Female Singers With the Most Powerful VoicesMosesG20
The Top Ten
Perrie is honestly an amazing singer. She hits her high notes perfectly live. She hits her low notes perfectly live. Before she got her tonsils out, her normal speaking voice was deep. Well, deeper than it is now that is. Yet, she still hit her high notes perfectly. Not a step behind. When she did get her tonsils out, she still hit the high notes perfectly. Even better if she could. She doesn't think her voice is all that and that's what I love about her. Her high note in the Little Mix song 'About the Boy' gives me shiver. Her note makes your heart stop (in a good way) in Little Mix's famous song, 'Change Your Life'. Everything is amazing and she puts all her effort in it. She really is talented. Perrie Edwards is Number 1 out of over 100 female singers that are in their 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, and even higher. And Perrie is 21! She deserves more credit than she's getting. xStellax
Strong head as well as chest voice. She's like the queen of belts. While she can't go as a whistle tone, I've heard some pretty impressive notes come out of this girl. She's in a wonderful girl band called Little Mix, and she's only 19!
Perrie is the most highest voice
Female Singers With the Most Powerful Voices
that is of course perrie with the powerful and strong voice which is amazing. not only she has a strong voice, her parents are of course singers.
For sheer vocals, incredible control.
Houston's 1985 debut album, Whitney Houston, became the best-selling debut album by a female act at the time of its release. The album was also named Rolling Stone's best album of 1986, and was ranked at number 254 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. Her second studio album, Whitney (1987), became the first album by a female artist to debut at number one on the Billboard 200 albums chart. Houston's crossover appeal on the popular music charts as well as her prominence on MTV, starting with her video for "How Will I Know"
The voice. Above and beyond!
7 consecutive number 1 hits, highest selling debut album of all time, highest selling sound track of all time, longest lasting single at number 1 on the billboard charts ( 14 weeks ) most awarded woman in the world and more... Her vocal ability as a singer was above reproach. Her flexibility and quick transition of notes was incredible, length of notes and Amazing power was and second to non, even male, the timber and velvety quality was beauty to your ears and the voice herself had unchallengeable clarity. If you asked any singer that is before Houston on this list, who is the greatest singer you would most likely find they would say Whitney Houston.V 56 Comments
Christina Aguilera is one of the rare singers with such a large, strong, soulful voice. She may sound different than she was when she was younger, but she still amazes a lot of people out there.
Vocal prodigy and one of the best Vocal performers in the world.
Christina Agulera should be number one instead of Perrie Edwards because her (Christina) has way better vocals.V 69 Comments
Most people define "Powerful Voice" as to ability to reach high notes and to sustain it for a long seconds until blood runs in every pore of the singer... But its bloody wrong... Powerful Voice is not about imitating bird's pitch or ambulance signal... It is all about how a certain singer attracts people to listen to her voice because of its ability to address the feeling/passion of the composer of the song... And after hearing the voice you will be enchanted to listen again and again... And I think Sarah Geronimo of her generation has the one and only possesses such ability and no one else more...
She is the great singer in the world
She tells story of emotions of the song she sings.. Listening to songs she remake, she can revived it well and surpasses even more beautiful.. Making an old song a favorite again.. Songs like"You changed my Life, MAybe this time, wont last a day without You, It takes a man and a woman, broken vow and many more..." She is next to Beyonce knowles.. She has everthing! She can dance, act, SING all kinds of Genre.. And its usually from her heart and chest.. Ballad, rap, pop, acoustic and can growls, whistles and powered shift long busting notes.. She delivers good personality living through music and she should be titled THE NEW INTERNATIONAL DIVINE SINGER ICON in the music industry...
Sarah sings with emotions and doesn't have to sing songs with high notes just to prove that she's indeed a powerful singer and a total performer of her generation. She truly deserves to be on the top ten.V 297 Comments
Demi has an amazing voice. Not only does she have amazing songs but she can also sing amazingly in live shows. She puts so much passion in her music and its clearly shown through her music. She can sing the lowest of the notes and the highest and she can hold them for so long. She holds the record for longest note held in a live performance by a Female. Her voice is like the definition of perfection to be honest, her voice just is so different from others which makes her voice so amazing! And the fact that she is just 21 is MINDBLOWING. I'm telling you, she is one of the greatest artists EVER!
