Best Female Broadway Singers


The Top Ten

1 Lea Salonga

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.

She was the best diva I could ever know...she must be at the top of the list.

Best female voice I ever heard.

Technically the best. Bernadette, Ruthie, and Judy Kuhn- also fabulous.

2 Elaine Paige
3 Idina Menzel Idina Menzel

She is the best!

15 Sarah Brightman Sarah Brightman
16 Phillipa Soo

She has an angel's voice, it's just beautiful and sounds amazing and she is my all time favorite actress. She is incredible at acting as well.

17 Laura Osnes

She is amazing in everything she is in! She also seems really nice in person.

18 Barbra Streisand 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!
