The sole purpose of his body is to contain the word's most distinctive, unique and powerful voice.

Yes. Thanks for posting this. Most fall into a genera... A style that is heard over and over. Vitas has a unique quality I have not heard. I would group him with Bjork who also has a very unique voice. Thanks again for sharing this artist.

Just wow. Anyone that has never heard this young man needs to look him up right now. He can reach higher than any female I have ever heard and his falsetto is so high, it's eerie. No one on Earth like him.

6 Sarah Brightman Sarah Brightman Sarah Brightman is an English classical crossover soprano, actress, musician, songwriter, conductor, and dancer.

I've always loved Sara's beautiful voice. She has one of the most unique soprano voices I've ever heard. I have all of her albums and love every one. She is my favorite female artist of any I've ever heard. Plus she is down right beautiful. Donald Braswell is my favorite tenor, in fact, to me, he is the greatest male performing artist of today. Like Sara, he has a beautiful unique voice and the most handsome man I've ever seen. I would love to see these two do a duet together. What great sounds that would make plus both such delicious eye candy.

Sarah Brightman has the most angelic voice the believe I have ever heard. She is just so amazing. I could listen to her forever. Her voice is unique and unmatched by any other person alive!

There's no one like you. On of her songs that fits her pretty well. Her voice is so beautiful and unique, there will never be anyone like her ever again. Why? Because her voice is so angelic and it touches everyone when she starts to sing

Sarah brightman's uniqueness comes from the way she can switch between her classical and pop voices. Most singers can't manage one style, but she can go effortlessly from classical to pop.

This guy is the reason that I love rock music so much. His voice is beautifully unique, completely unlike any other I've ever heard in my life, and his song writing was just amazing. RIP, Mr. Mercury. You'll always be in our hearts.

What?! Not #1? Not even top 10! Oh my god... Where are the music, real, listeners? This guy isn't a voice, he is a legend! Unique voice and presence on stage!

Most unique voice is something Freddie Mercury definitely deserves to win. Nobody could sing like Mercury because he is just that different. If anybody could find a singer that could come even close to singing the song 'Show Must Go On' I will pay them 100$. It's simply that impossible to pull off unless you are Freddie Mercury. - metalmaiden

It's just so crazy to imagine how he sang, to pictures and videos of him, and knowing that he's dead. It's so heart wrenching.

His voice is wonderful, amazing and easily distinguished.
His voice covers a wide range, even doing a cover of "I Have Nothing" by Whitney Houston with his band mates, no doubt a challenging song to sing.
Furthermore, he was initially tone deaf and had to work really really hard for his voice to become what it is today.

You can distinguish jaejoong's voice easily, because his voice is so unique.
You can feel different emotions when you listen to his music. He is definitely a great artist.

He has the most angelic, unique husky voice I've ever heard. Not only that, Kim Jaejoong was able to deliver the emotions very well effortlessly, unlike other singers. It's a very RARE voice and once you've heard it, you'll be smitten day and night.

He has a gifted voice

The singer who is in the Guinness Book of records for the uniqueness of the voices five octaves is not in the top five?! What kind of vote?

Although I prefer his songs as an A-ha member, I agree that his voice is deep and eerie

Alice in Chains rose to international fame as part of the grunge movement of the early 1990s. ...read more.

His voice was the most unique, beautiful, soulful voice ever. I have never listened to another singer who has touched my very being the same way he has. I am so thankful I had the chance to know him through his music but so sad it was his demons that brought out that surreal beautiful voice that would reach down and touch your soul. Absolute best voice ever.

Layne Staley/God with a mic - his vocal style is one of the most copied in rock, next to Kurt Cobain. What makes Layne so special though, is that no one could sing as powerful as his chest range. All those wannabes could do is copy his snarls and twang but no one could really sing as powerful as Layne. And he could sing with that intensity and power... live! You only see that type of talent once in a lifetime.

To me, he's the most underrated vocalists of our time, next is Mike Patton. You can tell by his 24th spot in here that his talents are not given due credit. Kids today may not be aware of this, but a lost of vocalists (formed after the Seattle era) are trying to sound like Layne.

Very recognizable vocalist. You couldn't resist turning up the radio even if you tried. Just the urgency combined with the raw emotions in his voice alone made you stop and listen to what he was singing. He gave everything his all in his performances. R.I.P. layne Thomas Staley, from my side of Washington to yours.

