Best Female Broadway Singers


The Top Ten

1 Lea Salonga Lea Salonga

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.

Her voice in angelic and very musical.

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 absolutely stunning as Eliza. Her voice is comparable to that of an angel's, it's amazing. - Absolite

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.

18 Laura Osnes

LAURA I LOVE YOU! - SassyEquine

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

19 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!

20 Christy Altomare

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

21 Barrett Wilbert Weed

She slays all day.

22 Lea Michele Lea Michele Lea Michele Sarfati is an American actress, singer and author. She began her career as a child actress on Broadway, appearing in productions of Les Misérables, Ragtime, Fiddler on the Roof, and Spring Awakening.

Love this singer/actress..!

This saint portrayed an amazing woman, Angelica Schuyler, and even though she's 46, she can hit that high note and still make me cry!

26 Marin Mazzie
27 Kelli O'Hara
28 Stephanie J. Block
29 Kara Lindsay
