The goodness and optimism she exudes inspire me to be a better person. - BobG

She has a way of inspiring me to constantly play her music!

Something special about her voice makes me more hopeful each time I listen.
Very unusual.

The first song I listened to by her (To Believe) I realized how good she is! I recommend listening to her songs!

Andy Biersack Andrew Dennis "Andy" Biersack, formerly known as Andy Six, is an American singer and pianist. He is the founder and lead vocalist for the American rock band Black Veil Brides, and is its only remaining original member.

The message he puts across in black veil brides songs and the message he gives to fans is just perfect, he's always stood up for what he believes in, even if that means standing alone

I love everything about Andy. From his looks to his personality to the very voice he uses to speak with to be honest. He's just such a big inspiration, and an amazing person.

Andy Biersack is the most amazing person ever

He is just such an inspirational human being a positive person even when he has a broken bone or anything he always tells people to be happy and positive.

DEMI SHOULD BE NUMBER ONE! She's gone through a lot through her childhood, since her father abused her. But she got back up. She says it always turns out better. To reach your dreams. And one of my all time favorite quotes by her- 'Love is louder than the pressure to be perfect' She is my role model, and a strong woman.

She's helped me stop cutting and open up about that and my eating disorder. She's such an inspiration to me, because she shows me that its okay to not be perfect all the time, and its okay to get help

She is one of the greatest singer that can sings live better than the recorded studio version, no auto tune and singing while sitting! Its hard to project the voice but she made it effortless!

Demi should be number 1 without a doubt the fact that she shared her extremely personal story just so she could help others is really selfless and thoughtful so I do not know why she is not number 1!

Eminem Eminem, born Marshall Bruce Mathers III, is an American rapper, actor and music producer born on October 17, 1972 in St. Joseph, Missouri. Eminem has sold over 300 million records making him the bestselling hip-hop artist of all time. In addition to his solo career, he is a member of D12 and (with Royce more.

I was never a big fan of rap. However when I had a depression, I was listening to the radio and one of his songs came on, 'Till I Collapse'. I started listening to his songs and I grew stronger. My depression stopped because of him. If it hadn't been for him who knows how my life would have turned out! He saved my life.

I'm just thinking what has put Lady Gaga in the top 10. Eminem's songs are far more motivational than Lady Gaga's. Eminem should be on the top. Every time I listen to him, I grow stronger, my body and my mind feel energized. He speaks the truth. We can relate it to our lives.

He has been through so much and he speaks the truth through his music inspiring other people that have been through tough times. He is a very cool person and not the "typical celebrity". He is still down - to - earth and humble, he never forgets Detroit and his roots.

King of rap and singing

Taylor Swift Taylor Alison Swift is an American singer-songwriter. more.

She is so auto tuned. Have u heard her sing live? Her recorded songs sound so high pitched but when she sings live her voices sounds way deeper and much more different which proved that she edits her voice. That proves that she's not talented. Her songs wouldn't be annoying if she didn't high pitch and auto tune them so much. She used to be my idol but now I only like singers with real talent and who DON'T sue their fans for making fan art or for making covers of their songs. The fact that her voice live sounds way different from her recorded songs already proves that she edits her voice because she's untalented and a liar. If she didn't use auto tune and u could hear her real voice then she would only be famous for her looks like she already is. During her concerts, she ALWAYS uses a backtrack to drown out her terrible and deep voice and has lip synced so many times before. I feel bad for the people that r still fans of her and think that's she's actually talented.

Taylor is one of the most genuine, respectable artists this generation. She is not only intelligent and witty and honest, but she is so open-hearted and generous. Her music alone speaks mountains of reasons why she should be labeled as inspirational, but her character just doubles that.

She is the awesomest singer in the world she is so inspirational and she is my idol and every song of hers always fits in with my life. Thank you taylor for being there when life gets hard.

She is my idol, and all her songs speak to me. I love her and her songs.

Vic Fuentes Victor Vincent "Vic" Fuentes is the lead singer and rhythm guitarist of the rock band Pierce the Veil.

Speaking from someone who has seen the effects of depression and self harm on people close to me, the fact Vic openly talks about over-coming self harm and the messages he puts across with Pierce the Veil is great. Never give up. He is an inspiration, no doubt about it.

Ed Sheeran Edward Christopher "Ed" Sheeran is an English singer-songwriter and musician. He was born in Hebden Bridge in Yorkshire and raised in Framlingham, Suffolk.

Ed Sheeran has some of the most amazing songs ever. I can't believe Justin has beat him, I have nothing against Justin but Ed Sheeran really deserves to be in the top ten. Please vote people.