Demi has one of the most powerful voices I've heard. Sure she may not be a 5 with the octave range, however her live preformances DO make up for it. No one can show nearly the same amount of emotion in her songs than Demi does. She literally pours all of her heart and soul and you can feel her pain when she sings. In my opinion, Demi, Christina, and Mariah deserve to all be top. Other artists such as Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift don't even have anywhere near the vocals Demi does however they get more recognition; totally ridiculous. People need to see how much of an incredible and strong artist Demi really is.
We don't need singer who can sing in 5 or 4 octave or singer who can sing with whistle register. What we need is singer who can sing perfectly without using auto-tune and don't over sing. - BeaM456
Demi is the BEST. She is so underrated. It clearly doesn't get better than it. I'm a lovatic for life and foreverrr. Love you Demi! Stay strong!
Demi Lovato has a strong voice. She is the most powerful singer that I've eve seen. But shes also beautiful and challenging and being inspirational to other people too. She is very nice to her fans and she is open up a real thing about herV 132 Comments
The woman that has EVERYTHING! Shes got the hits like rihanna, the voice like whitney Houston, the looks of a supermodel, the money of a bank, the dance moves of a choreographer, she has everything. She did glastonbury (the worlds biggest music festival) only a few months ago, And she was the first female artist to headline Glastonbury and it has been around for over 20 years. She writes the majority of her songs, and she makes the dances for the majority of her songs. Jo Whiley (The uk's biggest radio/music Reviewer) Said that at Glastonbury, she re-hearsed for 10 hours a day, 6 days a week, for a few months for the gig. She did everything herself, She's a real perfectionist, planning every aspect of the show: the staging, the costumes, the dancers, the music, everything!... She is what I define as the queen of music. 16 time grammy award winner, which is the most for a well known female artist, she was the first woman to have 5 grammys in 1 night, and then she surpassed that in 2009 ...more
Beyonce with her horse voice? She can't touch Whitney who had far richer and much more pleasant tone. - marto1
Beyonce has better vocals than Perrie Edwards!
Beyonce has amazing vocals.
Beyonce is too good for the Top Ten for goodness sake, let's get her to Number 1. An incredible chest voice and vocal range overall, she has a four octave vocal range WITHOUT WHISTLE REGISTER DAMMIT. No matter how high her voice goes up with her belts, it just remains the same timbre. It sounds so natural.
Do yourselves and society all a favour, get her to the top of this list.
Because no one can beat celine
Celine dion has a 5 octaves Bb2-C#6,1 note & a semitone
She can even reach an E6.
Her chest voice is G5.
Listen to her song THE POWER OF DREAM, her belt note there is C5.
Listen to her song THE POWER OF LOVE, her belt note there is Eb5, and her headtone note there is Bb5.
Listen to her song SORRY FOR LOVE, her highest note there is a G5.
Listen to her song ALL BY MYSELF, her belt note there is F5.
Celine dion can belt songs and hold it for a long scnds.
Well deserve to be include in top 10.
You are a living legend.
By the way most of her Spanish songs are an A5 note.
It's obviously Celine Dion. She has a five octave range and still able to hit the high notes at her age 45. No one can beat her. She is a living legend, she is the biggest selling female artist of all time! She has emotions in her songs so much
She also has the most powerful sex appeal. Very sexy woman.V 57 Comments
Adele's vocals are way better than Perrie Edwards!
Her voice is so powerful.
