Best Latin Female Singers


The Top Ten

1 Selena Quintanilla-Perez Selena Quintanilla-Perez Selena Quintanilla-Pérez was an American singer, songwriter, spokesperson, actress, and fashion designer.

Selena Quintanilla-Perez, when you hear that name you think of talent, grace, charm, beauty, and one of the best female singers, she could sing it all, she is and inspirtation to us and to a new generation. There is no other person like Selena!

When you think of Selena, you automatically think of someone who was not only one of the biggest inspirations in the world of Latin Music, but also one of the greatest female artists of all time, possessing the potential to be one of the biggest names in music. The shame is, that her life was ended far too soon, and her true potential was not realized. But, even after 18 years since she's been gone, her name is still known in countries all over the world, and continues to be an inspiration to Mexican-American artists and the younger generation who are still just now learning of her inspiring story. Selena was and always will be, the Queen of Tejano.

Such an amazing person. Gifted performer, fantastic singer/songwriter, had a killer body, knew fashion, knew how to act, and was such a down to earth person and loved her fans so much. What she did for her fans and even just for anyone was so amazing and I have yet to ser another artist show such a display of affection for each and every one of their fans that she did. May she rest in peace as she deserves to. She will always be my #1. Love you Sel

I. Love you forever...

3 Jennifer Lopez Jennifer Lopez Jennifer Lynn Lopez, also known as J. Lo, is an American singer, actress, dancer, fashion designer, author and producer.

She is to most beautiful person I have ever seen beautiful is just a word Jennifer gives a meaning to it her voice is not strong is is very sweet she is beyond awesome love her so so much! She can sing she can dance she can act what can't she do she's a mom and she is the highest paid Latin actress she is the queen of scents!

She is one of the most talented artists in the world! She acts, she sings and she dance so so wonderfully! I LOVE HER!

Jennifer Lopez can't even sing a single song without it making me vomit. She should really stick to acting not singing. Because really she can't sing at all. Her songs make no sense and there horrible. Her songs have no feeling or effort in them. She should sing with her real voice not lip sync.

She is a brave Mexican singer

4 Gloria Estefan Gloria Estefan

Gloria is not just a stunning beauty who happens to sing, Gloria is the most talented singer and performer in the whole world. Her voice and also her writing talent are a treasure to us all. Yes, the world of latin singers is a rich one with many talented vocalists out there but I feel that Gloria should certainly be at the very least in the top two. I understand Selena's place at number one such is the power and range of her voice but Gloria is and always will be for me the number one artist (not just Latin artist) in the world. The longevity of her career and the consistency of her performances is testimony to her continuing talent. Gloria Estefan is the most beautiful, lovely singer in the entire world - I love her.

Gloria has been a great artist over several years, singing in three languages Spanish, Portuguese and English, catering for several audiences. Renowned for her singing of disco hits and pop, traditional Cuban and Latin music, her creamy, radiant voice is as well suited to ballads as to disco and rock. Although today her singing is not flawless, the very evenness of her tonality and wide register creates an authentic sound, human and unaffected. It would be easy to concentrate only on her technical attributes but the energy of her performance, her enthusiasm and pleasing personality adds much to the overall experience of listening to Gloria Estefan. In addition, her physical attractive qualities, both in physique and facial beauty enhances the whole experience of being a Gloria Estefan fan.

Great singer, lovely person, intelligent and sexy. Even now in her fifties she shines as singer and looker. A great role model, Gloria has blended romantic songs with dance, a sexy act with a friendly persona. Unlike other female singers of her generation she has had a successful pop career whilst holding on to and promoting family values. Although I completely disagree with her political position I admire her for presenting her views consistently throughout her career in both song and activities. Gloria is one helluva woman and a role model for us all.

Brilliant singer and songwriter. Her marriage to Emilio is a testimony to her family values. Great to see her daughter marking out her own career but there is only one Gloria!

9 Celia Cruz

She has such an amazingly soulful and sultry voice, its surprising she isn't first on this list.

She is low on the list because the others are standing on her shoulders

To not see this women listed at the top totally makes this list a joke. How can you have Jennifer Lopez, Shakira and two other unknowns like Jenny Pena and Shelley w/e her name is and NOT CELIA CRUZ?

I so agree with the other post, This trailblazing woman should of been 1st. At the very top! She laid the ground work for every single Latina singer that came after her. And she is listed at 9? terrible.

10 Shelly Lares

It's true that she doesn't get that recognition she obviously deserves. But hey! At least she got recognized on here, and even on that, along with one of her best friend's, Selena! I've said it once and will continue to say it, Shelly is the last of the Selena era top female artists that has kept it more "Tejano" and has stayed within her music style range no matter how our style and generation of music has changed. She doesn't need to go out and try to collaborate w/successful Mexican groups to look for a possible hit, she doesn't need to change her music style much or even at all. She stays w/her feet well planted and keeps it as Tejano as she can deliver it to us. And look, she's living proof that it can be done no matter of time changes, etc. She just keeps on doing what she loves, is living comfortably, has a beautiful, strong, loving family by her side, and still delivering great music to all of us SHELLIANS. We love you Shelly! Keep on keeping it real! Congratulations by the ...more

Its amazing to hear such a GIGANTIC voice come out of such a tiny person! Besides being such a talented singer, she's such humble, wonderful person.

Shelly is an awesome singer. Hardworking lady that always thinks of her fans!

Shelly is an amazing entertainer! What you see is what you get, Love that about her!

13 India

India is a powerhouse when it comes to her voice! Second to none, she has proved that her range along with the emotion behind each and every word is not to be reckoned with. She not only has shown that she can master the salsa genre, but she is currently working on a CD of ballads which is being produced by none other than the Mexican super star Juan Gabriel. She will be around for a long time and I can only imagine the success that she will be walking into with her great personality and her versatility for music. India, you are number 1 in my book!

She had the most powerful voice and an incredible range

India is amazing. She makes all who hear her energy submit to falling into the groove she displays. She does not receive the exposure via the media in the US she can establish.

Than you for been you and good bless you

14 Jenni Rivera

Jenni, you did open barriers for Mexican Americans. It's a shame that you didn't start in the you S with English music. Like Selena you had to sing in Spanish first which shows how Mexican Americans are highly discriminated upon in their own country. Hopefully it will change in the near future. RIP, we will always love ❤ you.

By far the best not vocally but her performance and lyrics were the best especially how humble and down to earth she was

Jenni where do we start she is the best woman singer out there she was the best at singing Mexican music she loved her fans she had a tough life and a lot of haters she exceeded them all she was everyones favorite and no one ever beat her R.I. P DIVA DE LA BANDA

I love you jenni rivera and your song los ovarios I know it and I can sing it and I am 11 years old

15 Vikki Carr

Vikki Carr is a four-time Latin Grammy winner and is extremely popular and loved throughout Latin America! Still recording in the studio and has a new CD out called "Viva La Vida"! Pickup your copy today and/or any of her other latin CD's and you'll hear why she is The Best!

Has a voice that is hard to beat. Dean Martin described her as "the best girl singer in the USA," and it's hard to disagree with that.

She is the most talented singer I have ever heard. She has great vocal control and colors her songs like painting on canvas.

Great singer - very under-rated here! This woman is one of the greatest latin and anglo singers of all time.

18 Mercedes Sosa

Mercedes Sosa's "Gracias A La Vida" is one of the top unforgettable latin songs of all time. A lot of the current nominees and contenders would likely be inclined to agree.

Legend of legends... Masterful voice range, power, grace. Sang "Gracias a la Vida, " one of the greatest songs of all-time.
