Best Female Singers of All Time


The Contenders: Page 22

421 Minette Linderoth

She sang beautifully in the Swedish song contest!

422 Malin Svensson
423 JoJo JoJo

Jojo is a brilliant singer and role model for the younger generation, she should be in the top 20 for her amazing talent!!

Maybe not as popular as she was a decade ago she still has some amazing vocal control and frequently made top charts in her day. Still sends chills down my spine with the way she can belt out those notes.

JoJo's Song make me warm without hundreds of blankets. She should be in the top 10. I love her, I die for her.

You're having a laugh 316 she should be way higher. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

424 Taylor Dayne

This woman sings like a rock goddess, check out her vocals in original sin

Love her sing, can listen to her for hours and hours, over and over

Taylor should be among the top ten best singers of all time.
She has the voice and has gotten better over time.

425 Lisa Gerrard

Fell in love with her haunting voice on the soundtrack for the movie "Gladiator" - Now We Are Free!

Really underrated. Her voice is often called otherworldly and angelic. Sounds deep and bright at the same tile.

It's a real shame to see a singer like Lisa Gerrard this low on the list..She is the one and only people.
Listen to "The host of the seraphim" by her and you will get yourselves acquainted to what otherworldly music sounds like.

From Dead can dance, the epitome of talent.

426 Annisette Hansen

The greatest voice in Danish music for almost five decades

427 Ofra Haza

I don't care what anyone says, hands down the BEST singer the world has ever known. Her voice was versatile, strong, so beautiful it could make you weep, and haunting. It could send shivers down your spine when she belted and held a note. To say that she was "folk" or "pop" or "world beat fusion" is to say nothing substantial about Ofra. She was lightyears ahead in a class of her own, and the roots of her people went deep in her songs. She was an angel. I can't even imagine a more beautiful voice in heaven, and I hope someday I shall hear it again.

She passed away in 2000. She had a heaven sent voice. check her out on She sang in multiple languages such as English, French, Hebrew, Arabaic...
She was simply a goddess. She is well known in Europe. Maria Carey may have had more hits by an american standard, but I don't see how anyone could say she is a better singer then ofra

Only one word to describe Ofra Haza...she had the voice of an female singer can ever sing like ofra haza...i keep listening to her voice daily and it definitely brings tears in my eyes...and pain because she left us soon...

She is the best female singer the world has ever known...her voice was divine..

Ofra Haza was the best!

430 Annette Olzon

Anette Olzon, has been singing her whole life and worked hard for the career she made. She is currently the lead singer for Nightwish, and when they first told her no, she kept strong and knew not to give up. Look where she is now! Touring all over the world and selling millions, if not billions, of albums.

Not only does she have an amazing voice- look at "The Poet and The Pendulum", "Cadence of Her Last Breath", "Eva", "Sahara", "7 Days to The Wolves", and "Meadows of Heaven"- she also has a beautiful personality. - NWFan357

She has a amazing voice as the new lead singer of Nightwish. She should be no less than number 10.

Amazing & emotive voice. Tarja's voice is strong but her heart wasn't in it. Anettes is and you can tell, just listen to The Poet & The Pendulum