Adele no doubt is the best singer of the current generation. Nobody compares to her. She has great vocals as well as has emotions in her voice which most of the singer these days lack.V 39 Comments
Mariah Carey should be number 1, because she has a 5 octave vocal range and has the ability to reach notes in the 7th octave vocal range as well just go back and listen to Mariah Carey first album and you will hear all of the 7th octave range high notes as well, the one song that really shows off her 5-7 octave vocal range the most is the song Vision of Love can't nobody sing that song she sang that song a certain way that nobody can't duplicate and it was enhanced I just want to say if you do try to sing that song please pray that you wont bust a vocal cord and don't try this at home.
This 5 range octave singer should be number 1.
Should be #1
Nobody beats Mariah. 5 is an INSULT. She has one of those voices that you INSTANTLY recognise, plus her whistle register?! - AstraMoonV 75 Comments
Best " all around female singer on this generation" powerful voice, haunting songs, she does transmit with her voice what the lyrics are. Best singer in the world, hands down
Why in the world is Amy number 27?! Her voice is so beautiful. Definitely should be on the top 3.
This girl deserves top 10 status, a truly powerful voice that easily expresses the meaning of her songs.
Amy Lee is an amazing singer. She has such control, such volume, that it makes me wish I could carry a tune in a bucket just so I could sing her stuff myself!V 13 Comments
Are you kidding you put those crappy white gals over Aretha? I guess the original poster was going for boobage.
ARETHA DESERVES TO BE #1!
What is this list
Note only can she belt, but can sing softly, bend a lyric like no other, and at her best was the best
The most amazing voice ever!V 7 Comments
No screaming, belting, or auto-tune. Pure technical skill = power. - BobG
One of the most beautiful voices I've heard in my life time. She doesn't only have amazing technique, she also has so much heart - and that's something we need more of in the music industry. Enough with all the trashy pop idols that become big and then everyone forgets about them. We need people with talent and emotion - and Jackie is one of them. So proud of her!
Attend at least one of her concerts. I dare you.
She should be a major star! One of the best voices ever.V 15 Comments
In my opinion, she has a weak voice. - Misfire
Hell no, katy perry can't sing and she has one of the worst voices I've ever heard. Yelling is not powerful. She can't sing live, on her songs it's all computer technology that make her sound better and even then she sounds like crap. Always sounds like she just ran a lap and is out of breath, there's a difference between powerful and just plain out loud and obnoxious. There are so many singers better than this boring, basic blond bimbo but sadly they aren't as famous and don't get as much recognition as this talentless twit. If someone thinks that katy perry is one of the best singers it just shows that they're either 12 years old or they have no taste. I know singing is subjective and some people might like one singer more than another, but this is objective, it's an objective fact that katy can't sing! - DaWyteNight
She has many powerful and inspiring songs.
In my opinion Katy Perry doesn't sing well when she is live some of her songs are catchy but I don't like what she does with her voice sometimes and I think Ann Wilson has a way more powerful voice.V 24 Comments
She was and will always be the Queen
What?! Amy is the best fusion of jazz, soul and blues. Why in the world is she this far back on the list
She is an will always be one of the greatest voice of all time she may not have had a large octave but she has an amazing voice
She had a very powerful voiceV 6 Comments
Florence doesn't get enough credit.
Florence Welch has a nice strong chest voice and still maintains a light upper register. Though sometimes when she sings live she does not sing her high studio notes. That may be a performance choice. When Florence sings in live settings, her head voice and belts can sound a little uncontrolled due to her expressive singing style. But still, I love her voice and she is my favourite singer.
Other than having a very strong voice, she includes amazing expression with her songs that makes them astonishing.
Listen to No light, No light. This woman can hit a high note whenever she wants.V 13 Comments
She's always been a member of a metal band, so doesn't put out material under her own name. If she was a solo artist, she would be much more well-known. Besides the versatile powerhouse voice, she is a natural at projecting emotion and drawing in the audience. Incredible stage presence.
Floor's voice - is my air! I can't live a day without hearing her songs. So beatufull, so pure and powerful.
This is obviously a joke Perry Edwards (Most powerful female singer) what? Floor is in a different league to all the rest in this list.
