The Top Ten

1
Mariah Carey
Mariah Carey should be number 1, because she has a 5 octave vocal range and has the ability to reach notes in the 7th octave vocal range as well just go back and listen to Mariah Carey first album and you will hear all of the 7th octave range high notes as well, the one song that really shows off her 5-7 octave vocal range the most is the song Vision of Love can't nobody sing that song she sang that song a certain way that nobody can't duplicate and it was enhanced I just want to say if you do try to sing that song please pray that you wont bust a vocal cord and don't try this at home.
Is an American R&B/pop singer, songwriter, record producer, and actress. She made her recording debut in 1990 under the guidance of Columbia Records executive Tommy Mottola, and became the first recording artist to have her first five singles top the U.S. billboard Hot 100 chart.
Mariah carey should be the number 1 she has that 7th octave vocal range and she beat the beatles and other biggest names in music in the mid 80's and 90's she has been recognized by the guiness world of records to be the songbird supreme and sold more than 200 million records worldwide being known as one of the most influential and richest singer ever live in the world..
[Newest]No one compare to her voice

2Demi Lovato
Demi has an amazing voice. Not only does she have amazing songs but she can also sing amazingly in live shows. She puts so much passion in her music and its clearly shown through her music. She can sing the lowest of the notes and the highest and she can hold them for so long. She holds the record for longest note held in a live performance by a Female. Her voice is like the definition of perfection to be honest, her voice just is so different from others which makes her voice so amazing! And the fact that she is just 21 is MINDBLOWING. I'm telling you, she is one of the greatest artists EVER!
Demi has one of the most powerful voices I've heard. Sure she may not be a 5 with the octave range, however her live preformances DO make up for it. No one can show nearly the same amount of emotion in her songs than Demi does. She literally pours all of her heart and soul and you can feel her pain when she sings. In my opinion, Demi, Christina, and Mariah deserve to all be top. Other artists such as Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift don't even have anywhere near the vocals Demi does however they get more recognition; totally ridiculous. People need to see how much of an incredible and strong artist Demi really is.
Demi Lovato has a strong voice. She is the most powerful singer that I've eve seen. But shes also beautiful and challenging and being inspirational to other people too. She is very nice to her fans and she is open up a real thing about her
[Newest]In terms of "power" she should definitely be in front of Mariah Carey. While Mariah has range, she is a Light Soprano. Light Sopranos aren't know for power, but for their ease of high notes. Demi is a Mezzo-Soprano, mezzos are known for their power! This pretty much sums it up...

3Whitney Houston
Houston's 1985 debut album, Whitney Houston, became the best-selling debut album by a female act at the time of its release. The album was also named Rolling Stone's best album of 1986, and was ranked at number 254 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. Her second studio album, Whitney (1987), became the first album by a female artist to debut at number one on the Billboard 200 albums chart. Houston's crossover appeal on the popular music charts as well as her prominence on MTV, starting with her video for "How Will I Know"
7 consecutive number 1 hits, highest selling debut album of all time, highest selling sound track of all time, longest lasting single at number 1 on the billboard charts ( 14 weeks ) most awarded woman in the world and more... Her vocal ability as a singer was above reproach. Her flexibility and quick transition of notes was incredible, length of notes and Amazing power was and second to non, even male, the timber and velvety quality was beauty to your ears and the voice herself had unchallengeable clarity. If you asked any singer that is before Houston on this list, who is the greatest singer you would most likely find they would say Whitney Houston.
Whitney Houston is the most powerful female vocalist I ever heard in my life time. She could out sing anyone and I mean anyone, especially in her prime. That's why she is called the "Voice". Whitney earned that title with her countless awards and numerous accolades. Ms. Houston, in my opinion, is the greatest singer that ever lived. Not only was she a powerhouse singer; however, she was an acclaimed actress that starred in many movies like Waiting to Exhale, Preacher's Wife, Body Guard and her last film was Sparkle. Furthermore, She was a model before she became a famous singer. Overall, she was extremely talented!
[Newest]No need to say why Whitney Houston's the best.

4Christina Aguilera
Her vocal range spans four octaves, which is extremely difficult for a singer to possess. This girl definitely deserves the number two spot, mainly because Mariah holds her own slightly. Christina still is an incredible singer and will definitely go done in history as one of the greatest of all time.
Absolutely beautiful voice. She doesn't even need warm up! Listen to her sing Rehab and I'm Going Down on The Voice (With Sera Hill). Definitely amazing.
Her voice is chilling and is just so powerful. When I listen to her I wonder how on Earth she isn't an angel
[Newest]She has the best voice ever. Her voice is perfect.

