Singers with the Most Powerful Singing Voice
The Top Ten
Please listen to this "VOICE" from God! If you've not heard of this wonderful tenor & human being there is truly no way of comparing him to anyone above him on this list. He could choose to sing any genre of music he wanted to but he chooses to sing Christian Gospel music. Others have beautiful voices & they have their specific genres they sing but I love that he says with Christian music all genres are open to you! He has been singing his heart out & working on his craft mostly unseen & unheard of in a secular society. So sad because when he sings so many are transported straight to Heaven. David Phelps is truly one of a kind. If anyone doubts this they have only to watch him sing The Dream!
David Phelps has such power in his voice, it feels as if he's a speeding freight train, carrying you along on the lyrics, and the notes he hits, plays within, and carries on for breathless moments, leave you with chills, proclaiming "whew! ", as you slowly shake your head in awe and amazement, often with misty eyes, at the experience you've just had. He leaves you wanting more, yet you're completely satisfied with all he's given. Till next time...
Because he is Christian singer / songwriter he is so underrated. Been alive for a long time and heard all the singers listed but David is the only singer that I've ever heard that has the strength, emotion and pure voice that takes me somewhere I've never been before. Not the crisp clean voice of josh groban but so so much more.
I'm so proud of him. Can listen to music all day long. Love himV 194 Comments
Rob Halford of Judas priest has a much stronger voice than anyone on this list. He can reach 6 octaves. Why is he not on this list. He blows everyone on here out of the water. Before anyone tries to dispute this fact look up Judas priest dreamer deceiver. Your welcome
Freddie mercury is much better nobody has gotten higher vocals than him
Rhydian is a super person, with the most wonderful voice imaginable - he gives you goose bumps! Full of emotion, and can literally sing anything. He would make singing the telephone directory seem like a masterpiece.
I LITERALLY THOUGHT THAT RHYDIAN ROBERTS WAS GORDON RAMSAY! LOLV 9 Comments
Amazing. The most powerful, beautiful voice ever. Every song came with meaning. Listen to... "Somebody to Love" or the best example, "Bohemian Rhapsody". "We are the Champions"... You name any Queen song, and there's meaning and power behind it. Freddie was the greatest singer to walk this planet. He's my hero! Freddie Mercury had a killing disease and still performed to the day he was deceased from HIV/AIDS. Unlike some singers who call in sick from a minor cold of small fever. He never had his voice distorted to sound better. He was just naturally talented with his God-given voice.
Rest In Peace dear Freddie Mercury.
Freddie Mercury like it or not! This is about the most powerful vocalists not your favorite. You have to put that aside and judge based on Quality, diversity, range and the impact their vocals have worldwithe. Queen are the 6th or 7th biggest selling artist of all time with a projection of 200 million albums sold worlwithe and a the best they can count definitely 150 million. Remember this was all before the digital age and they are still selling. Currently there are multiple commercials of his vocals with Queen in the USA alone. They are and were even bigger worldwithe. Google Currently using Under Pressure, Lays potato Chips is using Crazy little thing called love and I want it all on a Ford or Gm commercial and I have heard I want it all and of course we will Rock you. It's a known fact that Artists are on more commercials in other countries including actors etc... So you can imagine What Queen has going on. They have a hit musical that toured and is still running in London called ...more
The problem here is that the above votes are from the younger generation who sit at a hockey game singing along to "We will Rock You" and "We are the Champions. " They have no idea who the band Queen was let alone the powerhouse that was Freddie Mercury belting out the most amazing notes. I agree 100%, Queen's music was WAY before music became "hi-tech". Freddie's voice is REAL, not altered. Just watch him on DVD in concert.
HE HAS THE VOCAL RANGE OF AN OPERAV 69 Comments
Lennon and McCartney changed music forever. Very few people dispute that. But, this poll is about "powerful singing voices", not song writing or the ability to harmonize. Josh Groban however has an amazingly powerful voice. Everything he sings is pitch perfect and he always seems to have plenty of fuel to spare when he is belting out a song. He gets my vote.
he deserves #1 you raise me up he is very vey good
rhydian can be good but he can't race with josh groben
Josh Groban flows
His angelic voice DEFINES powerful. It defines amazing. It defines the best male voice ever. This man defines an angel sent down from heaven.
