2Mohamed Rafi
Rafi the greatest singer in the whole wide world without doubt. People in the west have seen many T.V. adverts with M. Rafi songs and that is incediable and mind blowing.

He is the greatest singer ever born in the world. He had a unique voice quality, If God once again tries to create voice like Rafi he wont be able to recreate it because God creates unique things only once and that is Rafi sahab's voice.
Rafi is the best, legend of legends can sing any type of song with east, he can surf from high to low with ease. Equally melodious voice, well balanced with right base and high range. His diction is fantastic, you may feel every word. Incomparable.

3KJ Yesudas
Yesudas, 50 Years completed in Kannada, Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam Film Industry as Playback Singer. Yesduas bagged more than govt awards from National and various state level. Yesudas has won the National Award (Hindi, Telugu and Malayalam) for the Best Male Playback Singer seven times, the most by any Indian singer.
Yesudas is the best in the world - not only respected in our country - but the entire music world - I would say when God desired to sing, He created Yesudas and sent him to our Universe. He handles both light music and classical music in the same ease and comfort. There is so much to learn from each and every song of his. It is sung with that much perfection which nobody else can repeat or try.
The celestial singer YESUDAS is the best male singer of India. YESUDAS is only the god of music or Voice of god. Living Legend.

5Kishore Kumar
I think there is something mysterious in his voice that increase his voice quality and prefer him as the talented Indian male-singer ever
Most casual/flexible/apt/realistic/singer ever born in indian soil
Upon reflecting on the movie industry between the 70's until the 80's it will come to light that many heroes benefited in terms of attaining popularity with their cinematic fans attributed to the playback voice of Kishore Kumar. This sentiment is seldom acknowledged by these actors. He was a star worthy of infinite praise. In my opinion he ought to feature as number one on your list.

8SP Balasubramaniam
SPB is the greatest ever singer in India.
Unfortunately he was recognized as a south Indian singer inspite of his best efforts he had done.
The biggest fun is here whenever anyone asks him who is the best singer?
He answers there are many great singer than me in the past and present.
He is an uncomparable singer.
The greatness of SPB, as I have seen, is in giving life to compositions of even lesser known composers. -music director
I think India may or may not produce such a genius singer in upcoming century.
He is the singer of the century. - Koti.
I don't whether the two greats KJY or SPB are comparable. But SPB can sing any type of song and that too he can make audience think that the actor himself sung that song so well.
He should be on top of list. No male singer in India had that great pitch level than SPB. SPB holds the guinness record of singing most number of songs in the world. If awards is the criteria then chitra is best female singer than latha Mangeshkar. Latha recieved just three whereas chitra recieved six already. Still she is going.
MOreover SPB is the best singer ever in India.

13Kunnath Krishnakumar
K. K is worlds best singer... Great great great great voice & very down to earth personality, real artist who loves only and only music.. No show off...
Why isn't K.K. on the top? Listen to any K.K. song, and you will be mesmerized and feel intoxicated with the melody of his music and voice. Gosh he is so much better than singers like Atif Aslam, Kumar Sanu, and Shaan. He should at least on the top 5 along with the likes of Sonu Nigam and Udit.
No other Singer as Best as K. K in the Bollywood...
More comments about Kunnath Krishnakumar

Ghantasala, the great is the embodiment of versatile perfection and divinity in playback singing, unparalleled even today. Not only filmy songs of various genres, No playback singer has been able to sing padyams and sanskrit slokas similar to the beauty of Ghantasala's majestic melodious voice. Almost all of his music directed films, songs are hits. Illayaraja says : Ghantasala alone is playback singer who can give a guarantee that all the songs in a film will be hit. Mohd rafi, KJY, SPB lata mangeshkar all rated ghantasala greater among playback singers. The only playback singer in the country who won best singer award for 3 decades in a film industry, ruled without competition with full dominance for entire career of 3 decades, only due to his genuis gifted musical skills and melodious voice.

Ghantasala was a gifted singer and extremely talented in bringing precise emotions in voice. Very gentle and kind person. Telugu people are very fortunate he did not move to other areas like Hindi, then they would have lost him. He respected and mentored many young singers. Never he would have talked negative about any other singer. Rafi was another great singer. Drawing comparisons and ridiculing great singers by their fans is unfortunate.
The greatest ever playback singer born. He is the only one who ruled a film industry for 3 decades without any competition due to his sheer genius skills and most majestic melodious voice which was divine and peerless. Was a accomplished music director and carnatic musician as well, His contribution to telugu film music remains unparalleled. Only singer whose numerous statues find place in Andhra pradesh, india.
