Top Ten Greatest Non-American Singers

The Top Ten

1 Yuya Matsushita (Japan)

Oh gosh, where should I start? His voice is recognizable. It's soft yet so sweet and cute. His songs makes me want to hear it over and over again. The melody of his songs and his voice mixes perfectly w/
Each other.

Not only does he have great talent as a singer/songwriter, have the strength to push himself to study dance, singing, and acting even into an active career, but he's also a great guy!

He got a strong vocal with sad-like voice. His talent was overwhelming too. He just the best.


Same as the other comment. Bird was literally my syllabus at one point. He's very refreshing and kind to everyone.

4 Justin Bieber (Canada)

No matter who says what, Justin will always be my savior. His voice saves me from drowning myself in the depths of grief. So for me, he is the best singer in the world. He deserves that no, 1 position. In me, he will always be ranked number 1. He also inspires me a lot. Not everyone has the courage to own up to their mistakes and apologize for it too like he did. Thank you JBro, for being such a wonderful brother to me, even unknowingly,