5Celine Dion
Celine dion has a 5 octaves Bb2-C#6,1 note & a semitone
She can even reach an E6.
Her chest voice is G5.
Listen to her song THE POWER OF DREAM, her belt note there is C5.
Listen to her song THE POWER OF LOVE, her belt note there is Eb5, and her headtone note there is Bb5.
Listen to her song SORRY FOR LOVE, her highest note there is a G5.
Listen to her song ALL BY MYSELF, her belt note there is F5.
Celine dion can belt songs and hold it for a long scnds.
Well deserve to be include in top 10.
You are a living legend.
By the way most of her Spanish songs are an A5 note.
She is the best selling female artist of all time with claimed sales of 200 million record.
Celine is the only female artist to have 2 singles with sales of over 1 million copies and she is also the only female artist to have 2 albums selling more than 30 million copies.
Now Did I have to Mention Who's the #1 Female artist
It's obviously Celine Dion. She has a five octave range and still able to hit the high notes at her age 45. No one can beat her. She is a living legend, she is the biggest selling female artist of all time! She has emotions in her songs so much
[Newest]Celine Dion is the greatest diva all of the time

6Regine Velasquez
Regine Velasquez, otherwise known as Asias Songbird, is the Philippine Association of the Record Industrys Best Selling Artist of All Time. She has sold over 7,000,000 albums in the country and 500,000 units in Asia. When shes not busy filling concert venues, Regine is out there conquering the small and big screens with movies and primetime series.

MosesG20

She's truly the singer with a powerful voice indeed, regine can go a b5 note using her chest voice and can sustain a 15 sec. Note live. She's truly the best indeed, hence regine is owning a good heart, we love you regine and may god bless you
Gosh.. I can't really imagined how all of this singers have the very powerful voice just like Mariah Carey she is one of the most powerful singer that can reach the very high notes of the songs.. :) can't wait to hear her new albums..
[Newest]Regine Velasquez have extensive vocal range


7Sarah Geronimo
Most people define "Powerful Voice" as to ability to reach high notes and to sustain it for a long seconds until blood runs in every pore of the singer... But its bloody wrong... Powerful Voice is not about imitating bird's pitch or ambulance signal... It is all about how a certain singer attracts people to listen to her voice because of its ability to address the feeling/passion of the composer of the song... And after hearing the voice you will be enchanted to listen again and again... And I think Sarah Geronimo of her generation has the one and only possesses such ability and no one else more...
I really don't believe that having a powerful voice means hitting those high notes. Having a powerful voice means that you can affect those people listening to you with the emotions that you bring to the song and I believe that Sarah Geronimo does that most of the time. Sure, she can hit those high notes like how she amazingly sung "Creep" by Radiohead but the important thing is that she sings every song with heart. A plus is that she can sing almost any kind of song and she can dance really well. ^_____^
She is the great singer in the world
[Newest]Sarah is my idol

8Perrie Edwards
Strong head as well as chest voice. She's like the queen of belts. While she can't go as a whistle tone, I've heard some pretty impressive notes come out of this girl. She's in a wonderful girl band called Little Mix, and she's only 19!
Perrie has actually been able to hit whistle notes now and even though it wasn't in a live performance she has held a note longer than Demi's record. She has a powerful voice both chest and head. She hits the high ntes with ease and the lower notes as if they were a second nature. I respect Demi and her voice but when you actually hear Perrie Edwards sing, she has a larger vocal range and a more experienced voice than Demi.
Perrie's voice can go from high to low to back high again. Her voice is powerful no matter what note she brings to the table.
[Newest]Most powerful voice I've ever heard. Just search up Perrie Edwards best vocals and you'll see why!

