Best British Female Singers

The Top Ten

1 Leona Lewis Leona Lewis Leona Louise Lewis is a British singer, songwriter and animal welfare campaigner. She was born and raised in the London Borough of Islington, London, England where she attended the BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology.

A Voice that is unparalleled, Leona Lewis proves that talent is the only thing needed to be successful. Great songs and great lyrics for a phenomenal voice. Leona is all about music, and that is why she is so sensational!

Leona Lewis has an amazing voice and deserves more fame for this. She deserves many more hits then she does. Untalented people roam the charts and now it's Leona's turn.

Lewis' music is known for its heartfelt lyrics and beautiful melodies. In combination with her stunning voice and incredible vocal range she becomes a force to be reckoned with.

Probably the most technically capable vocalist of modern times, with the ability to sing just about anything, from pop to classical with a vocal tone that conveys heartache brilliantly. If her voice could be described in two words they would be 'sweet sadness'.

2 Adele Adele Adele Laurie Blue Adkins is an English singer and songwriter. Graduating from the BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology in 2006, Adele was given a recording contract by XL Recordings after a friend posted her demo on Myspace the same year. She is best known with her international hit singles ...read more.

People like Adele come once in a few generations. They become a living poem, a moving masterpiece. Comparing just becomes silly.

God she is the best singer ever. Her songs like 'Someone Like You', 'Skyfall', 'Rolling In The Deep' and 'Set Rain To Fire'(rather the whole album - '21') are so so so awesome. I just simply LOVE her strong, mature and deep voice. But I am missing her a lot nowadays! She is so inspiring. Can you all believe she is so good and she is just 26 years old!

She is the crossover singer in the history of female singers in the world. 21 is still topping across various charts. Can you believe it?

No need to talk.
Adele is the best female British singer.
Her voice and songs are amazing.
She doesn't pretend anyone else.
She is who she is, she does what she does.
Well done Adele.
We love you very much.

She is a great Singer
And her voice directly touch my heart

4 Jessie J Jessie J Jessica Ellen Cornish, better known by her stage name Jessie J, is an English singer and songwriter. Born and raised in London, she began her career on stage, aged 11, with a role in the West End musical Whistle Down the Wind.

Jessie J never fails when she sings, and she cannot only sing, but she can also beatbox and play with her voice in so many other ways. You can feel her mood when she sings. You can feel her emotions, and it is very few singers, where you can hear that! Jessie J is without a doubt the best british female singer :-)

I first heard of Jessie j when she released her controversial single Do It Like A Dude I wasn't sure of her at that point I just considered an ordinary typical pop singer and then one I listened to her acoustic version of Nobody's Perfect and I wanted to shatter into tears, emotional track and artist she should be at the top

Ask another singer to do one of her songs and here the difference they can't do it. Ok maybe the vocal gymnastics are overdone but this girl is a major talent. When she hosted the MTV Europe show before she became huge she sang lots of covers and put every other artist on the bill to shame. Only leona Lewis shines brighter

Best singer in this world

5 Kate Bush Kate Bush

Kate was always the best by far, pure artistry, talent, theatrical expression, genius, amazing singer, amazing song writer, amazing musician, amazing dancer, amazing choreographer, also a producer. She was so original there never was anyone like that ever... she's the pioneer before the rest of them! And finally - she was real, not plastic, she wasn't in it for money fame glamour but only ever did it for love of art. I wouldn't compare the rest on this list to Kate Bush. Nope.

I'm sorry but Kate should be in the top 5 at least. Anyone with any ounce of musicality in their bones must be able to acknowledge what an utter genius this women is. Unless they have never listened to more than 30 seconds of her work, which sadly is most likely to be the reason why she is positioned outside the top 10. Kate after all, is completely unique and out on her own.
There have been many great talented female singer/songwriters through the generations and we all have our favourites of course, and Kate is not everyone's 'cup of tea' I realise but if this poll is to be taken seriously then any subjective appreciative music lover would always vote for Kate before anyone else in my opinion.

