341 Elis Regina

Elis Regina (March 17, 1945 - January 19, 1982) was a singer of Brazilian popular music who achieved great success and recognition during her lifetime. She remains one of the most popular and beloved stars in Brazil.

Elis has everything, but I'd like to highlight her versatility and the way she could live all the song's emotion in her interpretation. Indeed, one of the best singers of all time.

Elis is one of the best singers ever. She has a voice that can be recognized so easily like Karen Carpenters. so beautiful

344 Harriet Wheeler

She has a voice that can tame the savage beast. Just a gorgeous sound, she certainly deserves to be rated higher than a whole lot of singers presently above her. There must be a lot of people (particularly Philipino's) flooding the place with votes.

Harriet Wheeler, without a doubt, has one of the most incredible voices EVER! She should easily be in the top 10 of all time in my opinion. It's just that 'The Sundays" were never a huge commercial success machine like a Whitney or Beyonce for examples. Her voice has always stirred my soul with every note she belted out with such range, power and command like no other. Truly a unique talent. We miss them so...

I still play all of my Sunday's cd's regularly. Harriet's voice is a real positive mood changer, she takes me to a beautiful and peaceful place every time I hear her sing.

Pure voice - great range - could have done so much more...

Such rich pure velvety tones to her a voice with a tremendous range that can carry you on a journey like no other.

One of the most amazing singers I have ever heard

348 Nico Nico

Vocalist for the Velvet Underground, then solo, Nico was iconic. Her deep velvet voice, resonant, her delivery dark, strong, sexual. Her musical style, solo, was very edgy, ahead of its time. It could certainly contend, if released today.

Love to Nico!

I am in shock! She should be at least in the top 20. Nico in my mind is the most underrated female singer of all time. Bottom line: She was an icon. Her music is somewhat like reading a poem. If you mix beautiful, sad, and depressing at the same time you get Nico. RIP Nico

349 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.

350 Mahalia Jackson

The greatest lady gospel singer, listen to her rendition of "O Holy Night" and tell me she should not be at the top of this list.

Unbelievable quality. Power and softness, strength and sensitivity. Surely the best gospel singer of all time. Even Aretha Frankin nag at her funeral.

The strongest and most melodic singers in the world are in the gospel genre of music! CeCe Winans, Mary Mary, Mahalia Jackson, Tamela Mann and Karen Clarke Sheard can sure make the hairs on my neck stand! Can anyone say Amen!

352 Katherine Jenkins

There's not even a word brilliant enough to describe Katherine. She is beautiful, as is her amazing voice! Classical cross-over singer, T.V. show host, model, she's sang for the troops... What else can you want! LOVE HER

Katherine is the UK's No 1 these days, and one of the best in the world. Irrespective of whether or not you like her classical style, there is no doubt about the quality of her voice.

She's brilliant and should definitely be higher on this list! Her rendition of the song Love Never Dies is spectacular!

354 Doro Pesch Doro Pesch Doro Pesch is a German hard rock singer that started her career in native Düsseldorf in the early 80s with the underground bands Snakebite and Beast.

This tiny blonde singer with a less than tiny voice fronted the 80's German band, Warlock before going solo. Unfortunately, she is not that well known in the United States, but is probably the best female hard rock singer of all-time. Doro records to this day. Her last album, Warrior Soul, is among her finest moments.

The former singer of Warlock, this woman is the true queen of hard rock and metal. She can sing a beautiful ballad or powerhouse metal song. Her solo albums such as Warrior Soul are amazing as well. -

Doro is the greatest female hard rock singer of all time.

356 Haris Alexiou

She is simply the best Greek singer. Byzantine throat, marvellous atmoshperic songs... Just go listen to her... I suggest "theos an einai" or "ola se thumizoun" in live performance ofc... Deserves to be in the top 5. -

Deserves much higher rank in this list

Simply the best, makes you shudder. -

359 Emilie Autumn

Beautiful voice and such powerful lyrics. Really unique. I don't know why she isn't on here already.

She shouldn't even be on this list. She's the best thing that's ever happened to human kind.

She has a ' Amazing voice! It's so original and its unfortunate that she really only targets a niche audience! She's far to amazing to be this low maayn! She's My Inspiration! Love that woman