9Beyonce Knowles
The woman that has EVERYTHING! Shes got the hits like rihanna, the voice like whitney Houston, the looks of a supermodel, the money of a bank, the dance moves of a choreographer, she has everything. She did glastonbury (the worlds biggest music festival) only a few months ago, And she was the first female artist to headline Glastonbury and it has been around for over 20 years. She writes the majority of her songs, and she makes the dances for the majority of her songs. Jo Whiley (The uk's biggest radio/music Reviewer) Said that at Glastonbury, she re-hearsed for 10 hours a day, 6 days a week, for a few months for the gig. She did everything herself, She's a real perfectionist, planning every aspect of the show: the staging, the costumes, the dancers, the music, everything!... She is what I define as the queen of music. 16 time grammy award winner, which is the most for a well known female artist, she was the first woman to have 5 grammys in 1 night, and then she surpassed that in 2009 when she won 6 in one night (which Adele also did in 2012). Shes had 16 no.1s on the US billboard hot 100(the biggest charts in the world) and she did that on just four albums (and all four albums went strait to number 1). Madonna who is classed as the best of the best has only had 13 no.1s on 11 albums! She has been in the best girl group of all time! Shes just phenomenal! And you know what the best part is?... She did it all before her 30th Birthday!
FOR ME BEYONCE IS THE BEST! SHE CAN SING EVERY SONG! EVERY TIME I SEE HER PERFORMANCE I CAN'T EVEN SAY ANYTHING! SERIOUSLY, I LOVE THE WAY SHE DANCE! SHE CAN DANCE SHE CAN SING, SHE IS RICH, SHE HAS EVERYTHING AND SHE IS BEAUTIFUL! FOR ME BEYONCE IS THE QUEEN OF EVERY SONG, SHE CAN SING BEAT SONG, SHE CAN SING SLOW, SHE CAN SING EVERYTHING, SHE CAN DANCE WHILE SHE'S SINGING. I REALLY LOVE BEYONCE! I REALLY LOVE HER
Beyonce is too good for the Top Ten for goodness sake, let's get her to Number 1. An incredible chest voice and vocal range overall, she has a four octave vocal range WITHOUT WHISTLE REGISTER DAMMIT. No matter how high her voice goes up with her belts, it just remains the same timbre. It sounds so natural.

Do yourselves and society all a favour, get her to the top of this list.
[Newest]The queen off all entertainers... She can sing difficult songs and make them sound beautiful in our ear. She can sing well while dancing, she is naturally beautiful, and she also has an incredible life and family.

10Adele
Adele no doubt is the best singer of the current generation. Nobody compares to her. She has great vocals as well as has emotions in her voice which most of the singer these days lack.
Adele has the style and voice that no one can compare to! She is completely unique and that is why she is the greatest, there is no one else like her!
Adele has the pain in her voice because when she sings, the crowed burst into cries and she too. I think nobody should compares with adele

The Contenders

11Ariana Grande
She is amazing! She is like a new better Mariah Carey. She has 3 hit songs so far. "The Way", "Put your hearts up", and her newest single "Baby I". She is a newer artist but she is amazing. Check her out. Her youtube is "osnapitzari"
Ariana Grande have a very strong, powerful and controlled voice. She have the ability to Whistle and belt very high notes effortlessly.
Why is she #16? This just goes to show how little people know about what a good voice actually is.
[Newest]She sings strong. Including, Problem, Baby I, and Break Free.

12Charice Pempengco
Ten Songs/Productions, a music publishing company in Sweden, invited Charice to a demo-recording after producers saw her videos. She recorded seven songs " six covers and an original song entitled "Amazing". She was then invited to the South Korean talent show Star King on its October 13, 2007 edition, she sang "And I Am Telling You" and a duet of "A Whole New World" with Kyuhyun, from Super Junior.
Lots of power in this young adult's voice! She is to be commended for her accomplishments as a young artist; who is internationally renowned as one of the very best singers in the world; and who is entertaining the world with her tremendous talent.
CHARICE IS THE BEST ever singer she can now belt A6 wow for me that's amazing as thin as the radio, one thing more is she never experience voice cracking well because her voice is organize...the best singer ever! CHARICE! #1
[Newest]I love her she is amazing. She is so good and strong. I love you charice

13Kyla
There are many singers out there that you might identify as having a "powerful voice". Despite having a vocal range spanning more than 5 octaves, Kyla proves that true "power" in singing isn't just hitting high notes but singing with sincerity, clarity, and emotion. Kyla undoubtedly has one of the most UNIQUE voices of our time and continues to capture the hearts of artists worldwide.
When she off the stage you'll think she just an ordinary beautiful lady. But once the music starts to play and give her a microphone, you'll be shocked how beautiful her voice is.

She really deserve to be on this TOP 10 LIST!

