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, ...read 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 is good

2 Amira Willighagen

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.

The natural ability of Amira sets her apart for all other singers, having such a pure and perfect voice only comes along once in a millennium. There are other great singers in different styles which demands different usage of their voices but if you are looking for the quality of tone, pitch and control there is no one better than Amira. Her voice penetrates the heart and soul of the listener that brings out an emotional response of joy, love and peace. This is her gift, this is what she was given to share with the world, and I think the world is a better place because of her

So many extraordinarily talented ladies, that choosing only one is difficult, but Amira's voice is just so incredibly beautiful, and combined with her ease of stage presence and perfect delivery every time, Amira is a stand out performer.

Is going with the formal training to become a traditional opera singer, rather than classical crossover. This should serve her well in Europe, though in the USA there are not as many fans. She still has some catching up to do to be the equal of Janeckova.

3 Halsey Halsey Ashley Nicolette Frangipane, known by her stage name Halsey, is an American singer and songwriter. She was born on September 29, 1994 in New Jersey. 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.

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.

I'm impressed she's so high

She is so good

Why is she on this list
Ariana, Demi or Jojo should be here! 😨

4 Alessia Cara Alessia Cara Alessia Caracciolo, born on July 11th, 1996 is professionally known as Alessia Cara, is a Canadian singer and songwriter.

Comparing the pop singers on this list with the classical singers is like comparing Toyota Camrys with Lamborghinis. Alessia is a sweet and talented girl, and deserved her Grammy win despite the naysayers, but next to Janeckova its not even close. As for Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato, etc compared to anybody who can actually sing, just no. Best thing would be for there to be a separate list for Best Pop Singers of 2018.

Love her song scars to your beautiful, so inspirational - Midnight_Summer

Love her voice it's so unique

I think she is because of most of her song are like about don't hurt urself and if you do your still baeutiful.

She is best known for writing break up songs and for having more than 5 Grammys. She became interested in country music when she was around 9 years old and after watching a documentary about ...read more.

No. All she does is breakup songs. Grow up Taylor, it's hard to feel sorry for you: a famous singer who lives in a million dollar mansion, has thousands and thousands of fans and having a few pop star friends yourself. Still not as bad as Justin beiber, Rebecca Black or Nicki Minaj, she certainly doesn't deserve to be one of the best.

When her career is over she will be considered the greatest female singing artist of all time! Just wait and see! As far as record sales and concert ticket sales, no one was as successful as Taylor at the same age as her! She is SUPERWOMAN!

She's much better that most of the girls above, just saying

Queen of Pop

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.

Absolutely beautiful voice on this 19-year old, puts all of the so-called pop princesses and pop divas to shame. Ariana who?

Actively trains in voice and competes to track her progress. She also is involved in concerts or opera's usually every month and is getting good reviews Wish Patricia success and a long career

She works hard on her technique and it shows. She's going to be the best singer in the world.

Better than any pop singer.

The voice of the century! So powerful and moving, pure magic! This is an angel who came with a great mission in this world. Her aura has a natural healing power. She is truly amazing!

Her voice has magical spell. Listen once and addict to it

She is a fantastic singer with a wonderful voice and has an ability to express both emotion and explosivity.

Une future grande chanteuse lyrique. Une voix de soprano puissante capable de transmettre une grande émotion.

15 Camilla Kerslake

Camilla Kerslake is an English classical crossover singer from London - Buggy01

16 Daya Daya Grace Martine Tandon, professionally known as Daya, is an American singer, songwriter, and record producer from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Daya's vocals are so powerful, and most of her songs are relatable. She's a gorgeous inspirational tone deaf female pop star and should be rocking high above this list in her otherwise underrated stardom.

17 Camila Cabello Camila Cabello Camila Cabello (born March 3, 1997) is an American musician. Camila was best known for being part of the girl group Fifth Harmony. Fifth Harmony are known for songs like Worth It, Work From Home, All In My Head (Flex), Bo$, and Sledgehammer. Camila left Fifth Harmony in December, 2016.

Yet another autotune princess who can credit her stunning good looks for most of her success.

Dudes she should be in #1 like honestly her song Havana is THE BEST!

I saw her live in Amsterdam a few weeks ago and it was my best concert experience yet.
She is killing it without fifth harmony!

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

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?

At least people who are recovering from surgery have an excuse for getting hooked on painkillers. She admits she just did it to be cool and because she was bored.

She is so inspirational. Her voice is so powerful. She is kind-hearted and thinks positively

She makes all her song with interests

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.
