Perfect vocals always soothe my ears no matter what the singer sings.

Hansi Kürsch is a vocal god - his soft and his harsh voices are equally mindblowing. Most of the time his goal is not to soothe your ears because he sings heavy metal. But when he uses his soft voice he does that better than anybody else. He's the most versatile singer ever.
