Never got her due. This woman was one of the greatest artist of all time. Her lyrics alone went over most peoples heads. The industry, however never forgave her for bring down Goliath.

Never got enough publicity - has the most beautiful voice - Listen to "If I were a Bell" or the duet with Rick James, "Fire & Desire"-no comparison!

Tenna may be gone. (but her talents will always live on). she was a very "Talent" singer and dancer. if anyone could cheer you. up she was the one. with someone. Singing with her or not. you had a good show.

184 Monica Arnold

Everyone knows she should be in the top 25.......she have great voice...

185 Bessie Smith

The first and the greatest - her voice, her life, everything - if you don't know her, check her out - awesome

Since we are talking about OF ALL TIME, I was shocked to find Bessie Smith way down at number 188!

WAY too many young people voting for "of all time" whose memories don't go back very far...

186 Lea Salonga

Amazing singer from Miss Saigon and Les Miserables. Also sang in Aladdin. - danajs24

If you heard her in Les Miserables, you'd understand why she should be near the top of the list!

Do yourself a favor and Google for "Lea Salonga Miss Saigon Audition". One of the most stunningly perfect things ever filmed.

Finally! A Broadway person on this list!

188 Sandy Denny

I suppose the singer that you choose can only come from the genres of music that you like and that you are old enough or experimental enough to have come across. Most of the above are recent, sexy popular singers. On that basis a folk-rock-ballad singer who died so terribly young in 1978 won't get many votes. Funny, because I grew up thinking that everyone knew that Sandy Denny had one of the most respected voices in music. She guested with Led Zep on "Battle of Ever More", which is excellent but I should try searching for "She moves through the fair" or "Milk and Honey' on youtube for Sandy at her best.

Sandy was one of the very best, #736 is an insult but I guess that today it is only people of a certain age who knew of her work. Up to us oldies to spread the word

Sorry folks, but this voice, expression and meaning is of course Number One of this whole (wrong and strange) list...

#730 is an absolute gobsmack for all those who moved through the fair with voice. Few have the voice of an Angel. Alexandra Elene MacLean "Sandy" Denny was one who surely had the voice of an Angel. There would be (maybe) half a dozen on this whole list. Sandy Denny is one of them. The rest you can keep.

190 Hayley Westenra

Why hayley is not on this list defeats me. Stunning range, immaculate control and no little power, plus perfect pitch. A pure clear spiritual voice a bit like a boy soprano, but with feminine warmth as well. And still only 20 years old! Amazing

Hayley has one the most beautiful pristine voices all all time. She should definitely be amongst the top ten.

Hayley is A Voice that resonates the sounds of Heaven. Her work is full of variety, Class, and fun. She has already established herself as a voice that touches the human soul in many area's. I look forward to the amazing works in her future that have yet to astound us all!

I was surprised to find her name like this. She is so much more better than the other new singers. Of course Whitney is the best for me. But Hayley deserves a better rank than this.

What! First, her profile isn't showing, next she's 191th place! Her voice is really unique! I know she stopped singing or something but she deserves to be higher! She's probably above Sabrina Carpenter.

193 Coco Jones

What why is she even on the list of BEST voices. Ugh

194 Karine Polwart
195 Dannii Minogue Dannii Minogue Danielle Jane "Dannii" Minogue is an Australian singer-songwriter, talent competition judge, actress, television and radio personality, and fashion designer.

Good singer but no where good or famous as her sister.

196 Daya Daya Grace Martine Tandon, professionally known as Daya, is an American singer, songwriter, and record producer from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
197 K. S. Chithra

superb playback singer in india,...
those rare individuals that capture your heart and senses before you even realize it. Her range is incredible and her personality cancels everyone else out!
proud that she is in the list

Chithra is the best female singer that I have ever heard. She manages to put all the technical things into singing yet draw so much emotion out of a song. Many female artists are great in the sense that they have a huge vocal range and are able to sing everything in tune, but a truly great singer is someone who is able to make the audience feel what the song is about, at the same time - clinten

K. S. Chithra should be in No. 1
She rocks
She sings
she wins

She is the number 1 complete singer in the world

198 Emma Bunton Emma Bunton

Good voice but much preferred her in the group the spice girls. Her character as baby spice was cute, interesting and fun.

199 Fiona Apple Fiona Apple

Fiona Apple's music and lyrics are soul touching. She is very talented. - sadeyes

I'm so Dissapointed... She is so good and inspirational with all of her music! She gave us all she could in the past years with her best voice... Wich is now a raunchy voice and still good with singing!
She should be at least in the Top 10

Come on you guys... This isn't about the artists who's singing now... Its's about the artists who's been still better and have the rare voice -_- JUST SAYING

200 Julie Andrews Julie Andrews Dame Julia "Julie" Elizabeth Andrews is an English film and stage actress, singer, author, theatre director and dancer.

Surely she should be in the top five if not number 1!
Her vocal ability is phenomenal, the purity and clarity are amazing, her Strength and poise wonderful and fully controlled, her vocal "gymnastics"!, she always sounds amazing and she sings with feeling and emotion. She is Truly amazing!

Julie Andrews is by far the best female singer of all time in my opinion! She could hit four octave notes at the age of ten, she is the youngest person ever asked to sing before the queen and her voice holds pure class and beauty none of the above are anywhere near as good as Julie Andrews in my opinion.

Seriously. Her voice is crystal clear. Try listening to some of her songs - I'd recommend something from The Sound of Music. She is just phenomenal. Surprised she's not in the list at all.

She's such a legend I don't know why she's so far back in the list though. Her career has been very interesting and in the sound of music well what can you say!
