Michael Barnes's relatives, as well as Ben Bumley's, please stop voting for them! Just let it go! FREDDIE MERCURY was/is/and forever will be the greatest voice EVER! No need to boost up your favorites, no matter how much they're paying you, lol.
With a 4 octave range, and the most amazing ability to master anything in the world, Freddie is the best in the universe! No matter what genre, Freddie performs his magic masterfully; he's the best EVER!

I love the way he sings the queen songs - Ajkloth

Who in the world are Michael Barnes and Ben Bumley anyway?!

Anyway, it doesn't matter who they are; FREDDIE MERCURY is the BEST singer in the universe, hands down!

7 Ben Burnley Ben Burnley Benjamin Jackson Burnley IV is an American musician, composer, and producer, best known as the founder and frontman of the American rock band Breaking Benjamin.

Ben has such an amazing and powerful voice. Their music fits any mood at anytime and it's all thanks to the amazing Ben Burnley. There's just so many little things he does with his voice while he sings that gets everyone hooked from the start. In my opinion he is the best modern rock singer and it's such a shame they broke up

While BB hasn't released music in recent years (which is incredibly depressing), I've always thought of Ben as one of the more unique and talented singers out there. From the heavy to the melodic, Ben can and has done it all, and he does it incredibly well.

Ben Burnley fenomen of the rock music and Breaking Benjamin is the best band - BREAKING94
