Most Unique Singing Voices

121Adam GontierAdam Wade Gontier is a Canadian musician and songwriter. He is the lead singer, rhythm guitarist and main songwriter for Saint Asonia, but is best known as the former lead singer, rhythm guitarist and main songwriter of the Canadian rock band Three Days Grace.

Adam has one of the best voices today.. His range is amazing for a guy singer (just look up his cover of Jar of Hearts by Christina Perri), and he's able to add a raspy growl to his voice on command. Whenever I hear him I get chills.

How in hell is Adam Gontier 118th? He should be #1! His voice is truly unique and combined with actual capability to sing, I think he has one of the best voices of our time.

Don't know how you retards vote or on what basis but when it's about real deal he sings high in that creaky or grit voice which is why Adams's Adam, non of the singers could copy the singing style of his neither the old legendary bands. He used to give goosebumps to the current bands till he was in TDG... No competition for Gontier"_i_"

I love this guy's voice. The way he sings is just incredible. He can go from screaming or singing gently. God I just love Adam's voice.

122Cyndi Lauper

She has the cutest voice and a very good soprano! She should be rewarded more in the 80's, the fact that she had been through many troubles! She doesn't do any sexual content in videos too

You ARE ALL CRAZY... CYNDI HAS THE BEST AND MOST UNIQUE SINGING VOICE THE INDUSTRY HAS EVER SEEN. LISTEN TO ANY OF HER SONGS "TIME AFTER TIME", "SHE BOB" OR "TRUE COLORS" AND YOU'LL AGREE WITH ME 100%.
CYNDI IS ALSO THE MOST UNDER APPRECIATED SINGER EVER.

Should be in the top ten. World famous and who else sounds like her?

125Joe Elliot

his vocals on def leppard's pyromania are the best vocals in metal bar none

How do you "know right away it's him" when he doesn't even usually sing?

I never cared for his voice. Too effeminate sounding.

129Nat King ColeNathaniel Adams Coles, known professionally as Nat King Cole, was an American singer who first came to prominence as a leading jazz pianist.
130Wes BorlandWesley Louden "Wes" Borland is an American rock musician and artist. He is best known as the current guitarist and backing vocalist of the nu metal band Limp Bizkit and as the lead vocalist of the industrial rock band Black Light Burns.
131Marina DiamandisMarina Lambrini Diamandis, known professionally as Marina and the Diamonds, is a Welsh singer-songwriter.

Ok, why is she not in the top ten? NO ONE has a singing voice like Marina Diamandis. Just listen to one of her songs. People are confusing "unique singing voices" for "best singing voices" or "favorite singing voices." Most of the people on this list have voices like every other singer out there, but Marina's voice is unlike any other I have ever heard. I can't think of anyone whose voice comes even close to sounding like hers.

Her Stage and Musical name is "Marina And The Diamonds". You are using her personal name! - mood333

It's impossible to mistake her gorgeous voice for another

She need to at least be in the top 50!

134Hyde (L'arc~en~ciel)

One of the most unique voices that you will ever heard and also changing from low pitch to high pitch with falsettos is very hard to do. If you fail to do it, it will destroy your vocal chords and you cannot ever speak again unless you are lucky. - ronluna

Hyde has to be the best singer ever... He's voice is so different from most of singers, it's so unique... , I bet you've never heard something like that before... When he sings hitomi no jyuunin at the smile tour, wow that was one of his best performances ever... He's amazing, simply the best singer for me...

The best, the most unique and the most flexible voice - ronluna

His voice is as if a Magic!

135Mariah CareyMariah Carey is an American singer, songwriter, record producer, and actress. She won 5 Grammys, got her documentary movie "Glitter" and also one of the biggest best-selling women in the music industry. ...read more.

Mariah Carey, most definitely. Even if you don't like her, you'll recognize the voice when you hear it. There's no other person alive who can sing like Mariah. The Most unique I've ever heard.

Talk about manipulation. The lady can make her voice sound like anything she wants and sings in a vast amount of genres. From RNB, to Pop, to Hip hop, to jazz, to reggae etc. She's always on key and sounds just just as amazing, if not better, when she sings live. MC all the way, baby.

I would have to say that there may be some bias pertaining to the types of song sung, the genres dabbled with and the all round popularity of a singer, when I view this list and how the people have voted. I for one think that Mariah Carey has an undeniably unique voice. I quite frankly would vote for another singer if this was a list about the greatest singer's of all time, but this is about the quality of a voice and how unique it is, and so my vote goes to this woman right here.

ANYONE can recognize this voice.

Mariah's voice is distinguishable in the first few seconds of a song. I understand that there may be better singers out there, but for me it's Mariah all the way. It's not only her various and unique tones - silky whispers, husky and dark low notes, bell-like belts that ring with resonance, whistle notes that range from soft and airy to piercing - but her incredible style that is so incredibly indentifiable. Her vocal runs are so inventive (songs like "Vision of Love, " "Forever, " and "Lead the Way" come to mind...). Okay, some people may not like melismata, but I enjoy it (when not overused, which is something Mariah is not, in my opinion, guilty of! Peace!

Mariah Carey must be at number one of the list. No other singers and no one can sing like Mariah. Her voice range is amazing, over the world.

136Celine Dion

Taking into consideration that she takes on a job in the middle of the Desert working 6 nights a week for 5 years running and sells out all her shows and unmistakakble, there aren't any artist that would hold up a year let alone 5 and still has a fantastic family life, so in my Opinion she should be number 1, I have heard her voice over power most, at times where I thought she is at peak without any great difficulty she over powers and makes it look easy. This is one incredible women! God deserves all the Glory and honour

"The Power Of Love"

She is so talented singer and she is the one who can sing a high notes although she is getting old. She is titled as "THE UNMISTAKABLE VOICE" and "THE VOICE OF AN ANGEL". Her voice is so strong and powerful and I love all her songs specially "to love you more".

Okay, you would recognize Rossa or Wes Borland before you would recognize Celine Dion? Right...

Celine should be in the top 10. I believe she has the most amazing female voices EVER!

138Bryan Adams

I've listened to hundreds of singers, but only one ever sounded like Bryan Adams, and that was Bryan Adams. His voice also works perfectly with every song he sings, making it not only unique, but also one of the best.

His voice is so beautifully raspy and edgy. He suits rock genres the best.

To me, he has always had a beautiful, unique, one-of-a-kind voice. Yet, he has never had a single singing lesson in his life! How can you top that?
