Top Ten Best Singer/Songwriters


The Contenders: Page 10

181 Ann Wilson Ann Wilson Ann Dustin Wilson is an American musician, best known as the lead singer and songwriter of the hard rock band Heart.

Ann is The Queen of Rock. No voice and live performance compares to hers. And what songs she's written. "Barracuda", "Crazy On You"... etc. She has "wowed" us for more than 30 years and still getting better.

It's true Ann Wilson is amazing; when you think about the fact she has only written one top ten hit "Magic Man" in her whole career and she ranks as number 1 on this list when others have written many number 1 hits. It proves how awesome Ann Wilson is.

Is there a better songwriter than Ann Wilson. She is simply amazing. - hardrockfanatic

The best band! Listening to Bon Jovi has given me strength. The talent of the instrument playing is up and above...but the front one of the best! Every performance is from the heart! His voice absolutely beautiful! ! Thankyou Bon Jovi for making such incredible music!

a great musician with a great talent to create wonderful and meaningful songs in the world. - ronluna

Love his music, it's so much more than just words.

Jon Bon Jovi has that rare gift of putting down powerful words from the heart and then making magic happen when it becomes a tune. Not only can he do it well, he's done it for more than 30 years, and still bringing it! His writing and artistry, along with his extremely talented band are on the level with Dylan and the Stones. It's a body of work that that will forever be one of the greatest of all time!
