Best Male Singers

The Top Ten

Freddie Mercury Freddie Mercury (born Farrokh Bulsara, 5th September 1946 - 24th November 1991) was a Zanzibari-born British singer of Indian descent, songwriter and record producer, known as the lead vocalist and songwriter of the British rock band Queen. He also became known for his flamboyant stage persona and four-octave ...read more.

His style can't be even competed today
The only person who understands the true value of voice and hands is called freddie mercury

The only reason MJ is on top is because he received stacks of sympathy votes. Freddie has got the best voice I've ever heard. Sure MJ is a good dancer, but his voice compared to Freddie's; there's no comparison
RIP FREDDIE

Most amazing voice of all time. Freddie Mercury sang great rock ballads, amazing rock anthems, and wonderful operatic rock. Also, perhaps some of the most widely known music of all time (such as We Will Rock You) along with some less known gems (such as Show Must Go On). Wonderful range, sound, and spirit.

Freddie Mercury has such a beautiful voice he makes Adam Lambert look like Justin Bieber.

Michael Jackson Michael Joseph Jackson was an American singer, dancer, and songwriter born on August 29, 1958 in Gary, Indiana and passed away on June 25, 2009. He donated (at least) a remarkable 500,000,000 dollars to charity. Michael is also known as The King of Pop (a title given to him by Elizabeth Taylor) or under ...read more.

A man, a legend, an icon. He could sing 4 octaves when the average singer sing 2 to 2 and a half octaves. By far the best voice ever, by far being able to very low to very high. RIP a Legend

He is the King of Pop! He is the Biggest Pop Star of All Time! He has the most selling album of all time! God Bless You Michael!

Best singer! One of the best singer till now. Why I don't know people say any thing of him? Rip mj. Some people still enjoy songs by you

He sounded like an angel! But people tended to pay more attention to his dancing skills than his singing

Elvis Presley Elvis Presley was an American musician and actor. Known as "The King" He was mostly known for his number 1 singles including "Heartbreak Hotel" "Hound Dog" "Jailhouse Rock" "Love me Tender" Elvis debuted in the movie "Love me Tender" and focused less on his music and continued that way. ...read more.

Elvis should be at the top of this list, without a doubt.. Elvis Presley has the most powerful singing voice of yesterday, today and tomorrow. Greatest showmanship, voice, charisma, the whole package. Just listen to his music, it tells the whole story. Elvis still has fans from all over the world that loves him and all his beautiful music he left us. Go to graceland and see his trophy room of Gold and Platinum Gold records and awards and it is without a doubt the greatest and the most beautiful room you could ever imagine and the most remarkable display of accomplishments in the history of music and of entertainment. When I saw the room my heart sunk, 132 gold, 70 platunum, and 33 mulitplatinum certificates etc. It's so amazing what Elvis accomplished in the short time he was with us, he gave so much of himself. The greatest entertainer that has or will ever walk the face of this earth. Thank you Mr. Presley, you're on the top of my list.

Who ever made this list is messed because Elvis should be at the top

In my opinion Elvis Presley had the most versatile and powerful voice in the history of popular music. If you need convincing, just listen to a few of his songs such as Jailhouse Rock, Are you Lonesome Tonight, In the Ghetto, If I can dream, Suspicious Minds, Heartbreak Hotel, Burning Love, Kentucky Rain just to mention a few and then try to come up with another singer who could perform all of those songs anywhere near as well as he did. Music has obviously changed quite a bit throughout the years and there have been plenty of great singers who could sing in one particular style very well but none in my opinion in his prime none of them could match the overall singing voice of Elvis.

Elvis was and still is the best singer in the world, a beautiful voice the artist of the 20th century. His music and influence will last ten thousand years, the others on this poll will never equal his great talent. The king.

John Lennon John Winston Ono Lennon, MBE was an English singer and songwriter who rose to worldwide fame as a co-founder of the Beatles, the most commercially successful band in the history of popular music. He was assassinated by Mark David Chapman on December 8, 1980 at age 40.

