Best Singers for Singing High Notes

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Brendon Urie Brendon Urie Brendon Boyd Urie, more commonly known as Brendon Urie, was born April 12, 1987, in St. George, Utah. 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. ...read more.

His theatrical voice is to die for! He has a spectacular range for a male voice and is an extremely versatile singer (as is his band Panic! At The Disco) and he always impresses with what new music he performs. I heard him live this past summer at a free concert in my hometown and it may have been hands down the greatest show I ever saw. This mans voice is truly magical. Just listen to his music, it speaks for itself.

Brendon urges vocal range is beyond AMAZING and I'm not just saying it because he's my favorite celebrity I'm saying it because for a guy he hits extremely high notes as well as the low notes I can even hit them for example in the song Death of a bachelor me and my friends try so hard to hit the low notes of his song

His voice is simply amazing, he has perfect range and has perfect tone and great singing technique. Also has an amazing and unique band.

He should be #1

22 Rob Halford Rob Halford Robert John Arthur "Rob" Halford is an English singer and songwriter, who is best known as the lead vocalist for the Grammy Award-winning heavy metal band Judas Priest and famed for his powerful wide ranging operatic voice.

Why is the metal god not in this list. He has some of the most epic screams in the History of Music. Example: Victim Of Changes, Dreamer Deciever, Painkiller, Blood Red Skies, Dissident Agressor, Beyond The Realms Of Death, The Ripper etc... He should at least be in the top 3.

One of the most underrated singers of all-time, only because he's in a metalband. His high-pitched screams songs like Victim Of Changes, Screaming For Vengeance en Dreamer Deceiver are almost unprecedented.

Total respect for him and his English heavy metal band is what he gets. This man can hit every ear piercing note with his awesome voice.

Quite possibly tied for the greatest metal singer of all time with Bruce Dickinson. - CostcoHotDogs

23 Layne Staley Layne Staley Layne Thomas Staley was an American musician who served as the lead singer and co-songwriter of the rock band Alice in Chains, which he founded with guitarist Jerry Cantrell in Seattle, Washington in 1987. Alice in Chains rose to international fame as part of the grunge movement of the early 1990s. ...read more.

Seriously, this guy should be called the King of Soul. I've never heard anyone, not a jazz or soul singer, sing as soulful as Staley. That combined with his raw vocal power is worth the number 1 spot. His chest voice was huge and his unique vibrato's started a legion of imitators. I don't know why why he and Whitney Houston are on the lower spots...maybe that's why music sucks these days.

I can not believe Layne is at no 20. He should have topped the list. Listen to love hate love and compare that with any song of Mariah Carrey.

Layne has an excellent voice. Try listening to some Alice in Chains songs, and you'll see he deserves higher. - Skeptical_Silence

How come all these pop singers are in the top ten, and Layne is here at #19? Invalid list! - IronSabbathPriest

24 Leona Lewis Leona Lewis Leona Louise Lewis is a British singer, songwriter and animal welfare campaigner. She was born and raised in the London Borough of Islington, London, England where she attended the BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology.

She is such a blessed person! We all know she's super talented, even though she's still young and has a lot of things to learn. Her high notes blow me away! I know that singers like Whitney Houston, Charice and Lea Michele might have strongest vocals and do better in high notes than her, but she's definitely better than people like Demi Lovato and Christina Aguilera. Definitely.

Actually, Leona can sing higher and stronger than Lea Michele (the little baby with a fat face who steals songs and has no creativity to come up with her own), and she possesses a suberb four octave range! Leona is a phenomenon. No, her voice is not as strong as Whitney's, or Christina's, but her voice is more pure in general than Mariah Carey. Besides, Mariah is starting to lose her voice. Did anyone hear listen to her song "Migrate" where she sounded like a Spanish Nikki Minaj rapping trashily with T-Pain?

Hands down, Leona is the most gifted high notes singer besides Minnie, Deniece, and Debelah. But her voice is stronger than all of these women.

Celine, Whitney, and Christina have more powerful voices but they just don't have the same range as Leona and Minnie.

Probably she has the most beautiful, solid and sparkly falsetto and head voice right now.

Leona should at least be in top 15

25 Freddie Mercury Freddie Mercury Freddie Mercury (5th September 1946 - 24th November 1991) was a Tanzanian-born British singer, songwriter and record producer, known as the lead vocalist and songwriter of the rock band Queen. He also became known for his flamboyant stage persona and four-octave vocal range. Before he became a singer ...read more.

