1. Sarah Brightman

Sarah Brightman

  • I was so happy to see Sarah Brightman at #1, I agree with the voters on some of the other ladies on this list. However, miss Brightman deserves (in my humble opinion ) to be at the top of this list. Very few performers have the ability to consistently bring tears to the audiences eyes during performances. Her vocal range is unique, and her stage presence commanding. She is still the unassailed angel of music. Listen to one of her classics and wonder about all the vocally challenged “stars” like britany spears as they gyrate and grind their way around the stage to mask the mediocre voice. Remember, as a wise man once said. “Anyone can sing pop music, but it takes a world class voice to rise above “. Thanks Sarah for the world class voice, And the classy act.
  • I agree she is the best singer out of this list. I like Whitney and Mariah they belted out some great songs and had incredible live performances, but neither matches Sarah. Though there are many better Opera singers than Sarah Brightman. I believe she is closer to the pop genre. Her melodies are too long winded and whimsical to be ready friendly hits. But nevertheless having seen all three in concert/theatre I can without a doubt come to my determination.
  • I sat ten feet in front of her once at a concert. What I heard was better (i. e. her live voice) than her recordings.
  • Ok, you could say that about others. But, often the live concerts don’t match recordings, tonal intervention, etc. When Ms. Brightman sings, there is no need to utilize electronics. This a unique talent, unmatched today, since the late 1980’s.

4. Christina Aguilera

Christina Aguilera

  • Christina Aguilera is one of the few singers that is so unappreciated, but could beat out anybody else on this list if it came to who has the best vocal ability. She is an extreme inspiration to many great new singers, such as Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, and Ariana Grande, who are all talented in their own right. Christina’s vocal range and ability is so vast and powerful, giving her extreme dominance as a pop diva with her raspy but booming voice that really showcases her emotion and talent. Xtina has great control over her singing, which makes her a better singer. Her songs are incredible as well. Genie in a Bottle generated as one of the greatest pop songs of the generation,. Reflection was the lead single for the Mulan soundtrack. Beautiful, Fighter, and Walk Away became anthems. Dirrty made everybody want to dance on tables and party. Ain’t No Other Man exploded Aguilera’s career and became a popular song to cover by many artist on singing competitions. Candyman and Makes Me Want To Pray were smash hits on the charts. Bionic introduced a hot new side of Christina. You Lost Me expressed emotion and shook audiences everywhere, like Hurt, which also had its own emotion emulates strongly as well. Your Body blasted Christina’s sexual side and Just A Fool mixed Aguilera’s talent with Blake Shelton’s country flare. Collaborations with Maroon 5, Pitbull, TI, Lady Gaga, and A Great Big World expressed Xtina’s artistry and brought her to the frontline of the charts. This Princess of Pop, who is also considered as the Voice of the Generation, is also a great actress, mother, mentor, and activist. Overall, Christina Aguilera is the greatest singer of the 21st Century hands down.
  • Christina has so much emotion and talent in everything she sings and that she is real artist! Her voice is so powerful and Christina can control it like a master. Why someone would say that they don’t like Christina cause how she seems to be or what kind of impression you get? And how good songs she write! She is a talented young lady and she can act, too! She is perfect singer-songwriter and actress! And yes, she is so much better than Alicia Keys, Mariah Carey, Beyoncé and Whitney Houston. They aren’t in this list as Christina. You should listen her songs and how much emotion she puts in those songs. I’m OK and Oh Mother are strong as Hurt and she can sing all kinds of music.
  • Christina is “The Voice” of her generation and that it is a fact.

9. Rihanna


  • She is the greatest female singer ever
  • I mean look at her newly released singles, 3 of them-1. What’s my name,2. Only Girl and 3. S&m held number 1 position one after the other in the US charts… And still her position is so low… Please vote for her…
  • I can’t believe that you don’t vote for her. Have you ever really listened to her well? She’s got fantastic voice!
  • I think rihanna would be the artist of the decade look at all the hits she has ten number ones that a lot of number ones in only five years? Selling over 5,000,657 in the us and over 20,789,456 worldwide! She might not be as rich as beyonce but she sure got some talent

