Top Ten Things Which Should Happen to Jackie Evancho

The Top Ten

1 Win a Grammy

She is in a difficult position with the academy and the "pop" world. Although her appearance is certainly no longer that of a little girl, people have long memories. Example are the extreme lengths others like Miley Cyrus have gone to in order to shed their kid-star image. In her age group, flashy pop stars are the only thing that gets attention. Her style is more like Streisand, Dion, Brightman, etc, all of which are now revered, but would also have a tough time breaking out in today's music world.

Going after a Grammy often requires a conscious decision by the artist to conform to the current trends. Sometimes it is divine genius, like Prince or Ray Charles, but just as often it is following a formula. Another way involves a bit of luck, such as being chosen to sing the theme to a movie that turns into a big box office hit. Evancho will be doing some movie themes, one of those films could get her that Grammy push.

Jackie deserves to win a Grammy if the music industry can see beyond it collective nose and acknowledge greatness.

Gotta happen, hopefully sooner rather than later.

2 Gain more fame

I am addicted to her voice

Jackie has a lot of great potential. She should serve as an inspiration for future musicians so our music can get good again. - TopTenTed

She will have a very long-term career and not be a flash in the pan. She can handle several branches of show business much like Streisand; singing, film, and Broadway.

Her career is going along well, she is working as much as she wants, and growing professionally with each outing.

3 Continue being friendly

Robert Redford chose her for his movie "The Company You Keep" in part because of her personality.

Modern singers suck, jackie is our only hope, you got this jackie! Bring back the spirit!

She has always shown a very friendly demeanor during interviews.

Concert audiences are always taken in by her personality.

4 Continue being a natural storyteller

Everyone loves a good story, so everyone loves a good storyteller. - BobG

This is her specialty, and the reason that so many can't stop listening to her. Most singers are really just singing about themselves and can't get out of the way of the song, but Jackie acts as a neutral story teller, gets lost in the song herself, and with her out of the way, we naturally follow.

5 She becomes the most famous singer ever and continues to be the same sweet person she is today

This is probably what Jackie herself wants most. - BobG

Would love to see this

What is her favorite color?

want this

6 Have her music shown on music channels

It is not only her singing voice that stirs the human soul but also the accompanying music to go with it that makes all the difference.

I don't want it mixed in with songs like "Baby" or "Anoconda". Yes, I mean pop channels. We want REAL music channels. - FennikenFan9

7 Perform on Nickelodeon
8 Have a Billboard #1 album

Her latest album just hit #1 on the Billboard Classical Chart in April 2019, making that 8 in a row.

She has already broken Michael Jackson's record as the youngest artist in US chart history to have a #2 album and go Platinum.
In fact, she has had TWO albums that hit #2 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, and if you count the Classical Chart, she actually has had two #1's.
All told, she has had three top 10 CD's.

She is now up to seven albums that have hit #1 on the Billboard Classical Chart.

Billboard's Classical Chart covers artists from Luciano Pavarotti to The Piano Guys, not artists who are normally played on rock or pop radio stations.

9 Have a happy life sharing her golden voice with the world

Jackie deserves to be happy - all else follows

She deserves happiness, for all the joy she has brought to others.

She is amazing, I mean, she's phenomenon. I can't get people that say Justin Bieber is better than her. Why would you say something like that?

This is the most important thing for her.

10 Win more Grammy awards than Adele

Sorry, this one ain't gonna happen.

There have been many times when I wish those two would meet up.

Well, one advantage Adele would have is that Adele would qualify in more categories, since she writes and produces as well as sings...

Yes, David Foster, who won his first Grammy in 1980, has won 16 to Adele's 10. The twist here, of course, is that Adele didn't win her first Grammy until 2009. That means Adele in the last seven years has won 10 Grammys to Foster's one in the same time period. I feel pretty confident Adele can win seven more Grammys than Foster over the next 29 years.

The Contenders

11 Marry and Have Children with Matteo Bocelli

They would be a cute couple; he is 6-6, and she is just 5-1.

12 Sing in more multiple languages

So far she's done French, Italian, Latin and Japanese, along with her native English. - BobG

13 Win an Emmy

For her PBS "Great Performances" T.V. concert special.

14 Perform on the Disney Channel
15 Perform on Cartoon Network
16 Just Stop Being Praised by Toptens

Not delusional at all, there is just no way Barack Obama would have invited her to perform so many times if he didn't read The Top Tens, which would have fooled him into thinking she was popular. Why else would Obama possibly have picked her five times, except for the spamming here? He had no idea that nobody knew who she was, not even after that performance in front of 300,000 people at the Capitol Building. Trump also just has to read the lists here, otherwise she would not have done the Inaugural. Those people at Billboard also must read these lists, because they were fooled into making all of her albums #1 on the Billboard Classical Chart.

Hey wait, if Barack Obama didn't hear about Jackie Evancho due to the spamming here, how in the world did he ever choose her to perform at the White House? Didn't he know that nobody had ever heard of her?