My favourite witch of Pop! Yes, she is a good witch for she is so otherworldly. Bjork must be related to her. Hugely important singer/ songwriter. Perhaps one of Britain's most important female solo acts. Hugely creative. Weird and wonderful like no other. Extremely romantic and earth-bound. She is the Eve of Music. Nobody can write and tell a story through song like Kate Bush. Nobody.

One of the most important artists of the last 30 years.
When most of those above her are long forgotten, she and her work will be remembered.

6 Amy Winehouse Amy Winehouse Amy Jade Winehouse was an English singer and songwriter known for her deep expressive contralto vocals and her eclectic mix of musical genres, including soul, rhythm and blues, and jazz. She is also a well-known member of the 27 Club, as she overdosed on alcohol at age 27.

Britain has been responsible for some of the greatest vocal talents the world has ever seen, and Amy is, without a shadow of a doubt, the most gifted female. Her voice was absolutely extraordinary, and she could translate an emotion to an audience in a fashion that was practically unparalleled. Really, her voice was an instrument that could take you places. Not to mention, she was an incredibly gifted songwriter. The lyrics to Love is a Losing Game and Wake Up Alone are just stunning, and her renditions of classic Jazz standards are beautiful. Moreover, there is something commendable about her devotion to being herself in an industry that endeavors for individuals to conform. She truly epitomizes the word genius, and she made an everlasting impact on my life.

If we speak about really great voice, this girl should be # 1. Besides, she sang not because she wanted to be famous singer, like others did. She simply couldn't live without singing. That's why she IS famous now.

If it hadn't been for Amy Winehouse this list would have been almost empty. She opened up for many other female artist plus she gave the world a lot with her talent. She is amazing and she will always be remembered. Her voice is better than most artists that exist. We love Amy Winehouse and she definitely should be number one on this list.

This girl was the real deal

7 Shirley Bassey Shirley Bassey

If some younger music lovers could have seen her live they would understand what all the fuss is about, no dancers or even backing singers, just that voice and a huge orchestra

No other entertainer in the world has been a world-class performer for more than 50 years. For that, in addition to maintaining the the voice, Bassey has NO peer. She has also sold more records than anyone else on this list and her Oscars performance in 2013 basically showed the world, and Adele, how it's done. An indisputable number 1

The others are good but she really really is world class my mum and dad really agreed about anything but the both said that Shirley was the best and I agree

Have seen Dame Shirley a number of times in concert, wow just an amazing powerhouse of song - the very best ever!

8 Annie Lennox Annie Lennox

There aren't words expressive enough for this woman's internal archives of creativity and talent. From her experimental and shocking debut and throughout her constant chameleon-like, daring career, her amazing ability to entertain and amuse as well as eloquently make a poingnent statement just enhances and embraces the flawless jewel that is her voice.

80ies Fashion Icon. Feminist (for lack of better word). Philanthropist and freedom fighter. In fact she is the British Madonna. Piercing and powerful voice, yet gentle and elegant like a crystal. She stirs emotions like few others. Talented singer/ songwriter. Massively important for music.

Simply the best by a mile; what a fantastic and unique voice with depth, range that varies from angelic to almost rock at times. An icon and an inspiration to any female singer.

Took a couple of years to realise how good she was! I'm one stubborn sod that refused to go with the masses in what was popular, so missed out on some real talent when they appeared on the scene.
A rich powerful voice, low to high notes make her worth top 5.

9 Florence Welch Florence Welch Florence Leontine Mary Welch is an English musician, singer, and songwriter. She is best known as the lead vocalist of the indie rock band Florence + the Machine.

No sound can match hers Florence is one of the most talented singers of all time even Adele doesn't have a voice like hers because her voice is the voice of an angle

There may be several incredible women on this list, but none can match the artistry that Florence Welch has.

