Best Female Belters

The Top Ten

1 Whitney Houston Whitney Houston Whitney Elizabeth Houston (August 9, 1963 – February 11, 2012) was an American singer, actress, producer, and model. In 2009, Guinness World Records cited her as the most awarded female act of all time. Houston is one of pop music's best-selling music artists of all-time, with an estimated 170–200 more.

Her voice is a gift from god, to be forever cherished and remembered for its dazzling grace. She was as iconic of a person as a she was a singer. She was beautiful, smart and intelligent. I will always love her!

I love her! She's been my idol forever


She's number #1 FOREVER

2 Barbra Streisand Barbra Streisand Barbara Joan Streisand, known professionally as Barbra Streisand, is an American singer, songwriter, actress, and filmmaker.

I was really impressed by the first time to listen to "Somewhere". Her voice technique is amazing, approximately perfect, her rhythm is crystal clear, pure and angelic. Even though, it is not dramatic and resonance like Whitney's and she can't use whistle like Mariah Carey, her musical technique is the best. Every note is controlled perfectly. Her belting is long, powerful and somewhat resonance, it's not annoying like Christina (she is good but always slaying, growling her voice and does not have a proper technique). If you like listening belting songs, why don't try to listen to the endings of two these songs: "Somewhere" and "A piece of sky".

She is the best. One of the most popular belting songs of all time is "Don't Rain On My Parade" from Funny Girl BY BARBRA STREISAND She is a legend and will always be one of my biggest inspirations in my performances. I doubt she reads these but-"Thank you, Barbra. Thank you for being the legend you are and inspiring so many people, especially me. Your work in all performances, not just belting, is truly incredible. I feel blessed to have the natural belting voice I have and I hope to inspire others one day. Thank you. From all of us who love you and who have been inspired by you."

Listen to her songs, for crying out loud! Don't Rain On My Parade is one of the most popular belting sings of all time and it's HER song. SHE is amazing. She definitely deserves to be #1 even though Whitney is good. Barbra is my inspiration and I am a mezzo belter in my theater organization. And I can belt like nobody's business. Thank you Barbra for inspiring me. You all need to witness her amazing talent.

3 Celine Dion Celine Dion

My heart will go on for the best female belter. Just listen to one of her songs. You'll immediately understand. She rocks! Love you, Celine!

Very talented and beautiful lady. Even though I believe she is not as good as some of the others lower on this list, I still love her beautiful rich tone and "Mary Poppins-esque" crystal clear voice.

She's really my idol since I was a child

9 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.

Regine must be number 1. She is the best and she is the Asia's Songbird, no other artist in this generation can reach her success and milestones. She is reigning for 26 years in Philippine music industry and she is named as queen of Original Pinoy Music.

The ASIA'S SONGBIRD and the only FILIPINO singer I know who could belt and sustain a B5 note (The note B on the fifth octave of the piano). No one else can do that except Regine... Therefore, she's #1

Regime is very successful but putting that aside, she is the best belter you could imagine... Watch her on YouTube and discover it yourself. No kidding.

Regine must be on top why? because of her extreamly, high, and soulful redention of every song that she sung. and one of the greatest and widest vocal belters of all time...and for me she is the best vocal singer in the world.(period) I LOVE YOU "ASIA'S SONGBIRD"...

10 So Hyang

No sense on even commenting. Most of you have never heard of her. Google her and see for yourself. Angelic, masterful, powerful, humble and under appreciated.

Bruh. Her range is insane. She can support a mixed belt up to C#6. Whitney is pretty much the agreed-upon best singer of all time (and rightly so), but So Hyang has the best belting ability of anyone I've ever seen. She's a Korean folk singer. Check her out on YouTube.

Truly amazing in ever sense of the word. Inside and out.

The Contenders

11 Christina Aguilera Christina Aguilera Christina María Aguilera is an American singer, songwriter, and record producer, best known for songs such as "Beautiful", "Genie In A Bottle", "Fighter", "Hurt", "Dirrty", "Your Body", "Lady Marmalade", "Reflection", "I Turn To You", "Come On Over Baby (All I Want Is You)" "What A Girl Wants" and more.

She ain't no belter

Who! I love her#!

12 Idina Menzel Idina Menzel

I love Idina so much! She is the best. Even though Let It Go is getting old... It is still a beautiful powerful belting song. She IS Elphaba and Elphaba is one of the biggest belting roles of all time! She can belt like nobody's business. She has a stunning voice that gives you goosebumps just listening to it. (I'm not just a crazed fan either-I myself am a Musical Theater actress and a mezzo-soprano belter. I know what I'm talking about. She is fantastic.)

#13? WHAT? She deserves to be at least top five. She is my inspiration.

No words to describe how much I love Idina and her voice.

Girl she swag

14 Chaka Khan Chaka Khan Chaka Khan is an American singer-songwriter whose career has spanned four decades, beginning in the 1970s as the frontwoman and focal point of the funk band Rufus.

Chaka khan is a serious female singer. One of the best singers of this time. She should be up there on the list. So as Whitney Houston.

15 Charice Charice Charmaine Clarice Relucio Pempengco, popularly known by the mononym Charice, is a Filipina singer who rose to popularity through YouTube.

2008-2011 Charice slays my entire existence. She didn't have the range of Regine or the mastery of head voice like Whitney, but her belts were the best. Extremely powerful and resonant and with unique tone. I wish she had been more popular because I believe she was one of the best singers to grace the 21st century.

Charice is amazing and should be way higher on this list! She can sing super high notes so effortlessly. She can nail all the Whitney Houston and Celine Dion songs. If you've heard her sing "All By Myself", you'd know she's awesome.

-All By Myself
-One Moment in Time
-Unbreak My Heart

Charice wins. that's all there is to it. She has such a powerful voice. Maybe not crazy belting range like Sohyang (i've heard charice belt up to A5) or mastery over head voice like Whitney, but since we're just talking belting, Charice wins.

16 Jennifer Hudson Jennifer Hudson Jennifer Kate Hudson is an American singer, actress and spokesperson. She rose to fame in 2004 as a finalist on the third season of American Idol, coming in seventh place.

Greatest voice of our time! Oscar + Grammy winner

17 Stephanie Mills
18 Agnes Monica
19 Kyla

Well, she's really the best for me.. She can do both the lowest note and even one of the highest notes.. She is simply amazing.. Humble pa.. I just so love her..
