23 Jackie Evancho Jackie Evancho Jacqueline Marie "Jackie" Evancho is an American classical crossover singer who gained wide recognition at an early age and, since 2009, has issued an EP and five albums, including a platinum and gold album and three Billboard 200 top 10 debuts .

Perhaps the most beautiful singing voice in the history of recorded music. But that's not even her greatest strength. What she's REALLY good at is making people cry. I've never seen another singer, of any age, in any genre, from any era, who consistently has so many people in her audiences who are crying.

That would be an amazing achievement for an adult singer, but Jackie isn't even 14 yet. What she does should be impossible. But she's been making people cry with the beauty of her voice since she was 9. Other singers make people cry when they sing sad songs. Jackie makes people cry when she sings about a tree. In Latin.

Just check out her videos & what people say about her.

This kid turns heads as soon as she opens her mouth! Once you hear her voice, you will never forget it.

When she sings, you know it's Jackie and no one else. Her voice stays with you for a long time afterwards. - BobG