Sarah Geronimo has her unique singing and speaking voice quality. I would bet you would also like to hear how she laughs, contagious!

She just don't sing, she gives emotion & message of the song. That's why when you hear her voice, you'll know it's hers, full of passion and emotions. There is something in her that makes you want more. Sarah Geronimo rocks!

Whenever she sings, it's as if you can feel the lyrics... It's always coming from her heart... So sincere... So moving... And her voice is distinct...

I can't believe he is so down. His voice is best in the world. Ill recognize his voice even if I dead. He is not good he is best.
And he is best singer I ever heard

Chester definitely has a unique voice unlike any other artist. I'd definitely be able to recognize Chester's voice without truly knowing if I'm listening to one of his songs. His soft voice is something you don't hear many artists pull off with such emotion and beauty, and when he gets gritty and dirty his screams totally come off unique as hell. It's as if he's screaming, but singing at the same time, like two different voices at once. This list isn't about how good your voice is, but how unique it is. Chester does both. He definitely deserves to be within the top ten at least.

I recognize his voice anywhere. No one can sing, scream or sound like Chester in anyway possible.

Song of an Angel and Scream of the devil...such an amazing talent and gift he left us with his voice

I can always pick out Kyuhyun's voice in all of Super Junior's songs. In my opinion, he is one of their three best singers, and I don't think anyone would disagree with that. His voice is very unique and to be honest, I think he was the reason I first started to like Super Junior's music.

My favorite male Asian voice! So unique that I always recognize him among a crowd of singers. Really hope to see his solo album someday

He's my favorite band member from Super Junior! His voice is very unique apart from the rest of the band members. He's recognizable as well. His voice is very smooth and it can go strong and it just melts you when you hear it. It's very soft as well and he does have talent.

Well he should be on top. He has best voice kyuhyun'a voice is above all singers. His voice is really precious!

Yeah, in my opinion Amy Lee has the most distinctive voice of anybody I've ever heard. It's sort of throaty, in a good way, and very very powerful. Her voice just really stands out to me. Every time I hear it I go, " it's Amy! " and I have to stop and listen to the song.
And she sounds just as good live as on her studio recordings - even without artificial touch ups on-stage and all that jazz.

Avril Lavigne beat Amy? Whoahh Amy Lee has one of the most unique strongest female vocals, perfect pitch all the time

Excuse me, Chester Bennington? Yes he is an unique singing but Amy Lee is different. Her voice is very RARE AND UNIQUE! Amy is should be in top 10.

Go Amy! You're is the most unique voice ever. She is the best. Sorry Chester!

Her voice is most unique, while you will recognize her if she sings in English, Swedish, or other artists with your eyes closed. I gives you warmth, emotion and a lot of love! - txrednosereindeer

So deep and rare and pure. Swedish singers are just brilliant! You only get this kind of perfection in two other singers, Agnetha Faltskog and Julie Andrews.

Amazing voice! Her range of notes is so low, it has a charming quality, and coupled with Agnetha Faltskog's somewhat higher voice, is perfect.

Love her! She is incredible and she can sing really low and really high. Just listen to "I wonder" and you'll understand why this woman is business!

Umm... People, read the title of this list... That's right, most unique voices, not most popular singer.

I apologize to everyone else on this list, but I HAVE to vote for Serj Tankian. He does have an amazingly unique voice, and I know for a fact that anyone who has ever listened to has voice, then heard it again later, in an entirely unfamiliar song, would know instantly that it was him singing. I had only ever heard him sing in System of a Down, but was listening to Pandora a while back, and I heard his voice. I was shocked, because I know every System of a Down song, and this was none of them! I checked the song title and artist name just to be sure, and sure enough, it was Serj!

Unique, inspiring and amazing! Serj's singing is so individual and some of the noises he can make just add to what makes him so unique!

I challenge every singer who reads this to try and sing like Serj. You won't be able to. - Metal_Potato

This list is a joke.. I haven't even heard of half the people on it so there's no way I'd instantly recognize a song of theirs.. And even most of the ones I have heard of are not particularly unique... Axl Rose for all he isn't the best vocalist on this list, I would say has the most unique sound.

