261 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

263 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.
264 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.

265 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!

267 Mireille Mathieu

Unique, magic voice, very melodious songs, many international hits sound better in her version

Brilliant, though sometimes harsh voice, especially for French natives' ears. Too many stupid songs and covers.

Beautiful voice, skilled singer

Underrated big star of Francophone music

268 Assala Nasri Assala Nasri Assala is a Syrian musical artist that is known for her strong vocal abilities and powerhouse performances. Assala was born in Damascus, Syria.

What a great singer Wallah she is amazing such as her songs like aktar she should be on and I would like to see more Arabic singers on this list

She is amazing Singer.She famous Singer into southeast Asia.wow... I heard his song. She is Singer from middle east Heaven.!.With beautiful face like a nymphs.

269 Lita Ford Lita Ford Lita Rossana Ford is an English-born American rock guitarist, vocalist and songwriter, who was the lead guitarist for The Runaways in the late 1970s, an all-female rock band formed by Joan Jett and Sandy West. In the 1980s Lita Ford embarked on a solo career.

Come on! Lita Ford has got to be higher than this! A lot higher! She is a rock singer! A great one! And she is ranked #396 behind a bunch of pop singers that sound like dying cats! It's an outrage! - Shake_n_Bake13

Are you kidding me? This far down. Lita Ford, along with Cherie Currie and Joan Jett, pioneered the all girl rock bands. They did it before the GoGos, The Bangles, and others. The Runaways were an awesome band. So Lita Ford and Joan Jett should be in the top 10.

I have a hard time choosing my favorite female singer, but I think Lita Ford takes the cake. #370?! You've got to be kidding.

270 Emily Osment Emily Osment

I love her because she sings powerful, with AWESOMNESS. SHES A ROCKSTAR

271 Chrissie Hynde

How is Chrissie Hynde lower on this list than the Disney/Nickelodeon singers? Clearly the people who compiled this do not know a lot about the history of music.

Seriously, one of the greatest singers / rock stars ever. The ignorance of the masses never ceases to astound me.

Awesome voice... Stands out... Should be higher on this list especially when talking about rock/punk. She rocks!

People need to learn about chrissie. One of the most beautiful voices ever.

272 Alka Yagnik Alka Yagnik

A singer who ruled Bollywood music from late 1980's and won the maximum Filmfar awards.3 decades of experience and ruled the industry for 2 decades.

275 Umm Kulthum Umm Kulthum Umm Kulthum was an internationally famous Egyptian singer, songwriter, and film actress active from the 1920s to the 1970s.
276 Mackenzie Ziegler Mackenzie Ziegler Mackenzie Ziegler is an American dancer, singer, actress and model. She is the younger sister of dancer and actress Maddie Ziegler and is best known for appearing for six years on Lifetime's reality dance show Dance Moms.

Her songs are great! The robotic autotune she uses that makes her sound like an oxidated robot really highlights her talent. And her ability to make hand motions and lipsync on musically totally inspires me Man she is the best. AH WHO AM I KIDDING THIS LIL BIACH can't SING FOR THE LIFE OF IT.

She is an amazing singer,but why is she 112? she should be higher

Oh, it's the robot girl? Yeah, her songs are like so great and very original. They are really meaningful and she HARDLY uses any autotune! Unlike all the other horrible singers!

No, she can't sing even if it would give her oxygen.

277 Sandy Denny Sandy Denny Alexandra Elene MacLean Denny, later known as Sandy Denny, was an English singer-songwriter who was lead singer for the folk rock band Fairport Convention.

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...

Sadly missed
