Best Female Singers of All Time


The Contenders: Page 24XW

461Katie Noonan

Lead singer for Australian band "George". She has the strongest voice I have ever heard. Her range is AMAZING. She should be number one.

462Annika Norlin
463Lindsey Haun
464Susanna Hoffs

How is this possible? If you can't have in mind songs like "Manic Monday", "Waiting for You" or "My side of the bed" when you are looking for the greatest voice, you still have a lot to learn about music.

Front Woman for the greatest female band ever, The Bangles

465Sandie Shaw

Who compiles these lists? I am assuming this is an American site. You Americans missed so much when you refused Sandie a work permit back in the 60's. She then concentrated on Europe, Canada, South America, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa who all welcomed her with open arms. Should be much much higher.

466Jennifer Holliday

One of the best singers of all times. Very under rated and it is a shame that her success did not last. The emotions that come through when she sings is very unique.

She is the only singer with emotion! Plus, her voice booms outs on pitch, in tune, and sounds loud and amazingly perfect!

Steeleye Span's magnificent voice, none better anywhere!

468Anna Nalick

She has one of the best ranges I've ever heard, like Sarah McLaughlin or Tori Amos. And she's a songwriter, and all others like Beyonce and Mariah Carey would be nowhere without people like Ms. Nalick. "Breathe(2AM)" is absolute GENIUS.

I Agree! She should be at LEAST #20, but I think She's not as good as Beyonce.

469Mary Pascoe

i totally agree! she reminds me of like if sarah mclachlan and tori amos had a love child. lol! such a pretty voice. :-*

470Natasha Bedingfield

Natasha should have been in Brittney's spot. She is awesome!!

471Katharine McPhee

Katherine so far is the best her voice is inccredible and she is indeed very beautiful

She should have won America Idol. As good as most on this list

472Phyllis Hyman

Although she never got the recognition she deserved she was an excellent singer.

Ashlee is my idol! I will always look up to her! She is such a strong individual and I strongly admire her for that!
