9 Shirley Bassey Shirley Bassey
10 Laura Branigan Laura Branigan Laura Ann Branigan was an American singer, songwriter, and actress known for her powerful, husky alto singing voice which spanned four octaves.

My absolute favourite singer, and an incredible woman, with one of the best voices within the last 50 years. NO ONE could sing like she could, you could literally FEEL the emotion in her voice. Something that nearly no one else could achieve but Laura.

No one ever covered or has covered Self Control or Gloria better than Laura. - Swellow

The Contenders

11 Barbra Streisand Barbra Streisand Barbara Joan Streisand, known professionally as Barbra Streisand, is an American singer, songwriter, actress, and filmmaker.
12 Dame Vera Lynn

Yup, I know, V. I have it! National Treasure - The Ultimate Collection (wartime hits). She can still warm hearts and homes :) I'm getting worried with her age and so many known people dying this year...! She is irreplaceable. Can't imagine (as much as I admire her) Lady Gaga and the likes stepping into her shoes as the new Forces' Sweetheart. It really will be an end of an era when they play "Wish Me Luck As You Wave Me Goodbye". Oh..welling up already! - Britgirl

13 Coldplay Coldplay Coldplay are a British rock band formed in 1996. The band consists of Chris Martin (lead vocalist and pianist), Jonny Buckland (lead guitarist), Guy Berryman (bassist) and Will Champion (drummer and backing vocalist). Manager Phil Harvey is often considered an unofficial fifth member. The band renamed more.

I know this is a lot more recent then what you were thinking of, but coldplay is so great to relax to that I just had to add it! - RecklessGreed
