Best Singers of All Time

The Contenders: Page 11

201 Sebastian Bach Sebastian Bach Sebastian Philip Bierk, known professionally as Sebastian Bach, is a Canadian heavy metal singer who achieved mainstream success as frontman of Skid Row from 1987-96. Since his departure from Skid Row, he has had many television roles, acted in Broadway plays, and leads a solo career.

I honestly have no idea why he's 261. His range is UNBELIEVABLE, and I think he's a far better singer than Axl Rose. I mean his screams are enough to give goosebumps (listen to Angel Down) but have you listened to Quicksand Jesus his voice is GORGEOUS. He is the true God of metal and hard rock singing and if all of you are so deaf at least put him in the top 100. I mean 261 you've got to be kidding me! He's #1 in my book, tied with Freddie Mercury.

He is the father of hard rock/metal singing. I mean his high pitched screams that no one in their right mind would even try to recreate are just kick ass! His vocal range is like non I've ever heard in my life.
In my opinion he's #1.
Bach Rules!

For me he has is the best vocalist of all time, I listen music lot and whenever it comes to vocal then sebastian bach comes to my mind.
I love MEGADETH and PORCUPINE TREE

Legend - made Skid Row the insane band that they are

202 Regine Velasquez Regine Velasquez Regine Velasquez-Alcasid, dubbed as the Asia's Songbird is a Filipina recording artist, host, producer, philanthropist, commercial endorser, actress, and an Asian pop culture icon. She is widely known for possessing an extensive vocal range.

Ms. Regine is not only an only a singer but she is A PROFESSIONAL SINGER because she is known as the ASIA'S SONGBIRD and she lived in the Philippines because PNoy is not only a singer but they can be a Professional Singer like Charice Pempengco. Ms Reg can also HIT the High Notes that she is singing like Mariah Carey's song and also to the other known singer.
- MosesG20

One of a kind, gold and platinum albums, great audience in concerts, many blockbuster movies. I think she is the only singer that can sing well with high notes even suffering from harsh voice. A spectacular singer indeed. A singer that sings full of emotions and feelings that you don't have to look at her. Fabulous and low-profiled singer. She even do not forget to help those people in need.

An extra-ordinary singer... Multiplatinum albums, sold-out concerts, movies... Shes amazing... REGINE VELASQUEZ, ASIA'S SONGBIRD.. A VOICE TO BEAT...!

The best singer of all time regine

203 James Taylor James Taylor James Vernon Taylor is an American singer-songwriter and guitarist. A five-time Grammy Award winner, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2000. He is one of the best-selling artists of all time, and he has sold more than 100 million records worldwide.

I cannot believe someone has not put him in! One of the softest and most comforting voices ever and also with great tone. One of the only singers who voice could make you cry.

One of the smoothest voices around. Sweet baby James is one of the greatest singer/songwriters ever.

In his prime, no one came close to his beautiful tone. No one.

So many terrible singers ahead of him. This list is terrible. James deserves top 70. - Powerfultekin

204 Judy Garland Judy Garland Judy Garland, born Frances Ethel Gumm (June 10, 1922 – June 22, 1969) was an American singer, actress, and vaudevillian. The American Film Institute named her 8th greatest female star of classic American cinema. She's also the mother of actress and singer Liza Minnelli.

Judy Garland played the role of "Dorothy" in the classic film "The Wizard of OZ, " and popularized one of the all-time best hits, "Over the Rainbow;" she had a powerful, clean voice even at a very tender age back in the 1950s, as Jackie Evancho, Bianca Ryan, and Nita Blanc now have in the 2010s. The world lost a tremendous talent much too soon in her career.

How can Judy Garland not be on this list let alone not in the top ten... She is the best there has ever been... Her voice is perfection personified... - FeatherFour

Judy Garland is the greatest singer in the world. She is so amazing. There is no reason that she is not number one on this list. She is my favorite singer. She is number one in my heart. I can't believe that Britney Spears beat her.

The person who made this chart probably never seen a lassic movie

206 Lacey Sturm Lacey Sturm

Um, Number 213? Really?! When I saw this poll Lacey Sturm was the the first person that came to mind. I mean, She's the best! Her & Elizabeth Hale.

Why isn't she higher on this list?! She has an epic voice, and she is so awesome!

We love you morteza (ta abad) forever

People don't know real music like what flyleaf makes.

209 Geoff Tate Geoff Tate Geoff Tate is a German-born American singer and musician who rose to fame in the 1980s with the progressive metal band Queensrÿche.

It is undeniable that Freddie Murcury is the greatest singer of all time but the reason I'm voting for Geoff Tate is because having him at number 153 is just a disgrace to music. This guy deserves to be in the top ten or at least in the top 20. This guy has a pair of vocals that could sing anything. I've made my friends listen to Queensryche and were all taken a back by how amazing this guy is. The only reason he's so low is because Queensryche isn't popular enough. - metalmaiden

Tate has an operatic rock voice, and can carry a high note forever. He would be perfect for Phantom of the Opera. His vocals our very powerful that can go high, but he has a natural low voice. He definitely deserves to be in the top ten for male singers.

99... this list is a joke... eddie vedder, geof tate... all of them not in the top ten slot... and only to be preceeded by britney! Tate is Progressive rock's staple diet.