THE most versatile vocalist. Just not so well known because she is not a mainstream singer. She can really sing everything, from opera to grunting and in the most passionate way possible. She is peerless, a phenomenon, a true force of nature.V 4 Comments
There are no words to describe her vocal talent and ability to sustain its power through such highly energetic and beyond physically taxing performances! Couple this with the raw emotion that flows through her more personal lyrics and you have one truly blessed artist. (in my opinion)
Always an underdog which I love. There are at least four artists mentioned in the top ten that can't compare to Pinks voice. Live she is so powerful and gutsy! Never need an auto tune! Two rated above her airways need that device. I love the rasp! She's one of a kind in writing, song and performance.
Pink is my number one favorite singer of all! I'm in love with her voice! Should be top 2 or 3 next to Mariah Carey as number 1 in 'this list'. But I listen to Pink more than any singer! Plus her style is so uniquely cool!
Amazing vocal range. No autotune bull. All songs are written by herself. A truly inspirational woman that can make anyone support her cause simply though song.V 18 Comments
Scherzinger is classified as a lyric coloratura soprano with a three octave vocal range and a whistle register that stretches up to a G#6. Scherzinger is known for her strong soprano vocals and conviction to convey emotion in her tracks. Throughout Scherzinger's career, her vocal range and music has been compared to Kelly Clarkson, Leona Lewis, Britney Spears, Sugababes, Rihanna, and Beyoncé Knowles. Scherzinger is also a classically trained opera musician.
Definitely should be higher than Katy Perry! - DaWyteNight
Best singer of our generation and in the pop industry
Why the hell is she below katy perry! - NicoleJohnnyLutherBrianFanV 1 Comment
NO WAY IS SHE 80 on this list! She carries a lot more power in her voice than some artists up there!
Need no words! A Powerhouse!
Yeah, 70's or 80's is about right for Tina.
She's truly the singer with a powerful voice indeed, regine can go a b5 note using her chest voice and can sustain a 15 sec. Note live. She's truly the best indeed, hence regine is owning a good heart, we love you regine and may god bless you
Definitely she is the best singer in the Philippines not only here but also in Hollywood. If only in the Philippines no one can defeat her as a singer and no one can can take her place as Asia's Songbird. - lalainesandoval
Regine is a legend, an inspiration to every singers of this generation. Her vocal prowess is just one of many reasons. Add to that the kind attitude that she possess.
She had her time and I know she's happy being a mother but still she needs more songs for her fans all over the world.V 30 Comments
Unappreciated voice great range contraltos
She is an amazing singer one of the most powerful voices ever how she kept the constant belting in dreamgirls is just amazing she has some talent and she knows how to keep in tone she is one amazing singer just wow
"And I am telling you" is one of the best songs I have EVER heard! Honestly never in my life have I heard a voice as amazing as her. She should be on number 1!
She has got the most powerful voice ever she should be number 1 but she's not please vote fir her and leave sten to her song spotlight
Her voice in dream girls was absolutely breathe takingV 4 Comments
She should have been number 1 - Breadwinnersislofe
Her recording and stage crews do use the most powerful auto-tune equipment.
I love her
"Ariana Grande has a lot to give. Her voice is strong, well controlled, and agile. Power is the most wonderful thing on her voice; and by power I mean her soul when she sing. I think her voice has no limits. Like I said she has a lot to give unpredictably. She's full of surprises! Go hit that G#6 in yo car Ari *wink. She deserves a spot from the top 10."V 69 Comments
Not number one but she has unique tone with powerful voice. Should be in top ten.
She has really powerful voice and can sing different genre but I prefer her low tone. It's so catchy...
Miley should on the top 10 of this list. Please go search her versions of "Jolene" or "Baby I'm gonna leave you".
Great voice, can hit the high notes and low notes. I love her raspy voice.V 2 Comments
Search for 'If Only You Knew' or 'My Love, Sweet Love' to see why she should be #1
I can't believe she wasn't on this list last time I checked
Yes, she should definitely be on this list.
Patti is Number one I guess people don't know good singingV 2 Comments
Louisa is very talented. She has a very powerful voice. I think she should top the list.
