Most Inspirational Singers of 2012

The Top TenXW

1Andy Biersack

The message he puts across in black veil brides songs and the message he gives to fans is just perfect, he's always stood up for what he believes in, even if that means standing alone

Andy Biersack is the most amazing person ever

Andy eats paper. Your argument is invalid.

2Demi Lovato

DEMI SHOULD BE NUMBER ONE! She's gone through a lot through her childhood, since her father abused her. But she got back up. She says it always turns out better. To reach your dreams. And one of my all time favorite quotes by her- 'Love is louder than the pressure to be perfect' She is my role model, and a strong woman.

She's helped me stop cutting and open up about that and my eating disorder. She's such an inspiration to me, because she shows me that its okay to not be perfect all the time, and its okay to get help

She is one of the greatest singer that can sings live better than the recorded studio version, no auto tune and singing while sitting! Its hard to project the voice but she made it effortless!

Love her music

The goodness and optimism she exudes inspire me to be a better person. - BobG

She has a way of inspiring me to constantly play her music!

Something special about her voice makes me more hopeful each time I listen.
Very unusual.

The first song I listened to by her (To Believe) I realized how good she is! I recommend listening to her songs!

Um... Ashley purdy isn't a singer, he's the bass player of black veil brides! He's still amazing though!

Ashley does sing, he sung fallen angels at a concert

5Taylor SwiftTaylor Alison Swift (Taylor Swift) is an American singer-songwriter. She was born on December 13, 1989 in Reading, Pennsylvania. She is best known for writing about her personal life and not using AUTO-TUNE in her music . She became interested in country music when she was around 9 years old and after ...read more.

She is so auto tuned. Have u heard her sing live? Her recorded songs sound so high pitched but when she sings live her voices sounds way deeper and much more different which proved that she edits her voice. That proves that she's not talented. Her songs wouldn't be annoying if she didn't high pitch and auto tune them so much. She used to be my idol but now I only like singers with real talent and who DON'T sue their fans for making fan art or for making covers of their songs. The fact that her voice live sounds way different from her recorded songs already proves that she edits her voice because she's untalented and a liar. If she didn't use auto tune and u could hear her real voice then she would only be famous for her looks like she already is. During her concerts, she ALWAYS uses a backtrack to drown out her terrible and deep voice and has lip synced so many times before. I feel bad for the people that r still fans of her and think that's she's actually talented.

Taylor is one of the most genuine, respectable artists this generation. She is not only intelligent and witty and honest, but she is so open-hearted and generous. Her music alone speaks mountains of reasons why she should be labeled as inspirational, but her character just doubles that.

She is the awesomest singer in the world she is so inspirational and she is my idol and every song of hers always fits in with my life. Thank you taylor for being there when life gets hard.

She is my idol

6Vic Fuentes

Speaking from someone who has seen the effects of depression and self harm on people close to me, the fact Vic openly talks about over-coming self harm and the messages he puts across with Pierce the Veil is great. Never give up. He is an inspiration, no doubt about it.

7EminemEminem, born Marshall Bruce Mathers III, is an American rapper, actor and music producer born on October 17, 1972 in St. Joseph, Missouri. Eminem has sold over 172 million albums making him the bestselling hip-hop artist of all time. In addition to his solo career, he is a member of D12 and (with Royce ...read more.

I was never a big fan of rap. However when I had a depression, I was listening to the radio and one of his songs came on, 'Till I Collapse'. I started listening to his songs and I grew stronger. My depression stopped because of him. If it hadn't been for him who knows how my life would have turned out! He saved my life.

I'm just thinking what has put Lady Gaga in the top 10. Eminem's songs are far more motivational than Lady Gaga's. Eminem should be on the top. Every time I listen to him, I grow stronger, my body and my mind feel energized. He speaks the truth. We can relate it to our lives.

He has been through so much and he speaks the truth through his music inspiring other people that have been through tough times. He is a very cool person and not the "typical celebrity". He is still down - to - earth and humble, he never forgets Detroit and his roots.

Don't know why he's not at top of the list...

She is the first female artist to ever since Cher to get nominated by the Grammys and Emmys . In 2013, during her era on Artpop, she was chosen to perform in a concert from iTunes . ...read more.

Yeah that's right lady gaga should be at the top of this list. Although I am a lady gaga fan. That doesn't mean I can't be a supporter of Katy Perry and Ke$ha. Ke$ha was a born singer and musician. Katy was a born public idol. Lady Gaga was not a born singer. She was a born songwriter and performer, but she is also talented in the ways of Singing. She is a born LEADER. She took her past experiences with bullying and turned into her inspiration. To help people through there troubles. You judge somebody you have to look past there makeup and wigs and outfits. You look at there personality. Gaga has shown us that forget what other people say this your life don't let other people live for you. You were born this way. People can take away everything, but they can't take away your freedom. Believe in God. Gaga does. It is in her song that she wrote born this way. God doesn't make mistakes!

Lady is so so inspirational she makes people feel like they belong in this world is able to make everyone to what she to and things she puts in to her are so amazing like examples: 'baby your born this way', I'm on the edge of glory, marry the night

She's the most inspirational artist

12Katy PerryKatheryn Elizabeth Hudson (Katy Perry) was born on October 25, 1984 in Santa Barbara, California. Katy Perry is a singer, songwriter, actress and an ambassador on one of the most popular companies of now, UNICEF. ...read more.

Katy Perry has achieved so much in her career that she is just about to equal the King of Pop in terms of sales and record-breaking. She never gave up on her career and kept singing in spite of whatever haters may say about her, and that is just very inspiring. She's even making her own record label, where she can pass her own legacy to aspiring artists that have the very same dream that she had. Kathryn is also inspirational because she promotes happiness and just wants her audience to have fun, be happy and to believe in yourself, and I know she isn't the only artist to promote this but she is the most consistent at this. She teaches us that hard work may take so long but in the end you will reach your dreams. Go Katy, strong woman!

She is the best singer ever, I really thought that she was JUST a signer, but after I REALLY listened to her music and saw her movie, I understand now that she is not just a singer, she is a hero. She went through so much. I really REALLY love her music and she should be right under Taylor Swift! VOTE

Before I saw the new katy perry movie I just thought see was another very talented singer but after she is the most inspirational singer there is and everyone should be so proud of what she has achieved

Katy Perry is my number 1 inspiration because she teaches people hard work can get you anywhere and that's its ok to be you if you are gay, bi sexual or whatever she has gone through so much and still manages to slay

13Ronnie Radke

Ronnie is an awesome person. He has been through a ton of stuff. His mother abandoned him, he was an addict, and he was accused of something he didn't do. And yet, he got over his addiction, met his mother, was released, and even has a daughter he is working hard to take care of. Ronnie is easily an amazing person, and I love his music, which all tell stories that need to be told.

17Niall HoranNiall James Horan is an Irish singer-songwriter and guitarist, known as a member of the boy band One Direction.

Niall is so sweet and the nicest person ever. He's not auto tuned and doesn't edit his voice like Taylor Swift or other singers. He loves his fans and and taught me to love myself and tells his fans everyday that he appreciates us and that we r beautiful. He makes me happy and makes me laugh everyday. I don't know what I would do without him

Niall has a great voice and the sweetest personality. I love him so much, he's helped me through difficult times

What is Niall doing here?

Last time I checked, he is part of a band. If you want to add him, put One Direction, not just Niall Horan. This is ridiculous.

Directionators everywhere.

18Miley Cyrus

19Sonu Nigam

Before he became a singer he was living in the slums and he put his heart to singing and he made it to where he wanted to be. I just shows that if you put your heart to something you can always do it.
