Jesus deserves to be number 1, Either Muhammad or Neil Armstrong deserve to be number 2, and Michael Jackson deserves to be number 3, Michael Jackson was so great, but Jesus will ALWAYS be the most iconic ever to exist, no one or nothing will ever compare.

Everybody talk about him and anybody can say: "I don't like billie jean or thriller", because he is a legend and his music will stay on history forever! The legacy stays untouchble. Love!

Number 3?! Something is wrong with the world! This is the best band ever! They changed music for ever, and who is K.S. chithra?

Any band today is influenced is some way by the fab four. By the way who is K. S. Chithra!

The Beatles should be in the top 3 for this list to be taken seriously.

4 K.S. Chithra Krishnan Nair Shantakumari Chithra, often credited as K. S. Chithra or simply Chithra, is an Indian playback singer from Kerala. Chithra also sings Indian classical, devotional, and popular music.

Her all-round vocal techniques, the optimal utilization of her stunning five octave range, her preeminent vocal texture and unmatched musicality will always enable her to be the strongest rival in the land of vocalists as well as a timelines vocal masterpiece and inspirator to the generations of singers. Her tone, beside, is also multi-textured and soothing to ears no matter how high she can phonate. The ultimate diva of all time.

My favorite vocalist, by far, is Chithra. Her voice has an inherent melancholy quality which makes it perfect for the Chithra' many melancholy and sad songs. She had such a vulnerability in her voice that it makes me want to give her a comforting hug.

Nowhere will you find a voice as smooth and silky as hers. Some people say her voice is "like butter. " I believe that distinction belongs to K. S. Chithra.

But K. s. Chithra's voice possesses so many qualities and facets that I love. It is soothing and sweet, loving. And sometimes when she hits those super-low notes, it sends a chill up my spine to this day.

And sometimes when she is singing tenderly, her voice crackles, and again, you hear that vulnerability.

Some other adjectives I can use to describe her voice are warm, sincere, touching, loving, and soothing. It wraps you up like a fluffy blanket on a cold day. The emotion in her voice is inherent. She doesn't need to yell to make you understand what she ...more

Chithra is just so totally unique, and such a credit to her county... the world needs to see and hear such a nice young lady with so much talent

She is most legend icon of the world

( dead ) artists of the world. Every year thousands of people visits Graceland. When all this other persons ranked higher on this list will die there's no way that they will becoming icons like Elvis. They will talk about for a while about them and then they will be forgotten. Get real! How in the name of all what is Holly will an artist like for instance Tom Hanks becoming an icon after he's dead? Will they sell some T-shirts, making posters of him, make a statue of him? I don't think so. Move Elvis up on this list if you want that this list will be taken as a serious list!

Let's face it, Elvis influenced everyone, in music, style, dress, talk, defines
cool, he had it all, and was a musical genius, took more then 30 takes for one song to make sure perfection or his fans got only the best. Elvis was
"real", and there is no way that you can EVER copy an original! There will never be anyone, or anything happening like this again! Elvis is and will always remain numero uno, number One! He is the first musical icon known
the world over by only one name...others may think they are in Elvis rank, but sorry folks, that slot belongs to Elvis and only Elvis, without him, you wouldn't even be here! Yes, there are a lot of great and talented people
out there, but Elvis stands alone in his own class, that's why we call him
"The King", and incidentally, he was so humble, he never liked the title, but
he sincerely loved his fans, and people in general. Elvis was Love!
