Best Classical Crossover Singers

Which one do you think is the best Classical Crossover Singer?

The Top Ten

1 David Phelps

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

He is the best tenor all around...and he is a humble God fearing man...

Best all around singer!

Simply the most beautiful singing voice in the world.

The easiest to listen to but most powerful voice today.

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

The angelical voice I've ever heard

3 Sarah Brightman Sarah Brightman

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

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

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

6 Joanna Forest

The singer with the wonderful voice.
