Best Singers of All Time
The Contenders: Page 15XW
Absolute perfection. Her pitching, her multi-harmonic tone, her ease of movement between notes, her transference of emotion... Just everything is flawless. She is able to glide effortlessly between subtle breath-like tones, beautiful high-end notes and rich and powerful operatic sounds. There is something about the quality of her voice that is intensely healing, that releases emotions. It's like pure spiritual energy. I've heard and played music with a lot of musicians and she has the best voice of anyone I've ever heard. She's stunning: the most amazing God given talent imaginable. For me, number 1 of all time and she's still a relative beginner!
I'm convinced that those who voted for example for Britney Spears to be the best singer ever, know absolutely nothing about singing. They've voted for those singers who are most famous and that doesn't tell anything about their actual singing skills. Somehow they've just been more lucky than others in becoming famous. It's not about how many albums you've recorded or how many records have been sold, it's about singing. Actual singing skill is a true talent and not everyone, including Britney Spears, has it even though they just happen to be famous. Not everyone is that lucky that they somehow get a chance to rise to popularity and fame. Like someone previously said, it's a shame that a singer like Leona Lewis had to resort to X Factor to get herself noticed. But she did have to, and I am surprised that she hasn't ranked higher on this list 'cause this woman really knows how to sing! You listen to her and you know what being a great, great singer really means!
Leona is a very special and talented singer who will go far. She so deserved to win the X Factor, although it is an absolute outrage that a girl as talented as Leona was forced to enter it in the first place.
She needs to be number 1, she has the most beautiful voice and her songs have meaning.V20 Comments
This is a man, that deserves the Title "number 1". He has the most unique Rock and Roll voice that is ever heard and been on this planet. Bruce springsteen is the best live artist, idol, singer; I could keep mention titles, but what can I say - HE IS THE BOSS and I can't see why Justin bieber and all disney jokes are in top 100 and he's putted on number 190. Give him at least a place in top 10 instead of all the pop singers that don't even deserve being on the list. - I'm disappointed... And to end my comment... ROCK & ROLL FOR LIFE!
best singer/song writer rver lived
If he not the peoples choice then he definitely has the vote from his peers, go on ask Waco, ask Sir Paul... Just look at who they got to duet with stevie wonder for we are the world. And I can just see how that came about. Q called up Bruce and asked him that they would be honoured if he would duet on the record and did he have anyone in mind and Bruce said in his band he sings with a stevie does that help? And Q said well hell we got a stevie and the rest is history.. No not MJ. Afterwarfds at the press thing Q said it was unfortuant that it had taken a crisis to work the colaberation but were never the less greatfull to Bruce and the legendary E Street band. That's earth stomping, record breaking...

She has a perfect voice. This is nuts. Think of all the songs and performances she did.
The closest to the perfect singer. Give this lady a song and she will sing it the way it is meant to be done. She has so much colors and emotions in her voice. She can do it all. Whether she being joyful in "Midnight Train to Georgia", reflective in "Best Thing", praying for help in "Don�t Want to Do Wrong", tender in "The Makings of You", funky in "On and On", sadness in "Neither One Of Us", loneliness in "Help Me Make It Through the Night", soulful in "Grandma�s Hands", fed-up in "I Don�t Want To Know" or just beautiful in "Just Take Me".
He has a beautiful voice, so deep, so full of emotions.
GACKT is amazing, he has the best voice I've ever heard!
His voice just moves your soul and your feel your emotions rush through you. It's not just the power that is in his voice but also you can feel his soul reaching you. There is just something about the way he tells a story through his words and his songs that makes it hard not to move with him, regardless of language barriers
Like him very much, he's voice is capturing! His songs really can make you cry.
His voice has so much feelings in it!V30 Comments
(way better than Britney Spears).
GABBA GABBA HEY!
Despite being an amazing guitarist, his voice is so soft and beautiful.
Why he is below Zayn? He should be number 2 with Freddie Mercury 1st (or at least top 10)! He rocks the world! Also an unbeatable guitarist, as far as I know.
Brain may! He has a very nice voice! Should be at least top 10!

A top country singer. Died at age of 29, in 1953. Wrote Lyrics to many of his songs having a limited formal education. Best songs... Your "Cheating Heart"... Cold Cold Heart.
Come on people! He has one of the most amazing voices of all time! Everybody wants to sing with him! He is one of the most talented people of the 21st century, he should be on a higher position on this list!
His voice is unbelievable, out of this world. Only a few in this world are able to imitate the voice he possesses. He is best known as the lead vocalist in the Canadian rock band Nickelback.
This is ridiculous! 154! Chad has one of the most amazing voices of all time, he should be in the top 5. By the way I am listening to him right now
Nickelback dude beats dexter holland...that's coolV7 Comments
I love Gwen Stefani's cool songs! I really enjoy listening to her voice. Her voice is so... Pretty. I love her song' Hollaback girl'. All of her songs are catchy in a really good way. I hope Gwen Stefani keeps making more albums!
WHAT!? Gwen should be in the top ten! How dare someone not vote for her. Shame on you. She is one of the most talented stars out there. She can jump from different music genres and still rock it! She was in a band, can actually sing live, a big influence on manu stars, awesome singer, can jump and run around on stage AND all that while, still be able to sing! The kids these days be listening to Nicki Minaj, and Ke$ha. Teach your kids some good music. Gwen is 46 and still making music. She's got the fountain of youth in her backyard! Listen to Don't Speak or Early Winter. Gwen Stefani should be in the top tens.
Gwen Stefani is a very talented singer who's been successful in the band No Doubt and also with her solo career. Charli XCX, a rising pop star has even had Gwen as a huge influence. Vote up Gwen Stefani she deserves it.
What you waiting for make her in the top 20 at leastV11 Comments
Kate Bush is by far the greatest singer of all time, she has the most fantastic voice, writes her own songs and music, has been the major inspiration for many of the new british talent in the last 30 years, has never been afraid to NOT conform to what the rest of the music industry dictates and she makes music because it is her passion and not because the media demands it
Many artists faced her songs and failed. She is from a different planet
Nothing to say really! Just spectacular.
No justification needed!V1 Comment
He is so talented I know a lot of people don't like him but he has a lot of dedicated fans, he rights a ton of his own songs and they come from his heart, he is a great dancer and guitar player to
A lot better singer than Justin beiber...
Rocking personality and heart touching music
Cody Simpson is a good singer. I just wish that girls today would listen and scream with excitement to his music.V10 Comments
You think he is 181? Down there. He is actually 302 now! - lizard302
Well, maybe the most beautiful voice on earth... Only at this rank because unknown by a lot of us...
Please, needs to be much higher than this. - okcnaline
He is the best singer of the world, of the history, of the space!
I want give you my love from Japan!
I wish he comes Japan again.
He has a great voice record, his work is not well known but is actually one of the best singers in the world
BoA stand for "Best of Asia" Ever since BoA has debuted in 2000 she has amazed Korean fans and oversea fans with her great talents. BoA was trained for 2 years before she became a singer. Again she's amazing and deserves to be on this list.
She is way better than boring Taylor Swift. Katy Perry, Pink, BoA, and Christina Aguilera rock. Taylor Swift is a boring singer with barely any talent and extremely overrated, BoA is talented and her songs are cooler and fun to listen to. She can speak many langauges, dance, and sing and is not as overrated. Energetic is a better song than Bad Blood.
