Top Ten Male Singers With the Most Angelic Voice

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.