Axl rose has an awesome voice it is literally impossible to mistake his voice for anyone else's his voice is so hardcore and meaningful it actually makes you want to listen to his songs whether you like rock music or not
by the way why is Rihanna number 27 on this list? Why is she even ON this list it is most unique voice not whose voice could mentally corrupt your brain the fastest if it was she would be right underneath Justin bieber.

Axl has one of the most distinctive voices I have ever heard. If it were up to me he would be no. 1 on this list. I've never heard anyone sing like him him in that sexy, screechy, two voices at once style... I love you Axl..

Axl has the most unique voice and recognisable voice on this list besides Freddie Mecury. He should be way higher. - MattAffterburner

29 Billie Joe Armstrong Billie Joe Armstrong Billie Joe Armstrong is an American musician, singer, songwriter and actor who is best known as the lead vocalist, primary songwriter, and guitarist of the punk rock band Green Day, which he co-founded with Mike Dirnt.

I've never heard a more different yet good voice. It's not classically amazing but every artist I have ever heard I've heard a pretty good copy of. But Billie? No chance no-one can sing like him it's so different! It's incredible!

He can sing in different voices. His range is large. Also, his voice is unique. He not only sings in Green Day but also Pinhead Gunpowder, The Network and Foxboro Hot Tubs. He started singing when he was just a kid! That's wonderful

Billie's voice is probably one of the most unique voices in music. He is the only person my dad can consistently identify correctly, proving his voice is very unique. Anyone who's heard him can recognize him instantly. Billie's voice is so distinct that, after Green Day redefined punk music in the 90s, the dozens of bands inspired by Dookie tried their best to imitate Billie's particular style of singing and memorable voice.

How is he not even in the top 500?!?! When you hear Billie Joe's voice, you know that you are listening to Green Day. The only reason that people don't think his voice is unique is because a bunch of singers try to copy it and fail. - Revrad

John Lennon should be way higher on this list. His voice is so unique and amazing all he has to do is sing for a couple of seconds and you know its Lennon.

Wrote inspiring lyrics as well as having a unique and powerful voice. I can't believe he only got 2% of the votes. I really think he should be near the top of the list.

31 Robert Plant Robert Plant Robert Anthony Plant is an English musician, singer, and songwriter best known as the lead singer and lyricist of the rock band Led Zeppelin.

The singer for the greatest rock band of all time. His screechy yet somehow enjoyable voice is immediately recognizable. God I love the Zep...

I see at the top every comment has to do with how beautiful and sweet her voice is. Guess what, plenty of singers have beautiful and sweet voices. Know one could yell and change their tones like Robert Plant. So many people have tried, none have managed. Come on people... Immigrant Song? Black Dog? Can't beat that voice as far as uniqueness goes... You CAN'T.

Whenever I hear a Led Zeppelin cover band, the first three things I think are: 1. The drumming isn't as hard. 2. The solos aren't as awesome. 3. THAT GUY DOESN'T SOUND ANYTHING LIKE ROBERT PLANT. Robert Plant's voice is something from another world. Nobody can duplicate that voice. He can scream like nobody else, listen to Dazed and Confused, and he is very great at soft singing, too, listen to The Rain Song. My favorite singer from my favorite band.

I don't have the right words to describe Plant's vocals. Just listen to "Dazed and Confused", "What Is and What Should Never Be", "Since I've Been Loving You", "Four Sticks", "Rock and Roll", everything off of Houses of the Holy, "Custard Pie", and "In My Time of Dying". They have some of the most mystical vocals ever recorded and it's all this one man. - Aweso

He is amazing live and on the studion records. You can feel the power of his voice when at a concert. Completely blows me away each time I listen to muse.

I am no Muse fan but I have to admit Matt Bellamy had a unique, beautiful voice. Britney's crappy voice should not be in the list, she was never be unique or anything other than just an ordinary pop singer. - Pyansickness

She may not have the strongest vocal ability in the world, but her voice is one of the most recognized in the industry, as well as her power as a female and as a performer, Listen to songs like 'let go' on youtube ( an unreleased demo ) as proof of this, as well as her fully matured vocal at the age of Nine. Need more proof?

Biggest selling female artist of the decade with over 100 million Albums sold and 80 million singles, in fifteen years.

She may not have a wide range, but I'd recognize her voice anywhere I hear it. She used to have a really powerful, deep voice WAY back in the day, though; check out the video that got her signed. Her record label thought her deep voice wouldn't sell well, hence her current somewhat pitchy, nasally voice.