Some people are just doing singers of bands they like, not people who have amazing voices. Best singer has to be Geoff Tate, just listen to Queen of the Reich.

She has two siblings, Chuck and ...read more.

202?!?!?!? SERIOUSLY?!?! Lana Del Rey is easily one of the best singers of all time and should be in the top 10, not stuck at 202! Lana is a queen who is very versatile in music, somewhere on the fine line of pop, alternative, and washed out punk rock-ish. Her blend of music might not sound good, but she's so unique and beautiful. Her voice is so unique, and she worked hard for many years to try to become well known and deserves to be even more well known. Everybody in the world should be given a copy of Born To Die, Paradise or Ultraviolence and not listen to the crap most of the world does listen to. Lana Del Rey is QUEEN!

Her voice is so strong and powerful. She should be more well known. ' Born to die' is so lovely! I hope she advances in her career, and come out with more songs.

This woman's voice is heaven. Everyone knows her and she needs to be in the top ten at least!

What was happen with this world? Lana Del Rey one of the best singer, she should be in the top

211 Michael Hutchence Michael Hutchence

Michael Hutchence is without a doubt the greatest singer and songwriter ever the song Don't Change has taught me not to try and be someone else to just be me and enjoy life I love him so much I wish he was still here....

Michael Hutchence deserves more then rank 214. Don't Change, Never Tear Us Apart, Need You Tonight, New Sensation. Best songs in the WORLD! WHAT HAS THIS WORLD COME TO? MICHAEL SHOULD BE NUMBER ONE! LOVE YA MICHAEL!

NO ONE CAN BEAT HIM HE DESERVES TO ME IN THE TOP 2 HE WOULD OF BEEN BIGGER THAN JOHN LENNON I LOVE YOU MICHAEL.
- JHutchence

Michael Hutchence need to be much higher he vocaltexture and ability as a frontman is up there with Jim Morrison and Mick Jaggar

213 Patti LaBelle Patti LaBelle Patricia Louise Holt-Edwards better known under the stage name Patti LaBelle, is an American singer, author, actress, and entrepreneur.

Pure vocal power and range packaged beautifullly with the greatest vocal control and depth on record. This is a true example of unmatched substance and god-given talent,in five tremendous octaves.

Patti LaBelle is absolutely number 1 in my opinion. How the hell is she anywhere below at least top 20? Clearly people with no ears made this list.

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

Obviously most people in today's society have never even heard of Dream Theater, as today's music industry is all revolved mostly around the rap and pop scene. If only these people could have the ability to spread their tastes and try listening to something as talented as this, then this band might actually change their opinion on what music they like. Dream Theater is no doubt one of the most technical bands in history, and they are considered to be one of the best bands in the Progressive genre, if not the most popular. I am a huge supporter and loyal fan of Dream Theater, and will never let any of their CD's lie around for a couple weeks without being played.

James Labrie is possibly the greatest singer in the progressive metal genre. He has outstanding range! I couldn't imagine anyone else singing for Dream Theater in the way he does.

Dream Theater's vocalist, great range, awesome frontman, better than much of the people in this list.

332? I think I might kill myself - jimicenafromintempo

I love you so much

217 Diana Ross Diana Ross

I do not agree with this list at all. Diana is barely in the top 200 & Cher is like 150 while people like Katy Perry & Taylor Swift are in the top 20? Diana, Cher, Tina, etc are extremely influential & talented women and deserve to be in the top 20 at least. I'm all for supporting the new talent but then why aren't artists like Lana Del Rey & Sia near the top of the list?

The voice of love. She has proved to withstand the test of time. She should be #1 along with Gladys Knight, Whitney Houston, and Tina Turner.

I don't have a clue who did this list!... But please do more research. Diana ross 140 not saying she should be #1 but really no wheres judy garland don't know if she made your list I couldn't go on so many artist you missed or put people like Madonna please a product of publisity anyways give some oldies some love peggy lee Sarah Vaughan ethel waters lena horn.. anyways thanks for the Rant!

Diana Ross is a good singer and Motown alumni. I remember Michael Jackson had a crush on her when he was a kid. He even made Dirty Diana in honor of Diana.

218 Pat Benatar Pat Benatar Patricia Mae Andrzejewski, known professionally by her stage name Pat Benatar, is an American singer, songwriter, and four time Grammy Award winner.

Her voice is simply majestic! She can make the heaviest music sound overly melodic. I don't know if she has soul but she has more passion in her voice than anyone! - cjvk3

One of the greatest singers of all time at the very least! She can hit the high and lows in her music perfectly.

Pat Benatar is one of the greatest female rock legends. Her music can just Hit Me with Your Best Shot.

Iggy Azalea better than her? NO WAY!

219 Rufus Wainwright Rufus Wainwright

I cannot believe Rufus Wainwright has not been considered on this list. He has one of the most distinctive and beautiful voices and his songs are absolute genius. Every single one of them and they cover any emotion or situation. My number 1 well and truly.

I find it despicable that Rufus Wainwright is placed this far down. I thought this list was for singers. As far as actual vocal talent, he surpasses the majority of artists out there today, and definitely deserves to be placed much higher on this list.

He is a great singer with an amazing voice for example him singing the polices song wrapped around your finger.

Love everything he sings...top 10
