By far Whitney has the most voice control ever, she has set the standards for singing that has not been matched, she is also the most influential singer in the world.
I didn’t mean to thumbs up your comment and it won’t let me take it back. But to say Mariah is the most influential is just stupid. She influenced people to get naked and sing in bathtubs and that was when she was “at the top of her game” Whitney sadly did a bathtub at the end cause she didn’t need sex appeal to sell music she had that voice
Love you whitney you just the best singer I ever heard and the most awarded. Maybe your voice isn’t there anymore but I will always love you for the joy and the emotions you give me when I hear your songs.
Who on earth can compare to Whitney Houston when she is on the stage? Thank God to bestow the greatest singer of all time that we all can enjoy her beautiful voice. Even though she cannot sing like she used to be in the late 1990s, her incomparable voice and all beautiful melodies will always impress in my mind.
She should be called the Queen of Pop, not Madonna
2. Mariah Carey
Put simply, there is just NO other singer in the world that can make the hair on the back of your neck stand up, to the same degree as Mariah Carey. It’s her range; her tonal sound; her accuracy of pitch; her ‘trills’ (vocal runs); and her upper power when hitting high notes that made her one of the all time greats. Sure, there are many great singers and she’s perhaps not as good as what she was in the 90’s, but that’s more been her change in musical direction rather than a decline in ability – she’s well and truly proved that with her 2010 Christmas Concert in recorded in Washington last year. PLUS, she writes all her own songs, when too many of the big names these days, unfortunately don’t!
Mariah’s voice is just incomparable, there’s nothing else I can say about it, its beautifully pure, angelic and very very unique. Just an all round perfect voice with the ability of going really being like a big bonus. Just listen to Never Too Far to get a sense of what shes capable of and then listen to Bliss which shows off her higher range (whistle notes)
I LOVE HER she is very consistent with his work, although when I she was not famous anymore as it once was, but around the world who does not know the voice capability is pretty amazing. Class singer Beyonce was even I do not think it can match its octave voice is very high.
3. Celine Dion
Definitely deserves #1. I have never heard a singer who gives me chills up and down the spine as she does. Just listen to her rendition of “Oh Holy Night”. Her range is beyond incredible.
Celine deserves the number 1 spot. Come on, she has recorded songs with some of the worlds greatest singers and sings very well in five different languages. She sings like an angel and has such charm about her. Stop talking about beyonces look here because we are talking about voices and by far celine is number one, mariah is number two, whitney is number three and of them all, celine has been the most consistent with her records and has passed mariah to become the worlds best selling female vocalist of all time.
Celine is the most versatile singer in the world and here is why :
Listen to “that’s just the woman in me” and you will understand, knowing her as a crystal clear voice… And than a totally new sound, new texture in the most powerful notes of this song… It blew me away… I couldn’t believe what I just listen to. And now ask MC or WH or CA or anybody out there to ( try ) to do this: they will cry and will acknowledge that only Celine can do this. She can imitate a electric garage door, a piano, a flute, trumpet. Etc… She is a chameleon with her voice, flawless, perfect control, most power voice in the high notes with stamina ( All by myself ) and the list goes on and on and on… Truly the best.
She deserve number 1
Are you freaking kidding me?!
Adele is below Kesha, Lady Gaga, and Hillary Duff…?
WHERE IS THE JUSTICE IN THIS GOD FORSAKEN LIST!
Adele is definitely top 3 material.
You moronic people voting for Disney channel kids and pop blunders need to get a grip on what TALENT is…
This woman is unbelievable. Sure, whitney, beyonce etc are impressive singers, but only listening to adeles pure voice gives me the chills
That’s because the tone/color of her voice draws people to her, but based off of what she can do with her voice and how she uses it, she is not the best vocalist of all time.
Adele has amazing talent! She is one of the greatest singers of all times! Why is she on 127th place? I don’t get it.. Adele is an incredible person and singer-songwriter! Vote for her!
Her voice is so powerful! She has to be in the top 3!
5. Christina Aguilera
She has one of the highest vocal ranges in music history, a superb 4 octave range! She is definitely one of the best and one of the highest selling artists!
Christina is clearly an extremely talented singer that puts her all into her music. Her vocal ability is absolutely outstanding. She sings because it’s what she loves to do. Christina Aguilera is a very inspiring singer that will never lose her amazing voice. She is the best singer of the generation, and absolutely one of the best singers of all time. She sings to express herself, and she doesn’t care if that means less album sales, or less popularity. Christina, never stop singing.