Hands down, I KNOW it's her when I listen to a song. Her style is also pretty unique, I can hardly think of ANY reasons at all to argue with what I just wrote although there are more reasons to SUPPORT how unique she is

Because she's amazing. Duh!
She has a really distinct and strong voice. She deserves to be up there with the rest of those people.

Why is she even here? She's awful and she's a poser. - henry_danger_is_great

36 M. Shadows M. Shadows Matthew Charles Sanders, better known by his stage name M. Shadows, is an American musician, best known as the lead vocalist, songwriter and founding member of the American metalcore/alternative metal band Avenged Sevenfold.

He has such a raspy and harsh singing voice at times, and yet he can also sing so beautifully that you wouldn't guess it. He is honestly the exact example of a voice you can recognize and realize who it is regardless of whether you've heard the song before, and even if you haven't heard a lot of Avenged Sevenfold's music.

If you hear his voice, you know why I voted this guy. His voice is so unique, nobody can copy that. He is the best screamer, but he can sing some peaceful songs beautiful too. Everyone need to vote this guy, because this guy is a winner! A Hero, and a really good MUSICIAN!

M Shadows has a great, unique voice and there's no doubt in that! He should be higher rated! He can sing any type of songs and his voice is so easy to listen to.

Elitists are avoiding him,right?

The man who has the most wide vocal range in music history. Seriously, do any of you even know how many voices this guy can make and apply them in live performances perfectly? If you don't, then that clearly means you voted in this list not knowing A THING of "unique" voices...

Kyo has absolutely the most amazing vocal range of any human being the world! I don't think there is anyone that can compete with him! KYO FOR THE WIN! - madameRed

I DON'T KNOW WHY IS KYO SO DOWN HERE. IF YOU ARE READING THIS AND HAVE NOT YET LISTENED TO HIM, STOP EVERYTHING YOU ARE DOING AND LISTEN TO :MACABRE, VINUSHKA AND DIFFERENT SENSE. YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT. HE IS THE BEST SINGER OF THE WHOLE UNIVERSE!

38 Hyde (L'arc~en~ciel)

One of the most unique voices that you will ever heard and also changing from low pitch to high pitch with falsettos is very hard to do. If you fail to do it, it will destroy your vocal chords and you cannot ever speak again unless you are lucky. - ronluna

Hyde has to be the best singer ever... He's voice is so different from most of singers, it's so unique... , I bet you've never heard something like that before... When he sings hitomi no jyuunin at the smile tour, wow that was one of his best performances ever... He's amazing, simply the best singer for me...

The best, the most unique and the most flexible voice - ronluna

His voice is as if a Magic!

Unique? HaH! Try mind boggling, from another planet incredible, Heaven is missing one of its angels, drop dead, blow your socks off beautiful... Yeah, those come close to adequately describing the vocals of Miss Jacqueline Marie Evancho.

Routinely brings tears to the eyes of all listeners.. Her waveform patterns are unlike any other singer.. Her voice is unique.. It has been said that her voice is the only thing that dulls the pain of some chronic sufferers..

One of the few singers who can really sing "The Star Spangled Banner" properly, on-key, with all the words, and without lip-synching. I'd say that's unique.

Garbage! She has a soprano voice. Nothing unique about that.

Her voice is so unique. I could recognize it anywhere, and it is never tiring to listen to. Her songs are unique in themselves, and the way she sings them is so great. Adele is amazing

Adele has a very unique, recognizable, and enjoyable voice. I have yet to hear anyone else who can sound like her.

It's one thing to have a great strong voice and another thing to have a great unique voice. Many recorded singers, have great strong voices but in my opinion, Adele is one of only a handful that have both a unique voice as well as a strong voice. I can think of two other singers that have very unique voices. Sam cooke and Julia Carpenter. I can't understand why they're not on this list.

Adele is definitely the best! She can hit them high pitches easily like they were nothing! You really need to listen to "Hello" and "Rolling in the Deep"

This is insulting Gee should be right at the top! Come on guys! His voice is just so amazing words can't describe how much I love his voice. It's so pure and I could listen to it wherever, whenever and forever. He has such a recognizable voice and I could pick it out even if he was just humming in the background, this man is truly amazing and bonus sexy too!
Proud Member Of the MCRmy

First thing, why is Gee only at 35!?! His voice is amazing. I could literally listen to it all day, everyday. I could pick his voice from anywhere, no matter what. He has the most recognizable voice I have ever heard. Gerard Way is absolutely phenomenal. He should be in at least top 10. My Chemical Romance is my favourite band of all time, and always will be.

