123 Andrea Bocelli Andrea Bocelli Andrea Bocelli, OMRI, OMDSM 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.

Andrea Bocelli should be way on the top. His voice is beyond beautiful, and sings from his heart. Yes he is blind, but I still love him. Because of him I began to like his music a lot more. I even had began to sing his songs, and had gotten better. People tell me that I have a beautiful voice like him, but I don't think so. They told me that I should join the choir, but I think it will take me years. And even then I will not come close to him. Is not easy to sing his songs, they're really challenging. But I have already learned to control my voice so is not difficult to do. But I do it for fun, but long live Bocelli anyways.

He made high-brow opera more accessible to the unsophisticated

I am melted hearing his voices. I owe you full Andrea Bocelli. Can we sing together?

He is amazing. Everything about him is simply amazing.

124 Prince Prince Prince Rogers Nelson (June 7, 1958 - April 21st, 2016) was an American musician, best known for being one of the most popular and influential artists from the 80s, with songs such as "Purple Rain", "Little Red Corvette", "1999", and "When Doves Cry" .

Numerous Albums and no1 hits, vocal range is insane, entertainment factor is outstanding not to mention he records all his own instruments and dances like no tomorrow, if we are going on popularity then yes choose your poppy sensation but if we are bring it down to singing then prince should be definitely up there he isn't considered one of the greats for no reason!

Listen to "adore" or 'extraordinary' and 'the arms of orion' duet with sheena Eastern and then 'the most beautiful girl in the world'---such vocal range is amazing without compare. Then try 'i like it there' and 'damn u'... He ought to be charted higher, and he will be in time once you've been well exposed to more of his music

He should not be down here! He his vocals are INCREDIBLE and if it weren't for Prince, most of the people above him wouldn't be here! MOVE HIM UP!

Why is he so low? He should be at LEAST in the top 5!

Drake is not even a singer, and he is even an awful rapper. Why is he here?

He is talented but very sexual especially with Nicki and her big everything especially the but

If I'm not hallucinating I think he's below Justin Bieber. Why is he so low down here? He's the best singer ever!

The lead singer of skillet is awesome in my opinion despite the newest album being a little trash they are amazing - TheUltimateNavigator1

Why on earth is he all the way down at 159? His music is awesome!

129 Brendon Urie Brendon Urie Brendon Boyd Urie, more commonly known as Brendon Urie, was born April 12, 1987, in St. George, Utah. He is an American singer, songwriter, musician and multi-instrumentalist. He is best own as the lead singer of the American pop-rock band Panic! At The Disco. He is the only original remaining member. ...read more.

This is bull. Brendon urie is an amazing singer. While people rate Katy Perry in the top 20, brendon's down here at 199. what. So many good singers are being shamed by the new generation, Alice Cooper, Prince, even Elton John is behind singers with no talent like Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, and Rihanna. Back to urie, he has a better vocal range than the legend Freddy Mercury, consisting of four octaves and seven notes, and his lyrics are better than most of the popular music today. Just go listen to all of Panic! At The Disco's albums, singles, and even Brendon's solo stuff at the Billy Joel tribute and at Miss Universe, you won't be disappointed.

His voice is magnificent, and if you watch the APMAs for 2015 the band New Politics called him God. He is a man who can swoon a girl just by hitting one note. Everyone likes Brendon. My sister and I, sometimes fight about turning off Fall Out Boy, because she is tired of Patrick's voice. And turning off My Chemical Romance, because I'm tired of Gerard's voice. But never once have we argued to turn off Panic! At the Disco. His voice is magic. It makes you want to listen to him. At a young age he came into the world of fame, and he will be the wonderful Brendon Urie until the day he dies.

OKAY BRENDON. I'VE FINALLY SCROLLED DOWN ENOUGH TO FIND HIM. BRENDON URIE, APART FROM HIS PHYSICAL ATTRACTIVENESS AND HIS ADORABLE PERSONALITY, BRENDON CAN SING LIKE A PRO. HIS VOCAL RANGE IS INCREDIBLE AND HIS SONGS ARE AMAZING. THIS IS THE GUY THAT CAN GO FROM LOW TO HIGH IN A SECOND AND CAN SING PRETTY MUCH ANY GENRE AS HIS BAND'S VARYING ALBUMS HAVE DEFINITELY PROVED.

