Most Recognizable Singing Voices Ever

The Top Ten

1 Dimash Kudaibergen

Dimash Kudaibergen. He has a fantastic voice with an incredible range of 5 octaves F2 - G7. His voice is flexible, strong, young and very beautiful. When he sings, his heart sinks and goose bumps goosebumps. He freely passes from the range to the Liapashchon: in the same song he can sing like a baritone, a tenor and a soprano. He is an excellent actor and each of his songs is a performance. Dimash is also a very handsome guy. - Sholpan

Dimash Kudaibergen. Once you heard his voice you would never forget it. The timber of rare beauty, insane range of 5 octaves and flawless technique. His voice is full of emotions and conveys all the feelings of the song - no matter what language he sings. - AliceAlmaz

Dimash made revolution in music! He is the best vocal in the world!

A very respectful, traditional and patriotic young man with a love and passion for singing, the stage and his country. He has impeccable control of his vocal instrument.

Elvis has sold more records than everyone else on this list COMBINED.
Easily the most recognizable singing voice of all time.

Elvis Presley is the most recognizable singing voice to my eardrums... with Johnny Cash second.

Who are #1 and #2? Elvis is the King of Rock 'n' Roll for a reason and the best-selling Solo act of all time and either first or second best-selling of All Solo acts and hands

ELVIS is the most imitated human being in every way you can imagine. But never duplicated, which includes "That Voice" FACT not an opinion. I aacknowlege everything he did, he is the King but I have other personal favorites. he's still the greatest pop culrure phenomenon of all time.

Freddie Mercury is a freak of nature, the greatst vocalist but he sings so many different songs, so many different ways you don't always know its him. that's a whole different contest.

FREDDIE MERCURY - GOD OF MUSIC! And I don't use that lightly, but there is no other way to accurately sum up Freddie's genius! They'd have to invent new superlatives to even get close to this man's awesome magic! He was absolute PERFECTION!
Although Freddie had an amazing 4 octave range, his talents were so much more than that, if you can believe it. It was his passion, his charisma, his connection w/ the audience, his exuberance, his energy, his magnetism, his incomparable magic! Simply the BEST of all time, and forever, w/out competition or comparison, in a league of his own, absolutely God-like!
FREDDIE MERCURY - PERFECTION!
FREDDIE MERCURY - A Slice of Heaven!
FREDDIE MERCURY - The BEST of the Best!
FREDDIE MERCURY - THE GOD OF MUSIC!

The most spectacular voice there was. Freddie was incredible and any song he sang was the result of Heaven coming down to earth and embracing each and every soul that heard Freddie sing.

If you don't know when you hear him you need your ears cleaned out... So talented, it's such a drag he's gone

He was a musical mastermind and one of the only singers with a four octave range.

I never heard of the top 2 but neither could be more recognizable than Johnny Cash. He sang for nearly 50 years, dabbled in all genres of music at some point in his career. Still anyone could tell it was him.

Johnny Cash has one of the best singing voices I've ever heard, a great country-rock singer. One of the most recognizable voices ever.

Boom chicka boom chicka boom chicka boom... I walk the line... Enough said

Certainly an indistinguishable voice.

5 Vitas Vitas Vitaliy Vladasovich Grachov, known professionally as Vitas, is a Ukrainian singer and songwriter. He sings mainly in Russian. His music is often difficult to categorize, incorporating elements of techno, dance, classical, jazz, and folk music.

His voice resonates in my soul. He reaches octaves very few can reach. Not to mention, he's a lyrical genius and composes his own music. Oh and he's an absolute gentleman to his fans. As an American fan of vitas, I've been encouraged to learn russian just so I can gain the fullest experience of his songs.

His range is so wide that he appeals to audiences, world-wide. He easily belts out traditional songs in Russian, well-loved Chinese balads in Mandarin, and parodies of Elvis, Freddy Mercury, and Michael Jackson in English. His shows are thrilling for their repertoire surprises, featuring songs in all 5 1/2 octaves!

He is a uniquely talented artist with the ability to interpret a wide range of musical styles - from pop to opera to traditional folk songs.

I love his voice, because when he sings high notes so smoothly and his voice can touch my soul. I believe Vitas is the best singer on the world
