The Top TenXW

1Ella Fitzgerald

There is no way I could let 'The First Lady Of Song' be anywhere but #1 Just exquisite. - Britgirl

2Sarah Vaughan

Just so soulful. And honest. I totally believe that she believes in the beautiful songs she sings. - Britgirl

3Nina Simone

She is One of the best. She is able to give every Song her own touch. And that is often better than the original.

4Madeleine Peyroux
5Peggy Lee

Who can forget the enchanting, 'There'll Be Another Spring' and 'Fever'? Not I, Sir. Not I... - Britgirl

Always and forever will be number 1 in my opinion... One of the most amazing, charismatic singers of all time.

Beautiful voice and wow! What a pianist! - Britgirl

8Etta James

I LOVE HER! I'm into modern pop music mostly, but her voice draws me into that older soul vibe stuff. LOVE IT!

A vote for you Cookie. If you added her she must be fine. Will get around to listening to something from her sometime. - Britgirl

You encouraged me so I voted her too...not my fault! Hehehe! I'm thinking of making a list with the most beautiful songs that Diana has sung. When you feel like listening to her, you can take a look at it. I'm making it now, yes I decided it!
