I'm just in love with his lyrics. He is the best lyricist of our century and an amazing singer. Love his music.

He's a great singer! I love his voice and he does it with his heart and this is what is real music! So wonderful!

I haven't heard beautiful voice like his in my life. Thank you so much, James Blunt

Great voice and great songs. Should be higher in this list.

202 Lacey Sturm Lacey Sturm

Um, Number 213? Really?! When I saw this poll Lacey Sturm was the the first person that came to mind. I mean, She's the best! Her & Elizabeth Hale.

Why isn't she higher on this list?! She has an epic voice, and she is so awesome!

We love you morteza (ta abad) forever

People don't know real music like what flyleaf makes.

203 Regine Velasquez Regine Velasquez Regine Velasquez-Alcasid, dubbed as the Asia's Songbird is a Filipina recording artist, host, producer, philanthropist, commercial endorser, actress, and an Asian pop culture icon. She is widely known for possessing an extensive vocal range.

Ms. Regine is not only an only a singer but she is A PROFESSIONAL SINGER because she is known as the ASIA'S SONGBIRD and she lived in the Philippines because PNoy is not only a singer but they can be a Professional Singer like Charice Pempengco. Ms Reg can also HIT the High Notes that she is singing like Mariah Carey's song and also to the other known singer.
- MosesG20

One of a kind, gold and platinum albums, great audience in concerts, many blockbuster movies. I think she is the only singer that can sing well with high notes even suffering from harsh voice. A spectacular singer indeed. A singer that sings full of emotions and feelings that you don't have to look at her. Fabulous and low-profiled singer. She even do not forget to help those people in need.

An extra-ordinary singer... Multiplatinum albums, sold-out concerts, movies... Shes amazing... REGINE VELASQUEZ, ASIA'S SONGBIRD.. A VOICE TO BEAT...!

The best singer of all time regine

204 James Taylor James Taylor James Vernon Taylor is an American singer-songwriter and guitarist. A five-time Grammy Award winner, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2000. He is one of the best-selling artists of all time, and he has sold more than 100 million records worldwide.

I cannot believe someone has not put him in! One of the softest and most comforting voices ever and also with great tone. One of the only singers who voice could make you cry.

One of the smoothest voices around. Sweet baby James is one of the greatest singer/songwriters ever.

In his prime, no one came close to his beautiful tone. No one.

So many terrible singers ahead of him. This list is terrible. James deserves top 70. - Powerfultekin

205 Ray Price Ray Price

The Best Singer That Ever lived. No question about it. he had one hell of a beautiful voice

206 Geoff Tate Geoff Tate Geoff Tate is a German-born American singer and musician who rose to fame in the 1980s with the progressive metal band Queensr├┐che.

It is undeniable that Freddie Murcury is the greatest singer of all time but the reason I'm voting for Geoff Tate is because having him at number 153 is just a disgrace to music. This guy deserves to be in the top ten or at least in the top 20. This guy has a pair of vocals that could sing anything. I've made my friends listen to Queensryche and were all taken a back by how amazing this guy is. The only reason he's so low is because Queensryche isn't popular enough. - metalmaiden

Tate has an operatic rock voice, and can carry a high note forever. He would be perfect for Phantom of the Opera. His vocals our very powerful that can go high, but he has a natural low voice. He definitely deserves to be in the top ten for male singers.

99... this list is a joke... eddie vedder, geof tate... all of them not in the top ten slot... and only to be preceeded by britney! Tate is Progressive rock's staple diet.

Some people are just doing singers of bands they like, not people who have amazing voices. Best singer has to be Geoff Tate, just listen to Queen of the Reich.

207 Toshi - X Japan Toshi - X Japan

His voice isn't classically amazing but it has such power and emotions.

You can never hear his voice and mistake for someone else because so unique and different, I'm not from japan and I can't speak Japanese but his voice gives its own translation because you can feel his meaning in your heart even if not in your head.

I'm sorry if my English is bad but I hope you understand what is my meaning.

X japan love from korea

His voice can show so many emotions, it can easily make one cry. X Japan was a legendary band, and their songs really have a meaning.

