39 Sade Sade Helen Folasade Adu, known professionally as Sade Adu or simply Sade, is an English singer-songwriter, composer, arranger, and record producer.
40 Judy Garland Judy Garland Judy Garland, born Frances Ethel Gumm (June 10, 1922 – June 22, 1969) was an American singer, actress, and vaudevillian. The American Film Institute named her 8th greatest female star of classic American cinema. She's also the mother of actress and singer Liza Minnelli.

For me, Judy will always rank tops. A great singer cannot be judged by their technical abilities alone, but by the way they can interpetrete that song and how they can impact the listener. Garland's emotion flowed so effortlessly when she sang because she lived the lyrics of the songs, the songs she sang told the stories of her life.
And, to quote - "When she sang, God spoke. "
