Best Female Singers In Concert
The Top Ten
I used to laugh at stories of 19th century concert-goers who had to "take to the bed" because they were so overwrought. I no longer laugh -- not since one November night in 2004 when I was electrified by the beauty and magic of Sarah Brightman and her art. Her concerts are an initiation into an enchanted realm of beauty and wonder.
Her concerts are full of effects unlike I have ever seen! Her choice of costumes, songs, and such all reflect the overall theme of her tours and you cannot do anything but stare and have your jaw drop to the floor in awe and amazement!
I heard this voice from no more than 15 feet away without a microphone. This voice is unmatched in perhaps, recorded history, as Ms Brightman was able to hit full operatic notes, and tones, and immediately come down to sing in a pop necessary breathy tone. A very unique talent.
Though I have not seen her live in concert yet, the full videos of her live performances I have seen have put Sarah Brightman above all others! I want to see her live more than I could possibly express!
She sings wonderfully, purely, genteelly, with full emotion in her live performances. Her concerts at PBS Great Performances - Dream With Me In Concert and Music of the Movies - are unforgettable and had many listeners, The DWMIC raised record amounts of money for PBS stations. Not only common visitors are moved, her angelic voice brings feeling to been around soldiers. I wish her she preserves the great gift to her. But she amazingly and purely showed to us, she wish seriously to be a huge star of the classical crossover music and she already is the real star.
This young lady has it al... Mesmerizing vocals, charisma, stage presence and charm. Seeing her for the first time in concert is truly a life-changing experience.
Jackie Evancho has the most beautiful singing voice in recorded history. Not since Jenny Lind [the Swedish Nightingale] in the late 1800's has a singing voice had this rich tone and timbre. Broke Michael Jackson's record as youngest artist in history to have a Top 5 and Platinum album. Will be around for the next 50 years or so.
Her voice brings magic to anyone who hears it and charm the entire audiences
Ann Wilson was one of the best rock vocalists of all time. She's even better at singing in many concerts. I love her so much. I wish I met her.
Ann Wilson just keeps getting better and better every year! I saw her in July and she just blew my mind! In my opinion there is no better singer than Ann.
Ann Wilson is the most talented person I've ever seen. Especially live! She can sing, play guitar, and flute. An amazing songwriter and person.
I agree with all of the comments made about Ann Wilson. I've watched many of her live performances and they never cease to instill great emotion. She has a simplistic concert setting because it is her voice people go to experience.
Saw for the first time on HBO, overseas world tour... danced and sang for 90 minutes, only briefly stopping to change outfits. I will always give her her just props and prayers to her! That Concert on HBO was back in the 90's.
She revolutionized pop concertes! All of her performances are a unique piece of performance art: every song has a deep theme that is presented thru a combination of amazing live music, energetic-owe inspiring dancing, the latest in visual effects and fantastic videos. The production is out of this world.
Sure, this Lady is the best in concert for many years. Every Madonna's show is fantastic! Amazing Woman...
Yes her concerts are spectacular events however it would help if she could actually sing! Madonna is all smoke and mirrors.
She's really a concert performer... She can sing all genres... She's a good dancer too, a truly versatile performer I have heard ever. Whenever she performs on the center stage, she become something we never expected from her. She's truly a one of a kind performer/entertainer I have witnessed in my entire life.
, sold out concerts in so many jam packed venues..,
, idolized by many..,
, ms pops fernandez even said in one of her recent interviews that she could only foresee one person that can follow her footsteps..,
, and that is...,
, SARAH GERONIMO..,
, by the way..,Pops Fernandez is the concert queen here in the Philippines..,
total performer! she can sing in any genre and she can dance gracefully... the most successful young superstar in her generation here in philippines... very successful in all aspects because she is very talented...
I have seen all of sarah's concerts
here in the philippines and she is
really a total performer and the
quality of her voice is extra ordinary beautiful and the emotions
when she sings fantastic
The best female artist ever in my opinion, helping 500,000 kids worldwide going from Spanish to English and even singing for the President! Nothing screams success like buying your own private Island. Shakira donated 45 Million dollars to rebuild a destroyed school in Haiti.
Watch her live in Paris and Singapore F1, the complete performer... she must be top ten. You get belly dance, samba, flamengo, songs in French, Spanish, English, guitar, harmonica... men cry watching her on stage.. the ultimate pocket dynamite.
How can they put shakira in 5th she should be in first
She's so down to earth and raw and talented. Her voice is even better live than any other artist I've ever seen perform. She doesn't just take the spotlight she shares it with her band and her dancers.
Best female entertainer ever
Female singers don't come any better than Cher!
Best ever female solo singer in concert
What a singer & her concerts are FABULOUS!
Did you see her live? If yes you'd know what I mean
Her songs are amazing live! I mean, unlike other artists, she preformed at the halftime show with by her self without any other artists! Not only does she sing, she plays the piano and dances great! Her concerts are amazing!
Dance hard, Sing Harder... She is one of the female artist with best live vocal performance. You can check her Superbowl halftime show, FYI. Went to see her concert, The Born This Way Ball once and she sounds not like the studio but far better and fascinating. The way she uses her art to entertain the audience is really amazing like you suddenly fall into her world without knowing from start till the end of the show. Being in music industry for a decade but she's already a legend. From winning VMAs to an Oscars, that's not normal. Her winning speech at Oscars is really moving me and I cry every time I watch because it really touches me so hard... #PawsUp
Lady gaga is one of the very few artists out there who don't lip sync. She has an amazing beautiful voice that gives you a certain feeling. Plus when you go to her concerts she makes you feel free from yourself and free from all of your weaknesses. You also get to see her amazing performances and crazy outfits. Love you gaga. Paws up!