Come on dear friends, John Lennon taught the world how to sing and gave birth to almost all the good music we are listening to right now, who else has contributed like this and given birth to such a vast musical universe followed by millions around the world for more than 60 years and counting? So shouldn't Dad be The Number One?. Of course! : His singing style characterized itself for mastering several styles, every single musical style or sound feature John Lennon took in his hands he demonstrated to master it and even perfect it, taking it beyond any limits in terms of artistic expressionism and full enrichment, but even better than these facts is the one that he created a style of his own, yes, that is, I mean such IS the height of the transcendence of his Multipowerful Legacy, you just need to listen to a couple of his songs and will get what I and many many more are saying, and he achieved all this by only being true to himself! By setting his heart free! Yes indeed, honesty was ...more

John was not just the most influential person in history but he is without a doubt one of the most sensational singers I have ever heard. Having that avenged sevonfold guy and Chris Brown ahead of him is an absolute outrage.

John Lennon is the best singer I have ever heard, and better yet, the best singer of all time. Better than Elvis, and better than everyone else for the matter. His voice is raw, real, seductive, and perfect for rock n' roll all at the same time. Goes to show just how his voice can sound in many different tones, not a lot of singers can sound like he could.

Number one...everything John Lennon

Frank Sinatra Francis Albert "Frank" Sinatra was an American singer, actor, and producer who was one of the most popular and influential musical artists of the 20th century. He is one of the best-selling music artists of all time, having sold more than 150 million records worldwide.

Francis Albert Sinatra is the obvious choice and is the right choice. Not only because of his seminal influence (longitudinal) in shaping modern interpretive singing, and not only because he was widely regarded by his peer musicians as the best of the best (within genre but also contemporary classical and jazz musicians, but also because his influence was and is pervasive throughout our culture; in other words, his musical idiom (e.G. , his 'devil may care' approach to swing) profoundly influenced other art forms as well as mainstream behavioral norms.

I agree Freddie Mercury is of equal vocal talent, but Sinatra is timeless and should be #1 due to his unique delivery. In his prime he was the ultimate performer. John Lennon was lucky to be paired with McCartney otherwise we would have never of heard him. I have seen most of these performers, not including Sinatra. Freddie was the best I have ever seen. Sinatra is the best I have ever heard. He pre dated rock so I guess people are just not aware.

The singer of the last century. Possibly the greatest storyteller of all-time.
A songwriters dream.

How is Frank Sinatra number 54? He had a much better voice than Justin Bieber and Chris Brown combined. In fact he inspired both of them and many more artists. He has a unique voice and very subtle and nice. Sinatra should be in the top 10 for sure!

Adam Lambert Adam Mitchel Lambert is an American singer, songwriter and stage actor. Since 2009, he has sold over 2.5 million albums and 5 million singles worldwide.

Have almost run out of words to describe Adam Lambert. He is awesome. Having seen him on tour I have to say that you can actually FEEL his voice in your body. His resonance is so strong that it is rather like feeling the drums at a rock concert... It envelopes you.. He is the best and can't wait for his next album out soon.

Adam Lambert is the best, most exciting, and dynamic singer of this generation. His voice has an incredible range and he controls it perfectly. He is simply amazing!

Adam has the best voice on earth, hands down, not even close. This guy can also entertain you, draw you in with his sex appeal, like no other. Adam Lambert is a genius!

Brilliant, multioctave singer who knows when to have quiet and gentle moments with a gorgeous controlled tenor and middle range. His tone, pitch, breath control ^^ power ^^ range, particularly for a male vocalist is unparalleled in music today. He is a chameleon both in presentation and in his voice and can sing anything from classical opera, to theatrical productions, to rock and roll and simple acoustic melodies. His voice captivates and has such presence. His emotive abilities while singing and performing are mesmerizing and very real. His voice is like medicine to the soul and comes from a beautiful soul with a true heart. Love Adam. Fan forever.

