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...

Aaliyah should be in the top 5. She has a voice like no other - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

23 Mary J. Blige Mary J. Blige

I think mary j blige should be number 1 because she has the grearest voice I have ever heard she can never be duplicated and I love her songs no one can make a song come alive like mary j can she is my idol.

Mary J. Blige has a Four Octave Vocal Range and can hit high notes in the Baritone Range and can sing all of her songs live really splendid, Mary J. Blige has a strong voice and I think her songs fit her style and her songs work for her, and Mary J. Blige she can sing without a doubt great voice.

Mary is the R&B Queen. She was the one who redefined R&B, bridging the gap between Hip Hop and Soul with a new swing of what we call contemporary R&B today.

How is she number ten