Her shows feel like catharsis. Everyone in the audience feels that mighty inspiring vibe of hers, when she sings and talks to her fans. It's almost a divine experience, I dare say; though I'm not some crazy fan of hers at all. And yes, she NEVER lip syncs.
Is it just me because I went to her Speak Now Tour and she was amazing. She sounds like the studio versions of her songs;n is just so amazing how fantastic she sounds. I love taylor Swift in concert and can not see why she is not up high on this list for top singer at a concert.
She is amazing in concert and sounds just like she does in the studio, but it is LIVE! She is so talented and amazing. Her song writing is quite brilliant and fantastic. How on Earth is she not near the top of this list, she is amazing in concert
Her voice is absolutely amazing in concert. Definitely deserves to be on the top. I've gone to her Speak Now, Red and 1989 World Tours and there is no doubt that she is incredibly talented, and has an amazing voice.
2% You gotta be kidding. Who's doing the math and counting the arena ticket sales. This is what you call a crossover megastar! Her concerts are half circus half Radio City Music Hall. Unique.
The tornados belted 5 octave using her chest!
amazing, most singers just stand there and sing, however when Whitney performs its out of this world the fans always comes first and she gives them the best time of her lives, even if she isn't feeling her best, Whitney we love you and good luck with your new album
UM EXCUSE ME? Whitney should be first on the list, I mean she did drugs sure, but it's about singing, not about drugs! I love love love "I will always love you" and I will always love you Whitney Houston.
Whitney had the most powerful female voice I ever heard. But more then once, I have read or heard about her somewhat cavalier approach to live performance.
Whitney never EVER sings a song the same way twice. She is 10 billions times better live than in the studio where she is perfect anyway.
Mariah is an Amazing Touring Artist, She interacts with her fans, She flaunts her Beautiful Voice, She gives everything she have.
I was at the taking chances tour in 2007 and I still think about that day and just get chills. We where there since the morning early and we even had a glimpse of her warm up, this was the most memorable moment of my entire life. Everyone just ran to get in and was so excited to see her and hear her. Her voice literally soared through the night air and we were stand, rocking and dancing the whole night, it was such an unexpected show. Definitely made a mark. I love her xxx
Celine Dion's Taking Chances Tour is the second highest earning tour by a solo artist of all time behind Madonna and the tenth in all. And you people place her 36th. Please, pay some more respect to this fine lady. She is a nice person and a nice singer. But is never cited on any top compilation lists. I just wonder why? Whoever agrees with me. Please vote for her. Cause she rarely appears in the Top Ten good lists and can be found in the list of overrated singers. Fix your brain, people. Pleasee.
Oh my word! Celine is such an entertainer! I went to her Taking Chances concert and we were up on our feet throughout the entire concert! She is an incredible singer, she's just beautiful, we had so much fun. Love you Celine
She has a voice like a beautiful melody! For me she is a perfect woman and mom! She is also have been my inspiration. She is the best female singer for me in concert for the whole time!
She can sing her face off, in multiple genres!
Pink is so good at live! She should be at least in top 20! I don't understand why artists such as Christina or Pink are lower than Britney Spears. At least THEY SING LIVE and have great voice!
Never has any other performers achieved what pink does in live concerts from costumes to acrobatics and most of all vocals, pinks vocals are always on point and in my opinion even better live, she actually sounds like on record just stretches her notes out and rocks it. Pink brings it every time
have you heard her? she sounds like her studio version of her songs. very raw, real and unedited.
She should seriously be number 1, I have been to her concert and it is like nothing you will ever see. She sings perfect while hanging upside down soaking wet spinning around. Pure perfection.
To everyone who says that Katy can't sing live she is perfectly fine live. Yes, during teenage dream and one of the boys she wasn't that good (besides ballads) live. That's because she didn't have enough experience yet. She honestly has a fantastic voice live, and she gets so much flack for making mistakes.
Best female singer in concert and Katy Perry do not belong in the same sentence. She is awful live. Like a lot of modern day singers and I use the term loosely she surrounds herself with dancers who distract the audience from the fact she cannot sing.
Her prismatic concert was amazing. best visual performance and production EVER
She is the BEST performer ever and should be close to number one
She is the best female singer in concert and should be the first.
People like Madonna, Britney Spears, Shakira, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato and Hayley Williams do not belong in this list, because this is about the best female singers in Concert and not the worst.
I've never seen anyone who can sing live like her, she sing with such emotion. I absolutely love her
I don't know about her.. I like her songs, but not so much her voice. :-( sorry Kelly.
Kelly amazing at concert wind blowing in her hair and she just sings her heart out
Beautiful musical voice. Perfect diction, effortless presentation, and good looker as well- the world is badly devided! PF
I'm proud of her.. I'm proud to be GEORGIAN! Ketie rules!
QUITE SURPRISED TO SEE KATIE IN HERE BUT HAPPY BECAUSE SHES AN UNDErrated BEAUTY
Few artists, past or present, are able to just walk up to the microphone, start to sing, and then you hear the 'oohs and awes' from the crowd. Bassey's body, arm, and hand movements are at one with her powerful voice and after all these years, she is still able to mesmerize the audience.
My favorite going back to the 70"s
