Top Ten Male Singers With the Most Angelic Voice

Billyv
Apologies to those I've overlooked or am less familiar with, though that's the best reason for others to add please. Of course, we all may have different ideas of what is "angelic", and I do not mean to imply that some I intentionally don't include are not great or even better singing voices. Best male singers is a different category/list. Song choice also comes into play here.

His voice can be angelic and demonic, and this is the singer who does both extremely well.
The most angelic vocals I've ever heard is his outro to Heaven Denies by Demons and Wizards - gregorian chant style. He does all overlapping vocal harmonies (no other singers).
Demons and Wizards - Heaven Denies (outro, after 4:15).
More examples:
Demons and Wizards - Path Of Glory (intro) Fiddler on the Green, My Last Sunrise (intro).
Blind Guardian - Dream a Little Dream of Me (Ozzie Nelson cover), Miracle Machine, The Bard's Song, Age Of False Innocence. - Metal_Treasure

His voice sucks

12 Gordon Lightfoot Gordon Lightfoot

14 John Farnham John Farnham John Peter Farnham, Jr., formerly billed as Johnny Farnham from his professional debut in 1967 until 1980, is an English-born Australian pop singer.

This guy earned the nickname "The Voice" for a reason. Find his song 'You're the voice'. - Metal_Treasure

One of the best all round rock n roll, pop, soul singer of all time..
Not that well known outside Australia. But John Farnham has made legend status because he is the only artist that has had official number 1 in the 60's 70's 80's 90's 00's and 10's. Something that The Rolling Stones or The Beatles Paul McCartney and Cliff Richard haven't yet achieved.

15 Paul McCartney Paul McCartney Sir James Paul McCartney is an English singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and composer . With John Lennon, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr, he gained worldwide fame with the rock band the Beatles, one of the most popular and influential groups in the history of pop and rock music .

As much as I like the Beatles, I have to say, Mr McCartney can't sing very well. His voice certainly isn't" angelic"
Sorry... - Britgirl

No need to apologize, Bronson, for having an opinion that's opposed to mine, but I can't quite see the validity of your supporting argument.
Further, the description of this list states that we all may have different ideas of what's "angelic". - Billyv

19 Benjamin Orr Benjamin Orr Benjamin Orzechowski, known as Benjamin Orr, was an American musician best known as a singer, bassist and co-founder of the rock band the Cars.

This man was an angel, inside and out. It makes me so sad that he died. He was a great guitarist, he had a great voice, he was sexy as hell, and he had a beautiful smile. He also had a beautiful personality. He needs more credit and recognition. He was so inspirational.
