Top Ten Canadian Singers
Best Canadian singer by far. Her voice is pure and pitch perfect, and her concerts are superb!
She's my favorite Canadian singer, her voice is fantastic!
She does great music.
Avril Lavigne was basically the right artist at the right time. She was the backlash against what was going on from the mid to late 90s beforehand, which involved the over repetitive Eurodance music at the clubs and the teenybopper stuff like *NSYNC, the Backstreet Boys, and early Brittany Spears, with some of those artists being factory products. Avril Lavigne was society's way of trying to be authentic and genuine, like going back to the point of,"Hey, it's a punker chick being sexy and ambitious, like back in the 80s" or something like that. So she was literally a backlash against commercialized pop.
1. Powerful, soulful voice, great songwriting skills, pretty face, charisma... In the world of Britneys and Christinas, Avril was a breath of fresh Canadian air.
She saved my life, I related to her music and all the lyrics, she's my escape, I wouldn't be here if it weren't for her.
He has to be the best Canada has ever produced. 100 million plus records sold and he sounds as good now as he did decades ago. One of the greats of all time.
One of the best the world has ever seen.
My most singer that waking me up.
She must be #1. Her voice come entirely and naturally from her beauty and her spirit. She is the artistic spirit of Canada.
Canada's best female country singer.
I'm South African, so I grew up listening to Celine Dion (she is very popular here), and as an adult, I began listening to Avril Lavigne (she has one of the best singing voices, and her first two albums are great). But The Weeknd will always be my favorite Canadian singer and writer.
His music is incredible, and his production is always high quality and unlike anything you have heard before in RnB. In my opinion, his underground music (Trilogy, Kissland) is way better than his mainstream songs like Blinding Lights. His old music helped me through so much; it's like he is singing about me even though I never engage in drugs or sex. The way he sings and writes makes you really feel his emotions and pain. His underrated songs never get boring.
Never heard of him
Incredible career - is he the only one to receive Canadian order of merit?
I can't believe he's not higher?
Poseurs such a Celine and the Bieb, come on, that's not right.
Justin Bieber is best known for his songs "Baby" and "What Do You Mean". He currently has seven videos that exceed 1 billion views on YouTube, which are "Baby", "What Do You Mean?", "Sorry", "Love Yourself",... read more
No words to explain about his voice..
Marvellous. He is the person who teaches me to become strong in my failures..
I love this man literally and like a brother for me. I am indian but I love Canada.
Because of him.
Such a great man he is
Love you @Justinbieber
I think that Justin Bieber must be the best singer of the whole world.He is amazing! I am a 11 year old sri lankan girl. And I love canada because of him.
He deserves the number 1. He has sold more albums than all of the other ones together.
He is my favorite singer...his voice lets me dream and love, he is de Frank Sinatra of today.
I can tell if he's singing on the radio, his voice is that unique, in a good way!
I love his voice! It's so cool and unique!
Shawn Mendes is a clear representation of the Canadian ethics and our culture. He is kind and loving. He has sky rocketed to fame in less than 4 years which is incredible. He is very talented and produces one of the best pop music in the world industry. We all love Shawn, he is amazing and deserves to be on the top of the list
Shawn Mendes is incredible! I'm hardly impressed with singers but damn this man can sing and he's gorgeous! He's the whole package. His music sounds great and he's an amazing songwriter.
Why is he under Justin Bieber? I mean, Shawn Mendes is WAY more talented than the person who spits on his fans! Shawn is the best Canadian singer I've ever heard and loved! He's so nice!
He is better than almost everybody on the list, just go listen to The Death of Music, Bastard, Life is All Dynamics, Kingdom, The Way Home, Awake. come on, Justin Biever ahead of him? What a dumb world
Just listen to his song Kingdom and you'll realise he is much better than 12th
An absolute classic -- the fact that he's not higher on the list is only evidence of the young age of the voters, not of his talent.
One of Canada's all time great writers and folk singers. Truly a legend.
Brilliant singer and songwriter.
As a singer, a little rough--but as an interpreter of his own songs, there is no one better.
This man was a genius at writing songs with in depth meaning. His voice had a raspyness sound which added to the lyrics.
One of the greatest songwriters of all time.
I saw her live, and it was so cool! I've never heard a voice as unique as hers!
I hope she gets # 1 this year... my favorite song she sang is river of tears!
She is the best singer! I love her!
Way better than all the Shawn mendes and Justin bieber crap (seriously though, all Shawn mendes songs sound the exact same and are uninspired) I thought it sounded bad at first but then I realized how amazing she is!
I LOVE this guy's singing! And he is really a nice guy, besides being so hot!
Clearly most of the voters are young, and Joni Mitchell is no longer in the mainstream. But there are still singers trying to emulate her magical voice.
Join Mitchell wrote hit songs in the 60s and 70s that are still popular today. Her songs "Yellow Taxi", Blue, and Carey are some of the many favorites.
Why the hell is joni so low? Definitely should AT LEAST be in the top 10
She is one of the most widely known singers on this list, as well as one of the best vocalists, deserves to be in the top 5.
She should be in the Top #10.
I love her too. She kind of looks like Amy Grant in this photo. What do you think?
