262 Mama Cass Elliot

One of the best voices ever, man or women. Could do pretty harmonies with mamas and papas, or blow the doors off the place. Voice never broke even the slightest. If she was 80 lbs lighter and did modern videos she would be in the top 2 or 3. Anyone not old enough to remember her go back and listen. Check out Grace Slick while your at it. Listen to how people sang without computers helping.

If she was in this era she would be one of the top voices hands down.

Beautiful voice especially on Dream a little dream, I can't believe she way under people like Ke$ha

Pretty sad to see Mama Cass all the way down here. Her voice is pure bliss.

Her voice can create wonderful art works from any kind of average compositions. Very inspiring. I really envy people who may work with her and I'm feeling 'at home' when listening to her beautiful and impressive voice. She has a key to my soul, no matter what style of music she's doing now or tomorrow...

Shes a substantiation of beauty and love, both her voice and her heart. I don't know better singer from her...

She is someone who touches you with not only her voice, but also with her personality. She sings metal, classic, rock, even does theater.

She is wonderful... Voice excellent... Very nice... Pretty... Is amazing..

Who is she?

267 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.

She is amazing and I could listen to her all day

270 Bonnie Tyler Bonnie Tyler Bonnie Tyler is a Welsh singer. She is known for her distinctive husky voice, resulting from an operation to remove vocal nodules in the mid-1970s.

Bonnie Tyler is simply the best singer of the world. His hoarse voice enchants and invades my mind and my heart, I need to hear your voice as I need air to live. Bonnie is a true gift from God to me. I love Bonnie Tyler forever.

So much power. So much emotion. A total eclipse of the heart. Honestly, it's a heartache if she isn't named one of the best ever

Last but not least bonnie tyler. Awesome power and vocals from the husky singer. Total eclipse of the heart. Was her biggest hit. Great voice.

Seriously? Rank 291? "Total Eclipse of the Heart" tops all those songs by Taylor Swift or whatever.

271 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?

278 Lata Mangeshkar Lata Mangeshkar

she's the best ever singer and the voice world has ever had... the indian better called as the nightingale is a personality who's gone way beyond words of accolades, praises and appreciation... very unfortunate are those who did not get to hear songs sung by her... one who has made us all proud... those who know a bit about AR Rehman and consider Jai Ho as a great song... ask Rehman about Lata Ji... or just google her someday and will know... we indians worship her as she is... the best female singer of all time... right now at 170... lol... getting ready to get to top 10... - underhill

She is the Female Goddess of True heart-full Singing... I wish more people around the world may be blessed by listening her Angel Voice... She deserves to be ranked in top 10 list NO DOUBT...

No female in the world has sung as much as song like her,
Not even closer...
Did any one of the these top listed women has 30000 song in 20 languages?

She is amazing
She must be in top 10.NO DOUBT EVER.
No one can even copy her.
Her voice is wonderful. Everyone feels proud for listening her voice. No words for her voice.

279 Bianca Ryan

Bianca has the power, range, control, versatility and most importantly the heart and soul that makes her a truly brilliant vocalist. Only 11 when she won America's got Talent,she is even more impressive today at 14. She is very kind, generous and humble as well. She certainly deserves to be in the top 10 best female singers. - r5lark

Bianca has been recognised as one of the most talented vocalists in the world, by Quincy Jones, Simon Cowell, David Foster, Diane Warren, Walter Afanasieff and many others.
The last two have written songs for her. Her stunning ability is
recognized the world over. - r5lark

Bianca Ryan really inspired me to sing! I'm 11 and I went to one of her concerts and she told me to always believe in myself and really encouraged me to follow my dreams and I think she is the best singer in the world but not only is she a singer, I think of her as a real person and not just a celebrity so I'm voting for her! I LOVE YOU BANCA RYAN! - musicismylife334
