Best Female Singers of 2018

Who deserves to be known as the best Female singer for 2018?

The Top Ten

1 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, more.

No other singer can capture the soul and emotion of her audience like Jackie Evancho. After Seven albums reaching #1 on Billboard's Classical Chart, Gold and Platinum sellers, and a list of accomplishments in the music world only something like Wikipedia can keep track, Jackie has earned the respect and admiration of millions of people. - Buggy01

Jackie Evancho is one of the rare artists that uses her entire talents all the time, the emotion she transmits with her singing is sensational to say the least, her live performances are totally alive with her spirit. her hand movements, her expressions, her Aurora and last but not least her Energy Field is felt by the whole audience, its magic to be included in her life when she is performing live.

Gifted and innovative with a signature high note at the end of some of her songs. Must be heard to believed. Also her hands "dance" with the music. Still hasn't peaked.

She has been the best and gets better every year.

2 Amira Willighagen Amira Willighagen Amira Willighagen is a Dutch soprano singer who won the sixth season of Holland's Got Talent in 2013 at the age of 9.

Best there is!

More of a traditional opera voice, which is popular in Europe, but not too much in the US.

According to my ears amira has a pure voice jackie cannot match that

Judging between a mezzo (Jackie Evancho) and a soprano (Amira) is an apples and oranges kind of thing. They sing pretty much the same repertoire, and one voice may fit one song better for one song and the other sound better for another song. For this reason, I generally don't like competitions between musicians. There's room in this ugly world for many beautiful voices! My ear favors the richness of the mezzo voice, and I am torn in choosing between the two. However, I will cast my vote for Amira solely on my observation that she has a slight edge in stage presence.

She was born on June 26th 1993 in Boca Raton, Florida to Joan Grande and Edward Butera.

I just like songs and sweet voice

Ariana Grande is just a fantastic singer. She's got such a lovely voice and she's so pretty. Ariana Grande's songs are absolutely brilliant that she should be number 1.

I absolutely love Ariana Grande so in my opinion I think that she is definitely the best singer.

She started her career by releasing songs on SoundCloud, and now she is a well-known pop singer with hits like Bad at Love, and Now or Never. She had originated more.

Halsey May have swear words in her songs but her voice is everything. And her beat in the song is so catchy

This is my vote. When she collabs with the Chainsmokers, does Now or Never, and Without Me, there is really no explanation. - GeneralJP

Her songs have a great story and emotion to it

From "Badlands" the definition of a raged lady trapped in a mental state without escape to "hopeless fountain kingdom" a wonderful story of love with an alike concept to romeo and juliet.

Kesha's vocals are better than 1/2 of the people on this list...just saying

Jackie Evancho and Sarah Brightman in 2018? - 445956

D**n straight Sarah Brightman in 2018. Kesha's current tour is playing modest 1200-3800 seat theaters, with Sarah Brightman's current tour playing, and selling out 12,000 seat arenas. Brightman at age 90 will still be better than the extremely average Kesha.

My PRINCESS! I LOVE HER SINCE I didn't even know 5h that well. When I saw their music videos I only liked Mila. She is my idol, I love her and Shawn Mendes and they both are nominated for the Grammy's!, I cried when I found out. Especially when I saw Shawn's video. I hope they both win and even though they both re nominated for POP VOCAL ALBUM, no matter who wins I know that I love them both. 1 year or 2 years since 5H and she is nominated for the Grammy's I couldn't be more happy and proud! I LOVE CAMILA CABELLO and SHAWN MENDES more than I love myself.

Havana is one of the best songs ever. She's pretty as anything, she should be at least top 5!

She actually relies heavily on autotune, which you can hear in Never Be The Same (which was mediocre), although Havana was good. - allamassal

Camila doesn't use auto tune she just uses a backing track and actually she sound better live.I love her so much she has come so far and she has a very big future ahead of her xxx

I'm not a fan of her music. However, I can tell that she has matured in her songwriting with songs like "Tell Me You Love Me" and stuff like that. She's not a Disney Channel kid anymore, she is a grown woman. - galaxyfox

Did not care too much that her fans saved up concert ticket and travel money, the Heroin was much more important to her. She just canceled her entire 2018 tour to go to rehab. Can you say Amy Winehouse?

The queen of vocals. Better than Ariana Grande.

Best singer In the world!

Getting up there at age 57, but she was the finest voice of her generation, and was still putting the likes of Christina Aguilera and Beyoncé under the table until at least age 50. Still doing boffo sellout tour dates right into late 2017.

44 Hollyn Hollyn Holly Marie Miller, who goes by the stage name Hollyn, is a mixture of Pop, R&B, and a Singer and Songwriter of Christian music.

How is she so low on the list!?!?!? She should be NUMBER ONE! No one can hold a match to her music! She has her own unique style that just blows EVERYONE else on this list out of the water! Best singer of all time!

50 Sterre van Boxtel

For such a tiny nation, Netherlands has a number of fine singers on this list. Sterre is the youngest, and in my opinion the finest of all of them.

Comparing Sterre van Boxtel with the other young Dutch girl, Amira Willighagen, you will find van Boxtel's tone much smoother, and her delivery more on-key. Better overall.