He is the most amazing singer on the face of the earth hism voice should be worshiped!V 11 Comments
She needs to be number one most definitely. Plus she has extremely incredible voice control. If you listen to her version of I Will Always Love You, then you'll see what I mean. I wish that I could sing like her and I'm a guy.
Whitney Houston should be number one. She has the most powerful voice of all time, and in her prime, she could blow anyone else out of the water! When she sang the Star Spangled Banner in 1991, that was the best National Anthem ever! AMAZING... Legendary!
Whitney Houston had always been a beautifully talented singer, yes she made some decisions that didn't have good results but she had always been a talented singer. And I agree that Whitney Houston was a very powerful singer
Houston we have a problemV 30 Comments
It's Mariah Carey, most number one singles... Ever. Not to mention longest #1 song on US charts... Ever. An incredible vocal range expanding 5 octaves... Yes 5 octaves and an impossible whistle register. Cristina has maybe a 4 octave vocal range... Just saying. Continuously comes out with incredibly popular songs.
I'm not a fan of her, but I'm trying to be objective. So, I would say that she has a very powerful singing voice and she is a great performer. Young people could learn a lot from her.
She has the voice of soaring beauty. While singing the low notes, she can shift to the high notes simultaneously.
THE BEST! UNDISPUTED!V 11 Comments
Michael was the most diverse singer until now. He could sing any genre in any scale. He had a tremendous vocal range with a very clear and highly resonating sound. He also had a rare ability to belt with extreme power. Were he was singing high notes with so much power others would just cease to sing and start to shout.
This post only covers a part of his performing skills... Which in my opinion really makes him the best performer of all time.
Michael is the best singer of all time!
he has an AMAZING voice, AMAZING music, he was an AMAZING person who we will NEVER be able to forget.
Thank you Mike for giving us the music that chanced our lifes!
Amazing singer. He should be at number 1. If you don't believe me, just listen to one of his songs. Billie Jean, Thriller, Stranger in Moscow. He died too young, unfortunately. God bless his soul.R.I.P. Michael. We love you. You shouldn't have gone so soon. We miss you.

Recently been discovering later live performances of a cover Elvis did called "hurt", my god man they are mostly RCA soundboard and bootleg. Does not seem to matter-----the almost unworldly immense talent and emotion still shine through all these years later----wow.
Weather you like his music or not, Elvis had a most amazing and unique voice. But this evaluation is about power. Listen to Elvis sing American Trilogy and then form your opinion. It will send chills up your spine.
He could sing every thing from gospel to rock and poured his hart into all that he sang the best hands down
He didn't write most of his songs. But still I appreciate his vocal skills. For a 50s singer, he has quite powerful voice. - zxmV 11 Comments
Just listen to Adam Lambert's powerful voice in perfect harmony with Queen during their EMA 2011 performance together.
How can Adam Lambert be ranked so low on this list at the moment? If his voice were any more powerful, it would register on the Richter Scale.
Electrifying voice. His range is amazing. His concerts are the only ones I go to. No other could come close to this mans unbelievable gift of voice and showmanship. Simply charming also
His voice is more powerful than most of the people on this list.V 16 Comments
I love Adele! She has such an amazing voice!
She has raw talent and that is all she basically needs to win my vote.
Listened to Rolling in the deep and Set fire to the rain over and over and can't get bored of it.
Listen to Rolling in the Deep, Someone Like You, etc. She's amazing and she has such a powerful voice. Adele's voice is amazing and strong! She's definitely my favorite!
34? What!? Adele has surpassed any and all expectation. She's soulful, sultry, and has a powerful grace that is untouchable.
Are you kidding me? She makes delicious Smoothies, trust.V 12 Comments
She had the most powerful voice among the other singers. Truly a powerhouse and can sing Anything!
145? Come on! With the movie Sing. She does voice over singing. Blew us away! Who made this list? I saw JLo on here. That's a joke right? Talk about auto tune. Britney spears? Lol and bruno Mars too, he's way too far down. Order is messed up bad.
really like his preformance in Milton Keynes in song The Little Things Give you away, but anyway my favourite song from Linkin Park is What I've Done, where you can hear Chester's amazing voice - anlp
Chester has the most powerful singing voice I think I have ever heard, both physically and emotionally. I've never heard a singer have the ability to scream as much as he has and yet still make me all emotional (Breaking the Habit). He is incredibly skilled and has a super powerful voice that can impact so many people!
