Best Singers for Singing High NotesChoose the one that is truly the best! And deserving..
The Top Ten
Zayn definitely has one of the strongest voices around in the music industry, and he doesn't even sing rock. He can surely do the highest notes especially for a guy!
He broke Demi Lovato's Recor of Strongest Live voice And Highest Note Live! ;D
Zayn does amazing high notes, especially for a guy. They're both consistant and... Well, very high. He's an amazing singer all around.
I love Zayn he is a cute Zayn Zayn is what makes one direction goodV 470 Comments
As Good as all the other singers in this list is, Mariah Carey is the better singer. She, for me, is a complete package. She can sing very low notes that I, a man, cannot reach (My all - last note) and she also have a very high range that makes any musician freeze, extremely powerful singer (O Holy night - the end of the chorus the first time and the verse afterwards. Mariah also has a really controlled whistle register that not all singers can sing or reach. The way she controls it really should make her the best singer in the world. (O Holy Night, I wanna no what love is, Emotions, etc. ). Here's a hint for all fans to note: If no one on this planet can sing a song that your favorite singer has performed or originated, then you know that he/she is special and one in a trillion. No one can perform Mariah carey songs like Mariah Carey does. Charice sings Whitney Houston and Celine Dion songs really well and they two are Mariah's most fierced rivals in singing. Based on that, I can ...more
I heard Mariah Carey singing Emotion. I have never heard anyone hit those high notes like she could. Her voice is a beautiful freak of God and nature.
It's Mariah Carey! Come on! Her high notes, among everything else about her, are legendary! You talk about high notes, you talk about Mariah Carey. It's self-explanatory. It's not even about opinion here, it's FACT that you either sing higher notes than other singers (such as those listed here) or you don't, and Mariah? She does! This cannot be disputed. And she delivers them flawlessly. Personal opinion means nothing when the facts are undeniable.
I want to burn to see Zayn Malik got so much attention while he can only reach A5! These kiddo supporters really know nothing.V 95 Comments
"High notes" meaning what? Screeching? Screaming? Whistle-register vocalise without words? Or genuine soprano upper-octave singing? For the latter, look no further that this young lady.
My heart rises into my throat every time Jackie Evancho presents those perfect, spot on, sustained high notes. No other singer can do that.
See her "Somewhere" duet with Barbra Streisand on YouTube or on websites all over the 'net (this has just been rediscovered from its 2011 PBS airing.
Listen to Jackie's pure, spine-tingling high notes as she finishes the song "Lovers". She's been dazzling audiences with this song since the age of 11, and still performs it at age 16. - BobGV 9 Comments
Shes awesome I know she only done like a few songs but wow her voice is amazing really I think shes awesome so vote this girl because shes got star quality and another thing shes great in victorious I believe shes GREAT AT SINGING...
She is the QUEEN for me. She is a truly talented girl, and only criticise her if you can sing a F6 with no problem, anytime. I never heard Mariah Carey, so I still have to compare the two. But I am really sure that no one will ever take Ariana's place in my heart. She is the queen, no matter what you say.
Ariana Grande's voice is a true masterpiece. She have four octave focal range and she can hit the high notes with ease (while jumping/dancing on stage) If u need evidence, u can try listening to her vocal-empowered songs (Tattooed Heart, My Everything, Be My Baby, Why Try, Break Free) She also delivered a powerful performance live. She always make a little note change while singing live during her Honeymoon Tour and that is so pleasant to the ears. Keep making music ari!
She should be #1 she is the best singer of all timeV 150 Comments
Absolute AMAZING god-hood singer. She was on another level compared to other vocalists in every aspect and way possible when it comes to singing. She had natural range that's big and strong. NO OTHER ARTIST has shown, not only the perplexing agility she possessed (almost bird-like), but the sheer range and control she "naturally" possessed in her chest voice without much effort. Really, I've never heard anyone able to take their chest voice up as high as she demonstrates consecutively, song after song in her hits and especially live performances with no hint of struggle. Her head voice is the most beautiful and focused I've ever heard in pop music. And this was all in her golden years.
She must be the first! She have strong voice than mariah!
The greatest voice of all time. She wouldn't be known as 'The Voice' for simply no reason. What Patti Labelle called "The 8th wonder of the world, " Ms. Whitney Elizabeth Houston.
