The Top Ten

1 David Phelps 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.

Some people show bad taste here.

Never heard of him and I know why.

Best ever. Some people really show their envy here, huh. - jlfcpa60

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.

2 Jackie Evancho Jackie Evancho Jacqueline Marie "Jackie" Evancho (born April 9, 2000) is an American classical crossover singer who gained wide recognition at an early age and, since 2009, has issued an EP and seven albums, including a platinum and gold album and three Billboard 200 top 10 debuts. Evancho's 2017 album, Two Hearts, more.

Simply the most beautiful singing voice in the world.

The easiest to listen to but most powerful voice today.

She is the future of popular American Soprano's. In addition she has an amazing range of Genre' from Hard Rock to R&B sky is the limit for this young talent.

Jackie's influence on the CC genre will be broad and deep. - BobG

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

very good

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

Beautiful voice and very artistic

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.

4 Hayley Westenra Hayley Westenra Hayley Dee Westenra is a New Zealand singer, classical crossover artist, songwriter, and UNICEF Ambassador.

With her pitch perfect 8 octave range and natural melody, Hayley Westenra has the perfect combination of talent. She always presents with a professional, refined stage presence that carries her beauty and sophistication. Most other female singers of the modern age should look and learn from her.

I love her voice. I bought one of her cd. Since I bought it last year in December... so yes. I bought her christmas cd. Her christmas cd that I bought is Winter Magic. I like the songs from that cd. - Iamnotlazy

5 Charlotte Church Charlotte Church Charlotte Maria Church is a Welsh singer-songwriter, actress, television presenter and political activist.

She used to be a classical singer but she goes to pop in 2005? I don't really know. - Iamnotlazy

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

It's one thing to listen to Mark Vincent's albums and watch/listen to him on YouTube but NOTHING COMPARES to hearing Mark sing live in concert. His voice is SENSATIONAL live! And it's as powerful as the late great Luciano Pavarotti.

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.

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.

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.

19 Jonathan Antoine 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 Perez Selena Quintanilla-Pérez was an American singer, songwriter, spokesperson, actress, and fashion designer.