I'm sorry, I can't hear anyone else over this man's four octave range...

130 Van Morrison Van Morrison

His recent work not withstanding, Van Morrison is, without a doubt, the greatest white singer ever to hold a microphone. From Astral Weeks to Hymns To The Silence nobody has come close to matching his vision and vocal power. He taps into things almost no other vocalist has ever reached within a framework of his own unique musical style - pure feeling and spontaneity matched to timeless songwriting. Bitterness and anger poisoned his later work, but nothing can erase the glow of his many, many stupendous masterpieces.

Van the Man. Not only is he one of the finest songwriters in the history of rock, his voice stands out as one of the most amazing as well. He started out almost punk with his early band Them, then amazed us with his pop sound of Brown Eyed Girl. But when he finally took off, it was the voice...the voice that gave you goosebumps as Van sang Madam George, Sweet Thing and Astral Weeks. The voice that entranced you on Moondance, Tupelo Honey, Listen to The Lion, Into the Mysic and so many others. Van Morrison's powerful voice makes him a top 20 singer without any doubt.

Clearly there are people voting here that have no concept of rock history. They are confined to their only little world of pop music. Van Morrison is one of the all time greatest voices in rock music. He's at #158? Insanity! - Storm63

One of the best poets and voices of a generation. So versatile and has so much soul in his voice (for a pasty Irishman, lol). When you listen closely, you realize he doesn't always need words--his voice takes on the tone of many different instruments. He is, and will always be, a true classic.

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....

Michael Hutchence deserves more then rank 214. Don't Change, Never Tear Us Apart, Need You Tonight, New Sensation. Best songs in the WORLD! WHAT HAS THIS WORLD COME TO? MICHAEL SHOULD BE NUMBER ONE! LOVE YA MICHAEL!

NO ONE CAN BEAT HIM HE DESERVES TO ME IN THE TOP 2 HE WOULD OF BEEN BIGGER THAN JOHN LENNON I LOVE YOU MICHAEL.

135 Karen Carpenter Karen Carpenter Karen Anne Carpenter was an American singer and drummer. She and her brother, Richard Carpenter, formed the 1970s duo Carpenters.

Without Question, Without Hesitation, Without even a "Hint" of a second thought...
Karen Carpenter 'The One & Only! For all of the reasons stated by the numerous
Other Karen Carpenter fans & a few I'd like to add. Clarity, Joy, Presentation, this
Woman, this elegant human angel brought passion & joy & integrity to her craft.
Karen Carpenter Gets my vote over and over and over and over again. For the rest
Of time... My thoughts are like this: " the holy Father simply wanted a front row seat &
Wanted to spare her the ridiculousness which takes place daily ". This woman is so far
In front of whoever no. 2 might be its' very nearly NOT MEASUREABLE.
YES! Karen Carpenter Has given Joy, (unknowingly) support, confidence & many, many
MILLIONS of people a reason to smile & face the drudge again for another day.

MY VOTE FOR NOW... & FOREVER INTO ETERNITY is : KAREN CARPENTER

THE ONLY WAY THIS COULD EVER CHANGE IS IF... THE holy ...more

lol... this list is a joke! Karen Carpenter at #58?

My favorite vocalist, by far, is Karen Carpenter. Her voice has an inherent melancholy quality which makes it perfect for the Carpenters' many melancholy and sad songs. She had such a vulnerability in her voice that it makes me want to give her a comforting hug.

Nowhere will you find a voice as smooth and silky as hers. Some people say Barbra Streisand's voice is "like butter. " I believe that distinction belongs to Karen.

But Karen's voice possesses so many qualities and facets that I love. It is soothing and sweet, loving. And sometimes when she hits those super-low notes, it sends a chill up my spine to this day.

And sometimes when she is singing tenderly, her voice crackles, and again, you hear that vulnerability.

