282 Carole King

This is a legendary woman singer and her songs are great. You won't find another Carole king in the world like her. She is remembered for the brilliant lyrics she wrote. that really made music what it is today I mean she's lovely.

Carole King is an ultimate legend, not the most striking but such passion and soul she puts into her work. Its disgraceful how low down she is

Excellent songwriter, piano player, singer of the 60's. She has a raspy voice and earthy style.

Great great performer, should be way way up in the list!

283 Emmylou Harris

This lady has the purest, clearest and probably the most entriging sound out there today and for the last 45 years. Emmylou along with dolly parton, linda ronstadt, and judith durham deserve to be in the top ten. You need to look closer at all their accomplishments and overall sales.

...especially duets with Gram Parsons

284 Fantasia Barrino

Fantasia is definitely one of the top 25 female "sangers" of all time. She has one of the most powerful voices that we have heard in a long time. When she did the salute to Patti Labelle live; that just separated her from the rest of the pack right then and there. She just can flat out sang...

the world no nothing about singing if fantasia is not announce one of greatest singers

Sings from the heart, and that which comes from the heart reaches the heart!

286 Patti Smith Patti Smith Patricia Lee "Patti" Smith is an American singer-songwriter, poet, and visual artist who became a highly influential component of the New York City punk rock movement with her 1975 debut album Horses.
287 Patricia Kaas

One of the most addictive, most intriguing voices in the world. Her voice can carry the story of the song, her voice is a story on its own. Technically perhaps not the strongest and not always how it should be, but her power lies in persuasion. This is an artist that many people will still recognize in the 22nd century, she's too unique and out-standing to be lost in the vast range of good female singers.

wonderfully alluring voice. Patricia Kaas has remarkable control, a remarkable voice, style, and a taste for good material, often with interesting lyrics, too.

A wonderful singer with an extremely seductive voice. I like her incredibly. She has an amazing style and her repertoire is colorful.

Come on! Lita Ford has got to be higher than this! A lot higher! She is a rock singer! A great one! And she is ranked #396 behind a bunch of pop singers that sound like dying cats! It's an outrage! - Shake_n_Bake13

I have a hard time choosing my favorite female singer, but I think Lita Ford takes the cake. #370?! You've got to be kidding.

290 Tracy Chapman Tracy Chapman Tracy Chapman is an American singer-songwriter, known for her hits "Fast Car" and "Give Me One Reason", along with other singles "Talkin' 'bout a Revolution", "Baby Can I Hold You", "Crossroads", "New Beginning" and "Telling Stories".

This woman is really talented and is severely underrated way down here. "Fast Car" is one of the best songs ever written.

Her voice is magic, she plays a wide range of instruments, she writes her own songs, what more..?

Tracy is unique with a unique blend of music and instruments. Should be in top 20

Hands down should be top ten is probably my #2
