Top Ten Greatest Male Tenors

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Fernando Varela

Awesome tenor and member of group Forte who came in 4th on America's Got Talent. He exhibits the highest of standards in all aspects of his life!

Great range - strong in the low notes and beautiful in the highest ones. But in addition to his technical skills, especially loved is his unique style. Into every performance, every song, he puts his heart and soul. He's a Latino, with that open, unabashed emotional expression - beautiful singing from a true romantic.

Beautiful, expressive, uplifting tenor who you want to listen to non-stop. As one of the crossover group FORTE, he is part of the magic when their voices come together.

Fernando deserves to be, and someday will be, much higher on this list. His voice is technically superb, but also has a warmth and depth unmatched by any other.

Great voice, but Elvis Presley is a baritone, not a tenor.

The greatest "NON-classically trained" voice of all time.

25 David Miller

David has achieved success in his chosen field because of his love of singing and the desire to succeed. As a member of Il Divo, he is spotlighted in "Bring Him Home" and it is spellbindingly beautiful!

David performs from his heart. He feels every vibration --his soul is always communicating with him which resonates with the people who recognize his passion. His vocal energy is healing and his smile lights up a room. He walks the Planet with love...

David is the tenor who sings in my favorite group 'Il Divo'. His voice is so incredible. He can sing whatever he wants, it is always beautiful!

David Miller's beautiful voice goes straight to your soul. Consummate performer.

Freddie is arguably the greatest singer of all time regardless of classification

27 Mario Frangoulis

This Greek Tenor is one of the best cross-over artists today. The voice has a haunting power, which neither Josh Groban or Andrea Bocelli can match. And he sings with a great heart! If there is to be any future for classical music, to survive and fill in the seats at the concert halls, it is in the hands of artists like Mario Frangoulis. He sings in greek, Italian, English, French and Spanish and does it effortlessly.

My absolute FAVORITE tenor! Great talent and amazing voice..

B.

No other voice touches my soul and heart like his. He sings with such feeling, such passion - his voice expresses so beautifully what is in his soul and heart.

28 Jonas Kaufmann

The most beautiful voice of today,

He does not sing you a song. He does not tell you a story. He pulls you in, pulls you under, and when he finally lets you go, you find yourself dripping with emotions you might otherwise never have felt.

The easy, natural style, the superb quality of his tone, his remarkable versatility and emotional range make him, for me, the best tenor in the world. I could listen to him all day.

This guy is the best in the World today. Besides having a great voice he has the matching personality. Can only explain his position at number 26 as him not being heard as frequently as some of the so-called popular tenors.

29 Gianluca Ginoble

Gianluca has an amazing and beautiful voice, so deep and strong, so it's impossible to believe that it's the sound of eighteen year old guy. He is especially good with songs in Spanish and his native language, so many shades in his voice. And the songs of Sinatra seemed to be created for him. He's very gifted young man.

Gianluca Ginoble has such a smooth voice. Not only can he sing in his Italian language but also in
Spanish and English. Of the three, his command of the
English is unbelievable. How in the world does an 18 year old sing like this--blows my mind. Gianluca will go far in the USA. He loves the old American singers such as
Sinatra. His appreciation for all music is amazing. He is such a class act. I would never put Ignazio and Piero (II Volo) ahead of Gianluca--NEVER!

Gianluca is 18 years old only and a baritone voice that lifts me up again and again. Winner of a singing competition in Italy with 14 years. Now on worldwide concert tour with Piero Barone and Ignazio Boschetto as IL VOLO = The Flight. And they are flying!

Albeit the fact that he is a lyric baritone and should not be in this list along with Carlos Marin of il Divo, Gianluca is one of the best operatic singers we have in this generation.

30 Joseph Calleja

Sure Joseph Calleja has a great future with such a talent. Although coming from the small island of Malta, he already can be considered among the greatest of all times.

I think Mr Calleja is still on the ascendant but his star shines bright and he is a good contender to the likes of the Italian greats.

Great voice and has a great character too. He is only going to get better. He is there as far as I am concerned, but I am sure he will beg to differ.

Joseph the magnifeicent Maltese tenor is a top 10 righ now!

31 Colm Wilkinson

Excellent range and breath control, powerful chest voice and brilliant vibrato and falsetto. Sings with more emotion than any other singer. Still the best around at 70 years old. A joy to listen to and an inspiration to all other singers. I had the pleasure of seeing him last year at Cardiff, not long after seeing Alfie Boe and Ramin Karimloo in seperate performances and although all 3 are brilliant, for me Colm is still the best.

Colm Wilkinson is good because he sings with emotion, even when he songs softly. He doesn't have to sing at the top of his lungs to give you goosebumps. His perfect vibrato and falsetto makes him, in my opinion, the best tenor.

The best at acting while singing, and the Irish accent just adds to the effect

Such an emotionally powerful singer.

33 Beniamino Gigli

Gigli had the most beautiful voice and was the best Lyric Tenor

The voice of an Angel! For me personally this tenor is way out in front. Breath control, diction interpretation all amazing and that velvet, caressing sound is unequalled.

A most gifted tenor

The greatest

34 Roy Orbison Roy Orbison Roy Kelton Orbison, professionally known as Roy Orbison, nicknamed Big O, was an American singer, songwriter, guitarist, and musician, mostly known for his complex voice and for hits such as, "Oh, Pretty Woman".
35 Mario Del Monaco

I have never heard a tenor of such passion, power, timber, sincerity, technique, and evenness of tone than Mario Del Monaco. Yes, there are many other tenors, but Del Monaco has it all. You name it and Del Monaco has it in full measure. The all around tenor of any century. Unfortunately, the critics didn't give him the deserved reviews he deserved. Del Monaco, the creates tenor ever! S.T.

Mario del Monaco, if you know anything about the operatic voice, need I say more?

His vocal technique and his total connection to the characters he played made him one of the best opera singers of all time.

One of the greatest dramatic tenors. Great Siegmund and Othello.