No one compares to her! She was the best vocalist on earth. Her powerful voice and amazing vocal range was a force of nature!V 28 Comments
I don't even know why she's #3 and not #1. This upsets me. Celine should be nicknamed the goddess of song. She has not a sour note in her body. She pierces the galaxy and makes bright red roses rise from the bone dry concrete. I consider it more than disrespectful to not put her as number one.
All by myself,
power of love,
all time favorite!
no one can do better other than celine!
Of course celine dion. None other than her... She hits even the highest note and while making it long.

Great range of voice!
Have you ever tried to reach those high notes in "Take On Me" or "Summer Moved On"?
Having had the pleasure of hearing this man sing live with a-ha and as a solo artist, I have to say no-one comes close to his voice. Gives me goosebumps. The man is a gent too. After years of trying to meet him, I finally managed it in the pouring rain after a concert in Manchester. He only left after everyone had met him and got photos and autographs. All that and we were all soaked but buzzing and floating down the road back to the hotel. Never forget that moment.
Holds the record for the longest note held over 22 secs Summer Moved On he still hits the high notes over 31 years since Take On Me. Still touring and sounds better than ever no voice compares! Unique!
Amazing high notes FOR A MAN! Morten's voice is unique.V 264 Comments
Sissel deserves a comment here. After I heard her sing, everyone else went into the background. Her voice is crystal clear, and her range is outstanding. She is the ultimate crossover singer from the Beatles to opera to country to folk to pop to classical to gospel. Not only does she have an amazing voice, she looks like she enjoys singing. Everyone is entitled to his/her opinion, but for me Sissel is #1 and always will be. She is also outstanding in duets and is great in harmonizing as well as taking the lead. I don't bother to mention comparing her to other singers, because I have and for me she is always my favorite.
From the first time I heard Sissel, I was a fan. I never get tired of hearing her sing. Her voice is crystal clear. When she sings, she doesn't strain to hit the high notes. She looks so relaxed and happy to be singing. She is the ultimate crossover from folk, to pop, to classical, to country, to opera to gospel to rock. She is better known in her country of Norway but has fans all over the world. I won't compare her to others on this list because everyone has his/her opinion. For me she is always the best. If you aren't familiar with her singing check out her version of "Over the Rainbow," "Shenandoah," "Climb Every Mountain," and "To God Be the Glory." She also sang the musical score for "Titanic."
I first saw Sissel on a Good Morning America program in 1997. I was struck immediately by her beautiful face... and, simply, fell in love with her. I have never forgotten or will forget that moment. Since then, I have followed her life, career and collected her music. She is not only a musical superlative but an extraordinary human being aiding many times in charitable work. I only wish we could clone her and have many Sissel's for generations to come.
Sissel and only Sissel.V 2 Comments
I truly believe she's one of the best in her generation. Her vocal range is absolutely impressive. What I really like about her is that not only she can hit amazing high notes but also make the song extremely emotional. She's a true artist, the one that is able to make you feel the message that's being sent trough the song. That's what a good vocalist is supposed to do! Hands down to this flawless artist. She's one to keep an eye on. I wouldn't be any surprised if the turns out to be the next Whitney Houston within some years. This girl should be at the number 1 position!
Demi is the best singer I've ever heard! Her vocals are amazing! Plus she can emote and make me feel what she's feeling. She gives me chills
I think Demi is an AMAZING singer and she is by far the greatest!
You are my idol I love high note on gleeV 68 Comments
I hope she can sing "can somebody tell me who I am" from Disney dinosaur as covered song.
Agreed, no one hits higher than the King.
Let's get this straight. When it comes to high notes no sings higher than King Diamond. Harry Styles and Ariadne Grande use autotune and should be disqualified instantly. King Diamond is the true falsetto master.
Just listen King... self explanatory...
Such an incredible vocal range! - adfairhurstV 1 Comment
I love MJ and he should definitely be higher up on this list. He can hit high notes with the best of the best, he should at least be right under Zayn Malik (sorry, MJ, you're still #1 in my heart, though).
Michael no.28! Really! He is an legend. He open many doors for singers. Lots of people look up to THE KING OF POP. How could you put him so low
Its really a shame that Michael Jackson is number 13. Really, what are the kids listening to these days?
