1 David Phelps David Norris Phelps is an American Christian music vocalist, songwriter and vocal arranger, who is best known for singing tenor in the Gaither Vocal Band.

Classical, gospel, country, pop even some doo wop. Makes no difference he can sing it all. His whole heart goes into any song he sings. The way he can be so expressive brings music to life. He's just all around a good guy and great singer.

David is the greatest of all time. No matter what he sings. I have been following David for years and have many,many of his CD's and DVD's. If you are ever able to see David in person...do so. You will receive the greatest blessing.

He's classic, He's contemporary and He's the future...He's the standard for which all singers should try to achieve

David is not only the best tenor in Gospel music today, he is also the best Classical tenor!

Jackie makes sopranos so much more listenable with a subtle vibrato and upper lack of shrillness in the upper registers.

Simply the most beautiful singing voice in the world.

The easiest to listen to but most powerful voice today.

3 Sarah Brightman Sarah Brightman is an English classical crossover soprano, actress, musician, songwriter, conductor, and dancer.

Among the women, Sarah is in league by herself. NOBODY brings what she does to the musical table. On a scale of 1 to 100, Sarah stands alone near the top with Katherine Jenkins coming in at about 75. Jackie Evancho and Charlotte Church rate in the sixties with the rest below the 50 mark. Sarah's Brightman's DVD 'Symphony: Live in Vienna' heard via a quality sound system is unquestionable evidence of the musical standing.

She's the only one, nothing compare's to her wide spectrum. Pop, Gothic, Musical, Classic - she can do everything with her voice.

Her angelic voice and her passion of singing makes her a DIVA that nobody else can. Wonderful!

Beautiful voice and very artistic

12 Chloe Agnew
13 Russell Watson

First becoming notable as a live performer in British dining/drinking commercial business, his already obvious vocal tonality and range gifts caused listeners to suggest that he consider adding more classically oriented music to his memorized songs. Again, his apparently easy capacity to learn new and even non-English language songs began serving him well. Russell is capable of presenting his voice is such strikingly different ways within moments within the same song that as a recording listener, you would quite reasonably think that two different singers were performing a duet. Seriously strange duality. He can jump from what sounds like a full-blown classic operatic tenor voice to a playful but competent pop sound, probably within the same breath. He's quite competent and comfortable with both. Freddie Mercury understood well how it is possible to pleasingly combine pop sounds with classic operatic sounds within specific songs, and Russell shares that insight as well. Comparing ...more

14 Andrea Bocelli Andrea Bocelli is an Italian classical crossover tenor, recording artist, and singer-songwriter. Born with poor eyesight, he became permanently blind at the age of 12 following a football accident.

17 Hollie Steel

1st time I heard her sing it was on Britain's Got Talent & I thought that I was listening to the most beautiful singer in the world so beautiful that she brought me to tears. I got to meet her in person also & couldn't believe that I was actually meeting my all time favorite singer, I was so excited to meet her in person.

18 Mark Vincent

I have followed his career since discovering his original performances on Australia's Got Talent. Great voice ... He should be a recognized international star.

I attended one of his concerts recently and! His voice is so big it could power an aeroplane! And it's such a beautiful, majestic voice. He even sang a little without a microphone and it's almost as powerful as when he sings with a microphone... a voice in a trillion.

Mark Vincent won Australia's Got Talent in 2009 at the tender age of 15 when he already possessed the voice of a grown man. His version of "Nessun Dorma" (at aged 15) is MIND-BLOWING! Since winning, he has released 7 albums (one with fabulous Australian artist, Marina Prior), all charting extremely well. Mark has also had roles in 2 musicals - "Dirty Dancing" & "My Fair Lady" - & he has been the special guest of Dame Katherine Jenkins on 2 of her concert tours.

True to his Italian roots, Mark Vincent has a commanding GLORIOUS voice, an engaging personality & he's very easy on the eye. He sings in both English & Italian & his concert tours are magical. He has the best male voice I've had the pleasuring of hearing since Luciano Pavarotti.

19 Jonathan Antoine Jonathan Antoine is a classically trained English tenor. He rose to fame after appearing on the sixth series of Britain's Got Talent in 2012 as one half of the classical duo Jonathan and Charlotte.
20 Selena Quintanilla Perez Selena Quintanilla-Pérez was an American singer, songwriter, spokesperson, actress, and fashion designer.

Selena is my favorite singer in the world.What happened to her is so very sad but.I think she is the best out of any other. I fell in love while watching her movie.Listen to Biddi-Biddi-Bom-Bom. Youl look be her to.

21 Mario Lanza Mario Lanza was an American tenor of Italian ancestry, and an actor and Hollywood film star of the late 1940s and the 1950s. Lanza began studying to be a professional singer at the age of 16.

In terms of sheer vocal beauty, Lanza's voice was and still is the "gold standard" by which others must be judged to be considered among the best tenor voices ever recorded. His recordings inspired Pavarotti, Domingo, Carerras and a list of others that could fill a page. No other has had and still has other tenors creating recordings to present their versions of Lanza's memorable recordings. I personally own more than a dozen of those "tribute to" Lanza CDs and the same was true back when vinyl was the main recording medium. Easy to find Lanza errors including mispronounced words and silly stuff that should have been edited out by recording staff rather than released as permanent recordings. But in terms of astonishingly beautiful tonality, his performances have yet to be even equaled. One problem was that he knew it which was probably largely responsible for him acting like a spoiled brat.

Best allrounder no longer from past
