Best Female Singers of All Time


The Contenders: Page 21

401 Tammy Wynette

Tammy was the "First Lady of Country Music" because she was the first woman singer to sell a million copies of an album. She actually sold more than five million copies of Stand By Your Man! She was also known as the heroin of heartbreak because of her troubled life and that little tear drop in her voice.

Tammy is so unique among female country singers... what a sweet voice! when I listen to her singing "stand by your man" it always brings back memories of more innocent times.

Tammy had a great sound and at a concert I attended stayed after show to sign autograph photos, one of the greatest in country music.

can never forget the legends.

402 Ruslana Ruslana

Powerful and exotic voice. Beautiful and exciting songs. She is the Ukranian pop diva that is Ruslana.

The most amazing singer in the world. She is a diva indeed! She rocks the stage and the audience never want to let her leave the stage after she sings! She has an unique style in her songs based on some ancient rhythm from the Carpathian Mountains. She is definitely one of the best singers in the world!

Powerful voice which can destroy mountains - Alexandr

403 Tina Arena

What a fantastic singer. Listen to her belt out a cover of "Call Me" or one of her own compositions such as "Heaven Help My Heart". It is spine tingling. Add to that she also sings in French. What an artist!

LISTEN to "Burn" or "Chains" and you'll be swept away. Research more about her and her songs. That's just the beginning!

Tina has an incredible voice. Listen to her and you will be hooked.
She can belt out an up tempo number or caress your soul with a heart wrenching ballad.

404 Giorgia Fumanti

I saw her live, she serenaded me, and fell in love. The most beautiful, powerful and well controlled voice by far. Buy her CD, you won't regret it... I had to. The only others even close are Celine Dion and Sara Brightman. All the women ranked above her don't have the whole package. Take for examples, Sarah McLachlan: Sweet voice but not very powerful or as well controlled. Christina Aguillera: Powerful and well controlled, but not as sweet. Don't get me wrong, I love these ladies too, especially because they have amazing song writing abilities too, but pure singing, they can't compare with my lovely, the one, the only Giorgia Fumanti.

Giorgia Fumanti is certainly one of the most amazing singers I have ever heard. I saw her perform at the Royal Albert Hall and her voice touched all. Gor her Cd From My Heart at the time, simple fantastic and her new one just released Elysium even better.

Her new Cd "From My Heart" is amazing showing off her immense talents and singing from Her Heart with such passion and love. I have seen her in Concert, too, and think she will soon be known to everybody as one of the greatest singers of all time. - Penguin

I saw her for the first time at the Hampton Court Festival... Was blown away. Ordered her album From My Heart and it is a gem... Just ordered her new CD Elysium... Even stronger... I am surprised that I had never heard of her before... She is also stunningly beautiful and classy...

I heard many people who said that she is skinny and what's the matter with that. she is beautiful and have an amazing voice. - ronluna

beautiful singer and voice, one of the greatest singers in japan in terms of pop, rock - ronluna

406 Nina

Nina is the one and only Soul Siren of the Philippines as well as of Asia. When you say versatile its Nina. Very talented diva. She can sing any genres add to it she can also dance as gracefully as you can imagine.

Nina seems to be one of the greatest vocal not only in the Philipiines but in Asia... She can easily do the whistle note and hits the high chest notes.. She's so wonderful and beautiful inside and out... So open the gates The SOUL SIREN IS COMING...

No One does it like the Asia's diamond soul siren, And the First to reach a Diamond award in record album sales in the Philippines.

She's not only the Asia's soulsiren but the only filipino female recording artist to be reach a DIAMOND record award (10x platinum) for her album NINA Live.

407 Sertab Erener

The top Turkish female singer in this list, she should climb the ranks as of her high performance

You must listen her. She takes you from yourself with good-voice...

She is the best singer and she represented her country(Turkey) in eurıvission Turkey won. She rocks and so does Turkey

408 Donna Fargo

I can't believe Donna is at #130 on this list. Donna was extremely popular throughout the 70's and 80's and charted some of the biggest crossover songs. I can remember "The Happiest Girl in the Whole USA" and "Funny Face" playing every 10 minutes on the radio! As I would change stations, their she was! She also went on to place several more songs on the charts and despite her battling M.S. for nearly 30 years, she still is going strong with writing books and greeting cards and recently released a new song called "We Can Do Better in America"... A song that really speaks the truth about what's going on in our world. Donna is a legendary artist who has filled our hearts with song and music that will last forever.

Donna Fargo captured million of fans in the 70's and 80's with her heartfelt country tunes. Donna was one of the few country singers to crossover to pop, which she did in a big way. Donna Fargo also brought youth to country music in the 70's.

First woman in country music to have 2 million selling singles in a row

409 Natalia Oreiro

YouTube "Start It"! And she matches that talent with all of her live performances.
That is all.

