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 altos I've heard and harmonizes amazingly with her raspy, clear tone in The Clark Sisters!

Her scatting is awesome. I 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 time! 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!

4 Shirley Caesar

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

5 Le'Andria Johnson

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

6 Mahalia Jackson

She mainstreamed gospel into American culture. She ONLY sang 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 one.

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

7 CeCe Winans

There is no 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.

Twelve Grammys, fifteen Stellars, seventeen million albums worldwide, twenty-three Dove Awards, four Soul Train Awards, one Lady of Soul Award, five 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!

Tamela Mann is honestly my favorite gospel singer of all time. Her singing just brings so much joy to my heart.

14 Vickie Winans

To the person who said that Long As I Got King Jesus was a great song, I love that song too. But also, guess what my favorite is? Shake Yourself Loose! That and LAIGKJ are both my favorite Vickie Winans songs!

15 Tasha Cobbs

She sure does touch deep in the soul with her songs.

Aretha Franklin is one of the best to ever do it. Pure talent. She is a legend.

18 Sinach

There is no song done by this lady that is not inspirational. Sinach is a blessing to this generation.

Such a moving gospel singer and writer.

Sinach impacts people, especially me, spiritually through her revelational songs. She's the best.

19 Lauren Daigle
20 Vanessa Bell Armstrong

Strong, powerful vocals throughout the years. As she ages, she only gets better.

Oh, I love Vanessa Bell Armstrong! She is so beautiful, and her voice is very angelic. Her voice still sounds the same to this day.

21 LaShun Pace

Very, very underrated, but her peers know she is real gospel, soulful, and can throw jazz riffs anytime she wants! Listen, not too many people can even get on her level!

Mahalia Jackson is the GOAT. Don't even have to write about her!

22 Ada Ehi

Ada's songs are songs for the spirit. Her style is like no other.

When you sing all your songs, I just want to hear them. Woman of the living God.

23 Albertina Walker

The one and only Queen of Gospel. If you want to know the Lord, listen to Sister Albertina Walker. She must know Him.
