The Contenders: Page 4
She should be top 10! She is the songbird supreme and that should be enough to describe what an amazing vocalist she is. She has one of the widest ranges in the music industry today and has produced, wrote and changed the music industry to what is it today. Many artists are inspired by her it's sad how underrated she is on this list
Not even mentioning her range but her influence in hip hop and pop changed the music industry! #18 number #1's and 250+ Million records sold.
She influenced way too many vocalists she should be in the top 10.
She's a living legend.. beyonce befor her? Really? Beyonce become a singer because of Mariah Carey.
Mariah is unreal singer with wides and thigher she,s a soprano singer, with 5/6 octaves range (and she hit 7 in the 90's) she has 4 notes and her longest note was 20 seconds. (she singing very low to very high notes) she has amazing vocal acrobatics and amazing abilities and skills...she has great melisma, her runs and riffs are complex and creative, She has amazing vibrato perfect whistle notes, She has unique voice! And she do this with nodules in her vocal cords 27 years of career ( and befor) without rest..
She's brilliant songwriter/producer/compocer...she wrote her deep songs and her hits...Amazing artist with a lot of big awards and titles, as a singer-songwriter and creatorand. There are things that only she has, such as the - artist of the millennium etc...
She has the most hits in history, a successful Christmas song and endless things...
she did it all her ...more
Doesn't even deserve to be called a musician.
You must be kidding! Eric Clapton is way above many of this list. He has been so influential for many a guitar player and his songs like Layla are very Popular.
Why is Eric Clapton at 202
An amazing, consistent artist.
EC or God is number one!
She is a role model & amazing at singing, dancing and being a philanthropist. She is definitely one of the most influential people in the world!
Shakira is very influential just because her IQ is the highest in music industry - Alexandr
Even though he's blind, he's still optimistic in all his music
There is a reason their best hits album sold 29 million copies best band ever hands down.
People have no taste in music hello HOTEL CALIFORNIA
They should easily be In top ten
They revolutionised music in the 2000's and help many teens and adults overcome depression and self doubt. They brought together people going through hard times and spread positivity and unity throughout their community
Big definitely should be at least in the top 10 what is this?
For someone who changed hip hop this man is way too far down in this lidt
Pure technicians. Many try to duplicate, many fail.
Beatles. Stones. Dylan. Presley. Cohen.
This ranking alone proves that this is simply a list of favorite artists by today's generation. The influence hank had on country is far and away greater than that of anyone else.
Every country song is influenced by hank
Hank Williams #63? Behind Kelly Clarkson and the New York Dolls?!? Bitch please! Hank Williams' brief career gave birth to popular music. His incredible songs are still being covered today and will prove to be timeless. His songwriting set the blueprint for all American songwriters (and British followers) who have come since. Hank Williams is the most influential American popular musician who ever lived.
She was so controversial, she made way for people to speak their mind no matter what
Adele was greatly inspired by her, but she's higher in ranking
Should be in top 25.
Definitely underrated in terms of his influence on pop especially in the 70s. He is the key musician that made the use of piano so relavent in the rock and roll scene, as before that piano was considered at best niche. Up to this day he continues to influence many musicians especially new talents to give them the confidenece to pursue their goals (one example is how he kept guiding Eminem, and also trained Adele to be able to sing live without getting nervous).
His melodies are timeless and provided lots of inspiration for artists who want to master how to create very memorable hooks. His influence on British culture has been recognized as he is the first musician to receive the Brit Icon award.
For me whenever I think of piano rock and roll, I think of him first and foremost. He knows how to really control the flow of piano with the flow of his singing and the matches it expertly with the flow of the song. Any piano pop song I always compare it to his works as the gold standard.
She influenced primarily all modern artist I can't fathom why she isn't in the top 20 or at least 30. Her smooth tones and not to me tion her acting career.
Her style and class still influence artists today
Really? She's not in the #top20 or even in the #top40? I really couldn't live without hearing a little bit of Aaliyah...P.S. this is the same person who did the first one for Rihanna... And you're missing Mary J. Blige...
