Aaliyah should be higher on this list. I love Aaliyah, It's just so sad we never got to hear more of her beautiful voice as she was taken from us, Her voice is like silk, so smooth and soft, I could kick back and Listen to Aaliyah every day, We miss You Princess Rest In Peace.x

I would just like to point out the fact that one of the most beautiful voices that has ever graced this planet is under Justin BEIBER on this list, this list is a joke...

I've always thought Aaliyah was amazing! Beyonce's cool, but I prefer Aaliyah any day. But sadley her life was taken August 25, 2001 in Marsh Harbor, The Bahamas. REST IN PARADISE AALIYAH. WE STILL LOVE YOU!

Such a weak voice, I dunno why people like it so much - DaWyteNight
