Female Singers With the Best Range

The female singers with the most range and ability.

The Top TenXW

1Jackie EvanchoJacqueline Marie "Jackie" Evancho is an American classical crossover singer who gained wide recognition at an early age and, since 2009, has issued an EP and five albums, including a platinum and gold album and three Billboard 200 top 10 debuts.

Most beautiful voice I have ever heard. Sings like an angel.

Just when you think her voice cannot possibly get better - it does. Her highs give you goose bumps, her lows catch you off guard, and the color of her mid-range puts a smile on your face every time. She was born to sing. She is destined to be one of the great vocalists of all time - she is definitely one of the best of our time. I cannot even begin to imagine how she will sound by the time she is in her 20s... God is such a show-off, sometimes!

Jackie's vocal chords and physiology have been carefully analyzed to discover how she does it, but she is normal in every way. Experts suggest that there may be additional neural structures in her brain, gifting her with an ability to project emotions by driving her body to produce the 'right' sounds.
Whatever is going on, it works, as evidenced by the millions who have experienced the 'Jackie Effect'. I am one of them, and can attest that it is real, and it is wonderful!

It's not the number of notes in her range, but the clear, consistently pure quality of every note within that range that makes her such a great singer. - BobG

What is striking about her voice is the purity. It is so clear and recognizable. Once you hear a song, you are sure it is her.

See the live performances of her, it is unbelievable to hear that the range and quality is exactly the same as the records. The best female singer until now and for ever.

Have always loved her voice-so beautiful: crisp & clear, always the perfect measure of emotion, graceful and an enviable vocal range! A truly gifted soul and a Swede to boot!

No doubt her voice has great range. While so underrated, her vocal ability rank is supposed to be higher in all lists.

Splendid singer and songwriter. Incredible range and energy. The lyrics are full of common sense served in a funny crazy way. She's brilliant and unique!

She surely is the most powerful singer with the widest range and the best lyrics. Congrats to Switzerland!

If it comes to range, power, talent and even beauty then I think immediately about the Swiss rock band Sugamice. Yvonne is for me the greatest superstar.
