The Top Ten

Ann Wilson
Ann Wilson of HEART has the best female voice of rock. She is a song writer and plays several instruments as well. She has more talent than any "divas". Wish she would get the recognition she deserves.
This is just how this poll should be, No two woman come close to Ann & Nancy Wilson They are the best at what they do and that is ROCKKKKK!
A talented and well rounded musician! Ann and Sister Nancy have more "HEART" and talent than any other female s in the music industry! I can't believe they have been overlooked for so long!
[Newest]I do not know who this is

2Sarah Brightman
Sarah is not a "talented musician" but a living aria from heaven!
sarah is one of the most talented musician in the world, she have a beautiful voice, it sounds like angels


3Nancy Wilson
Nancy Wilson is awesome listen to her versions of "Don't ask my Neighbor", "I Can't Make You Love Me" and "Don't Want To Be Lonely Tonight" where she out performs the singers who had hits with them.
Nancy Wilson is the most all around talented guitarist, singer, songwriter, producer, live performer in rock music, she is in a league all by herself!
Yea you gotta agree Nancy can sing. Not as good as big sister Ann but better than most any one else.

4K.S. Chithra

5Mariah Carey
I think anyone with a 5 octave range is talented. Just saying.

6Avril Lavigne
She's the best thing that ever happened to the music Industry. Her songs actually make sense and anyone can relate to them. The songs like "Everybody hurts, " "Nobody's home, "Keep holding on, " these are the kind of songs that help you through hard times in Life.
The best female singer in the industry. She is also underrated. Smile, Innocence and most of all, My happy ending makes her collection the best in all of others. She is just one awesome singer. I hope she keeps the good work and sings like she did.
Deserves to be at number 1.

11Alanis Morissette
This is a true rock star in the mode of an Ann Wilson. Alanis can sing, write and play guitar just like Wilson.

12Stevie Nicks

13Cara Dillon
Ireland's finest folk singer of the decade. She can sing, play the violin and and flute and interpret songs as good as Eva Cassidy.. She's now nominated in three categories for the BBC radio awards for 2010, go Cara!
OMG Cara's so awesome, I'd die just to be able to see her and Sam and Brian and Ed in concert someday. I'd probably end up being carted off by security but hey.


14Kate Bush
She has an amazing voice, she writes her own lyrics, and she is an amazing dancer. Truly fabulous.