Beyonce Knowles

  • Shes should be on top.. Shes a whole package, she sings while dancing.. But she really perfectly did both… Shes just a masterpiece… I love her… Shes sweet and humble.. If I were you. I will vote her ;;;;;
  • Beyonce’s probably 1 of the best singers and performers of all time! I mean… Listen to her amazing vocal skills, the runs, the riffs the scales. Not to mention the power, range and versatility of her voice that are simply outstanding. She’s also an awesome dancer and a good actress. She’s the complete package.. And history proves it… She’s won more grammy’s than whitney in her prime.. And than all of the other modern musicians and singers.. She’s the most praised and recognized American artist of the last decade. Enough said
  • I can’t believe that beyonce is below Rihanna on this list! People, don’t you get tired of having A Rihanna album released yearly? And beyonce doesn’t always sing about sex either, which makees her all the better. Surveys show that way more people find beyonce attractive than Rihanna… Anyway.. With songs like sweet dreams and irreplaceable, you know beyonce is the real queen. VOTE BEYONCE!

Best Female Singers of All Time

1. Whitney Houston

Whitney Houston

  • By far Whitney has the most voice control ever, she has set the standards for singing that has not been matched, she is also the most influential singer in the world.
  • Love you whitney you just the best singer I ever heard and the most awarded. Maybe your voice isn’t there anymore but I will always love you for the joy and the emotions you give me when I hear your songs.
  • Who on earth can compare to Whitney Houston when she is on the stage? Thank God to bestow the greatest singer of all time that we all can enjoy her beautiful voice. Even though she cannot sing like she used to be in the late 1990s, her incomparable voice and all beautiful melodies will always impress in my mind.

Whitney Houston 2

2. Mariah Carey


  • Put simply, there is just NO other singer in the world that can make the hair on the back of your neck stand up, to the same degree as Mariah Carey. It’s her range; her tonal sound; her accuracy of pitch; her ‘trills’ (vocal runs); and her upper power when hitting high notes that made her one of the all time greats. Sure, there are many great singers and she’s perhaps not as good as what she was in the 90’s, but that’s more been her change in musical direction rather than a decline in ability – she’s well and truly proved that with her 2010 Christmas Concert in recorded in Washington last year. PLUS, she writes all her own songs, when too many of the big names these days, unfortunately don’t!
  • Mariah’s voice is just incomparable, there’s nothing else I can say about it, its beautifully pure, angelic and very very unique. Just an all round perfect voice with the ability of going really being like a big bonus. Just listen to Never Too Far to get a sense of what shes capable of and then listen to Bliss which shows off her higher range (whistle notes)
  • I LOVE HER she is very consistent with his work, although when I she was not famous anymore as it once was, but around the world who does not know the voice capability is pretty amazing. Class singer Beyonce was even I do not think it can match its octave voice is very high.

3. Celine Dion


  • Definitely deserves #1. I have never heard a singer who gives me chills up and down the spine as she does. Just listen to her rendition of “Oh Holy Night”. Her range is beyond incredible.
  • Celine deserves the number 1 spot. Come on, she has recorded songs with some of the worlds greatest singers and sings very well in five different languages. She sings like an angel and has such charm about her. Stop talking about beyonces look here because we are talking about voices and by far celine is number one, mariah is number two, whitney is number three and of them all, celine has been the most consistent with her records and has passed mariah to become the worlds best selling female vocalist of all time.
  • Celine is the most versatile singer in the world and here is why :

Listen to “that’s just the woman in me” and you will understand, knowing her as a crystal clear voice… And than a totally new sound, new texture in the most powerful notes of this song… It blew me away… I couldn’t believe what I just listen to. And now ask MC or WH or CA or anybody out there to ( try ) to do this: they will cry and will acknowledge that only Celine can do this. She can imitate a electric garage door, a piano, a flute, trumpet. Etc… She is a chameleon with her voice, flawless, perfect control, most power voice in the high notes with stamina ( All by myself ) and the list goes on and on and on… Truly the best.