Christina aguilera seriously how is she not top 5 or even first she is beautiful brilliant singer always has a standing ovation and you never cease to be amazed and amazing vocal range
SHE IS AMAZING THE BEST number 1
No she should not on the 4th rank
6. Aretha Franklin
Are you kidding me? Arethra Franklin widely is widely accepted as the greatest singer of all time, not just the greatest female singer. And she’s been placed below Miley Cyrus here… Really? Please just listen to her sing respect and THEN vote. Aretha Franklin is BY FAR one of the greatest singers of all time
Rolling stone rated her #1 for the greatest singers of all time. She was even higher than a bunch of guys she should be #1 on this list
Nothing needs to be said just amazing singer, great vocals a lot of talent really worked with some amazing artists as well.
She is really amazing and so underrated. people just can’t acknowledge her greatness.
7. Beyonce Knowles
This woman is amazing. Her voice is just out of this world, and completely flawless!
Just watch her perform. She puts all of her soul in her singing.
By the way, being a devoted fan, I decided to watch The Beyoncé Experience Live. Some minutes later, I noticed I was crying like a baby. That’s how Queen Bee leaves me with one of her greatest performances of all time. You guys have to check it out.
May be your hard-on made you cry. If she would wear clothes and sing, you would not be as moved.
Beyonce is the singer at all the time she has lots of talents than any other female singer. Beyonce she is sexy and beautiful than any other women. Beyonce is better than rihanna and lady gaga even better than any other female singer. THEIR IS ONLY ONE BEYONCE IN THE WORLD…
Beyonce is my ultimate idol. She is so talented! She can sing, dance, and act! I also love her song irreplaceable for me she is the best!
She should definitely be above Mariah.
8. Katy Perry
Shes much better than most of the others above
Dude, at least shes well known!
I love her!
The fact that she’s well known has nothing to do with her vocal ability.
She should be higher on this list, she’s young and has a really bright future ahead of her. Love her!
Katy Perry is the best singer! I was sure that she would be at least 2nd after Gaga… But she is 87! That’s more than incredible! I am not music addict and know inconsiderable number of singers! But I have never heard about Sarah Brin… Who is she? Why is she the first if people who are not fans of music do not know her whereas they know those who are 87?
I think saying that just because you don’t know who the people above her are doesn’t mean she should be #1. Your knowledge isn’t necessarily everyone else’s knowledge. And if you don’t know who the people above her are, listen to them! Expand your musical knowledge. I have listened to hundreds of female vocalists and in my opinion, Aretha Franklin is the greatest. But for all I know, there may be someone else out there who is better than Aretha that I haven’t heard.
9. Amy Lee
love her beautiful voice!
Amy and Evanescence forever!
She must be first!
Sincerely, Amy Lee deserves the first place, her voice is the most amazing I have ever heard, so beautiful that I run to my dad every time I hear her and tell him, judge her, he just says, wow.. I ran out of words, all I gotta say is that my dream is to sing like her, almost impossible.. But she has an Angel Voice.
Why is she so low on this list, her vocals are amazing and her songs are enchanting
She deserves to be in the top 5 she has an amazing voice that can reach any pitch, and she is hella talented at the piano, she deserves a lot more credit.
Are you kidding, she’s in 15?… She suppose to top 3, she’s all the time singer, and successfully an “icon”.
– Strong voice character
– Breath is technique it self, and she’s ana expert breath technique (when she breath for next lyric line, its sounds like smooth sigh which bold the lyric itself).
– And surely, have most great Songclip video
– Sexy, in all way
Shes the best selling on this list for a reason.
Although she may not have the range or the aforementioned “texture”, she made some of the happiest, most feel good songs of all time, and some of the saddest as well. (Don’t believe me, see “Promise to Try”, “Till Death Do us Part”, or “Oh Father”, just from one album). She has some of the best range in the songs she sings, and most singles have provoked thought and argument, which is what music should do.
Madonna was extremely controversial in her prime, yet she turned out to pave the way for what is acceptable today. She made people question societal norms regarding sex, sexual orientation, race, and freedom of expression, and is a large reason a lot of people are more liberal on these issues today. I could go on about what she did for the gay community for years but that would be besides the point. Those who say she is just a brain bimbo are clearly just projecting.
She is not Celine Dion.. But The way she sings it’s so unique and original! Love you Queen
