Top 10 Best Latin Female Singers

The Top Ten
1 Gloria Estefan Gloria Estefan is a Cuban singer who currently resides in the United States. She is known for fronting the Latin pop band Miami Sound Machine and for several solo songs.

Gloria has been a great artist over several years, singing in three languages: Spanish, Portuguese, and English, catering to several audiences. Renowned for singing disco hits and pop, traditional Cuban, and Latin music, her creamy, radiant voice is as well suited to ballads as to disco and rock.

Although today her singing is not flawless, the evenness of her tonality and wide register create an authentic sound, human and unaffected. It would be easy to concentrate only on her technical attributes, but the energy of her performance, her enthusiasm, and pleasing personality add much to the overall experience of listening to Gloria Estefan.

In addition, her physical attractive qualities, both in physique and facial beauty, enhance the whole experience of being a Gloria Estefan fan.

2 Selena Quintanilla-Perez Selena Quintanilla-Pérez was an American singer, songwriter, spokesperson, actress, and fashion designer.

I fell in love with Selena the first time I ever saw her. When I then heard her sing, my love for her strengthened from a simple crush to true appreciation of her as an artist. Selena is one of those rare individuals who capture your heart and senses before you even realize it is happening to you.

I think that Selena is the best female singer of all time because of her voice and all the wonderful things she did on stage, and because she is so beautiful and sexy. She was blessed with stunning good looks and is to this day one of the most attractive women ever to have walked on this planet. I still love my Selena with all of my heart.

3 Shakira Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll is a Colombian-Spanish singer, songwriter, dancer, record producer, choreographer, and model.

How can anyone rate higher than Shakira? This woman is a sensational singer with a powerful voice, great intonation, and superb range. She has it all. She is also one of the most stunning beauties to grace the stage.

She can sing, she can dance, and her figure is incredible. Look at that face - she is gorgeous - and on top of all that, she is a great philanthropist. The Pies Descalzos Foundation was founded to help improve the life chances of poor children in Colombia when she was only 18 years old, long before the 'big fame' period! This woman is a wonder as well as a stunning beauty.

4 Jennifer Lopez Jennifer Lynn Lopez, also known as J. Lo, is an American singer, actress, dancer, fashion designer, author and producer.

Jennifer is by far my favorite artist! I use the word artist and not singer because she does so many different things. It is inspiring to me how she follows her passion and makes so many things work without letting herself be held back.

Her music has character, and you can see, feel, and hear that she puts all of herself into it.

She is the most beautiful person I have ever seen. Beautiful is just a word. Jennifer gives meaning to it. Her voice is not strong but very sweet. She is beyond awesome. I love her so much!

She can sing, she can dance, she can act - what can't she do? She's a mom, and she is the highest-paid Latin actress. She is the queen of scents!

5 Thalia Ariadna Thalía Sodi Miranda, known mononymously as Thalía, is a Mexican singer and actress. She is referred to as the "Queen of Latin Pop" and is considered one of the most successful and influential Mexican artists.

Thalia is the female singer that Mexico sent to the world to represent this country. She is very talented. Her music and acting are such good references for a complete artist. I think that she will be remembered forever.

This woman is all talent. She is the most beautiful woman. Her singing and dancing are extraordinary. I loved watching all her novelas. No one is better than you, Thalia. You make Mexicans proud to have such talented and beautiful ladies. I love you, Thalia.

I cannot believe how underrated she is. She has everything: the looks, the voice, and the body. How on earth is she so low on this list?

6 Celia Cruz

The Cuban queen of Latin music is the reason why a new door was opened for Latin music to enter American culture. Celia Cruz had a positive and humble way of looking at the reality of life. No matter the obstacles, she believed that every person has to experience difficulties to truly taste the fruit of life.

I so agree with the other post. This trailblazing woman should have been first, at the very top! She laid the groundwork for every single Latina singer that came after her. And she is listed at 9? Terrible.

7 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

Ahm, I love her so much. I love all her songs. She is the only artist that can fully sing live with a beautiful voice and vocals from the start to the end of the concert. Love you, Demi.

Best female singer since Christina Aguilera! One of my favorites, along with Ariana Grande and Selena Gomez.

She should also be on the list.

8 Selena Gomez Selena Marie Gomez is an American actress and singer. She is best known for songs like "Come & Get It", "Good For You", "Same Old Love", and "It Ain't Me". Selena Gomez's voice is mezzo-soprano but she usually sings in alto. She is best known for her role as Alex Russo in Wizards of Waverly Place.

Her music makes you feel good. She always has something different to share. Love You Like a Love Song had a Japanese vibe to it, while Come & Get It has a Middle Eastern vibe.

Stars Dance is very dance-oriented, but A Year Without Rain is very different. She also grew up in a very elegant way. It is hard to grow up in front of cameras. It's even harder to do so gracefully.

This young lady not only has a great voice but is also a great actor. Beautiful Mexican American beauty.

Selena Gomez is a very talented woman. She is very passionate about her work and loves her fans. I love her and I am inspired by her.

9 Paulina Rubio
10 Edith Márquez
The Contenders
11 Shelly Lares

It's true that she doesn't get the recognition she obviously deserves. But hey! At least she got recognized here, and even with one of her best friends, Selena!