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 .

Oh my goodness... how the hell is Macca, the most succesful musician of all time, in 193?! One word can explain it: ludacris.

Another special result of the British Invasion that brought us such tender harmonious melodies. Like his fellows, Paul was a Newcastle bloke who had genius and the perseverance to develop it into beautiful new exciting sounds and perceptive language that puts some of our current output to shame. And best of all Beatles music was, is, not only a superior work of art but it is rousing unencumbered fun. But it took a while. I recall asking the NYC Rainbow Room conductor to play us some Beatles music to dance to. His huffy answer.. We
Don't play THAT here. Can you imagine?

Best songwriter that's ever lived. He should never be on no 86, it's crazy! Even John Lennon should be below him I believe he was by far a superior Beatle!

Paul is one of the finest singers in rock. On songs like Till There was You and Blackbird he had a gentle voice on songs like Sergeant Pepper and Drive my Car he had his raw 'Little Richard vocal'. On Let it Be and Long and Winding Road he was sounding like a gospel singer. Bigger vocal range and better vocal technique than Mercury or Presley.

Steve Perry Stephen Ray "Steve" Perry is an American singer, songwriter, and record producer. He is known as the lead singer of the rock band Journey during their most commercially successful periods from 1977 to 1987 and again from 1995 to 1998.

He's amazing! He can sing the phone book and it would be brilliant! He's the Breathe that gave Journey Life. He is one man, one voice with millions of adoring, faithful fans!

The best voice ever, that's why he's nicknamed " THE VOICE". He's hoping the rumours are true and he's bringing out a new album

Few can sing with the emotion and timbre that he does. His legendary voice has deepened, mellowed, and gotten grittier (in a good way) but still brings a magic and beauty that is untouchable. His songwriting is incredible, I do hope he will treat is to more of his creations. But if not, what a gift to have been able to enjoy the recordings that exist.

He should be #1. No other male voice I've ever heard has the range or beauty Steve Perry's does.

Robert Plant Robert Anthony Plant (born 20 August 1948) is an English musician, singer, and songwriter best known as the lead singer and lyricist of the rock band Led Zeppelin.

Sorry, but I really can't take that Robert Plant isn't in the top ten...

Most of the guys in the Top Ten don't deserve the honor of it. Robert Plant is one of the most respected singers of all time and have influenced countless other artists. 'enough said.

BEST BAND EVER! I mean its amazing and one of a kind voice which makes Robert stand out from all of the others. Truly Inspirational Talent.

Robert Plant was the Golden God of rock and a mesmerizing front man in Led Zeppelin. As a solo artist he continues to reinvent himself. His voice is one of a kind and ranges from primal howls to seductive to folksy. His lyrics are beautiful poetry that can transport you to another time and place. There is simply no one like him.

Stevie Wonder Stevland Hardaway Morris, known by his stage name Stevie Wonder, is an American musician, singer, songwriter, record producer, and multi-instrumentalist.

Dude how the hell is stevie wonder in 39th? He should be in the top 10 at least

This man can do literally everything: he can play any instrument, is a god on the harmonica, can sing super well and writes his own music. There's a reason why he's been singing since he was 12.

When I next come back to this website Stevie Wonder and Robert Plant better be in the top ten!

Stevie Wonder has shown everyone a variety of various songs that he has created. Many include, 'Sir Duke', 'Part Time Lover', 'I Just Called To Say I Love You', 'Isn't She Lovely' and 'Superstition'. Stevie Wonder is one of the greatest male singers of all tome and should definitely be in the Top 5. Along with Stevie Wonder, other recording artists such as Michael Jackson, Freddie Mercury, Roy Orbison, Elvis Presley, Gary Puckett and more belong in the Top 20. Many other singers and musicians around the world are amazing and have different voices. Such as the well known Rock bands, Journey, Triumph and Rush. Three excellent bands with three excellent voice ranges. This conludes my opinion.

