Top Ten Greatest Male Baritones
Gianluca Ginoble is one of a kind. He has so many attributes that he is the only one to hold the position of baritone Number One Greatest Male Baritone. He has a voice whether singing or speaking which is amazing and simply melts your heart and sings from the depth of his soul. He has perfect pitch and can sing with or without accompiament with amazing passion that makes one catch one's breath and tears and can bring to the eyes. He draws people with his natural charm, exquisite good looks and unfailing kindness to all who come into contact with him. Gianluca sings whether with Ignazio Boschetto and Piero Barone and their unbelievable talent together evoke such emotion is hard to believe. Gianluca can stand alone anywhere whether with his stage presence or being with his fans where he demonstrates his love and respect for everyone. He is a near perfect person with his magnificent baritone voice that holds you spellbound. He is the best of the best.
His silken velvety baritone can bring you to tears one moment, then get you to your feet dancing the next! He's also a very humble, gentle man, with a beautiful generous heart. He founded the FIND YOUR LIGHT Foundation, will help to enrich the lives of young people through arts, education, and cultural awareness.
The combination of his personal experience and belief that the arts in children's and young adult's lives help shape and change them for the better, and the sobering reality that these are the exact programs that are being cut from our schools and society at a drastic rate, make him more attuned than ever to the need for this focus.
The most stunning and unique voice that I have heard in my lifetime, and I am 65. In a typical Josh concert crowd, you might see people fro 20 to older folks my age. No One can truly explain such broad appeal, and we don't need to. When he opens his mouth, he can send whispering comfort to your soul. When he opens the pipes full, he can set you back in your seat like a 747 taking off, but only for the sake of transporting you to a higher level, never for his own self exaltation. People often use the term "breathless" when listening to him. He sings with honesty, compassion, tenderness, and assurance. Still, he is an iceburg. With all of the breathtaking talent on display now, His true potential has been scarcely realized, and I think that the best is yet to be discovered. He could be the equivalent of a modern Nelson Eddy as far a broad appeal and popularity, so now the question is, who will be the net Jeanette McDonald to make the duet market complete! Female singers need not fear of overpowering him. My personal votes for a long term CD duet effort would be 1 Lara Fabian, 2 Laura Pausini, 3 Celine Dion. There are other great voices, but these 3 have the pipes and tenderness to match him, and have their own incredible following to put a duet over the top world wide. Jeanette, are you out there?
Undoubtedly number one. Not only the voice and breath control, but he had a unique ability to understand a song, make it come to life and to make it his own.
That voice..I just melt. Just beautiful. A voice which builds a protective wall around me whenever I listen to him. I adore this gentleman. Pleased Ol' Blue Eyes made your top two!
Incomparable. The best vocal actor of all time.
He was very special. He had "IT". He should have made it big time as an actor in top rated American movies and shows. He had the talent, voice, good lucks, movement and admiration of many around the world.
Elvis completes the sound with his gospel roots... He made popular real with this soulful gospel/blues background. No one did that in popular music making it unique.
Despite his death he will still live on as a music legend and a talented man.
Anyone who likes an awesome baritone, but hasn't heard Carlos Marin is missing an incredible treat. Find IL DIVO on YouTube if you want a quick listen. As a group these guys are the best. As individuals, their voices are full of emotion and perfection. Highly recommend you give Carlos a listen soon! SANDRA
Carlos blows me away when he rears back and sings out with that magnificent voice. I love him in the Il Divo group. I love his ever present smile, sometimes in the middle of a note he smiles at the audience, particularly the ladies. He has made me an opera fan as well as the cross over tunes Il Divo sings. Fantastic!
His voice is as smooth and rich as melted chocolate. Equally impressive whether soft and sensual or at full power. Simply fabulous voice and a very nice gentleman.
Piero has such a rich and full voice.,.and his voice comes from deep within him. Every song he sings is so beautiful and powerful. Absolutely an awesome singers and I could listen to him, song after song. He is getting even better and he just turned 20!
Beautiful, powerful raw voice. Surpasses all others on this list with ease.
Eddie has a great passionate voice, he should be higher up!
Beautiful, emotional, meaningful voice.
The most beautiful lyric baritone of the last 50 years between baroque music and modern composers. A fantastic, intelligent actor and a very handsome man. The best Don Giovanni of his time and really great in all his other different roles from Ulisse to Billy Budd. A specialist in Mozart as well as he perfectly interprets songs from Schubert to "songs his father taught him". He taught me to love songs of Ralph Vaughan Williams as well as songs of his home in the North of England.
Sir Thomas is able to sing operettas and musical in the same high quality as opera what is rather unusual for an opera singer and shows his talent and versatility.
A wonderful, warm lyric baritone, often described as "like velvet and silk", high musicality, talent as an actor and charisma makes Sir Thomas Allen one of the best singers of our time and probably the best baritone of his generation. As Don Giovanni he became the idol for a lot of young singers; as Sixtus Beckmesser and as Gianni Schicchi he proved his versatility, besides he's one of the great Lieder singers of our time and with 70 years still a delight to listen to.
When he first came over to the UK at the age of 22 his exceptional baritone voice, along with his good looks, stunned so many people. Although not operatically trained his voice is a pure gift and he sings with such sensitivity and emotion.
His earlier work, particularly his own compositions, show a penetrating observation and keen insight into human nature and he expresses this very poetically in his lyrics. He has touched so many.
His recent work is more experimental and multi layered and he uses political and other events as a springboard to something else he is trying to convey and he uses his voice in a different way
The unique quality of his voice reaches somewhere very deep in me and has continued to affect me in so many ways, even 50 years on. Every time I hear him, it's as if it's for the first time, so powerful is his impact. Scott's musicality, even at a very young age (go to YouTube to hear his extraordinary rendition of "Alone" by Jacques Brel at the ripe old age of 27) was simply astonishing. His courage as an artist was demonstrated early on, when he carved his own path against every prevailing musical trend in the psychedelic 1960s, and the vision of his modern compositions, no matter what you think of them, simply can't be ignored. His is the voice I want to hear on my deathbed.
This is the guy, his vocals have evolved a lot. Listen to cemetery gates, Cowboys from hell, 5 Minutes alone, I'm Broken, Floods, Great Southern Trendkill, A New Level, Domination, Medicine Man, Primal concrete Sledge. Phil is my favorite metal vocalist. If you don't listen to metal Pantera will get you there.
He was great as a tenor. When tenors went out of fashion he dropped down to baritone and had more number 1 hits then anyone in history.
One of the greatest baritones ever.
I grew up in the 60s so I'm a big Jim Morrison fan also. Crosby just made singing so effortless.
Yeah! I mean just Listen to the range of things he expressed.. From "shadow play" to "dead souls" to"transmission ", notice how his voice is keeping up with the band even at the heaviest moments. Incredible really.