Just listen to his music. That's all you need. He's a musical genius and honestly just makes this world a better place.

He is so amazing and has a beautiful voice his lyrics are empowering and give life lessons

He started out his career alone and it hot.

Lady Gaga Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, known professionally as Lady Gaga, is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. more.

Yeah that's right lady gaga should be at the top of this list. Although I am a lady gaga fan. That doesn't mean I can't be a supporter of Katy Perry and Ke$ha. Ke$ha was a born singer and musician. Katy was a born public idol. Lady Gaga was not a born singer. She was a born songwriter and performer, but she is also talented in the ways of Singing. She is a born LEADER. She took her past experiences with bullying and turned into her inspiration. To help people through there troubles. You judge somebody you have to look past there makeup and wigs and outfits. You look at there personality. Gaga has shown us that forget what other people say this your life don't let other people live for you. You were born this way. People can take away everything, but they can't take away your freedom. Believe in God. Gaga does. It is in her song that she wrote born this way. God doesn't make mistakes!

Lady is so so inspirational she makes people feel like they belong in this world is able to make everyone to what she to and things she puts in to her are so amazing like examples: 'baby your born this way', I'm on the edge of glory, marry the night

She's the most inspirational artist

She's not as inspirational as Bruno mars or Demi lavoto

Katy Perry Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson, professionally known by her stage name Katy Perry, was born on October 25, 1984 in Santa Barbara, California. She is a singer, songwriter, actress and an ambassador on one of the most popular companies of now, UNICEF. more.

Katy Perry has achieved so much in her career that she is just about to equal the King of Pop in terms of sales and record-breaking. She never gave up on her career and kept singing in spite of whatever haters may say about her, and that is just very inspiring. She's even making her own record label, where she can pass her own legacy to aspiring artists that have the very same dream that she had. Kathryn is also inspirational because she promotes happiness and just wants her audience to have fun, be happy and to believe in yourself, and I know she isn't the only artist to promote this but she is the most consistent at this. She teaches us that hard work may take so long but in the end you will reach your dreams. Go Katy, strong woman!

She is the best singer ever, I really thought that she was JUST a signer, but after I REALLY listened to her music and saw her movie, I understand now that she is not just a singer, she is a hero. She went through so much. I really REALLY love her music and she should be right under Taylor Swift! VOTE

Before I saw the new katy perry movie I just thought see was another very talented singer but after she is the most inspirational singer there is and everyone should be so proud of what she has achieved

I love katy perry too I think she is inspirational because like she loved russel brand (obviously) but she didn't just leave him or publicity she left him because she didn't want him in her lie any more so she is a true singer celeb everything in the world that she can be

P!nk Alecia Beth Moore known professionally as P!NK, is an American singer, songwriter, dancer and actress.

P! Nk saved my life, really. If it wasn't for most of her inspiring lyrics, I probably wouldn't even be as proud as I am of myself for not letting anyone chose what I'm like. I don't think it's fair that singers who aren't even inspiring are on this list... I looked at this list and I was set on looking for P! Nk's name. She's #36, but I think she should be higher. Her song "Perfect" has kept a lot of people around me from killing themselves. Her song "Raise Your Glass" has helped a lot of people from being ashamed of being an outcast or underdog. Her song "Try" has inspired so many people to get up and try, try, try until they succeed, even though they've already failed so many times. If it wasn't for her song, "Family Portrait" - a lot of kids with broken families would probably hate one of their parents. If it wasn't for her song "Stupid Girls," a lot more people would be exactly what she was singing about. Her song "Are We All We Are" is one of my favorites...It's one of her most ...more

The most motivating singer on this side of the universe. P! nk gets right down to the core of who I am, and brings me up. She is the one artist I can always fall back on when I'm going through anything.

I used to hate pop until I listened to Pink's music and don't forget kesha.. Pink is amazing! I love synth pop because of her!

P! Nk should be #1... She's so inspiring and all you really need to do to prove it is look up "P! Nk quotes"

His songs now are more inspiring than his past songs. I love his old songs better because they're catchy. His newer songs have meaning though. His song Love Yourself doesn't need to have an explanation as to why it is inspiring. It teaches you to love yourself. His song Purpose is inspiring because it teaches everyone that they have purpose. Everyone is someone else's purpose. Friends: His thought for this was that even if things between two people don't work out, it is possible to be friends. You just have to want to. Cold Water: He sends a message of comfort. If you're drowning in depression or anger, someone will be there to save you.

He taught me that even if something bad happens trust in god and better things will happen

He helped out a lot in other countries and has donated a lot of money to charities

He's made mistakes-yes but he has good intentions!
