Willie Neal Johnson gave so much to the Gospel Music industry. Many have tried to mimic, but none could come close. He also believed in giving unselfishly.

She not only sang brilliantly but played guitar brilliantly as well.

126 Ivan Parker

Ivan is one of the greatest. He does not put on a show it is a reviival

127 Earnest Pugh

He has a five octave vocal range... That should say more than enough. He can hit some of the best high motes you will ever here. He also writes beautiful songs.

He is a great gospel singer, Rain down on us... Got to my spirit very deep.

128 Lauren Daigle

Very new, but if she continues like this, she'll be one of the greatest (Christian)singers of all time all round.

129 Kenny Hinson

Kenny Hinson was one of the greatest singers I've ever heard in any genre. He was also one of the most charismatic performers I've ever seen. Recordings do not do justice to his talent (although his recordings are great) - you had to see him in person to truly appreciate his gift. What an incredible talent gone too soon. We miss you Kenny!

Kenny Hinson had one of the best voices I've ever heard in any genre and he wasn't just a great singer, he was a great performer. One of the most talented singers I've ever heard.

Kenny Hinson was the best southern gospel singers to ever grace the stage. He sounded just like Merle Haggard. Loved his voice.

Grew up with there kids. This is no dought number one

130 John Elefante

Not just one of the best Gospel Singers but one of the Greatest Singers of all time up there with legends like Freddie Mercury and Elvis Presley.

John Elefante is incredible. The man loves the Lord with all his heart, soul and energy. Listen to No Ones Ever Died For Me Before!

This is a man that truly loves the Lord and it's a shame that he hasn't reached as many people as other artists on this list.

131 Tony Fontane

What's the matter with you people. Haven't you ever heard of Tony Fontane. Now he is the best gospel singer of all time.

I heard in the middle 1950's in Grand rapids and it brought me to Christ I never had heard such a voice, what happened to him?... I will never forget him.
He was singing and gave his testimony of Christ in his life.

132 Tarralyn Ramsey

I think that everybody have forgotten her. She's very great

133 Jacky Clark Chislom V 1 Comment
134 Vuyo Mokoena

Greatest African gospel singer of all times.

He was and still the soulhealer with his melodic voice to the world, eventhough he could no longer release song but his old songs will always release soul from the chains of evil

136 Nortreus Werley

He's a very great singer for the Lord

137 Walter Hawkins
138 DeLois Barrett Campbell

She always put herself in her songs what a voice truly one of the best!

139 Dorothy Norwood

My mom played Dorothy Norwood songs all the time. I have about 15 of her albums. She is know as the world's greatest gospel story teller. She sang with the Famous Caravan in the fifties. I've had the pleasure of attending her concerts, and she really know how to stir-up the congregation. Her signature songs are: Somebody Prayed For Me, Shake the Devil Off, Got to Be Rain in Your Life and the all time classic The Denied Mother.

She is still singing like she did. when she first started love her voice!

I love listening to Mrs. Dorothy Norwood. When Mrs. Norwood sings it comes with a testimony and it lifts your spirit. She is a great inspirational singer and l love her dearly.

140 Brian Free

Truly one of the best tenors I've ever heard. He sings the song "For God So Loved" and "Say Amen" with such conviction that it brings tears to my eyes. He has a passion for the lost and has a great testimony.

Brian Free, formerly of Gold City, but now of Brian Free and Assurance, is likely the best gospel tenor singer ever.
