Top Ten Things Which Should Happen to Jackie Evancho


The Top Ten

1 Win a Grammy

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.

She has already earn't this recognition by any reasonable measure.

I love listening to her sing, she is so good.

2 Gain more fame

I am addicted to her voice

She will, and she's got plenty of time to gain it

She's famous on the Top Tens for sure. A lot of people still have never heard of her, though.

Only as much as she wants.

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.

Friendly onstage and off.

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?

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 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 Jackie's Dream. - BobG

9 Win more Grammy awards than Adele

Sorry, this one ain't gonna happen.

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.

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

10 Perform on the Disney Channel

The Contenders

11 Perform on Cartoon Network
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 Have a Billboard #1 album

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.

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.

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

I didn't know Billboard had a classical chart.

15 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!

16 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

17 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.

She has accomplished this twice!

I’ll stop lying when he does.

18 Get arrested

Why? - Userguy44

19 Win Nobel Peace Prize
20 Get married

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

21 Record a duet with Dimash Kudaibergen
22 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?

23 Ennio Morricone calls her to make an album
24 Make Progressive Rock Music

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.

25 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.

26 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.

27 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

28 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!

29 Get guillotined

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

Another hater on here I see.

Someone is crazy! - Userguy44

30 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...

31 Sing rock
32 Sing alternative
33 Sing for The Pope

Did that on the Pope's recent USA visit.

34 Sing onstage with Andrea Bocelli

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

35 Record a duet with Placido Domingo

Done it. Twice in fact.


36 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.

37 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.