Obama, Trump and Billboard read these lists... DELUSIONAL FANS! These lists/polls mean zilch in the REAL WORLD! Get a real life!

It's actually not Jackie's fault that she's praised a lot on TheTopTens. ~ Userguy44

17 Experiment with more genres

With the songs on her upcoming album "Awakening", she has now done Classical Crossover, pop, ballads, symphonic metal, country, opera, folk, Goth, rock, Japanese traditional, Broadway show tunes, duets, blockbuster movie themes; what's left?

Maybe on her new album due in early 2016, she will show us even more surprises. - BobG

Something ORIGINAL!

18 Win Nobel Peace Prize
19 Sing at the White House

I know she sang the national anthem at Trump's inauguration after the rest of the free world turned him down. Apparently she sang for Obama too, so I won't hold that against her too much.

Jackie was the first singer asked to sing The National Anthem at Trump's Inauguration. She had sung previously at the White House for Obama and also had done several concerts at Trumps' casino and his Key Largo estate. So she was very well known for her National Anthem singing in Washington DC circles. This stupid meme about everyone turning Trump down is a lie. Numerous other singers wanted to sing The National Anthem including Ayla Brown, daughter of ex-Senator Scott Brown. She is the The National Anthem singer for all the NBA's Philadelphia 76'ers home games. So stop this lying about nobody wanted to sing there.

Accomplished this numerous times. Twice for Obama and family personally, and another three times at official Washington D.C. events organized by the Obama Adminstration, plus the Trump Inaugural. However, both Obama and Trump have both said in interviews several times that it was the spamming at TTT which fooled them into inviting her to sing. In particular the Obama Administration was very upset, when, after the fifth time Evancho had performed for them, that they were informed that nobody had ever heard of her.

She has accomplished this twice!

20 Die

In light of the Christina Grimmie tragedy earlier this year you should reconsider leaving this posted.

Not until she's done all the good things on this list, though. - BobG

21 Ennio Morricone calls her to make an album
22 Make Progressive Rock Music

Yeah like the Moody Blues, or the Court of the Crimson King. Next thing you know her cover will be votebotted to the #1 best prog rock song of all time because of the way she screams "aah" during every chorus. Some irrelevant singer over the legendary King Crimson. Disgraceful. - shadomatrix

Yes, some classic Prog Rock would work perfectly with her voice. The extended notes in The Moody Blues' hit "Tuesday Afternoon" would be among many perfect choices for her voice.

Moody Blues - 'Nights In White Satin'. Her voice would soar with those instrumentals.

23 Get married

It would be better for us if that means that we'll see less times her image in the top tens.

24 Record a duet with Dimash Kudaibergen
25 Be named to the "Forbes 30 under 30" list

Annual list of the 30 most notable people in the USA who are under 30 years old.

Accomplished this, as she was named on it for 2018.

26 Sing onstage with Matteo Bocelli

Did it in spectacular fashion. She is beautiful, and he is strikingly handsome. They sound great together. Hopefully many more times in the future.

Son of the great Andrea Bocelli.

27 Appears in a major Hollywood movie

Accomplished this by starring as Robert Redford's daughter in his movie "The Company You Keep".

28 Win a Tony Award

Probably for playing Christine in "Phantom of the Opera" on Broadway.

She would make an amazing Christine!

Does she ven act?

29 Perform over 100 solo concerts
30 Win an Academy Award

Has already played the daughter of multiple Oscar-winner Robert Redford in his movie "The Company You Keep", which also featured a couple of other winners in the cast, so she is learning from the best.

31 Try to sing jazz

She just did this quite successfully with the song "La Vie En Rose" as a guest vocalist on Jumaane Smith's recent CD.

32 Sing pop

Just for fun, she recorded the catchy pop song "Go Time" for the Justice brand of girl's clothes.

She has sung Taylor Swift's "Blank Space" live and also did an unplugged version with Nick Marzock on guitar, in the lobby of the Roosevelt Hotel in Pittsburgh. - BobG

33 Get arrested

Why? - Userguy44

34 Sing blues

She'll probably try this some day...right now she's having too much fun! - BobG

Having the blues isn't fun. Singing the blues is very fun!

35 Get guillotined

Another hater on here I see.

In light of the Christina Grimmie tragedy this year you should reconsider leaving this posted.

Someone is crazy! - Userguy44

36 Gets more famous than Justin Bieber

Don't be ridiculous... she DEFINITELY ISN'T more famous than Justin Bieber. Her fanatical fans are deluding themselves again/still.

She is...

37 Sing rock
38 Sing alternative
39 Sing for The Pope

Did that on the Pope's recent USA visit.

40 Sing onstage with Andrea Bocelli

As of November 2015, she has sung onstage with Bocelli 3 times, including twice in Italy.

41 Record a duet with Placido Domingo

Done it. Twice in fact.


42 Tops Taylor Swift in the charts

Tay-Tay is a pop/country singer, Jackie is a classical/Broadway singer. Pop dominates the charts, nothing new.

43 Thanos disintegrates her

She is friends with Chuck Norris

44 Go to hell
