The Top Ten

1 Anni-Frid Lyngstad Anni-Frid Lyngstad Anni-Frid Synni, Princess Reuss of Plauen, widely known as Frida Lyngstad or by just the mononym Frida, is a Swedish pop and jazz singer.

She is the most wonderful and beautiful singer in the pop music world! Thanks to her chocolate-velvet voice some songs like "Knowing Me, Knowing You"; "Money, Money, Money"; "Fernando"; "One Man, One Woman"; "I Have A Dream"; "The King Has Lost His Crown"; "Lovers Live A Little Longer"; "Super Trouper"; "Andante, Andante"; "Our Last Summer"; "The Piper"; "The Visitors" and "When All Is Said And Done" have taken on their proper sound. In my opinion, Frida's voice, appearance, style and acting skills are better than Agnetha's! I love her! I adore her!

One of the most beautiful and talented woman in the world. She has the marvelous voice and appearance. I have always had her as an example to imitate, because she has her own unforgettable style!
