The Contenders: Page 4

61 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

Just watched her perform on the Grammys, amazing voice.

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.

One of the best ever!

Camila Cabello is the best singer ever. Both with Fifth Harmony and as solo. I assure you her upcoming album is gonna get a Grammy.

Most annoying voice ever. Why is she even on this list?

Are you kidding me?

100 percent auto-tune.

Definitely the best singer in Spanish for the past twenty years, and probably one of the best voices in the world today, besides being incredibly versatile and always put on a show on stage.

Probably one of the most wondrous voices of the world.

I have heard this woman sing and she is absolutely incredible.

She is the best voice. More people need meet her and listen her beautiful voice.

65 Dinah Jane

An amazing Light Lyric mezzo-soprano who can sing lyric alto with an amazing range and tone, I'm seriously shocked she is so far down the list

Dinah has the strongest vocals in Fifth Harmony along with Lauren, I'm surprised they don't give her as many parts as she should deserve with her voice.

Someone really felt the need to push Perrie Edwards down in order to lift Dinah's ability. Sad.

Just wait until her voice reach it's full potential. Y'all will be blown away.

66 Laura Branigan Laura Branigan Laura Ann Branigan was an American singer, songwriter, and actress known for her powerful, husky alto singing voice which spanned four octaves.

The way she sings is incredible. She sings from the heart with conviction and with heart and soul. Vary few artists can do that. If you compare Celine Dion, Kate Bush and Laura Branigan singing POWER OF LOVE, tHERE IS NO COMPARISON. LAURA Branigan sings it the BEST hands done. It is completely full of rich and pure and clear vocals than any of them.

Laura had a great voice. I think people forget about her. She could, and liked to really belt them out. She had a pretty voice when simply singing nice.

Laura's voice is so powerful, more than many of the current singers. I heard she had a voice of five octaves

Such a great range and rated this low

67 Chaka Khan Chaka Khan Chaka Khan is an American singer-songwriter whose career has spanned four decades, beginning in the 1970s as the frontwoman and focal point of the funk band Rufus.

Chaka Khan has a very very rare voice. She stands alone compared to others. No other singer has the strength of this woman's voice. Where the other's voices thin out and have to opt to go into a falsetto voice, Miss Khan is the exact opposite. She is a total gut singer who can pull it all up. Her vocal range is incalculable. She can sing 1st soprano, 2nd soprano, alto, tenor, bass, she can do it all. Writer Steve Ivory once said that Chaka sings as though she has 7 lungs. He also said there is no other male or female singer who can come on with such awesome force as Chaka also saying that she just opens her mouth and it just comes out. I must say that I have to agree.

Chaka is 60 years old but she still has a very powerful voice and she's just like Aretha Franklin. Chaka is one of my favorite singers.

She should've been ranked higher...bad ass voice even on her current age! She just opens her mouth and the sound comes out!

Tops them all

69 Leona Lewis Leona Lewis Leona Louise Lewis is a British singer, songwriter and animal welfare campaigner. She was born and raised in the London Borough of Islington, London, England where she attended the BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology.

I can't believe Leona Lewis (Bleeding Love British singer) is not even in the top 100! She is classified next to Mariah, Whitney, Celine Dion etc. She has an amazing vocal range and power. Her first debute single off her album "spirit" was the best-selling single of 2008.

Just watch Leona's X Factor songs like Summertime, All By Myself, Bridge Over Troubled Water. You'll understand whati said

76 Lea Salonga

I agree she should be in the top 10. She has an exquisite voice that enchants and mesmerises and you want to hear it again & again. She may not be as well known as some other artists for eg Celine Dion as she was not aggressive with her career marketing like planning releases of albums every 6 months or more frequently in multiple languages and planning world tours with a mega number of concerts ( I love Celine too by the way but just citing as a comparison as it has how well known a singer is has a lot to do with ambition as well, not just talent, Rather Lea does what she enjoys - singing be it musicals or concerts and coaching.

Lea Salonga must be on top 3 because shes only a child when shes started to sing and she can whistle too with vibrato and shes a soprano she can sing all the broadway songs She is Amazing she can manage her voice

This is clearly a simple popularity vote, and not really a comparison of vocal talent.

She should be in top one. She has the most powerful voice.

78 Nita Blanc

Netherlands has received a gifted young girl. This country is experiencing accomplishments which would be unheard merely decades ago. Nita as of March 22, is rated
16 "Best Child Singers in the World;" rated 79 "Singers With The Most Powerful Voice in the World, " which includes artists who are no longer with us; yet her career is yet in the "budding stage! " She has been described as having a "clear and crisp voice;" and
at her tender age, some listeners are surprized she has not gone professional. The "Sky is the Limit" for this young prodigy.

Take a listen to "Grenade" cover and yes, she knows how to end songs! Most artists choose to "fade" the endings they just can't "lock" the last note. You need power for termination!

Nita is developing excellent singing skills, adding to the tremendous vocal power with which she is endowed. The Top Tens - lists Nita in various categories.

Great projection for such a young artist; potentially all-time top ten material; currently in the top ten for females alive.

79 Lzzy Hale Lzzy Hale Elizabeth Mae "Lzzy" Hale is an American singer, songwriter, and musician. She is best known as the lead singer and rhythm guitarist of the American hard rock band Halestorm, which she co-founded in 1997.

Great singer with power that could stand up against anyone. Her live stuff is better than the recordings. Live is where her power really comes thru.

I can't believe that people put demi lovato in top ten and Lzzy Hale here...
How come? Lzzy isn't just a singer... Her voice and performance together are WONDERFUL!
People please check it out
And then see who is better

She can hit notes like nobody's business!

Power at its best,
