Countries With the Best Singers and Bands

The Top Ten

1 Philippines The Philippines was established in March 16, 1521 and named in honor of a Spanish King whose name is King Philip of Spain II. It is located at Asia, specifically at Southeast Asia. The capital is Manila. 89% of the people there currently are native, while 11% of people there are foreigners.

The PHILIPPINES is indeed the country to beat in terms of VOCAL POWERHOUSE! Even the ordinary residents know how to sing and are actually not out of tune! As early as 2-year old, men and women, young and old, from hip hop, pop, rock, ballad, RnB, soul, upbeat, rap, etc., -a FILIPINO can really SING! The MUSIC CAPITAL of ASIA is... The PHILIPPINES!

There are many really good singers in the Philippines, and also all over the world, but the Philippines have powerful belters, and balladeers. The Philippines and other countries are just over looked by autotuned singers. Many filipinos are great at singing.

That's write the Philippines has a best singer all around the world

Indeed Philippines has the best voices in the whole wide world and I'm not saying this because I'm a Filipino. But many of our singers have been world renowned and have been recognized around the globe in every culture, in every genre I.E. lea Salonga of Les Miserables and Miss Saigon(Broadway), The Philippine Madrigal Singers who are well-known in the world of choral music for their unique style of singing while sitting in a semi circle but are still able to produce amazing harmonies and extreme dynamics that most standing choirs cannot execute well, also they are first choir in the world to win the European Grand Prix for choral singing twice (2007 & 1997), and lastly but definitely not the least, CHARICE PEMPENGCO, "The Most Talented Girl in the World." -Oprah.

2 United States The United States of America, or the U.S.A. for short, is a federal republic composed of 50 states, 48 of them are contiguous states. There are two other states, Alaska and Hawaii, which are north and south of the contiguous states, respectively. The United States declared its independence from the ...read more.

Well, USA have the famous singers, but compare to Philippines, Filipino singers can perform live without the help of autotune, if you don't believe then watch THE VOICE KIDS Philippines, and you will found out that even the kids in the Philippines are better than the other famous singers in USA that is older.

Well for me, I think they base it NOT on how many famous singers you have, I think it was voted for how many people can sing in that country...Filipinos are indeed very good when it comes to singing, Philippines is very rich in music Culture... Almost every filipino can sing and some of them are really2 good.. I would say 8-10 filipinos can sing..Try to walk on the streets of manila, you will hear good voices, even 2 or 5 year old kid on the street can sing like pro...

USA is have a good singers but Philippines is the land of the singers in the world.

They are just FAMOUS around the world that's why many people realized US will be on top. And in terms of voice quality, they are lack, sometimes autotune compared to Philippines where they never use any technical voice tune. P.S I'm canadian.

3 United Kingdom The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, commonly shortened to United Kingdom, UK or Britain is a Sovereign State located of the Northwestern coast of Europe.

The UK has by far much better modern singers than any of the other countries on this list.
Italy has by far the best classical singers in the world.

Queen sucks! Renz Verano is much better, search, You and I, it's a lot better rock version of Love of My Life!

QUEEN! That's all that needs to be said... The greatest band on the planet... EVER! Most talented, most awesome, most eclectic, and absolutely the most phenomenal band ever to grace the Earth! Ever! QUEEN will always be the very BEST! They sound totally new, fresh, relevant, and oh so Timeless! Never old / stale / dated or boring like a lot of others. Every song is so different from any other. No 2 sound even similar. They're so completely diverse, from the intensity of Stone Cold Crazy and Dead On Time to the loveliness of Love Of My Life and Save Me, there is something for everyone. QUEEN is truly jaw-dropping AWESOME, w/ 4 of the most talented musical geniuses ever, symbiotically weaving their brilliance in a treasure trove of sheer ecstasy!
QUEEN!

There are very few philipino singers famous worldwide, the US has a lot of somewhat boring pop singers, a few good bands, but Britain is king, we don't just produce dull pop we have punched above our weight in all genres and definitely have the best rock bands

11 New Zealand New Zealand is an island country in the southwestern Pacific Ocean. ...read more.

NZ singers are amazing! Such soulful tunes, I'm glad it's at 8th, but we need it higher!

Get NZ up the list! So many great singers!

New Zealand has so many great country singers and songwriters, like Lorde and Brooke Fraser. Most people in NZ write their own songs, or sing great songs in new ways

I don't understand why New Zealand is so far down when it rightfully should be up there at the top. Most people in NZ can sing and that's no exaggeration. The Maori culture has a big music influence. There's not a soul in NZ who doesn't know at least 2 people in their own family that can sing

Mika is the best

18 South Korea South Korea, officially the Republic of Korea, is a sovereign state in East Asia, constituting the southern part of the Korean Peninsula.

What the hell?! Only 17th place!?!?!?!? I completely disagree with this. Have you heard South Korean singers? They have such beautiful vocals.

SOUTH KOREA SHOULD BE #1 they have one of the most talented people from Asia in K-Pop it's so diverse K-pop world domination!

This is so biased. Who the hell did this research! I disagree with South Korea being 20th. There are so many more strong singers in South Korea than even America OR UK, but as most of South Koreans don't sing in English and the fact that South Korean music isn't marketed globally, you can't really benchmark Korean music. What the West is exposed to is a tip of the iceberg. Even some of the world's best musicians are South Korea. South Koreans are extremely tenacious and don't settle for mediocre as a nation. There is so much competition and don't keep up with producing music regularly you just don't make it in South Korea. Hence most of Korean artists study music and singing and are way better than Americans who don't know technique. Phillipianions I do believe probablly have natural talent but here again, its because they sing English songs. I have watched singing competitions and how many are really good in America and UK. You can really count on your fingers Watch South Korean ...more

Some amazing singers are from Korea, search up Ailee, Hyorin and Eunji. There are so many that no one knows about. Even though some people say that they are all girl or guy groups, there are still amazing and talented singers. Of course, some get into the group with only looks but look at Winner or Big Bang. In both groups, they actually compose and write their own songs.

This is true. Bands were popular during the 90s and around that period Pakistan pop scene was flourishing. At present I think looking at everything Pakistan has to offer they have definitely made their mark and done justice to music that Pakistan always excelled in. Bands are very much alive in Pakistan. I wish the world could give Pakistan a chance of listening to their music too

Are you kidding Pakistani singers are actually the best, I don't like being bias because I haven't checked out some of the countries that are top on here but in this case Its Pakistan that's underrated. NFAK would have performances where English people would go to see even! And we need more of that today because Pakistani classic music is the best. And they are just killing it in every genre of music if I'm honest but sometimes there's such low exposure well, because its Pakistan. And that's sad.

No Pakistani singer is the same, each has own singing abilities but every one of them are bloody great at what they do. Pakistani music in general is one of the best in the world when you look past language difference, its amazing.

Pakistani singers are really Best, Indian and Pakistan Music is almost same But Pakistani singers are famous in India Because of their unique style.
