Most Unique Singing Voices

The Contenders: Page 6

101 Dennis DeYoung

Tommy Shaw didn't even do much singing for Styx. I wouldn't know his voice if I heard it. Even if it is unique, it's not well known.

Tommy Shaw should be on this list. Even #1! But DeYoung is the only one I can recognize in this list

102 Polly Scattergood

Wasn't she Underdog's girlfriend?

103 Anna Graceman
104 Iggy Azalea Iggy Azalea Amethyst Amelia Kelly, known professionally as Iggy Azalea, is an Australian rapper, singer, songwriter, and model.

Iggy Azalea doesn't count as a singer.

She is not unique at all. She's just trying to sound black (sorry if that's offensive).

105 Mariah Carey Mariah Carey Mariah Carey is an American singer, songwriter, record producer, and actress. She won 5 Grammys, got her documentary movie "Glitter" and also one of the biggest best-selling women in the music industry. ...read more.

Mariah Carey, most definitely. Even if you don't like her, you'll recognize the voice when you hear it. There's no other person alive who can sing like Mariah. The Most unique I've ever heard.

Talk about manipulation. The lady can make her voice sound like anything she wants and sings in a vast amount of genres. From RNB, to Pop, to Hip hop, to jazz, to reggae etc. She's always on key and sounds just just as amazing, if not better, when she sings live. MC all the way, baby.

I would have to say that there may be some bias pertaining to the types of song sung, the genres dabbled with and the all round popularity of a singer, when I view this list and how the people have voted. I for one think that Mariah Carey has an undeniably unique voice. I quite frankly would vote for another singer if this was a list about the greatest singer's of all time, but this is about the quality of a voice and how unique it is, and so my vote goes to this woman right here.

ANYONE can recognize this voice.

Mariah's voice is distinguishable in the first few seconds of a song. I understand that there may be better singers out there, but for me it's Mariah all the way. It's not only her various and unique tones - silky whispers, husky and dark low notes, bell-like belts that ring with resonance, whistle notes that range from soft and airy to piercing - but her incredible style that is so incredibly indentifiable. Her vocal runs are so inventive (songs like "Vision of Love, " "Forever, " and "Lead the Way" come to mind...). Okay, some people may not like melismata, but I enjoy it (when not overused, which is something Mariah is not, in my opinion, guilty of! Peace!

Mariah Carey must be at number one of the list. No other singers and no one can sing like Mariah. Her voice range is amazing, over the world.

106 Matt Bellamy Matt Bellamy Matthew James "Matt" Bellamy is an English musician, singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and compose most famous for being the main vocalist in alternative rock band Muse.

Why o why is my matty all the way down here? His voice is not just vocals but another instrument in the band! There is no way anyone could replace him and come even close to sounding like him. 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

Matt bellamy voice is so strong and sexy. It is also unique and different. I love matt bellamy. I love MUSE! They are one of the greatest bands!

Best high pitched singer

People just put their favorites on every list whether it's appropriate or not. This list is for unique and not cookie cutter. Ho Hum!

I hear nothing at all unique. Very boring actually, for me anyway. Get nothing!

She has an okay voice, but it's not very unique.

No one cares if you don't like her, this is about unique voices! Not best singers! Thank you for off.

111 Alex Gaskarth

His voice is priceless I could listen to him sing all day! His voice is defiantly unique.

It is very easy to identify all time low just by his voice

112 Lemmy Kilmister Lemmy Kilmister Ian Fraser Kilmister, known as Lemmy, was an English musician, singer and songwriter who founded and fronted the rock band Motörhead.

Really? Lemmy needs to be higher on this list! Sure, he may not be the most beautiful or melodic singer in the world but his greasy voice was perfect for motörhead! And the list is about uniqueness right? I've never heard anyone even close to sounding like Lemmy!

113 Patsy Cline Patsy Cline Patsy Cline was born Virginia Patterson Hensley on September 8, 1932, in Winchester, Virginia. She became a professional country singer in the 1950s, and became one of the most important artists in American music history. Patsy died on March 5, 1963, in a plane crash in Camden, Tennessee.

How an earth can she be this far down on the list. Know your musical history people.

One of the best singers of the past! Why is she even out of the top 10!?! Oh my.

114 Joshua Radin
115 Gladys Knight Gladys Knight
116 Menowin Menowin

Menowin has a fantastic and absolutely unique voice, that you hear right out of millions of singers. He can sing 5 octaves and his voice is so emotional that it goes straight to your heart. He is totally awesome!

117 Adam Gontier Adam Gontier Adam Wade Gontier is a Canadian musician and songwriter. He is the lead singer, rhythm guitarist and main songwriter for Saint Asonia, but is best known as the former lead singer, rhythm guitarist and main songwriter of the Canadian rock band Three Days Grace.

Adam has one of the best voices today.. His range is amazing for a guy singer (just look up his cover of Jar of Hearts by Christina Perri), and he's able to add a raspy growl to his voice on command. Whenever I hear him I get chills.

How in hell is Adam Gontier 118th? He should be #1! His voice is truly unique and combined with actual capability to sing, I think he has one of the best voices of our time.

Don't know how you retards vote or on what basis but when it's about real deal he sings high in that creaky or grit voice which is why Adams's Adam, non of the singers could copy the singing style of his neither the old legendary bands. He used to give goosebumps to the current bands till he was in TDG... No competition for Gontier"_i_"

I love this guy's voice. The way he sings is just incredible. He can go from screaming or singing gently. God I just love Adam's voice.

119 Cyndi Lauper Cyndi Lauper

She has the cutest voice and a very good soprano! She should be rewarded more in the 80's, the fact that she had been through many troubles! She doesn't do any sexual content in videos too

Unique and soulful voice! - caybatha

You ARE ALL CRAZY... CYNDI HAS THE BEST AND MOST UNIQUE SINGING VOICE THE INDUSTRY HAS EVER SEEN. LISTEN TO ANY OF HER SONGS "TIME AFTER TIME", "SHE BOB" OR "TRUE COLORS" AND YOU'LL AGREE WITH ME 100%.
CYNDI IS ALSO THE MOST UNDER APPRECIATED SINGER EVER.

Should be in the top ten. World famous and who else sounds like her?
