271 Patrick Stump Patrick Stump Patrick Martin Stumph, known professionally as Patrick Vaughn Stump, is an American singer, songwriter, musician, record producer, actor and music critic, best known as the lead vocalist, guitarist, pianist and composer of Fall Out Boy, an American rock band from Wilmette, Illinois.

Patrick Stump. The first words that come to my mind about him is how phenomenal and talented he truly is. For 14 years, he has written the music for his band and solo career, adding up to a total of 7 studio albums. Most people on this list are incapable of writing even one song on their own. Time and time again Patrick Stump has impressed us with the juxtaposition of emotional and rather depressing lyrics (that he and the bassist of Fall Out Boy, Pete Wentz, collaborate to write) and upbeat and obnoxiously fun music behind it. And they have only gotten more and more successful over the years. Instead of running out of material, Fall Out Boy is constantly surprising is with albums even better than the last. Not to mention, Patrick's vocal range spans from an E2 to a C6. That spans almost 4 octaves, and the high notes are extremely impressive for a man to be able to sing, and he can sing those notes unbelievably well. Patrick Stump is truly remarkable, and should be much higher on this ...more

I'm shocked and devastated that this amazing man isn't at least in the top 30. Patrick Stump has an almost unhuman vocal range and is capable of singing most any genre, from pop to punk to rock to jazz. His voice is truly unique and distinguishable and beautiful overall. Of course, his solo career isn't well known and Fall Out Boy (he's the singer! ) is just now rising to fame and maybe one day he'll be more well known as an amazing person and beautiful singer.

Patrick is so underrated as a musician. His voice is so versatile and his vocal range is incredible. Honestly I'm shocked that he's not higher on the list. He can sing punk, he can sing soul, he can sing pop, he can sing everything in-between and he puts his heart into what he does. Patrick is incredible and without a doubt should be way higher on this list.

I was expecting to see this guy at least in top 50 but I found him at 267. What can I say about the people today? He is the vocals of one of the greatest band of all time fob thou he is here. Can somebody tell me why he is so underrated?

272 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.

To me it is absolutely disgusting that I had to spend so long searching for Ed's name to come up. Are you people crazy? He is so damn talented! I have seen him live and he sounds absolutely perfect, even better than in the studio. He has an amazing ability to lose himself in his music and he puts every fibre of his being, and every ounce of passion that he can into writing and performing his songs. He does amazing covers of songs too and introduces young fans to the great works of artists like Nina Symone. I am not saying that Ed is the most talented singer that has ever been; he's not. But he sure as hell should be further up the list than 576. That is outrageous. This list is crap and half of the people above Ed cannot sing to save their lives. We need to get him further up this list.

Ed Sheer an truly is a legend. He simply defines music in ways that no one else can. It's a shame that he is ranked so low when most of us know he deserves a spot in the Top 10 in not in the Top 5 or 3. I wouldn't even be shocked if he reaches the top of the list. He may be new but his creations are no less then the legends we used to listen to decades ago.

Depressing that he's not on even in the top 200. Ed is an amazing singer. Sounds great on his albums and even better live. Ed is amazing and his angelic voice and godlike music will live on forever. My children WILL know who Ed Sheeran is.

Place 287? he is awesome singer, he should not be in this low place - XlarEnder

Three different voices. Amazing art of singing that you can never hear from any other singer. You don't need to understand since you can feel it. So if you have never tried hearing his voice, I highly recommend you to reconsider.
Never can be comparable with any other singer's songs you ever heard!

he is the best , because he sings just for love . lovers choose him the best . be sure!

The best singers of the history of traditional music of Iran. The candidate of Grammy award. The receiver of UNESCO award, also.

The best singer of the world. Any time...

she is the best singer in the world, she has the most beautiful and sweet voice, she must be in first place

Can't belive that she's on the 386th place! Unplug your ears people! She deserves way too more!

Have you ever heard this woman sing? She has one of the most powerful voice of anyone I've ever heard. One of her best songs is Passion and the Opera from when she sung for Nightwish. I cannot believe her voice in that song.

What, how is she so low? This woman certainly knows how to sing.

276 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.

277 Aaron Lewis Aaron Lewis Aaron Lewis is an American musician, who is the lead vocalist, rhythm guitarist, and founding member of the rock group Staind, with whom he has released seven studio albums.

This guys voice is amazing. First of all this list is messed up. Chad Kroeger should be in the top 50 at least. Justin Beiber? Ashley Tisdale? Miley Cyrus? and I think I saw Selena Gomez WTF man? WTF? - lebronandjordan23

One of the greatest vocalists I've ever heard. The emotion in his voice and the words he sings are amazing. And the extensiveness of his voice is unmatched

He can sing just about anything. Rock, metal, or country. He puts in all of his emotion into anything he does.

Probably should be top twenty. Has a rich voice with good range.

278 Jordin Sparks Jordin Sparks Jordin Brianna Sparks is an American singer, songwriter and actress. In 2007, she rose to fame after winning the sixth season of American Idol; at age 17, she became the youngest winner in the series' history.

Jordin Sparks is a good singer and today she has, is, and will forever be on my heart just like a Tattoo.

she is the best singer in the world I love her

She deserves to be #1

279 Helena Josefsson Helena Josefsson

Who the heck is Helena Josefsson? Seriously, people, I want to know!
