Top Ten Whistle Register SingersThe whistle register, also known as the flute register, is the highest register of the human voice, laying above the falsetto register. Some singers have been able to sing in this register, although this is rare.
The Top Ten
Minnie inspired everyone to sing in this register; Mariah even lists her as an influence. Able to imitate bird calls and instruments such as flutes and piccolos, Minnie sports a five octave vocal range and was the first singer to make this note popular. A fun fact is that she is the mother of Maya Rudolph, Saturday Night Live comedienne/actress.
Minnie could not only sing in the whistle register but enunciate clearly and effortlessly. She was and is, hands down, the best. Chante Moore is the next closest to coming anywhere near Minnie's style.
The real champ of this category; all the rest including Mariah Carey and especially Ariana Grande are just pale imitations.
Kudos to the OP for knowing she is Maya Rudolph's mom.
She could possibly be the original whistle singer. She has even inspired Mariah Carey!
Whistle notes are her thing! Yes, she isn't the only one who has done it, or the first. BUT, she made it wildly popular. She has inspired musicians who are known for their whistle notes such as Ariana Grande.
Its funny how these people are so jealous of her, calling her fatty and yet you can't even come close to her level with your slim body and just to let you know Mariah's foot dust heck even her spit is of a higher quality that you haters and your favorite will never come close to... bye bye
Many people can whistle but only mariah can do it like she knows every nerve in her throat
Awesome much because she is the queen
I'd listen to Shanice's beautiful voice over mariah carey's ugly yelling any day honestly.
Pariah Scary is no comparison and her voice is just like her face and personality, ugly!
Shanice, no doubt about this chick! She makes Mariah fatty seem irrelevant.
Much better than Mariah Fatty honestly, yeah I said it!
Wide variety of range and hits the whistle register effortlessly with no obvious jump off point.
I love how much emotion she puts into her voice. Her vocal breaks are to die for.
She has whistle register shes a queen
She's not human
His sustained D8 (live! ) is out of this world. And off the piano.
Many singers can hit whistle note but none of them sounds as pleasant as Dimash. Also he is the most technically gifted singer of our generation. I mean WHO THE HELL CAN SING DIVA DANCE THAT EASILY?.
One of the best female singers out there. Such agility and control. And her whistles are incredible!
This girl has been singing whistle notes since she was a TEENAGER, maybe even as a kid. Yes, she didn't always know how to do it correctly at first, but they still were impressive, and she's learned by now. She hits some of the highest whistle notes, both on her songs and live. She should be regarded as one of the best whistle note singers.
Ari should be #1 becauase unlike other whistlers Ariana has hit higher notes than Christina,Minnie and Tori. She is the best singer of all time in my opinion. Many people dislike her but their mad that she can do a whistle register but they can't.
Whistle note in "No pain no gain" performance is way better than Mariah. I love Mariah but Betty beats her at Whistle register.
Um no disrespect to Whitney but her highest known note was a FALSETTO C♯6 in "I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me)." That's a far cry from accessping the whistle register. While that note can be sung in the whistle register, it's simply not in Whitney's case. I have little doubt that she could have accessed the register if she wanted to, but she's never demonstrated it publicly.
The voice from Japan, Misia worked with David Froster, Erykah Badu, JD,etc.. Check! People
