83 Julie Anne San Jose Julie Anne San Jose

Shes multi talented, she can sing, belt! Dance, rap, play many instruments, act and so many more! Aka Asia's Pop Sweetheart

84 Lara Fabian

If you've never been to heaven, listen to Lara sing and you will be. She has the voice of an angel and every time she opens her mouth her whole heart comes out. Don't believe me? Listen to "Adagio", now that's a powerful voice right there.

Certainly should be a lot closer to Number 1 if not Number 1. Sensational!

85 Annie Lennox Annie Lennox

I believe the most powerful voice, and one that is conveyed calmly and without strain. Delivery is with very high precision. Contralto voice does not have as much range as some others, but then this survey is about power, not range.

4 octaves, total control, rich sound, consistently gorgeous music: Annie's my pick all the way!

Ice Cold Soul in a Nice Cold package

87 Sandi Patty

This list is insane! Sandi Patty is the number one most powerful female voice ever! Her voice would drown out the rest of the female artists on here! She had a 4 octave vocal range in her prime! And her voice today is still powerful and beautiful at age 61! Her rendition of The Star Spangled Banner is stunning and the best version of all time! She just Gets higher and higher as the song reaches its powerful climax! You sit there in awe! Just amazed at what a wonder her voice is! Her music will always be timeless as will her voice! She is forever #TheVoice

Christian music artist most powerful voice and range listen to "They Could not" I love her

Her voice is so amazing! A true gift!

With her operatic training...she can hit notes and explore a score like no one else. Just awesome! #theprayer #inhislove

88 Tamar Braxton

She is a vocal goddess with a 5 octave and a whistle register

Tamar is the best!


89 Annie Haslam

Why is Annie listed anywhere near Cher? She should top the list as she can outsing anyone at the top of this list! She has a five and a half octave range and her high notes are crystal clear and bittersweet! (Amazing voice for someone born with only one eardrum! ) I have heard Renaissance live hundreds of times and Annie's vocals are consistently perfect and even better live! Her other-worldly, angelic voice blows everyone away on this list.

Annie Haslam has to be one of the music incredible female singers that I have ever heard. If you have any doubts listen to 'Ashes are Burning'. Live at the Carnegie Hall is one of their best albums and her voice is just as clear as in the studio. She is a Coloratura Soprano and should definitely be in the top 5. Annie even puts Mariah Carey in the shade - which takes some doing.

Absolutely agree. No way that she should be anywhere but in the top 5. I saw Renaissance live twice and she can produce the same incredible vocal quality live as she did in the studio and without the aid of auto-tune. More than can be said for many of the names on this list!

It's also in the beauty of her vocal delivery,
so perfect

90 Sohyang

Despite being almost 40 years old, She has not suffered any vocal regression! Literally all her notes are supported and her high notes are just simply AMAZING! Her belts are extremely powerful! Instead of using falsetto, she uses her head voice to create a fuller and more powerful/beautiful sound. She's so good that when she covered "Lean On Me" by Michael Bolton that he gave her a standing ovation. She's South Korea's best vocalist, A title that she absolutely deserves because her technique and performances are on the same line as those from Mariah Carey, Whitney Housten and Celine Dion! She really is a vocal prodigy

She is comparable to the Divas. She is the 'Best Singer in this Generation'. This girl is a powerhouse. She has excellent technique. She can belt very high notes with power. She can sing softly or powerfully every notes. She's just perfect and Amazing. Her transition is flawless. Her chest register is awesome. Everything about her voice is Amazing. She deserve Number 1. If you don't believe me, check out ' Sohyang '. She's just the best singer in this generation.

Being this low on the list is ridiculous.

91 Joss Stone Joss Stone Joscelyn Eve Stoker, better known by her stage name Joss Stone, is a British singer, songwriter and actress.

This lady has an amazing voice and I was really surprised when I found out the first time I saw her, since just listenning I was thinking that was a baptist church singer and not a skinny blonde girl.

77? she's really good

Joss Stone definitely deserves to be on this list. 👍

Even before she was a star artists who met her knew she would be a star. A voice so big that when she sang backup for groups like the Ronettes and the Righteous Brothers she had to back away from the microphone so she would not overpower them.

Legend, her voice has never changed and is still as strong as it ever was.

Why is cher 87

98 Avril Lavigne Avril Lavigne

Avril is a punk rocker. Yes, I did hate 'Hello Kitty', but she's still awesome. She has a really powerful voice and personal songs (complicated, keep holding on). On top of that, she writes her own lyrics.

She belongs higher than Katy Perry who has no voice at all.

Has the most unique voices at all time.

I only like 2 of her songs

99 Sierra Boggess Sierra Boggess

Fantastic singer. She and Ramin Karimloo are the dream team!
