The Top Ten

Zayn Malik
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.
[Newest]Zayn has an incredible voice he is amazing ❤️❤️

2Mariah Carey
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 really safely say, Mariah Carey is the greatest female singer that has ever lived.
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.
Her voice is like an angel she has a natural tune to her voice it makes me forget the things that hurt me and I become better, mariah carey is a brilliant singer and has the ability to blow someones mind with new songs that she brings out, I was shocked at obsessed and touch my body as she wasnt the type of singer to sing these songs but she did amazing and they really did suit her voice.
[Newest]I have never heard someone who sings so amazingly, with awesome execution to in the whistle register (and others too! )

3Whitney Houston
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!
Whitney Houston will never be 6? WHAT! She topped Mariah Carey. For anything Mariah Carey Should be second! Whitney Houston won and there is no doubts about it for me! Don't be whack saying oh she is better than Whitney.. THEIR NOT! ~ thanks
[Newest]She is awesome the voice that's what she is no question

4Celine Dion
All by myself,
power of love,
all time favorite!
no one can do better other than celine!
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.
Of course celine dion. None other than her... She hits even the highest note and while making it long.
[Newest]She is THE GREATEST VOICE... Listen any of her songs.

Always rocks

5Jackie Evancho
"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.
[Newest]Zayn only have high notes

6Ariana Grande
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 is no Mariah.. They are both talented and have ridiculously amazing voices, and in my opinion only people who have no idea about music and vocals think they sound alike, only time Ari sounded like Mariah was the whistles in her cover of Emotion, and only the whistles. People should really accept the fact that Ari is proving to be the voice of our time
[Newest]She is the best in my opinion

7Demi Lovato
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!
SHE IS THE BEST SINGER I HAVE EVER HEARD IN ALL MY LIFE. Think that in a few years she will be totally a Christina Aguilera 2.0. Maybe youll think I'm joking but you ALL WILL SEE. I LOVE YOU DEMETRIA!
[Newest]Someone who puts emotions into music deserves to be commended. After all, what is music?

8Christina Aguilera
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
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.
[Newest]Christina Aguilera should be up with mariah. Christina is the best on this list!

9Sissel Kyrkjebø

10Michael Jackson
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
He is the best singer of all time and that is why they call him the king pop! So you know what... To all of yall people who wanna hate on Michael, I bet he has done more things in life than you will EVER DO! So you can take it to the bank and deposit that
[Newest]I love MJ for always❤✌

The Contenders

11Regine Velasquez
She is the best singer than the other
Regz can really sing a high note... She's the one!
Wow! She can sing higher than others
[Newest]Well check her cover chandelier

12Hayley Westenra

13Charice Pempengco
From Rio: She is the best for me her high notes is very high! No one can do that, I try to sing like her but it's hard to reach the high that she hit. Charice you're my Idol all of time, I want to be like you! I love you! ^_^
Charice has a powerful voice. Even though one of a highest pitched song like LISTEN by Beyonce, Charice reached it!..
Charice is one of few who can hit and maintain the note in "All By Myself", a hit song covered by Celine Dion. Her tone is near immaculate which gives her a distinct advantage over many others.

14Mary-Jess Leaverland

15Sumi Jo

16Chen (EXO)
This guy has like one of the biggest vocal range ever. He can hit the lowest notes and the highest in his group. Just Wow.
When you hear his even if he is singing using the highest notes, you can still say the word "WOW" because chen's voice is amazing
I love exo man :) and chen's voice is like heaven!
[Newest]His vocal range.. Woah

17Patricia Janeckova

18David Phelps
David Phelps is an amazing tenor who was classically trained and received his vocal training at Baylor University. David sings with the Gaither Vocal Band and also does solo performances. Two of my all time favorite songs is an Italian Aria Nesun Dorma

The other all time favorite is O Holy Night. I think you will find that David has the best vocal range of any male vocalist ever.
David has the most amazing range. Breathtaking the way he sings from his soul with such passion. I listen to him over and over. My favorite (although it's hard to choose would have to be "The end of the beginning". Please never lose your angelic voice. I am your biggest fan. He is # 1
He is the best singer. He has good vocal range. "No More Night" is one of his best song.
[Newest]Just super, thanks God!

19Layne Staley
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.


How come all these pop singers are in the top ten, and Layne is here at #19? Invalid list!


20EXO's D.O
D.O. hits the lowest note in EXO but he is also great in singing high notes especially in MAMA mv
