241 Annie Haslam

Few people on this list could compare to her. Perhaps Celine Dion and Julie Andrews are somewhat better but that would be it. Most of the rest of these people are inferior singers to Annie.

Renaissance were one of the best bands of the 70s, I'm still a big fan now, Annie has just a beautiful sharp voice I love her.

How could
anyone overlook her bittersweet, crystal clear, five and a half octave voice?... And the former lead singer from the British classic rock band, Renaissance?

242 Carly Simon

There's simply noone who's voice is so original, who wrote her songs AND performed them. She's completely distinctive and INIMATABLE! Her voice and songs are timeless. RARE these days

You can tell the voters on this list are mostly young. Carly Simon has always been severely underrated, but it doesn't take away from an awesome career.

536? Wow. After a career like hers? No, she's probably not top ten but I would say top hundred at the very least. To have her way down here is inexcusable.

I'd put her somewhere between 37th and 41st place.

The BEST VOICE! Pure as crystal. The BEST SINGER ever! She's apt to any genre and style from metal to pop, and always sounds natural.

Who is she?

246 Maria Bethânia

One great singer of the Brazil

247 Hayley Mary
248 Jenn Johnson
249 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.

The most talented person in the world

250 Regine Velasquez Regine Velasquez Regine Velasquez-Alcasid, dubbed as the Asia's Songbird is a Filipina recording artist, host, producer, philanthropist, commercial endorser, actress, and an Asian pop culture icon. She is widely known for possessing an extensive vocal range.

One can say so much about a singer... Honestly most of the singers nominated for this list is not new to me.. Its true that this lady (incredible singer) is not known to the most people who are not from Asia and surely not from Philippines but I can totally bet you with my soul that this woman can definitely sing, yes true she don't have the fame like mariah carey, celine dion, whitney houston in Hollywood but boy oh boy! Her stature in the Philippines is almost and even greater than them.. Surely for you to believe, try to listen when she sings... It totally amazing... I heard mariah, celine and whitney sing live in a concert but this woman can definitely sing better... I'm not a die hard fan but I can definitely say a this woman from the Philippines, this regine velasquez is one excellent singer...

REGINE really sings from her heart every time she sings is simply just like SUPERB! When I first hear her song "kaylangan koy ikaw" I was really blown away. She is really ...more

Regine Velasquez nicknamed Asia's Songbird...is undoubtedly the most successful Filipino singer of all time. Velasquez's belting voice is noted for its vocal range, power, and technical ability. She received critical acclaim and commercial success for her singing and acting endeavors. Following her success in the Asia Pacific Song Festival, a series of records released in the region consolidated her position as one of Asia's top-selling performers, yielding several multi-platinum certifications. Initially marketed as a pop music singer, she later distanced herself from the genre, developing a more sultry and sophisticated image.

Yeah, I agree that she can be also in top 1, she was a great singer you can check this on you tube, she can sing anything also she can beat more than celine dion's songs, mariah and whitney or any songs. until now she can beat it again and again. she is the Asia's songbird and Philippines queen

251 Tracy Chapman Tracy Chapman Tracy Chapman is an American singer-songwriter, known for her hits "Fast Car" and "Give Me One Reason", along with other singles "Talkin' 'bout a Revolution", "Baby Can I Hold You", "Crossroads", "New Beginning" and "Telling Stories".

This woman is really talented and is severely underrated way down here. "Fast Car" is one of the best songs ever written.

Her voice is magic, she plays a wide range of instruments, she writes her own songs, what more..?

Tracy is unique with a unique blend of music and instruments. Should be in top 20

Hands down should be top ten is probably my #2

Why is she so low? Shes better the any of those pop singers in this list! Gosh what crap do people like these days? Angela is worth listening to!

Maybe I missed her on this long list, but, she should definitely be up there w/the biggies

Great voice. Not always crazy about her arrangements, but she should be way higher.

Hey, good voice. What can I say?

I don't understand why she's so low on this list- she's GREAT!

254 Emmylou Harris

This lady has the purest, clearest and probably the most entriging sound out there today and for the last 45 years. Emmylou along with dolly parton, linda ronstadt, and judith durham deserve to be in the top ten. You need to look closer at all their accomplishments and overall sales.

...especially duets with Gram Parsons

256 Patti Smith Patti Smith Patricia Lee "Patti" Smith is an American singer-songwriter, poet, and visual artist who became a highly influential component of the New York City punk rock movement with her 1975 debut album Horses.
257 Brandy Brandy

She is one of the most talented R&B singers that I know...she should be at least in the top 50. She was one of the few young ladies in the early 90's whose sound changed R&B forever.

Brandy is incomparable. Her harmonies and vocal improvisation skills are second to none. The one thing you'll notice when you read the liner notes on her CDs is she very rarely uses background singers. She simply doesn't need them because her ability to harmonize. She is one of the most underrated if not the most underrated female singer in the past 25 years.

Brandy should come in second place after whitney houston.
Her voice is exceptional and gosh she surely does know how to use it. Plus she has excellent ears for music and meaninful music. She is a good role model, at least she doesn't go about flaunting her butt.

259 Fantasia Barrino

Fantasia is definitely one of the top 25 female "sangers" of all time. She has one of the most powerful voices that we have heard in a long time. When she did the salute to Patti Labelle live; that just separated her from the rest of the pack right then and there. She just can flat out sang...

the world no nothing about singing if fantasia is not announce one of greatest singers

Sings from the heart, and that which comes from the heart reaches the heart!
