The Top Ten

1 David Phelps

No worries David, You make everyone listen without effort! Most singers have to have costumes and lights and fanfare in the background to keep the audience interested, but David needs nothing, not even music, He is the music and He sings so beautiful, I've never heard a voice like His.

Beautiful voice anointed by God; truly one of the greatest voices of all time; He brings tears to many when he hits those high notes; but his voice is just amazing at all levels. He has come so far and only has up to go. God Bless David Phelps.

David has richly been blessed with a beautiful voice. May he be the number 1 man.

David is the best there is!
