The Top Ten

Mariah 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.

2Ariana 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...
Ariana can hit high notes like Mariah! She should be in the Top ten not top twenty!
I was never even interested in her show or whatever until I saw her on Ellen where she was singing The Way. Boy can she sing and hit those high notes as well! She reminds me of Mariah Carey. I'm impressed!

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

4Demi Lovato
I think Demi is an AMAZING singer and she is by far the greatest!
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
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!

5Regine Velasquez
Wow! She can sing higher than others

6Zayn Malik
Zayn does amazing high notes, especially for a guy. They're both consistant and... Well, very high. He's an amazing singer all around.
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

7Celine 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.

10Shayne Ward
Listen to his song "Breathless"
I bet you will vote for him after you here the song!

The Contenders

11Brendon Urie
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.
His voice is simply amazing, he has perfect range and has perfect tone and great singing technique. Also has an amazing and unique band.

12Ignazio Boschetto
Lyric tenor,1/3 of il vollo, handsome, Italian, funny, 19 years old, can break glass, you name it he's got it!

13Lee Haeri
She make me goosebumps with her high notes!

14Jackie 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.
Watch and hear hit the high notes singing the National Anthem at the Detroit-Green Bay Thanksgiving Day game (2013)

15Beyonce Knowles
Sha has a soully voice that also can reach high notes.
She's the whole package
I like her because shes the best singer for me

16King Diamond
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.

17Aria Tesolin

18Lani Misalucha

19Charice 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!..
Young girl that can sing along with best singers and she has a high-ranged voice.

Uh obviously Vitas can sing pretty high pitched haha. I mean, have you heard this guy just start belting out sound like a crazy little banshee? Haha but it's still the most beautiful voice I've ever heard. Seriously, this lil' russian guy deserves some respect. PEACE
He is the best!
Try listening one of his songs Lucia di Lammermoor and opera.2 his voice Is Super high.. THUMBS UP FOR VITAS!

25Rachelle Ann Go
A young singer that can sing powerfully and she's always having a good performance
A very good singer and performer


27Steven Tyler
Listen to the high notes at the end of "Crazy." For a 45 year-old man to hit those notes after 25 years of screaming and singing is amazing. To this day he can hit high notes singers half his age can't reach.

28Amy Lee
She is, in my opoinion is the best femele rock vocalist she can hit high and low notes. Her songs have so much meaning to them and she uses her a lot of emotion in her voice.

32Leona Lewis
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.
Leona lewis should be number 2. She can hit better and higher notes then Demi and Ariana
Sweet high notes, love her!

33Jessica Jung

34Sheryn Regis
Sheryn can hit high notes while smiling compared to other singers... Well, even her highest chest note is Bb5 I know she can belt up to B5, C6, and a quick C#6 and D6 because she can control her breath. But I wonder why she doen't use her whistle like Mariah. Whatever, I just know that she is a super dooper power belter like Regine Velasquez and Celine Dion. Thank You!
She is a singer that is having a whole and earthy voice but when it comes to high notes it became firey..
Sheryn regis is the best singer.. Try to compare Sheryn Regis to other singers. Even highest note, she even reach it very relaxed.

36Julie Andrews
I REALLY FAINTED WHEN I HEARD HER VOICE! I love her too much I will Burst this second! I am a great big fan of her! I love her no matter what! Just go to youtube an listen to her singing the Polonaise when she was just 12 when she sang it!
Her voice spans 4 octaves and she can reach very high notes.

37David 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.

38Rob Halford
Why is the metal god not in this list. He has some of the most epic screams in the History of Music. Example: Victim Of Changes, Dreamer Deciever, Painkiller, Blood Red Skies, Dissident Agressor, Beyond The Realms Of Death, The Ripper etc... He should at least be in the top 3.

39Adam Lambert
How come adam be here on the list?
He should be on the toptens.. what to think more? Vote!


40Jonalyn Viray
She can whistle as Mariah and she has a high-ranged voice!

41Angeline Quinto
The next songbird of the Philippines. Maybe some will think that she just can't hit the note after what's done by Ms. Regine, but it is also the management which tells her to not go over the note of Regine because they want to create a new name and mark for Angeline. Other than that, she can hit that b5 note of regine, having done at one of her rehearsals.
Angeline is a very good singer... She has the ability to touch the heart and soul of the listeners which is the most important factor that a singer should have... She has an angelic voice and her high notes are very clear, smooth and soothing... Go Angeline:0
Shes really good in high notes in head voice..
But what I'm really looking for is she doing a song with whistles..
I hope I can hear whistle notes done by her..
By the way her chest to head transition is so amazing,
But she often over sing a song.. But still effortless for her.

42Hayley Williams
Seriously, I've never heard such a wide vocal range come from a small girl such as her! Listen to All I Wanted by Paramore, she hits the high notes in that song really clean and in Conspiracy which has one note higher than the ones in All I Wanted's highest note and there's not much singers nowadays that can sing like her and hit the high notes as effortless as she does.
Best singer ever live paramore are awesome live and Hayley's vocals are amazing

43Minnie Riperton
Her octaves (has publicly hit 7 octave and some have said 8 octave) are consistently higher than Carrey's and she had more control. Carrey is a studio singer who is helped by audio engineering. Her live performances are scratchy and much lower in the 4 octave range. Call Rippertons note a whistle note(maybe you are referring to 'Loving You"), but it's a note and it's clear.
Gliligyjlyfjlyjlhglhjjghl she can hit whistle so good it breaks glass. Don't underestimate her value she sit in couch and hit whistle note all day long ok. Quen of whistle note youtube her she is very technical most technical hostel besides flo rida

44Ziana Zain
Most powerful voice I ever heard!
She has a good tone and has 4 range octave vokal range

45Jennifer Hudson
Wow I cannot believe jennifer hudson was number 31 =0 she has such a powerful voice and she sings higher notes than beyonce she is honestly my inspiration.
