The Contenders: Page 2

21 James LaBrie James LaBrie Kevin James LaBrie is a Canadian vocalist and songwriter, who is best known as the lead singer of the American progressive metal band Dream Theater.

James has a wide vocal range. He should be top 5 of all time.

22 Jared Leto Jared Leto

He has the BEST voice ever! Voice of an angel of God! He totally blows my mind when I hear him sing. He reinvents his voice and you never get tired of it! He has a voice that can be so peaceful and a voice (in a good way) that makes you wanna beat the crap out of the person that broke your heart. I'm so happy he's up here. He deserves it. I love this man!

He has a rasp, scream to a nice smooth sound... He has so much within him, he gets better on every record & with the experimentation with his music, so is the same with his voice, taking it to new/different strengths... Deserving for sure. He's an all rounder & always surprising with his vocal skill.

Great voice... He can sing, he can talk, he can whisper (i love it) and of course... He can shout as louder as he want... And make our heart start beat from the begining of any song! BABY.. YOU ROCK!

Voice from another world

23 David Phelps

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!

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.

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...

You should hear david phelps sing, you will be moved every time.

24 Benjamin Burnley Benjamin Burnley Benjamin Jackson Burnley IV is an American musician, composer, and producer, best known as the founder and frontman of the American rock band Breaking Benjamin.

Ben burnley has the mos powerful voice that I've ever breaking Benjamin is an amazing band and so is bens voice it's very powerful

How come Ben is at 23? Must be a bad dream or something.. Oh well. Gotta say Ben is such a talanted genius musician singer with a beast voice very very deep sometimes and so powerful, I can never stop listening to bens voice to be honest.. Its TOO god damn addicting.

Ben Burnley's voice is unparalleled. And combined with his songwriting skills, makes for the ultimate male vocalist, who should be ranked much higher!

Should be at least in 20-10 space

Listen to So Cold, Diary of Jane, Sooner or Later, Rain (2005), Breath, Polyamorous, Skin, Medicate all of those song and tell me if you can't sing them exactly the same as Ben did
Impossible

She's the new modern voice of singing. It's also good to keep in mind that she sings while performing rigorous dance moves yet still sounding the same! It's amazing. She always sings live too!

Just saw her in Belgrade, and it was stunning. Definitely irreplaceable, and the most powerful voice I've ever heard in my life. Long live Beyonce!

She has it all! Her voice is in a perfect control she never missed a note. I can't belive that gaga, rihanna and minaj are in this list... #BEYHIVE!

Consistent powerful controlled voice even while dancing.

26 Aretha Franklin Aretha Franklin Aretha Louise Franklin (born March 25, 1942) is an American singer–songwriter and musician. Franklin began her career singing gospel at her father, minister C. L.

Queen of soul. She sang for president and he cried. Was moving. No rivals. Need separate categories here. These don't mix well on 1 list. Bad comparisons. - Rosniac88

I'm sorry but come on just listen to think and you'll change sour mind

She at least is in the top 3!

Why is Aretha Franklin not top of the most powerful singing voice list?
Just listen to 'think' or 'say a little prayer for you'.

27 Morten Harket Morten Harket Morten Harket is a Norwegian musician, best known as the lead singer of the synthpop/rock band A-ha, which released ten studio albums and topped the charts internationally after their breakthrough hit "Take on Me" in 1985.

The greatest voice of all... The voice oft a-ha... So soft, so powerful... He's a very nice men, so sexy... The dream oft my sleepless nights

Even getting older his voice is still top. With a different sound-quality but boy does he have breath for long notes :-)

Crystal high notes as well as warm low one and you feel your soul hugged

Heard a live performance taped on YouTube and he was great. Still hit the notes. I thought it was not going to be as good because he's older and what not but he proved me wrong. - Rosniac88

28 Adam Lambert 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.

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.

He originally found success as the lead singer and lyricist for Deep Purple, and the original singer on the rock opera concept album Jesus Christ Superstar by Andrew Lloyd Webber, where Gillan had the leading role (Jesus Christ).

3rd place for him

32 Matt Barlow Matt Barlow Matthew 'Matt' Barlow is an American heavy metal singer and police officer. He was the lead singer for Iced Earth in the 1990s and 2000s. He is currently the lead singer for Ashes of Ares. After the September 11 terrorist attacks Matt Barlow decided to become a police officer and contribute to the "real ...read more.

This is really a powerful voice.Most of the singers above Matt don't actually have powerful voices - this list is again a list of people's favorite singers, meaning the most popular singers. How exactly the thin voice of Michael Jackson is more powerful than Pavarotti, Matt Barlow, Bruce Dickinson, Dio, Hansi Kursch, Aretha Franklin, and many more? - Metal_Treasure

33 Ronnie James Dio 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.

Dio has one of the most controlled and powerful voices Metal. Since Metal is one of the more technical (and misunderstood) genres of music I believe Dio should be way higher on this list.

Of all the singers on this list Dio is either the best, or the second best (Freddy Mercury is also one hell of a vocalist).

But to be honest, I can't even take this list seriously. I mean, Gaga on number 19? Really? As an artist she deserves respect but as a vocalist she sure doesn't belong on a list of most POWERFUL singing voices.

Ronnie James Dio, the most powerful voice in metal, at 13?
Listen to Heaven and Hell and tell me why isn't he on the top of the list. Other guys that deserve to be higher are Freddie Mercury, Myles Kennedy and Steve Perry(Aw, c'mon! You may not like him but he does have a great voice. )

Some guys that deserve to be on this list are Roger Daltrey and Paul Rodgers(Really Great voices. Belong in the top 10. But never given the credit they deserve. )

I have never heard a more powerful voice than Ronnie James Dio! I can never get enough of any of his music mostly because of his voice! For those who don't like him there is definitely something wrong with your ears!

Dio belongs at the top. 29 won't do.

35 Janis Joplin Janis Joplin Janis Joplin (1943-1970) was an American singer who rose to fame as the main singer of acid band Big Brother and the Holding Company. She was known for her eccentric hippie style and psychedelic rock music.

Janis is the best female singer of all time. Powerful voice.

The only reason she isn't no. 1 in this list is because you have not seen her perform. Listen to her and you will the fire burning inside you.

Graham Bonnet is a very very good singer with amazingly powerful voice.
Have a listen to Rainbow, Alcatrazz or Michael Schenker Group and you'll see.
Can't believe he wasn't even on this list! He should be in top 5.

One of the loudest voices ever (Rainbow - All night long) - Metal_Treasure

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. - Rosniac88

John Lennon is so much better than Rihanna he writes his own songs and doesn't use auto-tune!