Some other adjectives I can use to describe her voice are warm, sincere, touching, loving, and soothing. It wraps you up like a fluffy blanket on a cold day. The emotion ...more - jonk0469

Karen had the most beautiful voice I have ever heard in my life time. Perfect pitch awesome vibrato and just sang effortless. She made you listen to the words with perfect phrasing and timming. Karen was not a belter and when you added a mic to that voice out came this flawless instrument, she knew her talent. No one can come close to that god given voice. Karen never made a mistake and it has been said she was incapable of singing off key. Amazing singer.

136 George Michael George Michael Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou, known professionally by his stage name George Michael, is an English singer, songwriter, and record producer.

Why is George Michael #98? He can sing and write better than all of these artists! I think he should be up with Freddie Mercury.

George is the definition of a GREAT ARTIST. And why is Justin Bieber on this list? I guess people don't know good music...

The list is ridiculous. Rating a singer on the the basis of cult status is not good, like the others have been rated. Here the list says Best singers of all time, and I strongly believe George is one of the best ever. You need to hear his songs to actually believe it. Amazing gift.

It was pure and perfect in his twenties and thirties, but now his voice is richer and more interesting,sometimes heartbreakigly beautiful, especially in his ballads.

Think George is way to far down this list, he should be number one 😡

Amazing! Can't beat it! Listen to "So Lonely, " and be amazed... Should be much higher.

The Police are the greatest band of all time!!!

One of the most iconic voices in music history. Instantly recognizable. There is a reason that his career has extended over four decades and continues with a new rock album this year! (2016)

138 Roger Waters Roger Waters George Roger Waters, is an English singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and composer. He was mostly known for the secondary lead vocals and bassist of Pink Floyd .

WOW people. Jeez, number 283. This guy has way better vocals than Robert Plant because he can scream like a pterdactyl. Until I see Plant do that, Waters is better. Waters, Gilmour, and Wright all have amazing voices. Still don't believe me? Listen to Careful With That Axe Eugene, Echoes, or Comfortably Numb. Pink Floyd harmonizes vocals a lot better than Alice In Chains. I'm not saying Alice In Chains is bad at vocals, I'm saying Pink Floyd are masters at getting into your soul. I'd really like to see Led Zeppelin try and play Echoes and harmonize vocals the way Pink Floyd does. The Zep could never play Echoes that perfectly even if they wanted to. Another thing that adds to Echoes complexity is it's 231 minutes long, and I have never seen any of The Zep's songs that long.

He adds emotion and soul to his albums. Below Eminem? For real? Pink Floyd is the band that introduced me to music as an art form. I'm even listening to Waiting for the Worms right now. Vote for Roger!

Thanks roger, David, richard n nick for your beautiful, excellent n impressive music. You're always in my heart

Listen to Time and Comfortably Numb, and you'll believe that Roger Waters is the best vocalist ever.

Waters isn't singing on Time, it's David Gilmour and Rick Wright - DarkSideOfDragons

139 Björk Björk Björk Guðmundsdóttir, known mononymously as Björk, is an Icelandic singer and songwriter. She is most famous for her eclectic music styles and experimentation on electronic pop music.

There is only one Bjork.(Spears, Aguilera, Swift, Dion belong to one category) She is an original voice and she is so good she can sing off key to make a song sound more on key. The growling and random sounds, along with her one unique voice deserve better. There is only one other singer I know that will sing a little off key to make the song better and more emotional and that's Sia. Where is she on this list?

Why is Bjork so low down?! She has an amazing singer and so many rubbish artists are in front of her, Rhianna is higher up than Bjork and Bjork is so talented, I am upset now

She's an absolutely amazing singer, I'm shocked she's not even in the Top 250. This is an outrage.

HOW THE HELL IS BJORK NOT FIRST! She quite easily has the most unique voice in music, it is instantly recognizable! Not to mention all the notes she can hit. She has such a wide vocal range it is unreal. I am actually shocked she isn't at least on the first page! How have artists like Akon, Jay Sean and all these other artists ranked higher than Bjork! Makes no sense! LONG LIVE BJORK!
