Top 10 Best Female Belters

The Top Ten
1 Barbra Streisand Barbara Joan Streisand, known professionally as Barbra Streisand, is an American singer, songwriter, actress, and filmmaker.

I was really impressed by the first time to listen to "Somewhere". Her voice technique is amazing, approximately perfect, her rhythm is crystal clear, pure and angelic. Even though, it is not dramatic and resonance like Whitney's and she can't use whistle like Mariah Carey, her musical technique is the best. Every note is controlled perfectly. Her belting is long, powerful and somewhat resonance, it's not annoying like Christina (she is good but always slaying, growling her voice and does not have a proper technique). If you like listening belting songs, why don't try to listen to the endings of two these songs: "Somewhere" and "A piece of sky".

2 Whitney Houston Whitney Elizabeth Houston (August 9, 1963 – February 11, 2012) was an American singer, actress, producer, and model. In 2009, Guinness World Records cited her as the most awarded female act of all time. Houston is one of pop music's best-selling music artists of all-time, with an estimated 170–200... read more

Her voice is a gift from god, to be forever cherished and remembered for its dazzling grace. She was as iconic of a person as a she was a singer. She was beautiful, smart and intelligent. I will always love her!

I love her! She's been my idol forever

Her powerful voice is addictive.

4 Celine Dion Céline Marie Claudette Dion is a Canadian singer and businesswoman. She is best known for her song "My Heart Will Go On", which is the main theme of the 1997 film Titanic, which was the first film to gross $1 billion at the box office.

Very talented and beautiful lady. Even though I believe she is not as good as some of the others lower on this list, I still love her beautiful rich tone and "Mary Poppins-esque" crystal clear voice.

6 So Hyang

Bruh. Her range is insane. She can support a mixed belt up to C#6. Whitney is pretty much the agreed-upon best singer of all time (and rightly so), but So Hyang has the best belting ability of anyone I've ever seen. She's a Korean folk singer. Check her out on YouTube.

Powerful, resonant, supported belts extending into the 6th octave. Beautiful, bright and ringing head voice. Spectacular musicality and stamina. Her transitions between registers are seamless, earning her the moniker of the 'Korean Mariah Carey'.

7 Regine Velasquez Regine Velasquez-Alcasid, dubbed as the Asia's Songbird is a Filipina recording artist, host, producer, philanthropist, commercial endorser, actress, and an Asian pop culture icon. She is widely known for possessing an extensive vocal range.

Regine must be number 1. She is the best and she is the Asia's Songbird, no other artist in this generation can reach her success and milestones. She is reigning for 26 years in Philippine music industry and she is named as queen of Original Pinoy Music.

Regime is very successful but putting that aside, she is the best belter you could imagine... Watch her on YouTube and discover it yourself. No kidding.

Regine must be on top why? because of her extreamly, high, and soulful redention of every song that she sung. and one of the greatest and widest vocal belters of all time...and for me she is the best vocal singer in the world.(period) I LOVE YOU "ASIA'S SONGBIRD"...

She never fails to entertain us ever... She can belt the notes without hesitations... She defines the true POPSTAR!

Elkie Brooks has to be the best singer the U.K. has ever produced. Elkie sings it ALL. Rock,Jazz, Blues, Pop. She is The U.K.s female artist to have the most entries in the U.K. album chart ever.
Known as the British Queen of Blues. Elkie 's live shows are sensational. A must see.

Elkie Brooks has an amazing vocal talent.

One of the best singers in the world.

14 Ethel Merman

She was such a powerful belter, after she died, they still had to shoot her voice.

15 Chaka Khan Chaka Khan is an American singer-songwriter whose career has spanned more than five decades, beginning in the 1970s as the frontwoman and focal point of the funk band Rufus.

Chaka khan is a serious female singer. One of the best singers of this time. She should be up there on the list. So as Whitney Houston.

Makes singing seem so savvy and elegant all at the same time.

16 Stephanie Mills
17 Idina Menzel Idina Kim Menzel is an American actress, singer, and songwriter. Menzel rose to prominence when she originated the role of Maureen Johnson in the Broadway musical Rent. Her performance earned her a Tony Award nomination in 1996. She reprised the role in the musical's 2005 film adaptation.

I love Idina so much! She is the best. Even though Let It Go is getting old... It is still a beautiful powerful belting song. She IS Elphaba and Elphaba is one of the biggest belting roles of all time! She can belt like nobody's business. She has a stunning voice that gives you goosebumps just listening to it. (I'm not just a crazed fan either-I myself am a Musical Theater actress and a mezzo-soprano belter. I know what I'm talking about. She is fantastic.)

#13? WHAT? She deserves to be at least top five. She is my inspiration.

18 Charice Jake Zyrus (born Charmaine Clarice Relucio Pempengco, formerly known by the mononym Charice), is a Filipino singer who rose to popularity through YouTube. He is a transgender man.

2008-2011 Charice slays my entire existence. She didn't have the range of Regine or the mastery of head voice like Whitney, but her belts were the best. Extremely powerful and resonant and with unique tone. I wish she had been more popular because I believe she was one of the best singers to grace the 21st century.

Charice is amazing and should be way higher on this list! She can sing super high notes so effortlessly. She can nail all the Whitney Houston and Celine Dion songs. If you've heard her sing "All By Myself", you'd know she's awesome.

19 Morissette Amon

It's obvious, her ability to control with clarity and even at the very high notes.

Simply one of the bests in her generation.

20 Demi Lovato Demetria Devonne "Demi" Lovato is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. After appearing on the children's television series Barney & Friends as a child, she received her breakthrough role as Mitchie Torres in the Disney Channel television film Camp Rock and its sequel Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam... read more

Her belts are filled with so much emotions that even a small girl will cry out in tears maybe a little exaggeration there but its kinda true her belts are phenomenal.

Demi is so far the best singer of this new generation. She can also put a lot of emotions while singing and her high notes are just out of this world.

I wouldn't call Demi a true belter but her voice is still fantastic and I adore her music.

21 Gladys Knight Gladys Maria Knight, known as the "Empress of Soul", is an American singer, songwriter, actress, businesswoman, humanitarian and author.
22 Kyla

Well, she's really the best for me.. She can do both the lowest note and even one of the highest notes.. She is simply amazing.. Humble pa.. I just so love her..