Should be number ONE. Watch her videos over the years and you'll see why. It Had To Be You. Somewhere. My Man. Just to name a few. No one can sing like she does and no one ever will. Simply the best at interpreting and putting emotion into songs. Listen to "Just a Piece of Sky" or Since I Fell For You -- you'll see why she is so much better than these other singers.
Will the rest of these vocalists be able to STILL HAVE "IT" through a few more decades like Barbra? I doubt it! She is Top Ten All Time!
Streisand is it. The power, the emotion, the control she has it in spades. Extraordinary vocal talent.
Barbra Streisand is a living legend with one of the most beautiful and stronger singing voices ever. she should be in the top 10.V 7 Comments
Overlooked, But one of the best.
So powerful in chandelier! Her is so underrated.
Love her cracks
I personally love Sia's voice. I think that her range is beautiful. I feel like she has a very diverse voice. In the new version of Annie (2014), she sang very well. Sia also wrote most of the new material that went into that movie, proving she can write as well. Titanium and Chandelier are great examples of her talent as well. Why isn't she higher up on this list? I was utterly shocked when I saw how low she was on the list!V 19 Comments
She's an angel, her voice is divine…
She has an amazing, versatile, dark and light voice. She hits a C6 in Cola and her longest note live is of 28 seconds when she sang a cover of nirvana's heart shared box.
Her voice can just change, it's so amazing how she uses this in her song Off to the Races, just look at the variation from the chorus to the verses.
YES she is a good singer and a great public figure.V 1 Comment
She got what it takes in music industry with her unique voice. I love every single song she sing..
One and only
Jesy Nelson is an amazing vocalist all around. Not only is her voice unique and different, but she also offers a wide range of other talents. Such as beat boxing, harmonizing, and dancing. One thing to say for sure about her is that, she has as beautiful a personality as voice.
Jesy's voice is one in a million. Her low vibrato is insane & so infectious, it gives me goosebumps! On the salute tour Jesy did a high note in towers, it was so beautiful, the whole arena went silent & then went crazy screaming & applauding! If that wasn't enough, Jesy also beatboxes, which is fully shown off in Going Nowhere!
Strong, powerful, Jesy deserves a spot in the Top 10 most definitely. All of these girls do, but Jesy has one of the most unique voices in this group of ladies. It is emotional, able to bring anyone to tears, and yet it is also extremely strong. During live performances and performances without auto tune, it truly shows her talents and what she is capable of in her group.
One fourth of the girl band Little Mix, Jesy's voice does stick out slightly from the others, even if she tries to blend into the other girls' voices. Raspy, almost hoarse even, yet a beautiful, standout and overall gorgeous timbre, tone and mood in her voice. She can get overshadowed, but she does perfect on harmonies.V 62 Comments
Umm sorta...kinda...in some ways...
72th? She must have been 7th or something like that!
Amazing voice, great songs from Nightwish and Solo career. An all over wonderous woman. A true contender.
Perfect pitch. never sang a wrong note in her life
Oh my lord... a beautiful voice she had: Low but with very powerful, soulful tones. A perfect voice she had for jazz
What on earth is Pat doing this far down on this list? She's 63 and still touring and can still belt out notes that are authentic and pure. Classically trained she is one of the few real singers that showed what could be done if the passion was there. Listen to her voice. Sure, a lot of people can sing other peoples songs but few attempt Benatars because they don't have the pipes or the conviction to pull them off. This woman can sing any genre and she makes it sound easy. Enough said.
This lady has the BEST songs EVER WRITTEN and the BEST voice EVER she totally should be on top
What a joke Pat Benatar is top 5 at least... nobody heard her sing or what! listen to shadows of the night then tell me why she's not even in top 40... and if that's not enough read the next comment down, so nicely put Enough said!
Jade is my idol and I have no clue how she is so far down the list, further down than Jesy and Perrie!
Jade's voice is so beautiful & magical. Little mix wouldn't be the same without Jade & her sassy voice! I love when she would mess about with the last note in Word up on the neon lights tour, it was amazing & funny at the same time!