The Newcomers

? Dave Padden David James Padden, is a Canadian musician, best known as the former vocalist and rhythm guitarist for Canadian thrash metal band Annihilator from 2003 to 2014.

The Contenders

Steven Tyler Steven Tyler is an American singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and former television music competition judge, best known as the lead singer of the Boston-based rock band Aerosmith, in which he also plays the harmonica, and occasional piano and percussion.

steve's the demon of screamin how is he not in the top ten

Steven is not only one of the best live singers of all time, but simply one of the best singers, period. His vocal range is legendary, from deep and low to awesome scheeching. Not to mention his brilliant vocal control and power. And has everyone forgot who sung I Don't Want To Miss A Thing? (One of the best songs of all time) Just awesome!

He is the most unique singer I have ever seen, his voice sounds better than Michael Jackson, I don't know much about the technical octaves and stuff

About time he's seen on here! He's got such a unique, powerful, special and outright amazing voice! I doubt there's anyone on this planet that can do what he does, for as long as he has!

Prince Prince Rogers Nelson (June 7, 1958 - April 21st, 2016) was an American musician, best known for being one of the most popular and influential artists from the 80s, with songs such as "Purple Rain", "Little Red Corvette", "1999", and "When Doves Cry" .

You're Joking right this man has an amazing voice and yet he's not even in the top 100 does anyone here remember Let's go crazy, Purple Rain, la la la means I love you, I wanna be your lover? Prince could sing at Michael Jackson's level in a split second.

This man had and still does today, incredible vocal range that can hit high pitch to low pitch without even the slightest bit error well maintaining a level of lust, soul and Rb with some rich and fulfilling pop music which you simply can't get today.

Prince was a legend and still is along with many more talented singers from the past who aren't receiving the credit they deserve and it's disgusting on how the new generation thinks what they got is real music.

Here's a little question you can ask yourself. who do you think influenced today's singers?

Freddie Mercury, Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, etc can sing at Michael Jackson's level - venomouskillingmachine

I love this guy. I remember being 8 years old and seeing him in a magazine for the first time and I was just mesmerized by his looks, his sex appeal. He has SO MANY songs and wide range of genres and tempos and vocal range. He can play so many instruments and he performs better than anyone else I've seen so far (I'm 17). This man just never fails to amaze me. I hate that barely anyone seems to know who he is because he has more talent in his pinky than all the artists that are taking Grammy awards home today. I wish I could've been alive in the 80's to have seen him live because I'm pretty sure it would be one of the greatest experiences ever. "If I Was your Girlfriend" is my favorite song (from him and generally speaking) so far but even today I'm still discovering new Prince songs so hopefully I will gain more favorites. This man should be the #1 greatest artist of all time.

Prince can sing 4 octaves. His song "The most beautiful girl in the world" really showcases his vocal range to hit both high and low notes.

Plus not only does Prince sing, he writes, produces, and plays most the instruments on his own recordings. So much talent.

He's a music legend, so why only at the 16th spot? He should be within the top 10 with all the other legends like John Lennon, Michael Jackson, Frank Sinatra, Elvis and Elton John (Which by the way, where is he? ). He is a music icon and deserves a higher spot than 16. He most certainly beats Usher, Adam Lambert and Bruno Mars any day.

Chester Bennington Chester Charles Bennington (March 20th, 1976 - July 20th, 2017) was an American musician, singer, songwriter and actor, best known for being the lead singer of Linkin Park. He also participated in side projects like Julien K and Dead By Sunrise. He committed suicide in 2017 after a period of depression. ...read more.

No doubt Linkin Park is so successful now, or else, they could have been the same with mark wakefield, but it is chester who made the show. Chester indeed is the best.

He can scream louder than all of the rock bands combined, after all he is the chester bennington

He's amazing. He can sing a variety of music, from Adele to Linkin Park music, and makes Linkin Park one of the best bands out there.