ONLY 35!?!? Nowadays you can't pick out who is who out of all of these new rock bands. I've always been able to pick out Gerard's voice! Now, My Chemical Romance is my favorite band but it is because of this fact. Gerard's voice is phenomenal and he should be in at least the top 15, but what do I know?

Gerard Way has one of themost recognizable voices in music and he has so much emotion in his voice listen to welcome to the black parade or cancer the cracks in his voice will just give you goosebumps. Or if you listen to this is how I dissappear no one has a falsetto even close to his it sounds so different from any artist to date. Finally to top it off he is extremely versatile he's able to sing anything from heavy pop punk and alternative rock to contemporary pop music.

42 Rob Halford Rob Halford Robert John Arthur "Rob" Halford is an English singer and songwriter, who is best known as the lead vocalist for the Grammy Award-winning heavy metal band Judas Priest and famed for his powerful wide ranging operatic voice.

Hey, ever listened to Painkiller, Dreamer Deceiver, Victim of Changes, Resurrection... Etc. Etc.? People who voted for Michael Jackson, Sarah Brightman, Britney Spears and the rest of those pop singers up there, who has never possessed any great vocal quality at all and got popular through lyrics and dance routines (excepting MJ perhaps), you really don't know what the term "Unique Voice" means. COME ON, Rob Halford had a 6 octave vocal range and still has over 4 and a half octave at the age of 60+! He can sing, he can scream, he can growl, he can hit the extreme highest note[painkiller, Resurrection etc. ] could hit extremely dark low notes[Dreamer Deceiver, Dying to meet you etc. ], could hit all kinds of note in one song with strong vibrato [e.G. victim of Changes, Dreamer Deceiver] and people actually gives the number one position to someone else?! Rob Halford had, has and will always have the most unique voice in music history. Anybody thinking otherwise... Please please just ...more

The fact that Rob is this low and Lemmy is 99th just shows how wrong this list is. These two voices innovated the style of metal and just by listening to them you can hear their uniqueness. How is Adele's voice more unique than this? It isn't. That's how.

Since you can't change the twisted minds of the pop music sheep, I'll take this opportunity to salute one of my top three vocalists...ever. I first heard this guy in 1976 " Sinner" and have been a fan ever since.

METAL GOD FOR THE WIN!

43 Shirley Bassey Shirley Bassey Dame Shirley Veronica Bassey is a Welsh singer whose career began in the mid-1950s, best known both for her powerful voice and for recording the theme songs to the James Bond films Goldfinger, Diamonds Are Forever, and Moonraker.

Amongst a sea full of POP Sopranos who dance their way through a number, Shirley Bassey stands out as a combo Alto/Mezzo Pitched Vocalist with powerful belting capabilities who can simply walk up to a microphone, and SING! Those in the audience are mesmerized as Bassey's body, arm, and hand movements are at one with her tremendous vocal ability and it brings each performance to another level. She IS a very unique performer!

This is really one of the unique voices! Along with Sarah Vaughan and Ella Fitzgerald, you can't forget this voice.

43, Are you f**kin' kidding me! She at least deserves top 20, the deep voice and thick vibrato this woman has is like no other! The only other distant comparison to Shirley is Amy Winehouse, and I stress DISTANT comparison! If you hear Shirley once, her voice will forever be engrained in your mind, it is literally unforgettable.

44 Ville Valo Ville Valo Ville Hermanni Valo is a Finnish singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, best known as the lead vocalist and main songwriter of the Finnish gothic rock band HIM.

His voice is definitely unique. I like his wide range of vocal, and his low tone vocal is just amazing. Not to mention his screaming, falsetto, and the way he sing songs are very honest.

His voice is something different than any another singers voice. Nobody can compare with him. He has so special voice and it makes him unique. He's different, so different than other rockers

Unique singer, great songwriter and handsome dude. Too many gifts just for one man.

His voice is very unique..he should be 1st

Such a beautiful voice for one so young. To hear her in person brings tears to your eyes.

I would recognize her voice anywhere.

Anyone with that deep of a voice when talking and so high pitched when singing is impressive. But JBJ is truly impressive.