Actually offended she isn't right at the top! If you watch any recent video (or even not that recent) then you will see just how powerful and flawless her voice is! Yes she can have a lovely soft voice but she can also belt a big note and do it perfectly!
Jade has one of the most perfect voices I've ever heard. She always sings the notes in a different way and it's absolutely amazing. She deserves to be right up at the top with Perrie, and so do the other members of Little Mix. Her voice is so perfect, it's sassy, and she hits all of her notes perfectly. Little Mix wouldn't be the same without her. She's extremely kind and always looks out for others and is just an amazing person in general.V 56 Comments
Hayley's vocal range is absolutely crazy. I think the only reason she's not at the top is the fact she not as well known as the others. Anyway she can hit really high and also low notes. It's a shame people like Demi Lavoto are above Hayley just because she doesn't have as much exposure.
Easily the best on this list. By far.
She can put so much emotion in her voice and she sings great live as well.
Best female pop punk singer of our generation.V 6 Comments
Ten Songs/Productions, a music publishing company in Sweden, invited Charice to a demo-recording after producers saw her videos. She recorded seven songs " six covers and an original song entitled "Amazing". She was then invited to the South Korean talent show Star King on its October 13, 2007 edition, she sang "And I Am Telling You" and a duet of "A Whole New World" with Kyuhyun, from Super Junior.
Lots of power in this young adult's voice! She is to be commended for her accomplishments as a young artist; who is internationally renowned as one of the very best singers in the world; and who is entertaining the world with her tremendous talent.
CHARICE IS THE BEST ever singer she can now belt A6 wow for me that's amazing as thin as the radio, one thing more is she never experience voice cracking well because her voice is organize...the best singer ever! CHARICE! #1
Well when it comes to High Vocal Range capability no doubt that charice should be on top of this list declared as the Most Talented performer of the world. She effortlessly belts even the songs of Whitney and Mariah.V 11 Comments
She is famous for possessing a vocal range of over 3 octaves and singing in the whistle register. She sings in many languages including English, Spanish, French, Latin, German, Italian, Russian, Hindi, Mandarin Chinese and Japanese. She is often credited as the creator of this genre and remains among the most prominent performers, with worldwide sales of more than 30 million records and 2 million DVDs, establishing herself as the world's best-selling soprano of all time.
To be considered a crossover artist by the opera purists carries a lot of weight. All the better to introduce mainstream music into a higher art form. She's one of a kind!
She has an ethereal sound, truly, the voice of an Angel.
Her best concert was in Vienna
So powerful my dad's song miss him so much
A feminine beauty in her voice with a richness that is not matched by any female singer. Pure joy to listen to.
Anyone who appreciates Celine Dion go and listen "Power of love" from both of these singers and then start to appreciate Jennifer more. More power in her voice than Adele has and Adele has been said to have the most powerful voice in 21th century.
How on earth is Celine Dion way before Rush? Not even on her wildest dreams. Just listen the Power of Love both versions.V 17 Comments
She can pull every emotion out of a song and the listener with her singing abilities and she can hit those high notes! An amazing story teller and singer.
Perfect couplet with Anna-Frid's contralto (She should be in this list too). Agnetha could hold a note til the commercial break!
Great range and emotion, and incredibly pleasant to the ear.
The most beautiful sound I have ever heard...V 2 Comments
She has a very strong/powerful voice and superior vocal technique. A complete package-- rachelle ann with her good looks and exceptional talent deserves to be called the ultimate champion. She is simply one of the best singers in the Philippines today

She can do all genres with very unique rendetion!, a singer that sings from the heart truly perform with energy! Can hit super high notes, she can sustain note's.. With very good also in low notes...
No one can beat Rachelle Ann Go's powerful voice in her generation, she's my number one idol,
She can do lots of different kinds of genre... Like rock, rnb, operatic, pop, ballad and more.. When it comes to vocal technique, she is no doubt the best among all singers in the Philippines.V 16 Comments