Listen to Calvin Harris' version of Spectrum and then tell me Florence Welch isn't the best on this list. Adele is a very close second though

She is great looking and most of all a talented musician

1992: Love Deluxe
2000: Lovers Rock
2010: Soldier of Love

She has stood the test of time and her shows still outsell most people on the list in the US. She has also modeled the best behavior to celebrity by keeping as private as possible, creating mystique.

She is a legend and a goddess...even in hiding...her albums top these youngsters...too much lavve ❤ Sade Adu

So beautiful songs that makes you cry, but at the same time makes you smile

Birdy really gets to your heart. Love her and do not ordinarily love female singers. I hope I get to listen to her touching and gorgeous vocals forever.

She is so talented and her voice is so flawless at such a young age.. Truly inspiring!

The best because she has a sensitivity and feeling that are rare in pop music.

This should be number 1, Marina has an amazing voice and meaningful lyrics, She has a message and she's delivering it successfully so far, Listen to her and you won't regret it.

How she isn't number one is mind boggling. Absolutely amazing lyrics, great sound, and more important than the other two, she has a phenomenal voice.

Marina is my favourite singer! I think she should be much higher on this list! Her songs are absolutely brilliant in my opinion, and she has a really nice voice as well!

She has amazing music

17 Alison Goldfrapp

"Breathy", "sultry", "ethereal", "startling" all have been said about her voice. Listen to "Pilots" and decide for yourself. By the way, the opening tune to the song is also her voice.

18 Alexandra Burke

Alexandra Burke is the best UK female singer of recent times. Although Leona can sing higher notes Alexandra has the richer voice and is better than Leona. Singing high notes does not make you a better singer.

Alex is the best British singer I have ever heard, bar none...and she can hit high notes. She does hit high notes. More important, her personality is so sweet and humble. No offense to all the other ladies, but Alex's voice and performances really move me. What a lovely, talented, and gracious performer. This list needs revised!

Alexandra Burke is one of the best, the way she hit those notes on Hallelujah

Every song is her best

19 Paloma Faith Paloma Faith

I love Paloma Faith because she dares to be different and when she wants, she is unique. She writes her own stuff and should eventually make it big in America. I love her honesty as a person and as an artist.

Simply the queen! Such a diverse spectrum of beautiful music, Paloma leaves everyone else for dead. She has class while also managing to be different. She is an inspiration. Great live also!

She's the Greatest! Full of soul! Her performances command your attention, she's awesome! We need more of her in America!

Amazing.. love her

21 Cheryl Cole Cheryl Cole Cheryl Ann Fernandez-Versini is an English singer, dancer, and television personality. She rose to fame in late 2002 as a member of girl group Girls Aloud on ITV's Popstars: The Rivals, and stayed with the group until they split up in 2013.

Cheryl is amazing! She's an outstanding performer, her music is so lifting and empowering. Not to mention her beauty, personality and hits with Girls Aloud! #1

I she has been lucky with her success due to a lot of publicity from the X-Factor. She ain't really released any classic songs that will be remembered for years. It's crazy to think she has 5 #1 singles for such a plain-Jane.

Cheryl is really a total performer specially on stage! Plus factor is her sweet personality made her to the top! Like her so much! - Marsha from the Philippines

She should be number 1 because she is the only female singer ever to have 5 UK number 1s and has some of the most catchy songs I ever heard. She is a house hold name in u.k./ireland but she never released her music in the us witch is a shame

22 Sophie Ellis-Bextor

Just by exploring all the kind of music she sings. Since trance going by pop music until indie gender. Her personality, her style of voice so unique. Her role as mother, wife and artist make of her an admirable person. Never in the eye of the show and scandals. Nothing vulgar. All a lady. Most of her lyrics do not say vulgarity like those of the most popular singers. What a pity that she is not recognized as it should in her own country, and is more acclaimed in Russia and Latin America. Mexico loves her! - oscarsam

Kylie may be the "British Princess of Pop" (despite being Aussie, really) but Sophie is the drama peak-inducing, high energy, new Electro Dance Pop Diva par excellence. Perhaps the most important Dance-Pop sensation of the new millennium for Britain. Addictive.

