He is the best for ever...

142 Cher Cher Cher is an American singer and actress. Described as embodying female autonomy in a male-dominated industry, she is known for her distinctive contralto singing voice and for having worked in numerous areas of entertainment, as well as adopting a variety of styles and appearances during her five-decade-long more.


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

What this list can't be right cher should be number 1

143 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.

She surely deserves to be much higher than 146. - Singer4Freedom

144 Tennessee Ernie Ford Tennessee Ernie Ford

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.

145 Messiah Marcolin Messiah Marcolin

Top 20 at least.

146 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.

This is a long and wrong list... Enrique Iglesias is the best!

148 Sia Furler Sia Furler

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

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.

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

Sia should be in the top ten! Her voice is unique and powerful! Her song lyrics are so deep and meaningful, Sia is truly incredible! TEAM SIA!

149 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.

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

156 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.


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.

LOL. why the hell on earth is he so down on 157?! - Singer4Freedom

157 Janet Jackson Janet Jackson Janet Jackson is a singer and dancer who is well known for her sexually graphic records, iconic performances, and slightly weak voice. She is regarded as a sex symbol through her songs and videos.

Janet Jackson should be tied with her brother. I mean like their the best of the of them all. They are still the best in this industry and still will be. But congrats at least she didn't come lower.

Janet is a good singer and was and still a good sister to Michael. Janet is beautiful, but she's been acting sexually crazy and freaky. I like that in female singers. I wish I could be disciplined by her like in her song Discipline.

Morteza pashaei=first in the world - nazli

I came all the way here to see one of the greatest artists of all time with an amazing voice to be 151 while Demi lovato is 50 what.

She is the Queen of Hip Hop soul and has come a long way. Now we all know that when she was on drugs she didnt always sound the best, but when she was in her element, you cant mess with her. Now that she has been off the drugs her voice is amazing. She has her own style that no one else has. Should be in the top!!!
