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!

So many people try to imitate freddie, but I can hear somethings misses in the details every time. Every tone he sang was such color on. And a octave range from F2 to D6, even when he was baritone!

Most chilling vocal part Freddie ever did was with this line in Mother Love:

"Out in the city, in the cold world outside
I don't want pity, just a safe place to hide"

As if he wasn't so ill at the time when he recorded that!

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.

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.

If you've never heard of Elvis then you've been living under a rock! He is among the best classic singers!

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.

I have no idea who Dimash Kudaibergen is at the top of the list. I think to be most recognizable people should know who it is and have heard them. To me the Man in Black is tops here.

If there is one artist I will never forget the voice of, it's Axl Rose. I have never heard anyone else with a voice as unique as his, making him very easy to distinguish.