My Vote Belongs to KYLA!
For me, Kyla is an exceptional singer. Her voice is very unique thus when you hear her sings you'll know that Kyla is the one singing. She also sings with all her heart.
[Newest]Kyla is the one and only :)))

14Jonalyn Viray
Is a Filipina singer and an occasional actress. She was the first ever Pinoy Pop Superstar Grand Champion. She also received five gold medals and three plaques at the 2006 World Championships of Performing Arts.
Ms. Jonalyn Viray is a real DIVA on her generations! Her performances in her Sunday show, Party Pilipinas on GMA7 is one that the viewers been waiting.
She's one of the most versatile and humble singer in the Philippines.
[Newest]Jonalyn viray is the best

15Jackie Evancho
One of the most beautiful voices I've heard in my life time. She doesn't only have amazing technique, she also has so much heart - and that's something we need more of in the music industry. Enough with all the trashy pop idols that become big and then everyone forgets about them. We need people with talent and emotion - and Jackie is one of them. So proud of her!
No screaming, belting, or auto-tune. Pure technical skill = power.

BobG

Attend at least one of her concerts. I dare you.
[Newest]She has the most beautiful Voice a Singer could ever have. She like an Angel when she is Singing And that's something we need more of in the music industry. And She would keep On Singing Well in the next few years to come.

16Barbra Streisand
Streisand is it. The power, the emotion, the control she has it in spades. Extraordinary vocal talent.
Barbra had a voice that sent chills down my spine when she hit certain notes.
Barbra is the greatest

17Rachelle Ann Go
A voice that truly amazing very spectacular and very rare that no one can imitate... She really deserve to be called as THE ULTIMATE CHAMPION AND THE FIERCE SONGSTRESS... She can do all genres with very unique rendetion!, a singer that sings from the heart truly perform with energy! Can hit super high notes, she can sustain note's.. With very good also in low notes...
She has a very strong/powerful voice and superior vocal technique. A complete package-- rachelle ann with her good looks and exceptional talent deserves to be called the ultimate champion. She is simply one of the best singers in the Philippines today
No one can beat Rachelle Ann Go's powerful voice in her generation, she's my number one idol,
[Newest]Rachelle you have a powerful voice, I'm fan fan from australia god bless love ya

18Florence Welch
Florence Welch has a nice strong chest voice and still maintains a light upper register. Though sometimes when she sings live she does not sing her high studio notes. That may be a performance choice. When Florence sings in live settings, her head voice and belts can sound a little uncontrolled due to her expressive singing style. But still, I love her voice and she is my favourite singer.
Other than having a very strong voice, she includes amazing expression with her songs that makes them astonishing.
Listen to No light, No light. This woman can hit a high note whenever she wants.

19Yvonne Muentener - YVE
Awesome voice! This lady is in my opinion the hottest rockstar ever known!
For sure she belongs on top!
Yes she belongs on top
[newest]
The most compelling voice ever.

20Pink
There are no words to describe her vocal talent and ability to sustain its power through such highly energetic and beyond physically taxing performances! Couple this with the raw emotion that flows through her more personal lyrics and you have one truly blessed artist. (in my opinion)
Amazing vocal range. No autotune bull. All songs are written by herself. A truly inspirational woman that can make anyone support her cause simply though song.
Most powerful voice and lyrics!

21Katy Perry
She has one of the most soothing voices!
Amazing voice! She just gives of a fun vibe
I live her voice and all her songs

22Ella Fitzgerald
Perfect pitch. never sang a wrong note in her life

23Shreya Ghoshal
Shreya ghoshal has the best voice ever. Her voice touches your soul. Her melody moves your body. Just hear some of her sad songs. No other artist has such a relax soft honey voice
She's only under-rated because she's Indian. She can beat some of these people here very easily. And I love them too!
I don't wanna compare Shreya with other singer (enlisted here), but I can say that she is one of the marvelous singer of all time in INDIA.
[Newest]I feel blessed to listen such a great singer shreya ghoshal who sings in south Indian as well other languages... She is amazing...

24Agnes Monica

26Sarah Brightman
She is famous for possessing a vocal range of over 3 octaves and singing in the whistle register. She sings in many languages including English, Spanish, French, Latin, German, Italian, Russian, Hindi, Mandarin Chinese and Japanese. She is often credited as the creator of this genre and remains among the most prominent performers, with worldwide sales of more than 30 million records and 2 million DVDs, establishing herself as the world's best-selling soprano of all time.
To be considered a crossover artist by the opera purists carries a lot of weight. All the better to introduce mainstream music into a higher art form. She's one of a kind!
She has an ethereal sound, truly, the voice of an Angel.

27Amy Lee
Best " all around female singer on this generation" powerful voice, haunting songs, she does transmit with her voice what the lyrics are. Best singer in the world, hands down
Why in the world is Amy number 27?! Her voice is so beautiful. Definitely should be on the top 3.
This girl deserves top 10 status, a truly powerful voice that easily expresses the meaning of her songs.
[Newest]Her voice is so strong even when singing live and she's definitely better than Christina Aguilera.