I honestly don't know how Freddie is so low on the scale. He should be number one. I bet I'm going to get people saying "Oh you're just old! Get with the times" I'm only 14 and I know he is amazing and is deserving of the number one spot"

It still gives me chills to listen to him sing-he is hands down the best vocalist who has ever lived.

Really? He beats all of these guys and this makes no sense he beats Michael and Mariah Carey

What an stupis list.. This guy is the greatest singer of all time and he have nearly 5 octaves... he can hit high notes effortlessly... - Swagath

Listen to his song "Breathless"
I bet you will vote for him after you here the song!

He made one of the best songs I have ever listened (you are not alone )

I think he hits F#5 in Breathless, which is extremely good for a male vocalist... Not better than me though because I can hit G5 with great ease and I can hit Bb5 bye

27 Sandi Patty

Are you kidding? Sandi Patty is the greatest soprano and female artist who has the highest notes I've ever heard. Her vocal range was over 4 octaves and her version of The Star Spangled Banner put her on the map in the secular world'! Just when u think she couldn't get any higher she does! Her voice is magnificent and supernatural! She is a legend in Christian music and has won 40 Dove Awards and 5 Grammys. Performed before 5 presidents and on national television. She has been dubbed "The Voice" because of her powerful voice and her legendary ballads that end with magnificent Sandi Patty high notes that only Sandi can do! - Jimhensley69

She has the most amazing voice. I would say the best in the world

29 Minnie Riperton

Her octaves (has publicly hit 7 octave and some have said 8 octave) are consistently higher than Carrey's and she had more control. Carrey is a studio singer who is helped by audio engineering. Her live performances are scratchy and much lower in the 4 octave range. Call Rippertons note a whistle note (maybe you are referring to 'Loving You"), but it's a note and it's clear.

She may be gone, but she has a lovely voice.

Smooth in that range. That's tough

Tis pole is inaccurate mainly because Minnie Ripperton should OBVIOUSLY be #1 in this category. There was no singer EVER! who hit higher notes or had a wider range than Minnie Ripperton(5-7 octaves)
Not only does she have approximately 2-3 more octaves than Mariah, but she hits higher notes than her and everybody on this list...with ease!, and she does it live! She also quite obviously its higher notes than Zayn, but she also hits lower notes than mim as well. pnest, Minnie Ripperton is #1 in the category, I'm sure the other singers on this list will hands down agree as well

I REALLY FAINTED WHEN I HEARD HER VOICE! I love her too much I will Burst this second! I am a great big fan of her! I love her no matter what! Just go to youtube an listen to her singing the Polonaise when she was just 12 when she sang it!

Her voice spans 4 octaves and she can reach very high notes.

32 Ignazio Boschetto

Lyric tenor,1/3 of il vollo, handsome, Italian, funny, 19 years old, can break glass, you name it he's got it!

33 Kate Bush Kate Bush

How is Kate Bush not in the top ten? Listen to songs like "Wow," "Wuthering Heights," "The Wedding List," and "Violin." She can sing HIGH!

No idea how she wasn't already in this list.. just listen to Wuthering Heights!

She should be number 1 in my opinion. Listen to Rockets tail or especiallly Wuthering Heights and you will understand. The people in the top 10 in list list doesn't make sense because most of them use autotune. Kate bushs career was mostly 70's, 80's and 90's, so autotune wasnt a thing. Her voice was at its highest in the 70's though. - Doom

34 Michael Kiske Michael Kiske Michael Kiske is a singer best known as the former lead vocalist for the German power metal band Helloween.

He has the best vocal range I've ever heard. If you don't believe me, listen to "Eagle Fly Free" by Helloween - ryanrimmel

I really hate seeing autotuned pop singers way higher than true vocal talents and masters, like M. Kiske. Wake up people! - Metal_Treasure

35 Maeve Ni Mhaolchatha
36 Lea Michele Lea Michele

She's the most powerful woman I've ever seen... Because she knows how to use her talent, her voice is awesome.

She is amazing, your control is amazing, she's have a Eb6...
Sometimes powerful, Sometimes Sweet

Its amazing how she does a simply song be so emotive and how we know how she is feeling with 3 mins of great vocals.