I've said it once and will continue to say it: Shelly is the last of the Selena-era top female artists who has kept it more "Tejano" and stayed within her music style range, no matter how our style and generation of music have changed. She doesn't need to collaborate with successful Mexican groups to look for a possible hit. She doesn't need to change her music style much, or even at all.

She stays with her feet well planted and keeps it as Tejano as she can deliver it to us. And look, she's living proof that it can be done, no matter how times change. She just keeps on doing what she loves, is living comfortably, has a beautiful, strong, loving family by her side, and still delivers great music to all of us SHELLIANS.

We love you, Shelly! Keep on keeping it real! Congratulations, by the way!

12 Jennifer Pena
13 Karol G
14 Christina Aguilera Christina María Aguilera is an American singer, songwriter, and record producer, best known for songs such as "Beautiful", "Genie In A Bottle", "Fighter", "Hurt", "Dirrty", "Your Body", "Lady Marmalade", "Reflection", "I Turn To You", "Come On Over Baby (All I Want Is You)" "What A Girl Wants", and... read more

Aguilera has pure raw power when she sings. It was Mi Reflejo that jolted my admiration for her voice. She has not disappointed when delivering powerful songs that many people and I can relate to. I am still waiting for her second full-length LP.

Great voice. A giant of a voice, this beautiful Mexican American lady. Just love her in Burlesque.

She has a voice like no other, only comparable to Mariah Carey in strength and notes! Amazing!

15 India

India is a powerhouse when it comes to her voice! Second to none, she has proved that her range, along with the emotion behind each and every word, is not to be reckoned with. She has shown that she can master the salsa genre, and she is currently working on a CD of ballads produced by none other than the Mexican superstar Juan Gabriel.

She will be around for a long time, and I can only imagine the success she will achieve with her great personality and versatility in music. India, you are number 1 in my book!

16 Jenni Rivera

Jenni, you did break barriers for Mexican Americans. It's a shame that you didn't start in the U.S. with English music. Like Selena, you had to sing in Spanish first, which shows how Mexican Americans are highly discriminated against in their own country. Hopefully, it will change in the near future. RIP, we will always love you.

No one word can describe this beautiful, strong woman. She did so much not just for her community but for people everywhere, mainly for women. She was and still is such an inspiration to us all. She will always be remembered and loved.

17 Vikki Carr

Vikki Carr is a four-time Latin Grammy winner and is extremely popular and loved throughout Latin America! She is still recording in the studio and has a new CD out called "Viva La Vida"! Pick up your copy today and/or any of her other Latin CDs, and you'll hear why she is the best!

She has a voice that is hard to beat. Dean Martin described her as "the best girl singer in the USA," and it's hard to disagree with that.

She is the most talented singer I have ever heard. She has great vocal control and colors her songs like painting on canvas.

18 Olga Tañón

Olga is the best singer of her generation. Her vocals are absolutely amazing. She has it all as a performer. She is the ultimate role model for any young artist!

19 Alicia Villarreal
20 Laura Pausini

Laura has 10 albums and countless awards, including:

5 ASCAP Latin Music Awards
2 Billboard Latin Music Awards
1 Grammy
3 IFPI Platinum Europe Awards
3 Latin Grammy Awards

She sings with passion, not just dance tunes but pure ballads. I can't believe she isn't higher on the list. She has had a successful 20 years in the business.

As much as I love Demi and Selena, they are not true Latin singers if they only have a couple of Latin songs. Most of their stuff is in English. But Laura, she can speak Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, French, and English. She also has a lot of Italian albums, then made one completely in Spanish and one in English. She's the best.

21 Mercedes Sosa

Mercedes Sosa's "Gracias a la Vida" is one of the top unforgettable Latin songs of all time. A lot of the current nominees and contenders would likely be inclined to agree.

Legend of legends. Masterful voice range, power, and grace. She sang "Gracias a la Vida," one of the greatest songs of all time.

22 Naya Rivera Naya Rivera Dorsey (January 12, 1987 - July 8, 2020) was an American actress, singer and model, known for playing Santana Lopez on Fox's musical comedy-drama television series Glee. She started as a child actress and model. She was the mother of Josey Dorsey.

Just look up all of Santana Lopez's solos and tell me she is not an amazing singer. Her vocal range is ridiculous, and her voice can blend with anyone's.

Okay, if you don't know who she is, then search these performances:

- Glee: Nutbush City Limits
- Glee: Girl On Fire
- Glee: Valerie
- Glee: Back to Black

If you don't like her after hearing those songs, then just watch her character Santana on Glee.

Best version of "Girl on Fire" I've ever heard, including Alicia Keys.

23 Rocio Durcal

Her voice is unique, beautiful, and enchanting. Every time I hear her sing, I get hypnotized and enamored with her voice and song interpretation. That is why she is probably the oldest in this or any list like this. Unforgettable.

I wish I would have discovered her earlier in my life. As a gringo, it took me a while to get into researching the great talents from Mexico and Spain. This lady was a tremendous talent.

Lovely, classy lady with great style. The songs that she sang were beautiful. I miss her very much. I'm glad she recorded a lot of songs in her life.

24 Aneeka

She is the best Latin singer these days!

25 Gloria Trevi

Definitely the most unique and trend-defining female singer in Latin America. In the 90s, Gloria was the most original and controversial singer-songwriter. After her incident, she returned to entertainment as strong as before. Her music has evolved with time, and while other great singers of her time are no longer current, Gloria keeps filling stages.