Chester Bennington deserves to be in the first position of this list...
No doubt, he is the best singer in this entire universe... He sings like an angel and screams like a devil... He is blesses with a magical and heavenly voice... He is glorified for his screaming powers... He marks the birth of the best band this world has ever seen, Linkin Park... He is a crazy guy... He is sexy... He has created many immortal pieces in music... He is the best singer this world has ever seen... Love you Chaz... CHESTER RULES

Bruno Mars Peter Gene Hernandez, professionally known by his stage name Bruno Mars, is an American singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, and choreographer. ...read more.

bruno mars voice is awesome, he should be higher in this list, the notes this guy can hit its just crazy =D

He has the most amazing voice, and is just gorgeous! How is he so low down this list?

DOWN? He is way too high on this list... Where is elton john and lionel richie?

Bruno mars is the bomb especially the lazy song, grenade, just the way you are

Bruno mars is the best there is in this world wonderful performer his never been called such names in social media group sides his singing brings love and dancing keeps him move

Some I even call him a creative genre artist singer what a man Bruno is in music

Kim Jaejoong Kim Jae-joong, also known mononymously as Jaejoong, is a South Korean singer, songwriter, actor, director and designer. He is best known as a member of the Korean pop group JYJ, and was one of the original members of boy band TVXQ.

Kim Jaejoong is a great singer, his singing is probably not the best but he must be the most effort, he dance may not be the best but he is certainly the most desperately. Debut for so many years, he was very humble, he is the best in my heart

Jaejoong is a great singer and composer. He has very beautiful and healing voice. Jaejoong is a real artist! He is amazing!

Kim Jaejoong is one of the best singer in Asia, his magnetic voice attracts millions girls from all over the world. Besides, he is also the real artist, as he composed many famous songs for his group. In addition, he is also a new star as a actor. Kim Jaejoong is my life!

I think Kim Jaejoong is one of the best singer in the world. It does not mean he sings most skillfully, but means that he sings with all his heart and emotion! Certainly there is no doubt that his skill is so great too! Listen to him, I can get more than a song. I think music is more than music, and Kim's song embody the nature of the music, his music is the real music, which is rare and commendable in the materialistic society.

Usher Usher Terry Raymond IV is an American singer, songwriter, dancer, and actor. Born in Dallas, but raised in Chattanooga, Tennessee was where he lived until moving to Atlanta, Georgia at the age of 12 where his mother put him in local singing competitions all over the city.

Are you kidding me. I can think of 100 singer's better than this dude.

Usher is good, but above Donny Hathaway, Joe, Johnny Gill, Luther Vandross, Teddy Pendergrass, Marvin Gaye and Brian McKnight? I don't think so.

I love Usher and I always will you rock keep doing what your doing love you

Usher is the greatest because he has gone through an experience that very few celebrities go through. ( aka appearing on Sesame Street.)

Marvin Gaye Marvin Gaye was an American singer, songwriter, and musician, and is regarded as one of the greatest singers of all time.

This guy is amazing. Why is their such tasteless rubbish above him. Eminem isn't even a SINGER. He's a rapper!

Eminem? Higher than Marvin? Whatever kind of joke it is, placing the worst musician ever who isn't even a singer and is a rapper above Marvin Gaye. Whoever voted for Eminem, leave TheTopTens.

Ah, yes. The music 99% of our generation was conceived to. You have to give him some credit for that.

Are you kidding? He sung, emphasis on sung, the second greatest song of all time.

Ray Charles Ray Charles Robinson, professionally known as Ray Charles, was an American singer, songwriter, musician, and composer.

A beautiful American, great guy and a very special singer. Another example of someone who couldn't see the world around him but was not blind to his love for music and his need to share his talents and his inner sight with us all. When I hear his deeply soulful voice begin "Oh beautiful for spacious skies. for amber waves of grain" I'm so grateful and proud that Ray Charles and I both share that same country.