28Floor Jansen
THE most versatile vocalist. Just not so well known because she is not a mainstream singer. She can really sing everything, from opera to grunting and in the most passionate way possible. She is peerless, a phenomenon, a true force of nature.
I love Floor Jansen's variability between warm and cold when necessary. Versatile vocalist. Not just repeating her voice but can adjust it.

29Jesy Nelson
Jesy Nelson is an amazing vocalist all around. Not only is her voice unique and different, but she also offers a wide range of other talents. Such as beat boxing, harmonizing, and dancing. One thing to say for sure about her is that, she has as beautiful a personality as voice.
Love you jesy... And also LITTLE MIX. Especially Jade Thirlwall and Perrie Edwards. Come on guys... Keep voting for Jesy. Perrie and my cutie pumpkin Jade. They all deserve to be in a higher place. Come on MIXERS.

35Mónica Naranjo
Probably one of the most wondrous voices of the world.
The best voice of the Spanish music industry, brave and a risk taker, a real artist!
The most dramatic and best singer in the world.

36Tori Kelly
This voice is refreshingly pure, crystal clear and extremely versatile. Tori Kelly as a huge range, and a soothing, soulful stylistic. Her runs and riffs are intricate and impeccably flawless... She definitely has a permanent spot in my best vocals on the planet top ten. #Toraay (oh and not to mention she is gorgeous and has a contagious personality, as do many of the singers on this list)
She can hit the whistle note effortlessly she's amazing

37Jessie J
She have a wide vocal range and can do lots of vocal runs. Her highest note she belted was A5.
That control with perfect pitch is mind-blowing. Watch her work live & she is a force to be reckoned with!
Maybe the most powerful
[Newest]She as the best voice ever

38Annie Lennox
I believe the most powerful voice, and one that is conveyed calmly and without strain. Delivery is with very high precision. Contralto voice does not have as much range as some others, but then this survey is about power, not range.
Ice Cold Soul in a Nice Cold package

39Yma Súmac
The first time I heard this lady sing I was around 12yrs old and thought it the most wonderful thing I had heard

40Julie Anne San Jose

Throughout Scherzinger's career, her vocal range and music has been compared to Kelly Clarkson, Leona Lewis, Britney Spears, Sugababes, Rihanna, and Beyoncé Knowles. Scherzinger is also a classically trained opera musician.
Man, when I heard Nicole live on X factor finale with Sam Bailey, I was litterally blown away! I didn't know she has that kind of power in her voice. She's great.

43Agnetha Faltskog
Perfect couplet with Anna-Frid's contralto (She should be in this list too). Agnetha could hold a note til the commercial break!
She can pull every emotion out of a song and the listener with her singing abilities and she can hit those high notes! An amazing story teller and singer.
Great range and emotion, and incredibly pleasant to the ear.
[Newest]One of the best ever!

44Laura Branigan
The way she sings is incredible. She sings from the heart with conviction and with heart and soul. Vary few artists can do that. If you compare Celine Dion, Kate Bush and Laura Branigan singing POWER OF LOVE, tHERE IS NO COMPARISON. LAURA Branigan sings it the BEST hands done. It is completely full of rich and pure and clear vocals than any of them.
Laura had a great voice. I think people forget about her. She could, and liked to really belt them out. She had a pretty voice when simply singing nice.
Laura's voice is so powerful, more than many of the current singers. I heard she had a voice of five octaves
[Newest]Clearly the greatest singer of all time

45Dinah Jane
A powerful singer from fifth harmony with an amazing range for a 16 year old
Why is Dinah Jane so far down the list! I love her!

46Camila Cabello

47Kelly Clarkson
How is it possible Kelly's not even on the list!? She has one of the most powerful voices I've ever heard! One of the best live vocal performers I've ever heard! Demi Lovato would be very disappointed over her absence too I'm sure! (P! Nk should also be much higher on the list in my opinion)
SERIOUSLY She should be like, in the top 10.
This list is a joke. Kelly, Areatha, Xtina, Pink etc. should be much higher. Ariana Grande, and Katy Perry do NOT have POWERFUL voices. As much as I love Demi, she should also be MUCH lower.