For me is the more beautiful singer and anyway she can to be underrated singer, your music is pure class and don't need being a wore for having famous

She is so underrated disco princess

Dido is just stunning. These emotions, her passion in songwriting. She was accompanying me through my adolescence and empowered me very often.

I love dido song like my fries and chicken

25 Bonnie Tyler Bonnie Tyler Bonnie Tyler is a Welsh singer. She is known for her distinctive husky voice, resulting from an operation to remove vocal nodules in the mid-1970s.

Known for her super special husky voice, with mega hits like total eclipse of the heart, holding out for a hero, it's a heartache and many many many more..., she is a legend. Just look at her hits on YouTube, every song gives you that special wow feeling, you know what I mean!

Because of the amazing husky voice and the passion she puts in every song, because she's been in the business for 40 years and never gets tired of touring, because of her fantastic hits and success all over Europe and worldwide.

Great honest performer who can really deliver.

First woman to ever chart at n°1 in UK and US simultaneously! one of the most popular UK performer in the world!

27 Alison Moyet Alison Moyet Geneviève Alison Jane Moyet is an English singer, songwriter and performer noted for her bluesy contralto voice.

Along with Cindy Lauper and Madonna, Alison Moyet was one of my favorite singers in the 80's (remember her being number 1 in Top of the Pops) and one of the most talented and complete singers I ever knew... Probably not too many young people know her, that's why she is only no 41...

Superior live vocalist, can sing any genre and give it pure quality

Alison, I think should be in the top 10. She has a richness in her voice

True talent

Very impressed with her voice... Someone said it was Adele, but I heard something in her voice that was NOT Adele... Love to hear more from her!

Love the duskiness of her voice, the rich character of it. She has a quality that is more woman than girl, like other deliciously great singers such as Adele and Amy Winehouse.

Like her because nothing to do with Adele! Simply unique! Great singer!

Beautiful and unique voice

Her music is just so beautiful. She has a gorgeous voice and is very underrated. 'English Rain' and 'Light Up the Dark' are both brilliant.

Beautiful, sweet enchanting voice that all should hear.

Better than cheryl by far.

Hauntingly beautiful voice.

How to compare with lesser lights.

Better than all the rest

33 Joss Stone Joss Stone Joscelyn Eve Stoker, better known by her stage name Joss Stone, is a British singer, songwriter and actress.

Joss is the best white female soul singer in the world. Not one person named herein has a voice even close to hers. Joss has given up her popularity for artistic freedom. She is the only world class singer who is performing on her own, without the corporate music worlds publicity and backing. Joss is boss, literally. Name another singer who can say the same.

The only singer today that comes close is Adele, both of these women were born to perform music, they are simply the Whitney, and Mariah of a new generation.

Awesome concert, very personal. She connect with her audience, love her music

Great sound choice of music

34 Dusty Springfield Dusty Springfield Mary Isobel Catherine Bernadette O'Brien, known professionally as Dusty Springfield, was an English pop singer and record producer whose career extended from the late 1950s to the 1990s.

Dusty Springfield was the a Game Changer in British Pop Music - Leading the Way for other Female pop Stars. Elton John called her " BRITAIN'S BEST VOCALIST ". Ballads, Soul, Pop - She had Hits in America, Australia, Canada, U.K. Germany - Germany Voted her " Best Female Singer in Germany 1973 ".

Amazing Voice, Husky, powerful, Her Range & Sensuality came over in Waves when you heard her Sing. You heard the first couple of Notes & you just knew it was Dusty. James Bond & other Movie Backing Songs - Listen to her with the " PET SHOP BOYS " Also her " REPUTATION CD ". She should be in the " TOP TEN " British Singers of all Time - Listen to Her Music - Simply Stunning!.