Probably young people here voting have not experienced the genius of Ray. Go out an listen to a greatest hits and more. He is so soulful and can rock with the best. ONE NOTE and you know who it is, pure class voice and performer

Come on, Bruno Mars and Justin Timberlake are above Ray Charles?!
I don't have anything against Bruno Mars or Timberlake, but Ray Charles was a genius! Great singer and awesome pianist! He was blind yet he was a better musician than Mars or Timberlake could ever dream of!

Eminem? No, somebody wake me up from this awful nightmare. Eminem is sexist and homophobic, has an awful voice, and is not even a singer, he is a rapper and the worst musician ever. If you voted for Eminem instead of Ray, go to another site, we don't need you.

Josh Groban Joshua Winslow "Josh" Groban is an American singer, songwriter, actor, and record producer. His first four solo albums have been certified multi-platinum, and he was charted in 2007 as the number-one best selling artist in the United States, with over 22.3 million records.

Josh Groban is by far the best male singer out there at the moment, he's not in league with anyone else. His music is genre-less, it can't be easily categorized. He is admired and respected by those in the music industry who have made it to the top - which is where Josh belongs. He'll be around for a long time to come! His voice is both soothing and upbeat to listen to, he sings from the heart and the lyrics of his songs have real meaning and are beautiful to hear. I like the fact that this young man doesn't try to emulate anyone else, he's "Just Josh" who has real talent as well as being a kind and giving person.

Josh Groban is a wonderful singer. I love his music and his voice. I only wish he is a bit more open on other genres. There are times I don't feel motivated finding his music... But still he is one of the best out there. He is also one of the celebrities I really wish to meet and wish that he sings to me personally. Love ya Josh!

What can I say - I just love this man and his voice.

Quality! Is there more to say? How about: The best male voice ever heard in the history of music. I could listen to Josh Groban sing anything. You hear all about the women singers that are good but Josh Groban is not given the fame due him.

Jon Bon Jovi John Francis Bongiovi, Jr., known as Jon Bon Jovi, is an American singer-songwriter, record producer, philanthropist, and actor, best known as the founder and frontman of rock band Bon Jovi, which was formed in 1983. He is famous for his band's hit song “Livin’ On A Prayer“ released in 1986. He ...read more.

My gosh!?.. What happened to you people?.. Jon Bon Jovi should at a place higher than this!.. He should be among the top ten!.. His staying power in the music industry was proof enough to consider that he's one of the best!

BON JOVI FOR LIFE

Great singer, he should be in the top 10, his far better than any ROCK singers out their except, freddie mercury.. Jon Bon Jovi is the PRINCE OF ROCK. So amazing.

How could jon not be in the top ten

He has one of the greatest rock voices

In my humble opinion He should be right up there with Freddie Mercury in the top five of all time. Jon has been an amazing singer for decades now, and still sells out arenas and stadiums. He has a huge catalog of songs to choose from, sings each one as if it's his favorite, and can perform for hours to the delight of each and every person in the audience.

Elton John Sir Elton Hercules John CBE is an English singer, pianist, and composer. He has worked with lyricist Bernie Taupin as his songwriting partner since 1967; they have collaborated on more than 30 albums to date.

I'm still standing with Elton Jhn! He is Gay and makes AMAZING MUSIC!

NUMBER 24? Come on, guys, Elton John DEFINITELY deserves at least top fifteen, or even top 10!

I'm still standing

YEAH

YEAH

YEAH

Sorry. This man is the best.

Listen to his vocal range in the 1970s; it's amazing. Then, there is the variety of music he sang (and still sings). Everything from pop to rock to ballads to country and even soul.

Billy Joel William Martin Joel is an American singer-songwriter, composer and pianist. Commonly nicknamed the "Piano Man", he has been making music since the 1960s, releasing popular albums throughout the '70s, '80s and '90s.

He is simply the greatest singer of all time! If you don't believe me just scroll through a list of the top Billy Joel songs and listen to them!

