Singers with the Most Powerful Singing Voice

The Contenders: Page 2XW

21M. ShadowsMatthew Charles Sanders, better known by his stage name M. Shadows, is an American musician, best known as the lead vocalist, songwriter and founding member of the American heavy metal band Avenged Sevenfold.

Y the hell is this person so far below the list. He has a great voice and his words thrash you like metal. No need of any instruments back to his voice. Just his voice is enough for me to listen to him.

His voice may not be the most beautiful, or the one with the widest range, but damn, you gotta give it to him, his voice is powerful, I believe that if he screamed right into my ear, the eardrum would explode.

M. Shadows should either be number one or not even be on the list it's the ultimate dissrespect to have him here with all these pop diva's and fake singers that autotune their voice. His voice is real his voice is one of a kind and no one can compete with M. Shadows or anyone in Avenged Sevenfold Period!

When he sings, he uses a lot of power. That's why he is one of my favorite singers - zxm

23James LaBrieKevin James LaBrie is a Canadian vocalist and songwriter, who is best known as the lead singer of the American progressive metal band Dream Theater.

James has a wide vocal range. He should be top 5 of all time.

24Beyonce KnowlesBeyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter, is an American singer and actress, who started out in the popular pop/r&b girl group Destiny's Child. They had multiple top 5 hits such as "No, No, No", "Say My Name", "Bills, Bills, Bills", "Survivor", "Independent Women", "Bootylicious", and "Jumpin', Jumpin" from ...read more.

She's the new modern voice of singing. It's also good to keep in mind that she sings while performing rigorous dance moves yet still sounding the same! It's amazing. She always sings live too!

Just saw her in Belgrade, and it was stunning. Definitely irreplaceable, and the most powerful voice I've ever heard in my life. Long live Beyonce!

She has it all! Her voice is in a perfect control she never missed a note. I can't belive that gaga, rihanna and minaj are in this list... #BEYHIVE!

Consistent powerful controlled voice even while dancing.

Ben burnley has the mos powerful voice that I've ever breaking Benjamin is an amazing band and so is bens voice it's very powerful

How come Ben is at 23? Must be a bad dream or something.. Oh well. Gotta say Ben is such a talanted genius musician singer with a beast voice very very deep sometimes and so powerful, I can never stop listening to bens voice to be honest.. Its TOO god damn addicting.

Ben Burnley's voice is unparalleled. And combined with his songwriting skills, makes for the ultimate male vocalist, who should be ranked much higher!

Ben has a very powerful voice. He should be at least 8 or 9.

27Aretha Franklin Aretha Louise Franklin (born March 25, 1942) is an American singer–songwriter and musician. Franklin began her career singing gospel at her father, minister C. L.

I'm sorry but come on just listen to think and you'll change sour mind

Why is Aretha Franklin not top of the most powerful singing voice list?
Just listen to 'think' or 'say a little prayer for you'.

28Adam LambertAdam Mitchel Lambert is an American singer, songwriter and stage actor. Since 2009, he has sold over 2.5 million albums and 5 million singles worldwide.

Just listen to Adam Lambert's powerful voice in perfect harmony with Queen during their EMA 2011 performance together.

How can Adam Lambert be ranked so low on this list at the moment? If his voice were any more powerful, it would register on the Richter Scale.

Electrifying voice. His range is amazing. His concerts are the only ones I go to. No other could come close to this mans unbelievable gift of voice and showmanship. Simply charming also

Few around today that could serve as front man to Queen, but Adam is doing a spectacular job honoring the late, great Freddie Mercury.

29Ronnie James DioRonnie James Dio (born Ronald James Padavona; July 10, 1942 – May 16, 2010) was an American heavy metal singer, songwriter and musician. He fronted and/or founded numerous groups including Elf, Rainbow, Black Sabbath, Dio and Heaven & Hell. He is credited with popularizing the "metal horns" hand gesture ...read more.

Dio has one of the most controlled and powerful voices Metal. Since Metal is one of the more technical (and misunderstood) genres of music I believe Dio should be way higher on this list.

Of all the singers on this list Dio is either the best, or the second best (Freddy Mercury is also one hell of a vocalist).

But to be honest, I can't even take this list seriously. I mean, Gaga on number 19? Really? As an artist she deserves respect but as a vocalist she sure doesn't belong on a list of most POWERFUL singing voices.

Ronnie James Dio, the most powerful voice in metal, at 13?
Listen to Heaven and Hell and tell me why isn't he on the top of the list. Other guys that deserve to be higher are Freddie Mercury, Myles Kennedy and Steve Perry(Aw, c'mon! You may not like him but he does have a great voice. )

Some guys that deserve to be on this list are Roger Daltrey and Paul Rodgers(Really Great voices. Belong in the top 10. But never given the credit they deserve. )

I have never heard a more powerful voice than Ronnie James Dio! I can never get enough of any of his music mostly because of his voice! For those who don't like him there is definitely something wrong with your ears!

Any 1 who thinks Ronnie james Dio is a good singer is actually a guy who doesn't know singing at all because Dio is the king of singing - amitcornelius1

Sorry Arnel fans, but Steve Perry was and is the greatest frontman journey has been blessed with. The mans voice touches the deepest part of your soul and leaves you in a beautiful trance that you never want to come out of! Listen to his song mother father and be blown away by his powerful range, and listen to his song WHEN YOU LOVE A WOMAN. This song will tug at your heart as you try to hold back your tears! SP is a god! - cutlets29

Steve is THE most powerful, passionate, emotionally moving singer in rock. There are hundreds of examples. In I Stand Alone when Steve sings "Take me in your heart" it is impossible not to. Listening to him is pure ecstasy. - CatAnna

Steve Perry is amazing. He has one of the best, if not the best voice ever. His voice is one I never get tired of and can recognize anywhere. Steve is the best at what he does. From the moment I first heard his voice I was hooked. There will never be another Steve Perry!

Great voice, he was awesome live!

This is really a powerful voice.Most of the singers above Matt don't actually have powerful voices - this list is again a list of people's favorite singers, meaning the most popular singers. How exactly the thin voice of Michael Jackson is more powerful than Pavarotti, Matt Barlow, Bruce Dickinson, Dio, Hansi Kursch, Aretha Franklin, and many more? - Metal_Treasure

36Janis JoplinJanis Joplin (1943-1970) was an American singer who rose to fame as the main singer of acid band Big Brother and the Holding Company. She was known for her eccentric hippie style and psychedelic rock music.

Janis is the best female singer of all time. Powerful voice.

The only reason she isn't no. 1 in this list is because you have not seen her perform. Listen to her and you will the fire burning inside you.

Graham Bonnet is a very very good singer with amazingly powerful voice.
Have a listen to Rainbow, Alcatrazz or Michael Schenker Group and you'll see.
Can't believe he wasn't even on this list! He should be in top 5.

One of the loudest voices ever (Rainbow - All night long) - Metal_Treasure

John Lennon is so much better than Rihanna he writes his own songs and doesn't use auto-tune!

I think singers that change the world are awesome
