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.

He is the most versatile singer we ever had!

3Udit Narayan

Udit narayan has an amazing voice. He is the best singer!

He has the best voice and the songs he sings in other languages in kannada tamil with expressions that is really awesome

Very natural and clear voice and great personality singer. He is the legend of Bollywood playback singer. His duets with Alka yagnik & Lata mangeshwor and 2009: Padma Shri : India 's 4th highest civilian honor given by Government of India. Many Filmfare Awards came for songs in the movies. He has given many super hits songs to India, Nepal, Tamil etc. Really god gifted singer.

Singing more than 15000 songs in more than 30 languages in different genres for more than 30 years is really something that is great and enough to say that he is the best. The person who has sweet voice and is humble and respects everyone.

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.

Incomparable... Most versatile singer ever...

6Kumar Sanu

He holds a Guinness World Record for recording 28 songs in a single day Awards *. 2009: Padma Shri : India 's 4th highest civilian honor given by Government of India. *. IIFA : Artist of the decade. *. The government of Denton in America observe Kumar Sanu Day on 31 March He won the first of his record five consecutive Filmfare awards as Best Male Playback Singer.

After rafi saab and kishore the, kumar sanu gave us some great and beautiful songs to Indian film industry. He was singing emperor during 90s. Even today one can feel this if s/he hears his romantic songs sung during 90s.

Kumar sanu is the best

9KJ 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.

God! He has redefined the voice of god.

10SP 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 first on the list his music is the best

His is the ever-green singer for trough-out My life...

12Honey Singh

He is best is Asia. He has like 60 or 70 awards. He has also charged Rs.7 million for a song in an upcoming film titled Mastaan starring Naseeruddin Shah. It is the biggest amount paid to a song artist in Bollywood to date, making Honey Singh the highest-paid musical artist in Bollywood.

He is the highest paid, and his songs are always loved especially by the young generation.

13Kunnath Krishnakumar

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.

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...

No other Singer as Best as K. K in the Bollywood...

He should be in top 10

14Mohammad Aziz

No other singer has such a meleodous voice as mohd aziz.

Muhammad Aziz after (Late) Muhammad Rafi is a King of play back singing in India. Mohammad Aziz can sing every type of singing like Melody, Tragedy, Sufi and National Songs, right now in India no body can sing likh Muhammad Aziz and I also Disagree with this voting its not fact based Muhammad Rafi should be at top singers in India no one compete him.

Mohd Aziz is a True legend and deserves to be amongst top 10

His voice is just like drugs..

Please put the name of this greatest singer in top position. Only people who have not heard his songs or do not have any knowledge regarding rating a singer can do such injustice to all time great singer like our beloved Mukesh saab. Please do not vote without knowledge. This is my humble request all those who vote

His voice is just amazing. And what's more is his style. He sang every song with full effort. He entertained us for more than 3 decades. Wonder, why he isn't included in the top three.

He has not learnt but his voice is extremely melodious

One of the best singer in India.. Should be in top 5 if not at top

17Abhijeet Bhattacharya

One of the finest playback singer with a youthful mesmerizing soothing voice

I would have respected him more if he stuck to singing. From comparing poor people to dogs, to criticising atif Aslam. He has totally gone was below that belt. Let's forget him as he never existed.

One of the best male voice

He is a Rockstar.

19Manna Dey

One of the greatest living classical singers of all times

He is better than other classical singers


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.

Bhagavthgeetha says why ghantasala is on 1st.
He is truly Honored and versatile Singer. His private rendition "Bhagavad Gita" is daily played in the Tirupathi Temple.

Introduced the technique of changing the voice pitch and diction to suit the onscreen actor's performance. Singer of the southern film music in 50's and 60's. Was a carnatic musician, versatile playback singer & music composer. The only playback singer whose numerous statues have been installed across Andhra Pradesh, India.

Command on Telugu language and culture, strong base of classical music, divine voice quality and extraordinary ability to express the meaning of the lyrics - be it romance, devotional, pathos, anger, etc. He is a boon granted to the Telugu music lovers.

Ghantasala should not be rated in this list... He is above all this.