His voice is more powerful than any other, I like Jared's too but he is nothing in comparison to Chester, he can scream the loudest and the longest. The Best Ever
He should be 1...most talented singer ever evolved... what is he doing on 10th...V 17 Comments
I am a great fan of Evanescence, and I believe her voice is more powerful than some of the people on the list! I mean, if you just listen to "Bring Me To Life" and "My Immortal," those songs just give me chills when I listen. Also, there is one other song from her that is very unique. "Haunted". Believe me. If you want a powerful voice, than Amy Lee is probably one of your greatest options. - DarkenedSparrow
Have you ever heard her... live? My god! How can she have such power in an
angelic voice at the same time? Amy your the best.
Amy has one of the most dynamic vocal ranges, can sustain notes just as long and loud as Whitney Houston. She may not be a pop princess, but she writes/composes her own music, not just lyrics. Her work with Evanesence is wonderful and her small solo projects are beautiful as well showcasing she isn't a one trick pony.
Clearly she is an angel.
She's great another power broker. - Rosniac88V 7 Comments
Just listen to Russian Roulette and tell me you can't hear her voice shaking with power and anxiety. Beautiful.
She is great you can listen to Disturbia or Umbrella of her to hear a special voice.
Live she is weak, on stage is where you find out if someone can actually sing.
Love HerV 3 Comments
I think Celine should be number one because she has got the most beautiful voice I have ever heard nobody can out sing her she blows everybody out of the water and she's just a really great and awesome person I wish I could meet her in person and go to one of her shows she as always been one of my favorites.
Amazing voice. Has been low profile lately due to her style of singing fading for awhile but is making a comeback. Has an excellent voice which can't be denied. By the way there are three people in the top five that I have never heard of including number one. : )
Awesome singer, with a very strong voice. Her throat can play any tune. When she sings in a higher voice she don't make mistakes like others do.
She did Titanic song in 1 take. She's controlled and full of power. You go girl. - Rosniac88V 16 Comments
Sorry Arnel fans, but Steve Perry was and is the greatest frontman journey has been blessed with. The mans voice touches the deepest part of your soul and leaves you in a beautiful trance that you never want to come out of! Listen to his song mother father and be blown away by his powerful range, and listen to his song WHEN YOU LOVE A WOMAN. This song will tug at your heart as you try to hold back your tears! SP is a god! - cutlets29
Steve is THE most powerful, passionate, emotionally moving singer in rock. There are hundreds of examples. In I Stand Alone when Steve sings "Take me in your heart" it is impossible not to. Listening to him is pure ecstasy. - CatAnna
Steve Perry is amazing. He has one of the best, if not the best voice ever. His voice is one I never get tired of and can recognize anywhere. Steve is the best at what he does. From the moment I first heard his voice I was hooked. There will never be another Steve Perry!
Love his voice. Another icon of powerful, immaculate vocals. He rocks. - Rosniac88V 10 Comments
Lady Gaga is a talented woman with a voice that compliments many styles of music. She is a classically trained pianist who can play ballads with the best of them. She writes all her songs and can play them with just the piano alone. Her duet with Tony Bennet speaks for itself. Aside from her domination of the music industry, Lady Gaga is expanding her talent into the political and social world and she has proved to be an unstoppable force.
This is about the most powerful singing voice which means who has the highest level of emotions that an artist can put out in a single note. Lady Gaga can put her emotions to her voice, specially bravery, happiness, pride, and sadness.
Lady gaga has a very strong voice that is capable of many things. She could change the world with it. When she performs she really gets the crowds attention.. He he gaga please marry me x_x
Lady Gaga has one hell of a voice that's for sure!V 11 Comments
Very very good singer! And she kills it when she sings! Her voice is very very likable and Christina is so beautiful! Her hit genie in a bottle really had a female lead! So does Your Body. And she also expresses a lot of things in her songs such a Circle and Woohoo! Wish this amazing powerful singer good luck with her Career! Keep singing! Woohoo
Honestly #19 is SO not good for this singer. Sure she has messed up before, who doesn't. But there is no arguing that this young artist has one of the ABSOLUTE BEST and STRONGEST voices in the industry today.
Man, nobody holds a candle to her. Best female singer ever! If I could sing like anybody, Christina would be it.
Christina Has an amazing Voice, definitely a powerful one.V 24 Comments
