9 Luciano Pavarotti Luciano Pavarotti Luciano Pavarotti, Cavaliere di Gran Croce was an Italian operatic tenor who also crossed over into popular music, eventually becoming one of the most commercially successful tenors of all time.

At well over 350 pounds, he was still not as big as "Is", but Pavarotti was simply the best singer ever, regardless of weight.

By far the best singer & not only in the overweight category.

He's the original fat man.

He's my favorite singer ever.

The real reason why I was screaming and hysterical crying about the stinking Mamas and the stinking Papas is because Cass Elliot was way too FAT and way too ROUND.

I've always found Cass Elliot annoying because she got inducted into the rock and roll 🎸 hall of fame, her voice drives me nuts 🥜, she was with the Mamas and the Papas, and she was too fat and too round.

13 Martha Wash

You know her from the weather girls (it's raining men) and black box (everybody, everybody, strike it up) and c and c music factory (sweat now). Although she wasn't given credit because she was too big.

14 Israel Kamakawiwo'ole Israel Kamakawiwo'ole Israel "Iz" Kaʻanoʻi Kamakawiwoʻole translation: "The Fearless Eyed"; May 20, 1959 – June 26, 1997, also called Bruddah Iz, was an American musician, entertainer and Hawaiian sovereignty activist.

Incredible Voice, and undoubtedly the fattest guy to ever grace an album cover. Sang the incredible rendition of Somewhere Over the Rainbow featured on "50 first dates. "
Sadly Israel is now singing with a heavenly choir.
