Top 10 Best Female Gospel Singers

The Top Ten
1 Dorinda Clark-Cole

I think Dorinda Clark- Cole is an amazing singer. She brings so much energy to the stage when she is performing.

She's one of the best alto's I've heard and harmonizes amazing with her raspy Clear tone to The Clark Sisters!

Her scatting is awesome wish I could sing with her and her sisters

2 Karen Clark-Sheard

Karen's Voice is one of the best sopranos also! She sings the main high parts in The Clark sisters!

Karen Clark Sheard is the best singer of all times! Her humility is equally impressive.

Karen Clark- Sheard is honestly amazing. Her echoes are truly breathtaking.

3 Yolanda Adams

Yolanda is simply the greatest. No gospel singer has matched her ability to speak to diverse audiences the way she does. She's a trendsetter and able to stand on the grandest of stages outshining anyone outside of God. How could you not appreciate the Queen of Contemporary Gospel Music, our First Lady of Modern Gospel?

How could you not appreciate the Queen of Contemporary Gospel Music, our First Lady of Modern Gospel? Yolanda Adams represents the best of gospel music and will outshine anyone on any stage outside of God. Miss Adams has a God-given gift of song that enables her to shine brighter than her colleagues!

Most powerful gospel singer of all time. I consider Yolanda Adams number 1in top 10.

4 Shirley Caesar

Legend, absolutely a legend. A blessing to all in need.

5 Le'Andria Johnson

Yes there have been things Said, Mrs. Johnson but those words are true it's just the way she said it because how can anyone that God chosen for his flock to walk by someone and ignore them what man of God does that, she just put pastors an Bishops on blast that's all she said something that no one else would have said it had to happen. because they want everybody else to think. they are so clean when they are not no one might know what you have done to get in that pulpit but God sees, that's the key God knows what you're doing and sometimes God will put people around to call you out... That's his way of showing people. be careful of who you are allowing to speak to you from my book..

Redemption, prayer, and healing. All things you will feel when she sings.

They she ministers

6 Erica Campbell
7 Mahalia Jackson

She mainstreamed gospel into American culture. She ONLY sung gospel her whole career. Mahalia also sang through her illness and made the pathway for modern gospel today. She isn't called the Queen of Gospel for no reason!

Mahalia should be number one on this list. The way she paved the way for everybody else on this list is amazing. She is the best gospel singer and singer ever. She seriously deserves to be number 1.

Mahalia Jackson is the epitome of gospel music. She was and always will be the undisputed Queen of Gospel.

8 CeCe Winans

There is not gospel singer that comes close to comparing to CeCe Winans. The tone, the anointing, the growls, the joy, the peace, the smooth runs, the voice. She does not have to do a lot of extra to what matters the most: worship unto the Lord. She is undeniably the best. 12 Grammys, 15 Stellars, 17 million albums worldwide, 23 Dove Awards, 4 Soul Train Awards, 1 Lady of Soul Award, 5 Essence Awards, Music City Award, Nashville Walk of Fame Recipient, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and so many more. She is a trailblazer in Gospel, Christian, and R&B music not to mention pop culture. I could go on and on. Her best friend and sister Whitney was the voice yet CeCe is the gift. All hail the Queen!

I say yes & Amen to the comments that I read. It's good to be a gospel singer that God gave a voice to. But to be Anointed which destroys yolks & bring chains off the lives of people that's worth honoring & to add worship my Lord. God has raised up many young voices to come forth but to follow in the path of the season saints he's gifted voices to how can u not bless the lives of people all over the world & nations. I've always loved CeCe & BeBe some of their songs had me feeling like I wanted to marry but thank God I didn't get caught up in the moment! God is to amazing. Love the Whole Anointed Family. Stay Blessed.