Great on high notes for a guyV 20 Comments
She can hit notes pretty high she has a very soulful voice and melody.
She has an extremely soulful voice, and can sing high pretty well, but no that well. It's something else that captures the person who's listening. We are all beautiful.
Xtina is the queen! Anastasia could never beat her. Mariah is my second favorite, but neither artist could compare to my lovely beautiful bb Christina Aguilera! I've loved her since I was seven, and my love for her had stayed with me as life goes on. She is a phenomenon, a generation of music itself. Christina can sing anything. An angel is not enough to describe her voice. Some people hate her rasp, but I think it just makes her sound even more powerful. My dream is to meet her and/or do a duet with her. She's my idol, a very strong voice. Christina, I know you're probably not reading this, but if you are, I love you and you are my favorite, my inspiration. I will stand by you till the end of time, support you. I believe you are better than Whitney, Celine, Mariah, and Martina combined. Your voice is so soulful and amazing. It makes the hair on my spine prickle and stand erect. Team Xtina forever, you Suberb 4 octave singer! ~Jenna
I love your high note on beautiful and Ain't no other man ain't no other man give me I am in love boys talk about boysV 18 Comments
His theatrical voice is to die for! He has a spectacular range for a male voice and is an extremely versatile singer (as is his band Panic! At The Disco) and he always impresses with what new music he performs. I heard him live this past summer at a free concert in my hometown and it may have been hands down the greatest show I ever saw. This mans voice is truly magical. Just listen to his music, it speaks for itself.
Brendon urges vocal range is beyond AMAZING and I'm not just saying it because he's my favorite celebrity I'm saying it because for a guy he hits extremely high notes as well as the low notes I can even hit them for example in the song Death of a bachelor me and my friends try so hard to hit the low notes of his song
His voice is simply amazing, he has perfect range and has perfect tone and great singing technique. Also has an amazing and unique band.
This man has an amazing voice. He can hit the high notes and low notes almost effortless. His style of music and sound is never disappointing. Hands down he needs to be at the top of this list.V 21 Comments
Her voice is like bell clear and true, listen to the version of Silent Night in German the last note is astounding
I honestly don't know how Freddie is so low on the scale. He should be number one. I bet I'm going to get people saying "Oh you're just old! Get with the times" I'm only 14 and I know he is amazing and is deserving of the number one spot"
How isn't he number ONE! He has hit the highest note you can HIT!V 6 Comments
Seriously, this guy should be called the King of Soul. I've never heard anyone, not a jazz or soul singer, sing as soulful as Staley. That combined with his raw vocal power is worth the number 1 spot. His chest voice was huge and his unique vibrato's started a legion of imitators. I don't know why why he and Whitney Houston are on the lower spots...maybe that's why music sucks these days.
I can not believe Layne is at no 20. He should have topped the list. Listen to love hate love and compare that with any song of Mariah Carrey.
Layne has an excellent voice. Try listening to some Alice in Chains songs, and you'll see he deserves higher. - Skeptical_Silence
How come all these pop singers are in the top ten, and Layne is here at #19? Invalid list! - IronSabbathPriestV 1 Comment
She is such a blessed person! We all know she's super talented, even though she's still young and has a lot of things to learn. Her high notes blow me away! I know that singers like Whitney Houston, Charice and Lea Michele might have strongest vocals and do better in high notes than her, but she's definitely better than people like Demi Lovato and Christina Aguilera. Definitely.
Actually, Leona can sing higher and stronger than Lea Michele (the little baby with a fat face who steals songs and has no creativity to come up with her own), and she possesses a suberb four octave range! Leona is a phenomenon. No, her voice is not as strong as Whitney's, or Christina's, but her voice is more pure in general than Mariah Carey. Besides, Mariah is starting to lose her voice. Did anyone hear listen to her song "Migrate" where she sounded like a Spanish Nikki Minaj rapping trashily with T-Pain?
Hands down, Leona is the most gifted high notes singer besides Minnie, Deniece, and Debelah. But her voice is stronger than all of these women.
Celine, Whitney, and Christina have more powerful voices but they just don't have the same range as Leona and Minnie.
Probably she has the most beautiful, solid and sparkly falsetto and head voice right now.
Leona should at least be in top 15V 3 Comments