I love the band X Japan! His voice is amazing I listen to them all the time I will never get tired of there music! His vocals are amazing, he has so much meaning in the songs he sings, and his voice is very unique, can't mistake it for anyone elses! The day I discovered X Japan was the day I found the true meaning of music in my opinion! ~

Toshi's voice when he sings is just amazing and so unique especially when you listen to tears

208 Lana Del Rey Lana Del Rey Lana Del Rey is a California based singer, songwriter, and model who currently resides in Malibu, California. She was born under the name Elizabeth Woolridge Grant to entrepreneur Robert England Jr. and Patricia Ann Hill in rural Lake Placid, New York on June 21, 1985. She has two siblings, Chuck and ...read more.

202?!?!?!? SERIOUSLY?!?! Lana Del Rey is easily one of the best singers of all time and should be in the top 10, not stuck at 202! Lana is a queen who is very versatile in music, somewhere on the fine line of pop, alternative, and washed out punk rock-ish. Her blend of music might not sound good, but she's so unique and beautiful. Her voice is so unique, and she worked hard for many years to try to become well known and deserves to be even more well known. Everybody in the world should be given a copy of Born To Die, Paradise or Ultraviolence and not listen to the crap most of the world does listen to. Lana Del Rey is QUEEN!

Her voice is so strong and powerful. She should be more well known. ' Born to die' is so lovely! I hope she advances in her career, and come out with more songs.

This woman's voice is heaven. Everyone knows her and she needs to be in the top ten at least!

Beautiful Strong Voice! Very Angelic & Unique! She needs more fans.. She's a definition of a "Angel"

209 Diana Ross Diana Ross

I do not agree with this list at all. Diana is barely in the top 200 & Cher is like 150 while people like Katy Perry & Taylor Swift are in the top 20? Diana, Cher, Tina, etc are extremely influential & talented women and deserve to be in the top 20 at least. I'm all for supporting the new talent but then why aren't artists like Lana Del Rey & Sia near the top of the list?

The voice of love. She has proved to withstand the test of time. She should be #1 along with Gladys Knight, Whitney Houston, and Tina Turner.

I don't have a clue who did this list!... But please do more research. Diana ross 140 not saying she should be #1 but really no wheres judy garland don't know if she made your list I couldn't go on so many artist you missed or put people like Madonna please a product of publisity anyways give some oldies some love peggy lee Sarah Vaughan ethel waters lena horn.. anyways thanks for the Rant!

Diana Ross is a good singer and Motown alumni. I remember Michael Jackson had a crush on her when he was a kid. He even made Dirty Diana in honor of Diana.

Michael Hutchence is without a doubt the greatest singer and songwriter ever the song Don't Change has taught me not to try and be someone else to just be me and enjoy life I love him so much I wish he was still here....

212 Patti LaBelle Patti LaBelle Patricia Louise Holt-Edwards better known under the stage name Patti LaBelle, is an American singer, author, actress, and entrepreneur.

Pure vocal power and range packaged beautifullly with the greatest vocal control and depth on record. This is a true example of unmatched substance and god-given talent,in five tremendous octaves.

Patti LaBelle is absolutely number 1 in my opinion. How the hell is she anywhere below at least top 20? Clearly people with no ears made this list.

213 Pat Benatar Pat Benatar Patricia Mae Andrzejewski, known professionally by her stage name Pat Benatar, is an American singer, songwriter, and four time Grammy Award winner.

Her voice is simply majestic! She can make the heaviest music sound overly melodic. I don't know if she has soul but she has more passion in her voice than anyone! - cjvk3

One of the greatest singers of all time at the very least! She can hit the high and lows in her music perfectly.

Pat Benatar is one of the greatest female rock legends. Her music can just Hit Me with Your Best Shot.

Iggy Azalea better than her? NO WAY!

214 Rufus Wainwright Rufus Wainwright

I cannot believe Rufus Wainwright has not been considered on this list. He has one of the most distinctive and beautiful voices and his songs are absolute genius. Every single one of them and they cover any emotion or situation. My number 1 well and truly.

I find it despicable that Rufus Wainwright is placed this far down. I thought this list was for singers. As far as actual vocal talent, he surpasses the majority of artists out there today, and definitely deserves to be placed much higher on this list.

He is a great singer with an amazing voice for example him singing the polices song wrapped around your finger.

Love everything he sings...top 10

You saying pitbull is the 206th best singer ever? I mean he should be in the top 40 at least! - lizard302

I love you so much

I love Toni Braxton's voice... She hasn't made very many songs but Unbreak my heart is one of my all time favorites I'm surprised that she isn't higher on the list & no one else voted for her...
