45 Pat Benatar Pat Benatar Patricia Mae Andrzejewski, known professionally by her stage name Pat Benatar, is an American singer, songwriter, and four time Grammy Award winner.

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.

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!

46 Carly Rae Jepsen Carly Rae Jepsen Carly Rae Jepsen is a Canadian singer and songwriter from Mission, British Columbia, and later based in Vancouver.
47 Kyla

There are many singers out there that you might identify as having a "powerful voice". Despite having a vocal range spanning more than 5 octaves, Kyla proves that true "power" in singing isn't just hitting high notes but singing with sincerity, clarity, and emotion. Kyla undoubtedly has one of the most UNIQUE voices of our time and continues to capture the hearts of artists worldwide.

When she off the stage you'll think she just an ordinary beautiful lady. But once the music starts to play and give her a microphone, you'll be shocked how beautiful her voice is.

She really deserve to be on this TOP 10 LIST!

My Vote Belongs to KYLA!

For me, Kyla is an exceptional singer. Her voice is very unique thus when you hear her sings you'll know that Kyla is the one singing. She also sings with all her heart.

She has the voice will spin you up and down. having that vocal acrobaticsand hitting both high notes and low notes at the same time, there is no way for you not to consider her as best singer in the world. Not to mention the fact that her husky and very soulful voice can pull out more than 5 octave voice.

48 Sarah Brightman Sarah Brightman

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.

49 Kelly Clarkson Kelly Clarkson

How is it possible Kelly's not even on the list!? She has one of the most powerful voices I've ever heard! One of the best live vocal performers I've ever heard! Demi Lovato would be very disappointed over her absence too I'm sure! (P! Nk should also be much higher on the list in my opinion)

Best modern singer. She pours her heart out in the songs she sings.

The best voice of the 2000s and 2010s! Have you heard her vocal range? It's awesome!

Kelly Clarkson is amazing like her voice is just wow

50 Hayley Williams Hayley Williams Hayley Nichole Williams is an American singer, songwriter and musician. She is best known as the lead vocalist, occasional keyboardist and primary songwriter of the American rock band Paramore.

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.

She should be way higher on the list

54 Yvonne Muentener - YVE

Awesome voice! This lady is in my opinion the hottest rockstar ever known!

If you think you have a powerful voice then try to sing her songs on karaoke shows. She has the most powerful voice I've ever heard and I've got an immense music collection in a radio station.

This powerful dynamic great voice is hard to believe especially if it comes from a delicate pretty woman like Yve. This Swiss woman is incredible!

The most compelling voice ever.

55 Shreya Ghoshal Shreya Ghoshal Shreya Ghoshal is an Indian playback singer. She has received four National Film Awards, six Filmfare Awards and eight Filmfare Awards South to date.

Shreya ghoshal has the best voice ever. Her voice touches your soul. Her melody moves your body. Just hear some of her sad songs. No other artist has such a relax soft honey voice

She's only under-rated because she's Indian. She can beat some of these people here very easily. And I love them too!

I don't wanna compare Shreya with other singer (enlisted here), but I can say that she is one of the marvelous singer of all time in India.

Shreya has an amazing vocal range. In Bhor Bhaye from Delhi 6, she reached an amazingly high pitch which I think none of the above mentioned singers can reach. I'm not saying they're not good singers, I myself am a big fan of all of them, but in terms of versatility and vocal range, Shreya wins it hands down.

60 Tori Kelly Tori Kelly Victoria Loren "Tori" Kelly is an American singer, songwriter and record producer who slowly gained recognition after starting to post videos on YouTube at the age of 14. When she was 16, Kelly auditioned for the singing competition television series American Idol.

This voice is refreshingly pure, crystal clear and extremely versatile. Tori Kelly as a huge range, and a soothing, soulful stylistic. Her runs and riffs are intricate and impeccably flawless... She definitely has a permanent spot in my best vocals on the planet top ten. #Toraay (oh and not to mention she is gorgeous and has a contagious personality, as do many of the singers on this list)

She should be way higher on this list! Her vocals are flawless and she is definitely one of the most talented singers of this generation! She can do so much with her voice, she is amazing!

She's amazing, she hits notes effortlessly. It's amazing. Watch for her album this spring. You won't regret it

She should be higher up this list. Her vocal range is amazing, and so are her runs and riffs.
