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...

BORING!

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, ...read more.

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

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

3 Sarah Brightman 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.

What a load of rubbish!

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.

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.

17 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.

Mark Vincent's 8th album to be released soon!