This should not be a Generational Selection but a MUSIC Selection & DUSTY IS THE BEST!

Dusty Springfield at 34?! She should be in top 10! She was a fantastic vocalist and had lots of amazing songs. 'Son Of A Preacher Man', 'You Don't Have To Say You Love Me', 'I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself', and 'I Only Want To Be With You' are the best though! I'm only 13 but love her voice and music. RIP.

One of the best female vocalists of all time and am surprised she is not higher on this list. Her range and different styles of singing amaze me still. And she could sing a ballad like no other. Thank you for your music Dusty!

If you ask any real singers of world of music they will tell you that Dusty Springfield was one of the greats This lady could sing anything Pop, Soul, Country, Folk, Jazz, Blues, Rock there is no female singer around who can match Miss Springfield

I admire many of the other singers on this list, but Sarah Brightman is undoubtedly a better, more highly trained and more versatile singer than any of them.

Anyone who's listened to her music will realise why she alone deserves to top this list.

Her voice varies from smooth soft tones to the ultra highs of the scale. Truly a voice of an angel. At least in the top five!

Simply. She is the best.

The most beautiful voice I have ever heard.

Absolute all - time great! God wanted her for himself - who could blame him. Think of all the wonderful music we've missed out on since her premature death. So missed (understatement! )

40 Geri Halliwell Geri Halliwell

Only British Female Solo Artist to have 4 consecutive #1 singles (Mi Chico Latino, Lift Me Up, Bag It Up, It's Raining Men)...12-13 million record sales as a solo artist, plus 75 million as a Spice Girl... Nearly 90 million world wide record sales!

She was definitely the best spice girl. She had many awesome songs. Don't you like It's Raining Men, Look at Me, Mi Chico Latino, Walkaway or Calling? - Magnolia

Geri Halliwell had 3 consecutive number #1 singles (Mi Chico Latino, Lift me up, Bag it up) on her first album, as well her debut sing 'Look at me' which peaked at #2 in the charts.

This was a major achievement, a rare success! Then she broke another record by achieving her fourth consecutive #1 single with 'It's raining men' on her second album, becoming the only British female singer to ever achieve this, four consecutive number #1 singles, Girl Power!

Beautiful music great voice.

I like her lyrics, and her accent

The best female singer out of spice girls and she writes her own songs where most singers don't

Amy's a true talent since a tender age of twelve.

Lovely ginger hair, good looking and a beautiful voice.

Six albums in six consecutive years, all of them best-selling in her native Sweden and now she's an actress in a feature film called "My Skinny Sister".

Just wondering, if this girls family hadn't moved back to Sweden what place would she have been at=
(Her father is British maybe that counts...)

There are LOTS of clips on YouTube, she has been a professional artist in Sweden for ten years now.

Interesting voice, can actually hear lyrics, great ad-libs

The girl can sing ( better than most) this talent will be remembered far beyond pop culture.

I love her heart and soul jazz singer

46 Ella Henderson

She is a breath of fresh air, and has a very mature and strong voice for someone her age. Even-though she only placed 6th on the X-factor she got a record deal and took a year to write and produce the kind of music she wanted to make and boy was it worth it. Ella possess a strong voice and can even reach the whistle register. I love her and she has been compared to the amazing Adele even-though her they sound a little different but nevertheless< I still adore and can't wait to have my hands on her second studio album.

A voice stronger than Adele with a personality that will make you think you've known her for years as well as being able to write songs herself that can make anyone cry

Her glow,ghost, mirror man is awesome

47 Alma Cogan

Died too young...

48 Rebecca Ferguson Rebecca Ferguson

This lady is fantastic and is a brilliant singer.

More than just X-factor!

Underrated. Would do better in singles charts with more commercial songs. Still lacks a little stage presence.stunning voice and looks.

Top 5 for me. Go and listen to her. One of Britain's most accomplished singer/song writers (M or F). A great musical talent, live or studio, but sometimes you just need to be in a manufactured industry group to be considered "great".
