The quality of her voice is the best I've ever heard. Absolutely mesmerizing. - BobG

There is something in that voice like an extra dimension.
Something many are not used to hearing, and sometimes resist and deny.
Recommend: Surrender and rediscover your blunted emotions.

Her voice is wonderful!

In a class of her own. She will go down in history as one of the greats. She's not technically the best, neither was Callas, but once you are hooked by that voice that's all you want to hear.

2 Alison Krauss Alison Krauss

Alison is a one of a kind beauty. She has the voice of an Angel, along with the love and heart of one too. Her song's are true, soothing, loving, gentle, without the use of vocal props, or voice recordings.

One thing you know is she has a true band, one that love's and feels her music from her heart, and will follow her throughout their career.

Alison deserve the best, I can't wait to hear more music through time.

When Alison was created, all the angels got together, and decided that each and every one of them would give a little of themselves to Alison. When they were done, even God himself looked down, and said, "Now that's what I'm talking about! " Truly the best voice on the planet, and loaded with tons of other talents as well. A generous, beautiful, humble musician, singer, producer,and arranger, who learned a long time ago, that often less is more. Folks, it doesn't get any better than this. She's the real deal!

The voice of an angel, with the talent to play an instrument beautifully and to unselfishly collaborate with other artists of many different genres of music.

Most amazing angelic singer of all time. Not even close...

3 Linda Ronstadt Linda Ronstadt Linda Maria Ronstadt is an American popular music singer. She has earned 11 Grammy Awards, three American Music Awards, two Academy of Country Music awards, an Emmy Award, an ALMA Award, and numerous United States and internationally certified gold, platinum and multiplatinum albums.

Linda Ronstadt possessed the most extraordinary singing voice in American popular music, covering a wide range of styles including folk, country, rock, pop, American standards, Mexican, Latin, and jazz. Aside from her amazingly powerful, yet sweet voice, Linda's diversity puts her on top in my opinion. Who else could sing so many different styles of music and do them so successfully? Nobody before or after her, and there will never be another one like her. Linda Ronstadt is truly an angel from heaven on Earth and she is a national treasure. Even though sadly she can no longer sing, her accomplishments and contributions to the music world will forever be cherished for generations to come.

Simply the most glorious singing voice on the planet. A woman with a powerful, joyous, emotional instrument. Surrounded by the finest musicians and a songwriter's champion. No one else like her then or now.

No one comes close to Linda - a singer with a 40+ year career with 11 grammy awards, plus endless other awards and nominations.

With a wealth of material across pop, country, rock, classical, standards, Mexican canciones, Latin - from the early 1980 she reintroduced us to traditional American country music (with Dolly and Emmylou on TRIO), the songs of her fathers homeland in CANCIONES DE MI PADRE and the wonderful songs of the great American songbook in WHATS NEW, LUSH LIFE & FOR SENTIMENTAL REASONS - all off these recordings are multi million selling, grammy award winning records treasured, played and still appreciated more than 30 years later.

A voice strong enough to tackle the toughest rock song duetting with The Rolling Stones to performing on & off broadway in opera classics like THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE and LA BOHEME.

no one can beat her, no matter the result of this poll...

she is the best and always will be.

Linda is a vocal legend

Seriously, Taylor, katy, and ariana are higher than Aretha franklin? Like the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, wow.

So sad that an "entertainer" like Beyoncé who can not actually sing, but does dance up a storm, is ranked above Lady Soul.

5 Ariana Grande Ariana Grande Ariana Grande-Butera, known professionally as Ariana Grande, is an American singer and actress. She was born on June 26th 1993 in Boca Raton, Florida to Joan Grande and Edward Butera . She is best known for her role as Cat Valentine on the Nickelodeon sitcom, "Victorious" . She later become a singer more.

She has a 4 octave range and she can do whistle tones. I don't get why people think she can't sing, she is an amazing singer. You can not like her "higher pitched" voice but you can't say that she can't sing or is overrated cause she is a REALLY good singer.

Her donut-licking escapades should subtract a ton of points.

There is seriously nothing about being able to hit high notes, amazing singers can hit extremely low AND high notes... Like Beyonce.
Ariana Grande is just normal, nothing special, my 10 year old sister can sing like her

She my idol if u don't like her u be trippin

Bland, boring and a very dull vocally. Not unique at all.

Songwriting What. Oh yes she just at the center of humanity with her songwriting that it just touches everyone as a whole. So deep, Not!

Taylor is so awesome! She deserves to be on this list!

Litterally ALL of her songs are either about romance or breakups. Her voice is bland, I hate her - SeeU

She has a beautiful voice, and unlike most singers, can make her voice high and low accordingly. She is not much famous just because people nowadays want to listen to singers like Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift and Katy Perry.

So much better that Ariana Grande. Amy's voice is amazing understandable and beautiful.

Amy Lee is such a powerful and skilled vocalist. Her voice moves me and makes my jaw drop from the sheer awesomeness.

Amy is amazing and taylor is ahead? I thought people hated Taylor last time I heard of her. - spodermanfan1000

16 Stevie Nicks Stevie Nicks Stephanie Lynn "Stevie" Nicks is an American singer and songwriter, best known for her work with Fleetwood Mac and an extensive solo career, which collectively have produced over forty Top 50 hits and sold over 140 million albums.

Most unique and vocally different voice than any other on this list.

18 Sarah Brightman Sarah Brightman
19 Barbra Streisand Barbra Streisand Barbara Joan Streisand, known professionally as Barbra Streisand, is an American singer, songwriter, actress, and filmmaker.

Katy Perry is barely qualified to carry Barbra Streisand's luggage.

Barbara is first, then Jackie Evancho and Celine Dion followed by Ella.

Mariah, Aretha, Celine, Christina, and Barbra should be in the top 5. like seriously

Number 19? only Aretha Franklin I can see ranked ahead of Streisand. it should be 1.Aretha 2. Barbra 3. Ella 4. Whitney 5. Karen Carpenter

20 Christina Aguilera Christina Aguilera Christina María Aguilera is an American singer, songwriter, and record producer, best known for songs such as "Beautiful", "Genie In A Bottle", "Fighter", "Hurt", "Dirrty", "Your Body", "Lady Marmalade", "Reflection", "I Turn To You", "Come On Over Baby (All I Want Is You)" "What A Girl Wants" and more.

Some of the most powerful vocals I have ever heard, definitely deserves to be over Katy Perry. She truly has a lot of talent.

Christina should be top 10, easily. Must be the kids voting who don't know any history.

Kids who don't know history?
Yeah, that's why Barbra Streisand, Aretha Franklin and Sarah Brightman are ahead of Xtina.
A couple of years ago on a T.V. special, 65-year old Aretha blew Xtina and Mariah Carey off the stage at the same time.
Aretha clearly did it on purpose, because she had this evil little grin.
