Best American Male Singers

Wonderful

The Top Ten

1 Adam Lambert Adam Lambert Adam 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.

Bruno Mars is immensely talented but he is definitely a "pop star" vocalist who has stellar talent. Best male vocalist is Adam Lambert aka Pop's Pavarotti. His training allows him to use his voice in outrageous ways. Holding notes for 16 seconds? I've only seen Pavarotti do that & Jussi Bjorling. Adam has a voice that you can feel in your body. Just incredible. What does Adam have over Michael Jackson is just strength of voice.

I just LOVE him and his powerful voice

21 Steve Perry Steve Perry Stephen Ray "Steve" Perry is an American singer, songwriter, and record producer. He is known as the lead singer of the rock band Journey during their most commercially successful periods from 1977 to 1987 and again from 1995 to 1998.

All I have to say is, this man can really sing.
Oh, and he hits amazingly high notes seemingly with ease, and every single note he sings is so beautiful I could cry. He is so incredibly far superior to other singers. I would also argue that he is better than probably most or all professional, meaning classically trained, singers. The reason is, the talent he has he choses to use for rock and pop music, but if he had been classically trained there would be almost no limit for him.

Steve Perry was the lead singer for the American band Journey from 1977 to 1996. He is an amazingly gifted singer, with a huge range and a beautiful voice.

No one comes close!
