Those belts are unparalleled.

John belongs on the top on this list in all ways.

First of all, I like skillet. They have good songs and awesome guitar rifts. However; john cooper is not a good singer, and should not even be considerd for this list. - cleor

3 John Schlitt (Petra)

John Schlitt 4 #1

John Cooper and John Schlitt are my favourite in Christian music. Both has got different style and they are unique in their own way. But I think in this list Schlitt should be No. 1 - SKM

Definitely one of the more unique voices in the industry and obviously one of the best.

This guy is an amazing vocalist

Wish he was in top 3. He's my favorite singer of all time!

Tobymac rocks the mic effortlessly, and he's 50! Jesus Freak, Tonight, and Funky Jesus Music wouldn't exist if not for him. Go Gotee!

9 Trevor McNevan (Thousand Foot Krutch)

Trevor McNevan's voice is very versatile. He can do anything from rap, to metal, to singing softer songs.

I like his style with the rock/ rap. It kinda sounds like a modern D.C. talk. - cleor

Amazing writer, amazing voice, amazing talent, no doubt.

12 Mac Powell (Third Day)

Great voice! I could listen to him sing all day! He sounds just as good live as he does recorded. - cleor

Mac Powell and Bart Millard should be the top two spots, the others are just overrated, especially skillet. Yeah skillets a good band but I'd never put their singer in the number 1 spot

27 Matt Thiessen (Relient K)

The Stunning vocals he has proves supremacy the wide range and the feeling he adds to it. None can Compare, except Freddie Mercury, but he can't be on this list.

28 Greg X. Volzs (Petra)

Early CCM (70s and 80s) but his range was up large and in-charge and I heard him sing last year where he still had that special quality and hasn't lost all of his range at 60 years of age! Greg has to be top 5 of all time!

I love her! She needs more vocals in Skillet.

32 Jon Micah Sumrall (Kutless)
33 Jeremy Depoyster (The Devil Wears Prada)
34 Hayley Williams (Paramore)

Paramore is the best Christian Band (in my opinion).

35 Josh Smith (Ashes Remain)
