Top Ten Whistle Register Singers

The 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

1 Minnie Riperton

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.

She was born on June 26th 1993 in Boca Raton, Florida to Joan Grande and Edward Butera. She is best known for her role as Cat Valentine on the Nickelodeon sitcom Victorious and its spin-off show Sam & Cat. more.

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.

19 Whitney Houston Whitney Houston Whitney Elizabeth Houston (August 9, 1963 – February 11, 2012) was an American singer, actress, producer, and model. In 2009, Guinness World Records cited her as the most awarded female act of all time. Houston is one of pop music's best-selling music artists of all-time, with an estimated 170–200 more.

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. - theOpinionatedOne
