Best Male Vocalists of Today


The Top Ten

1 David Phelps David Phelps

Greatest male vocalist/tenor in the world! His voice is stunning and so powerful! He captures your complete attention when he sings and his range is amazing! He keeps getting better with time. He is also a gifted songwriter and writes most of his music. His music is is excellent in every way! The combination of his powerful voice and music that ministers to hearts everywhere make him the number #1 male vocalist in any genre of music! I'm just glad he sings and uses his talent for God's glory!

Bill Gaither is hands-down the most used-by-God man I have witnessed in my life. He and his wife have had the opportunity to support and propel many a great giant in the world of gospel music and beyond. Powerhouses like Guy Penrod, Steve Green, and Larnelle Harris have blessed many listeners by lending their voices to the Vocal Band over the years. But, in my opinion, none will ever come close to matching the talent God has given David Phelps to steward. And David Phelps has, by all means, been a good and faithful steward of that talent. I sat looking for some examples of songs to list as my favorites, and an hour later I have some twenty tabs open in my browser, tears streaming down my face, and multiple times I had my hands up in the air, praising the Lord. That is the power of David's range. Unbelievable. From the soft angelic high tones in "Leave It There" (A Capella), to the mighty power from songs like "The Love of God." And then the songs that feature his whole range, such as ...more

David Phelps is absolutely the Best Male Vocalist of any time. He has a phenomenal range, his arrangements are original and flawless, and the songs he writes will leave you breathless. I have been fortunate enough to see this fabulous artist several times in concert over the years and he never disappoints. I have never seen him give less than 100% to his fans on and off stage. In meeting David, I found a person who is kind, funny, and just awesome to be around. He once told me I was fun too watch at a concert. I told him he was too. It's always a wonderful day when a David Phelps concert comes to my area. I encourage any music lover to listen to the hevenly voice of David Phelps. You won't be disappointed!

What a magnificent 5 octave range, and an abundance of power! A treasure trove of of musical talent. A blessing to the ears, the heart, the soul.

He also participated in side projects like Julien K and Dead By Sunrise. He committed suicide in 2017 after a period of depression. more.

Simply, no one can match his vocals. How can be guys like Michael Jackson be above him? These guys can sing only in one note. He can sing in all notes. He can scream and go as high as mount everest, then drop his vocals to as low and deep as Pacific Ocean. None can match his wide range of vocals. Linkin Park are lucky to have him. The only guy close to him is Jared Leto of 30 seconds to Mars.

I can't believe the guy on top (I have no idea how to spell his name) is even there, like seriously. Anyway... I have NEVER heard a voice like Chester's. This guy could do anything.

Inspiration. Legend, rest in peace.

One of the best singers of all time.Sings like an angel but screams like a demon.-DarkBoi-X

He is an American singer, songwriter, musician and multi-instrumentalist. He is best own as the lead singer of the American pop-rock band Panic! At The Disco. He is the only original remaining member. more.

Brendon definitely deserves to be higher on this list. He deserves more credit in general. His vocals are incredible, in my opinion he's number one.

He definitely deserves to be higher on this list, (#1 in my opinion) his vocal range is genuinely amazing, and his voice can fit multiple genres. He sounds even better (and the same) live, which isn't the case for some artists today. He's been around for about 14 years, and is only growing more popular. Brendon Urie is no doubt one of the best (or the best) vocalist (at least male vocalist) of our generation.

The vocal range and live performances of Brendon Urie say it all. He is definitely number one in his vocals together with a more than awesome personality!

Hands down the best male vocalist we have right now...don’t sleep on Clay Aiken though. Dude has pipes

This guy is humble with a great voice and he lets his music speak for itself, I go looking for his music because he has hidden gems... he deserves top three without a doubt, best part is he sounds very similar when he performs live as well... so for me he is arguably the best right now.

He donated (at least) a remarkable 500,000,000 dollars to charity. Michael is also known as The King of Pop (a title given to him by Elizabeth Taylor) or under more.

In my opinion MJ had the most vocal command with an untouchable tone. His mastery of music theory was really incredible too which contributed to his powerful song writing. he's my number one.

Why is he on this list? He's been dead for 9 years. - benhos

Michael Jackson has true dancing talent that no one can beat. He has his own style. He is amazing!

He’s dead. 💀 Get him off here so he can suffer his punishment for child molestation. "