48Nita Blanc
Netherlands has received a gifted young girl. This country is experiencing accomplishments which would be unheard merely decades ago. Nita as of March 22, is rated
16 "Best Child Singers in the World;" rated 79 "Singers With The Most Powerful Voice in the World, " which includes artists who are no longer with us; yet her career is yet in the "budding stage! " She has been described as having a "clear and crisp voice;" and
at her tender age, some listeners are surprized she has not gone professional. The "Sky is the Limit" for this young prodigy.
Take a listen to "Grenade" cover and yes, she knows how to end songs! Most artists choose to "fade" the endings they just can't "lock" the last note. You need power for termination!
Nita is developing excellent singing skills, adding to the tremendous vocal power with which she is endowed. The Top Tens - lists Nita in various categories.
[Newest]Great projection for such a young artist; potentially all-time top ten material; currently in the top ten for females alive.

67Sheryn Regis
Power Belter of the Philippines next to Ms. Regine Velasquez...
She supposed to be the winner of the Star in A Million last 2004 but unfortunately, only 1st runner-up.. Well, imagine, she is the unbeatable place in #1 position and the winner is only at #2 -4 but still, she looses.! She is also the other queen of Philippine Music Industry. Filipinos still agree that Angeline Quinto and Jonalyn Viray is the next Regine Velasquez, but for me still Sheryn.. Because in Phils. She is under-rated, they only focuses on Regine and Sarah Geronimo, they do not notice another great talent that Sheryn Regis had... If she compared to Regine, of course, Regine wins because she is already the queen and knows more styles but compared to Jonalyn and Angeline? Well, for me its Sheryn... Well, jonalyn and angeline is also a great belter.Gr! I just want to see them one day singing together...
Small but terrible voice, and relaxing for higher notes... Excellent professional singer all easy to sing
The crystal voice of Asia with amazing voice...

68Jennifer Rush
A feminine beauty in her voice with a richness that is not matched by any female singer. Pure joy to listen to.
She can't be 68. I'm sorry, you don't get to put Adele and Lady Gaga before this woman. She's up there on a Celine, Whitney, Mariah kinda level.
She is far above dion by a mile

69Kimbra

70Lisa Fischer
Powerful voice. Just listen to How Can I Ease the Pain.

71Sandi Patty

72Rachelle Ferrell
Rachelle is a singers singer. She is in the top ten, but since she is not a commercial powerhouse many fans have not heard her. It is well known in the singing community that vocalist male and female are afraid to be on the same stage with her. IE: Patty Labelle, Anita Baker, Aretha, etc. Google her and you will be blown away.
Rachelle is definitely a singer's singer. Rachelle should be in the top three of all times. Her vocal range cannot be matched.
Google her! Should be at the top of any list...7 octave range! ENOUGH SAID!

73Lara Fabian
If you've never been to heaven, listen to Lara sing and you will be. She has the voice of an angel and every time she opens her mouth her whole heart comes out. Don't believe me? Listen to "Adagio", now that's a powerful voice right there.

74Tamar Braxton
Tamar is the best!

75Donna Summer
Her vocal range spans 3,5 and according to some 4 octaves. The most dramatic and full voice I've ever heard, so emotional voice, a voice that has its own personality and is so powerful yet vulnerable, so sweet when whispering and so impressive when she was belting like an opera act. Great writer and producer of her own songs and some hits for other artists. The first and only artist who has three consecutive number one double albums on billboard 200,4 number ones on billboard hot 100, the first African-American who received heavy rotation along with Michael Jackson for the video of the anthem she works hard for the money,100 million records sold and many more accomplishments. One of the first, really big crossover Superstars that paved the way to Madonna and others. The one and only DISCO Queen/Rock Hall of Fame inductee/Funk/Pop/Dance/Soul multitalented legend, DONNA SUMMER!

76Lzzy Hale
Great singer with power that could stand up against anyone. Her live stuff is better than the recordings. Live is where her power really comes thru.
I can't believe that people put demi lovato in top ten and Lzzy Hale here...
How come? Lzzy isn't just a singer... Her voice and performance together are WONDERFUL!
People please check it out
And then see who is better
She can hit notes like nobody's business!

77Tina Turner
Need no words! A Powerhouse!

78Patsy Cline

79Pilita Corales

80Nina
The philippine Soul Siren, I like the way she sings, she can do coloratura passage easily, she can also use whistle register, and do vocal belting, I always love to hear her songs, I can say she is the only female singer who possess the most beautiful voice. Her voice type is Lyric coloratura soprano with 4 octave vocal range.

81Marilyn McCoo

Her voice is so rich! She has the looks and voice of an angel...