One of the best singer-songwriters of all time. He is simply and utterly one of the most talented musicians in modern history. Everyone at least loves a handful of his songs, and shows his surprising and incredible vocal range. Some songs don't even sound like him, but it's his voice, just being incredibly versatile with it.

NUMBER 59!? This guy is a superb pianist and a songwriter, his showmanship shows no bounds, and his voice. It supports EVERYTHING I just said.

Vocal control and versatility he is one of the best. huge vocal range too

Kurt Cobain Kurt Cobain was born February 20, 1967, in Aberdeen, Washington. In 1987, he started the grunge band Nirvana, which became one of the most successful bands ever. He was a talented yet troubled grunge performer. Kurt Cobain became a rock legend in the 1990s with his band. He committed suicide at his ...read more.

One of the best singers out there! Why is he at #55? My music teacher was the one who influenced me to listen to Nirvana and I'm thankful for that. I'm 14 and even I appreciate a great voice. Most of the singers on this list are whiny and they put no emotion and meaning behind their voice, unlike Kurt. I love Smells like a teen spirit, lithium and in bloom. THEY ARE THE KINGS AND GODS OF GRUNGE!

Kurt Cobain's voice is beautiful and I'm surprised he's not up farther. His voice is so incredibly unique. I love the raspy sound to it. Kurt Cobain deserves to be way farther up this list (or at least passed Justin Bieber). Nirvana forever. RIP Kurt Cobain - my inspiration and role model. A true legend.

While Kurt, iconic frontman of nirvana, may not possess the control and range of some other singers, he poured his heart inton his words like no other. He was also a real singer and artist, unlike about 95 percent of the singers ranked higher than. Some of my favorite songs which exhibit his voice, School, Lounge Act, Big Long Now, Frances Farmer will have her revenge on Seattle, Heart-Shaped Box, All Apologies, Where did you sleep last night?...

People don't appreciate good music that god gave us... That is so sad.. On this list there's just a couple of metal singers and that is the saddest thing...

Ronnie James Dio Ronnie James Dio (born Ronald James Padavona; July 10, 1942 – May 16, 2010) was an American heavy metal singer, songwriter and musician. He fronted and/or founded numerous groups including Elf, Rainbow, Black Sabbath, Dio and Heaven & Hell. He is credited with popularizing the "metal horns" hand gesture ...read more.

Greatest singer who ever lived in my opinion. Ronnie James Dio is my hero he could sing any genre he wanted. His voice always astounded me, not only the power but how his voice could also be so soft. I love that he sung about dragons, rainbows and deamons His lyrics were full of wonder. I can't believe he is so far down this list.

DIO means GOD for a reason! There is none better than Him, as far as I am concerned. I've been a fan of His from the very first time I heard Him sing.

His vocal range was truly amazing. No one can sing like Dio. Many singers have talent that appears once in a generation. There will never be another Ronnie James Dio no matter how long humans exist.

I can't believe he is this far down. Listen to holy diver or rainbow in the dark. Justin beiber is higher than him, who's voting on this website? Idiots obviously.

R. Kelly Robert Sylvester Kelly, known professionally as R. Kelly, is an American recording artist, songwriter, record producer, and former professional basketball player.

Truly at least he is open with liking young girl there are lot you men out there that are more scrum bags than R. Kelly who are molesting their own blood behind closed door. I do not condone R. Kelly behavior but if these girl were example they would not have allowed him to be intimate with them in the first place. However I believe R. Kelly should have ranked higher as he one of the best R&B Singer, He is talented, gifted and blessed and has always produce #1 singles. It not be recently. That is my opinion and I am entitled to it!

It seems the mainstream will never recognize his true potential if he keeps doing hip hop, but his balladry is untouchable. A phenomenal range, can do every technique in singing... Easily the best male R&B singer of our generation

He. Needs. To. Clean. Up. His act.

Great voice should be in top10.
