8 Ed Sheeran Ed Sheeran Edward Christopher "Ed" Sheeran is an English singer-songwriter and musician. He was born in Hebden Bridge in Yorkshire and raised in Framlingham, Suffolk.

Ed is my favorite singer... He is so cute... I just love him... I can't believe he's on number 2, he should actually be on number 1

His music has changed over the years and he's just getting better and more unique and vocally impressing. His old songs like Sing might have been written slightly better than his newer ones, but he still has one of the most greatest writing skills that actually means a lot to his life and other people. We can relate to him more than most great artists and be impressed. I'm not saying that his music was always perfect, but he still has a very good voice, clever writing skills, and some fantastic themes for his songs. We can praise him, we can hate him, it's just Ed Sheeran, you know.

Surprised he inst at No1

His voice takes the listner into another world of feeling the pain,soul touching vocals and amazing lyrics made him the Alpha of singing

20 Bob Dylan Bob Dylan Bob Dylan is an American singer-songwriter, author, and artist who has been an influential figure in popular music and culture for more than five decades.

Numbers don't matter to Bob. Albums such as Blood on the tracks, Desire, Slow Train, Highway 61, Budokan etc are testimony enough.
I remember the first time I came across his music. I was hitching around Europe and landed in St Tropez. I was sleeping on the beach, along with a few others. One night a Dutch guy got his guitar out and sang a down tempo version of Desolation Row. I found it really moving. For the first time, I saw the real power of song and how music could be used to influence the world, in a positive way.

Since then, I've been writing my own songs. Like Bob, love, from the heart, is the main ingredient. He is a tireless success. Worthy of a crown. Beyond the realm of rank. Thanks, Bob, for your lifes work.
Your love is not in vain.

His high notes are crazy and he does it without batting an eyelash, he's truly talented and amazing. If you haven't heard his songs, I highly recommend it, not just his most recent album Death Of A Bachelor, but also his previous ones like Too Weird To Live, Too Weird To Die and Vices and Virtues.

He has amazing vocals, hits notes on par with sopranos, and low baritones. He's outstanding. Highly suggest you listen to his music, even if you don't like it, just for the vocals.

Honestly didn't expect him to be on this list. Shouldn't be this far down though. He's amazing recorded or live. In my opinion he's better than all main stream musicians. Wish he would get more appreciation for his voice.

Brendon definitely should be much higher!

50 Andrea Bocelli Andrea Bocelli Andrea Bocelli is an Italian classical crossover tenor, recording artist, and singer-songwriter. Born with poor eyesight, he became permanently blind at the age of 12 following a football accident.

Who are these other names listed here? More than half of them are not singers at all, but rather "entertainers", who have pretty faces, dance onstage and use lavish production, but whose singing abilities are rudimentary at best. Bocelli can actually sing, and better than anyone.

Greatest singing voice in the world today- by a mile.

The best!