411 Susan Boyle Susan Boyle Susan Magdalane Boyle is a Scottish singer who came to international attention when she appeared as a contestant on the TV programme Britain's Got Talent on 11 April 2009, singing "I Dreamed a Dream" from Les Misérables.

Obviously, these polls aren't highly visible to the world of Adult Contemporary music fans. Susan Boyle is in the news every year as the most amazing voice. Her power is well known from her audition on through four top albums with #5 on the way. Her recent tour has sell-out crowds at every stop on their feet and amazed at that voice and personality.

Having just heard Susan Boyle in concert in Dundee and twice in Glasgow, I have no hesitation is saying that Susan Boyle is for me the best singer in the world. The purity and power of her voice are incredible and consistent throughout a 2-hour 24-song set.

A gifted talent. I first heard her in the song "I Dreamed a Dream". I loved her voice when I heard the "Cry Me a River" (first edition). I think "Return" from her latest album "Someone to Watch Over Me" is one of the best for her skills.

It was great to watch her on Come in Second Place on British Has Got Talent!

413 Trisha Yearwood

There hasn't been a singer to match Trisha Yearwood's remarkable and stunning vocals...she can nail any note with such power. One of the best female vocalists in the history of any genre.

Hard to match her for power and passion. She's never been "out of voice".

the best female vocalist in a long time

414 Lani Misalucha

Lani has the best voice ever!!! Here are some of her specialties:
1. She has an operatic voice.
2. She is a soprano
3. She can mimic almost every popular singer from celine to whitney.
4. Her whistle register is very mellow.
5. She has one of the best qualities in the world.
6. She is very and I mean very very versatile , she can sing from arias to rock.
7. She has a very powerful voice.
8. She belted an F6.
9. Celine Dion personally watched her show in Las Vegas.
10. She has an incredible voice and range.
She should be part of the top 5.

Opera singers do not belt.
I myself am an opera technique student and I'm very pleased that at least there's one person on this entire list who is trying to comprehend and portray actual technique. Mariah Carey's mother was a mezzo-soprano.
She 's good but not operatically good. When it comes to technique she's not flawless

Lani Misalucha is the best,I agree with all the comments above.I watched her 5 times from california to philippines to vegas.She never failed to impress everyone watching.She is a gem to be discovered by the world.

lani misalucha, 4 me is the best female singer ever... very world class singer. she can sing any song . . .

415 Gloria Estefan Gloria Estefan

Bizarre that so many other average or less than average singers sit above Gloria. Gloria is one of the best singers of all time.

you have touched many hearts

415? Top 10 for sure. Stunning voice and beautiful too.

415th - are you kidding? Gloria is the best of all

416 Loreena McKennitt Loreena McKennitt Loreena Isabel Irene McKennitt is a Canadian musician, composer, harpist, accordionist and pianist who writes, records and performs world music with Celtic and Middle Eastern themes.

Whoever has not heard this woman sing then they are missing out. Her voice is soft and clear and absolutely beautiful. I can listen to her sing all day long. Try Penelope's song it will bring a tear to your eye.

Her voice has a clairvoyant property to it that echoes feelings rather than words. Her Celtic sound is a refreshing change from mainstream songs.

Laugh out loud at all these record industry productions ahead of Loreena. Wake up you lemmings.

So wounderful voice

417 Nancy Wilson Nancy Wilson

She should be on the best guitar list but because she's a woman no one will vote for her. Great singer, yes but a fantastic guitar player.

Very much underrated. A star, whatever she sings."

She should be way higher than all this pop junk. - KingofSnails42

418 Elizabeth Fraser

This is clearly based on popularity and not true artistic merit, because if it was, dear Liz would definitely be much much higher up, and people such as Rihanna, Katy Perry, Ashley Tisdale, etc. Would not be here. Elizabeth Fraser is, as many have famously said, the voice of God (if you think that sounds excessive, just listen). She does mostly away with conventional lyrics so as to communicate direct, overwhelming emotion. She is completely unlike anyone that came before or has come since.

The colossal talent of the Cocteau Twins. Dreamy voice, her creative use of the language is inspired!

This woman has the most versatile voice, phrasing and ability of all time. There's nothing like it.

Elizabeth Fraser has the voice of god. I think that should warrant a higher spot.

She had a beautiful voice and was amazing and talented and its a shame she quit her singer career but she was a very gifted girl and the radeo is going to miss her and her music.

I like vanessa carlton because she can ballet, sings, and play piano like me. Right now she is my new idol. So Good luck VAnessa CAlton!

420 Mina

please listen her songs her voice is beautiful her vocal range is amazing I think that she's the best italian pop singer yet. I don't know how to describe her talent... liza minnelli said that she never listen a kind of female voice like that. now mina she's 71 years old but she sings as if she had 30! Thanks to everyone

67 millions of records sold by singing just in Italian, language not particularly popular in pop music. Listen to her voice and you will know.

Are you joking?!? Mina at 254? She is a LEGEND!

Great voice, great woman, great class!
