Best Singers of All Time

141 Sting Sting Gordon Matthew Thomas Sumner CBE, known professionally by his stage name Sting, is an English musician, singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, activist, actor, and philanthropist.

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)

Bro he's asctuallly dopealicious list3n to his songs fooggots

142 Benjamin Burnley Benjamin 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.

Can't beat him. No one knows him so therefore he's this far down on the list. Don't let metal suffocate in pop and hip-hop, and look up Breaking Benjamin in your spare time. - Giusti97

In my mind, Ben one of my favorite male singers, along with Roy Khan. Both are fantastic singers, with powerful, beautiful voices. It doesn't hurt that they both sing with phenomenal bands, and some of the best songs I've ever heard. (For the record, Breaking Benjamin is my favorite band, and Simone Simmons is my favorite singer of all time -- I don't see her on this list, though).

Hands down, my personal favorite of this list so far. I've gone out of my way to be a die-hard breaking benjamin fan. His songs are just epic. My favorite heavy songs are "I Will Not Bow" and "Had Enough", while Burnley is able to slow things down with "Forget It" and "Rain". He is incredibly, ridiculously underrated and tied for my fave singer of all time with Shaun Morgan.

143 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!

Why is she so low on the list? She's been singing for half a century & for her age her voice is amazing. An amazing contralto voice that is easily recognized. Also she still performs on stage (most of the performance is real singing) & stays connected with her fans. She's the Goddess Of Pop, she deserves top 10... (Comment coming from a teenage fan of hers).

Its sad nobody knows who cher is anymore :( but we all know she should be at least top 10 cause she blows me away with her voice

Your fantastic

146 Ella Fitzgerald Ella Fitzgerald Ella Jane Fitzgerald was an American jazz singer often referred to as the First Lady of Song, Queen of Jazz and Lady Ella.

Oh my gosh. This is ridiculous. On what planet are Drake, Eminem, Jennifer Lopez, Justin BEIBER, AND NICKI MINAJ better than ELLA FITGERALD!? Her voice was liquid gold and her range was far better than any modern pop singer. All you have to be able to do as a pop singer is not be tone deaf, and they can auto tune the rest. Rappers just have to be able to talk fast, and this list is for the best SINGERS of all time. Come on guys.

I think a lot of people here are too young,.. Maybe they don't even know who she is... - ChatonNoir

now i can see that here votes people with no idea of music
ella rocks

A voice of pure gold, should be up in the top ten.

One of the best singers of all time. Has a voice like silk

Listening to Ernie is like being wrapped in a blanket while wearing a smile. Comedy, sorrow, religion, folk, patriotic--Ernie could do it all, and do it with a voice like warm honey.

150 Jared Leto Jared Leto

His vocal range is amazing. Almost nobody knows what is his range, But everybody knows that is the best. I love Jared, his voice and 30 Seconds to Mars.

Jared is able to show a large range with his voice. He can go from a harsher rock sound, to a punk sound, to a sound completely unique and all his own. It would be very hard for others to show such range (including some of the people higher up on the list). You can recognize his sound, and he has extreme passion, and his lyrics have MEANING. Truly inspirational. Clearly should be in the top 10. Easily in the top 5. In my opinion, #1

Amazing vocal range that doesn't sound cheesy... Amazing vibrato, and low range and insane high range energy and screaming! And best of all its all original...

Why he is not the first?!

151 Sia Furler Sia Furler

Sia should be in the top 10 of the list. She has one of the best voices around here and can easily be considered the voice of our generation. Sia can add to the emotional aspect of any song and she has great power in her voice. She even coaches singers such as Christina Aguilera, another excellent singer.

Sia has an awesome raw voice, and she is has had such an impact on the music industry. She's just coming out of her shell with her new album 1000 forms of fear

Surely she is one of the best singer/songwriter in the world. Her voice is so astonishingly beautiful

Sia is great. I believe he deserve to be on the top spot.

152 Enrique Iglesias Enrique Iglesias Enrique Miguel Iglesias Preysler, known professionally as Enrique Iglesias, is a Spanish singer, songwriter, record producer and actor.

Enrique is the best singer of all time. He sings from his soul and no one can be compared with him. He is even better than Michael Jackson. He deserves to be on the top. This list is wrong. Love you enrique!

Enrique is best no one can beat him. He has quality in his song, he deserves to be no1 unfortunately this list is wrong. First listen Michael jackson and then listen enrique, you will realize that enrique is best 4 ever

Enrique deserves to be number 1. He can sing way better then Michael Jackson. This list is so wrong.

Yes I love him - galaco

154 Fergie Fergie Stacy Ann "Fergie" Ferguson is an American singer, songwriter, fashion designer, television host, and actress.

Fergie (contrary to popular belief) is a very talented singer (as shown in the song "Finally" by her, her cover of "Barracuda" and if you listened to her whole album you'd see also if you listened to her in the background doing vocal runs in black eyed peas albums like "Monkey Business" and "Elephunk" you'd see, she's unique! Also if you listened to her sing "Gettin' Over You" live, your opinion would change! I swear! :) Fergie forever! Also 316? How about at least 10!

Fergie is a beautiful an amazing singer and she has so much talent in her I just love her style

Maybe the best earthly voice... (diamonds & rust live '98) you will cry for some reason if you hear it!

156 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.

Brittney Spears ahead of James what a joke?

159 Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan

Nusrat was a true Music Leader. He belonged to that rare class of Human Beings who understood the language of music. This is the language he used to communicate to people who did not know his language. He sang at concerts in Paris, Japan, Spain, Italy, England, USA and many other countries. Attending his concerts was a life changing experience. It was as if the participants understood what he was singing. His command over musical notes was so powerful that he could evoke different emotions through his vocal delivery in seconds that other "great" vocalists and instrumentalists would take hours to do so.

Mesmerizing!

A world-renowned Pakistani musician. I Have no idea why nobody thought of this Legend yet.

He is no doubt one of the greatest singer of all time.

Nusrat fateh ali khan is a legend
he should include in top ten
