends and school breaks. She hangs with her friends just like any other teen.
Likes to ride dirt bikes, is good at archery, goes to the beach, and lots more regular kid stuff.
Took a bad fall when playing with airsoft guns with her brother in 2012, and needed 100 stitches to close up a serious leg injury.
There's is Jackie the sweet teenager, and Jacqueline the Voice.
Two spirits in one person.
If just all could be so
Take that Kanye
Has set numerous youngest-ever standards in the music business.
Very young to have had three T.V. specials of their own.
Will turn 15 years old in April of 2015.
She's 16, huh? Like Leni Loud's age or whatsoever...
Why do people call people "haters" whenever they state their opinion, and then they act like a whiny douche when they have good taste! For Pete Townshend's sake...
Never needs auto-tune, or any other electronic enhancement. Not mamy artists today can make the claim that what you are hearing is the same thing the recording engineers heard.
It would be great to see her cast in a T.V. spinoff for the movie Pitch Perfect.
Its almost like they created the phrase just for her.
And by "nobody", you mean anyone in your 6th grade class. Her first solo album went Platinum, when she was 10 years old, breaking Michael Jackson's record of age 11, although MJ was not actually solo, and was in the Jackson Five with his older brothers.
This must be a fake, because nobody has ever heard of her.
Amen to that and most deservedly so! 👌
The way this site looks, it's virtually impossible for her to be underrated. She's positive? She has lots of personality? She's sweet and kind? What, do you all know her personally? I love James Taylor's music. I could care less if he's sweet and kind, or has a pleasant personality. I've never met him, nor am I likely to. How do any of you have a clue in the world what her personality is really like?
Professional singers across the globe know who she is and have performed with her, even though not many kids her own age know of her work.
We want to hear a lot more of her songs on the radio, and also to have her be on T.V. more often. If she can be in more movies too that would be great.
Her classical Crossover genre does not get a lot of airplay on pop stations.
Sang two duets with Fernando, "A Thousand Years" [in Spanish], and "The Prayer".
Among her numerous admirers include David Foster, Barbra Streisand, Sumi Jo, Katherine Jenkins, and now the "Songwriters Hall of Fame" for her amazing rendition of "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" that she performed at their special request at the song's HOF induction.
She has now added the all-time greats Andrea Bocelli and Jose Carreras to the list of people she has sung onstage with. Pretty unprecedented for somebody who just turned 15 years old.
She has now added Placido Domingo to the list, as she has 2 fine duets included in his latest album.
Jackie has had her own PBS "Great Performances" T.V. concert special TWICE already, and will be taping her third special sometime I the fall of 2014.
She had her own TLC Special, "Growing Up Evancho" in 2017, which focused on her and her inspirational family.
Her THIRD T.V. special aired in December of 2014.
She is now up to having had her own "solo" PBS-T.V. special THREE times.
It is well-known that both Obama and Trump read The Top Tens all the time, and make many decisions based on what they see on it. The only reason she got to sing at the White House all those multiple times is because of the spamming she gets here.
She received backlash on Social Media for agreeing to perform for 2017 Presidential Inauguration, when she said that her performance was apolitical and she don't do politics.
One of the appearances was at an outdoor Christmas tree lighting event, and the temperature was around 10 degrees.
The National Prayer Breakfast also had a lot of senators and other leaders besides the president.
For the "Children's Rights" conference in November of 2014.
