Best Female Broadway Singers

The Top Ten

1 Lea Salonga Filipina singer and actress Lea Salonga has released nine studio albums, three live recordings and is involved in at least ten cast recordings.

I love the way she sing so clear and she is very talented and very busy person I know...

Her voice is so angelic and there is so much emotion in every song she sings.

No one can beat Lea’s crystal clear voice, so much passion and best technique.

Lea Salonga has an angel's voice and is perfect because she can not only sing but also add emotion to her Broadway character. Lea is above and beyond and has a very unique voice. Have you seen her in Miss Saigon, she sounded so beautiful and her work for Disney made me love her even more.

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

The fact that she's not on this list, let alone at #1, worries me. Barbra Streisand is the mother of broadway, and the greatest vocalist of Broadway. Every note is supported, resonance, and with a neutral larynx. Healthy vibrato, and stellar breath control that allows her to hold notes for over 20 seconds at a time. She deserves to be number 1, and the fact that she's not on this list is-in a way, extremely disrespectful. - anewman

I saw her in hello dolly and loved it!

21 Christy Altomare

Anastasia. The kindest, sweetest person you will ever meet. Her voice is amazing, I could listen to it all day - SassyEquine