4. Christina Aguilera

Christina Aguilera

  • She has one of the highest vocal ranges in music history, a superb 4 octave range! She is definitely one of the best and one of the highest selling artists!
  • Christina is clearly an extremely talented singer that puts her all into her music. Her vocal ability is absolutely outstanding. She sings because it’s what she loves to do. Christina Aguilera is a very inspiring singer that will never lose her amazing voice. She is the best singer of the generation, and absolutely one of the best singers of all time. She sings to express herself, and she doesn’t care if that means less album sales, or less popularity. Christina, never stop singing.
  • Christina aguilera seriously how is she not top 5 or even first she is beautiful brilliant singer always has a standing ovation and you never cease to be amazed and amazing vocal range

5. Adele


  • Are you freaking kidding me?!
  • Adele is below Kesha, Lady Gaga, and Hillary Duff…?
  • Adele is definitely top 3 material.
  • You moronic people voting for Disney channel kids and pop blunders need to get a grip on what TALENT is…
  • This woman is unbelievable. Sure, whitney, beyonce etc are impressive singers, but only listening to adeles pure voice gives me the chills
  • Adele has amazing talent! She is one of the greatest singers of all times! Why is she on 127th place? I don’t get it.. Adele is an incredible person and singer-songwriter! Vote for her!

6. Beyonce Knowles

Beyonce Knowles

  • This woman is amazing. Her voice is just out of this world, and completely flawless!
  • Just watch her perform. She puts all of her soul in her singing.
  • By the way, being a devoted fan, I decided to watch The Beyoncé Experience Live. Some minutes later, I noticed I was crying like a baby. That’s how Queen Bee leaves me with one of her greatest performances of all time. You guys have to check it out.
  • Beyonce is the singer at all the time she has lots of talents than any other female singer. Beyonce she is sexy and beautiful than any other women. Beyonce is better than rihanna and lady gaga even better than any other female singer. THEIR IS ONLY ONE BEYONCE IN THE WORLD…
  • Beyonce is my ultimate idol. She is so talented! She can sing, dance, and act! I also love her song irreplaceable for me she is the best!

7. Sarah Brightman

Sarah Brightman

  • She has an astonishing ability to adapt her voice to sing (brilliantly) in any musical style or genre – pop, rock, opera, etc. For sheer multi-dimensional singing talent and versatility, “Sexy Sarah” undoubtedly outshines the other female vocalists on this list – even the other great ones! She continually moves with the times and keeps coming up with new and inspired ideas – buy any (or all) of her albums “Fly”, “Dive”, Eden”, “La Luna”, “Harem”, “Timeless”, “Live In Vienna” and you won’t be disappointed. Bear in mind however that they’re all different! (And I’ve only recently ‘discovered’ her! )
  • I really am not an avid opera fan, but she puts a spin on what we call “average opera”. She has modernised opera like no other artist. Also her vocal range is much greater than all the other artists. Even though she is not a big name in the United States, she is highly respected in the music industry. She does not use annoying amounts of auto tune. Not only that but she is an inspiring artist to youngsters like Jackie Evancho. Her live performances is truly a once in a life time expiranc. She has talent that cannot compare to anyone on this list. Most importantly her humble and kind nature seperates her from everyone on this list.
  • Her music and performances have moved me like no other.
  • I love her recordings, but her live performances are an experience like no other.
  • She is out of this world, I’ve never felt such emotion wash over me, all the while every hair on my body standing on end. She’s a modern day Muse or Siren.

8. Amy Lee

Amy Lee

  • 8the best!
  • love her beautiful voice!
  • she amazing!
  • Amy and Evanescence forever!
  • She must be first!
  • Sincerely, Amy Lee deserves the first place, her voice is the most amazing I have ever heard, so beautiful that I run to my dad every time I hear her and tell him, judge her, he just says, wow.. I ran out of words, all I gotta say is that my dream is to sing like her, almost impossible.. But she has an Angel Voice.
  • Why is she so low on this list, her vocals are amazing and her songs are enchanting

9. Aretha Franklin

Aretha Franklin

  •  Are you kidding me? Arethra Franklin widely is widely accepted as the greatest singer of all time, not just the greatest female singer. And she’s been placed below Miley Cyrus here… Really? Please just listen to her sing respect and THEN vote. Aretha Franklin is BY FAR one of the greatest singers of all time
  • Rolling stone rated her #1 for the greatest singers of all time. She was even higher than a bunch of guys she should be #1 on this list

10. Charice Pempengco

Charice Pempengco

  • +100Yes! I think she’s one of the best in singing because of her powerful voice at her young age.
  • CHARICE is the only celebrity/singer/artist that I’m very fascinated and addicted by monitoring anything related to her everyday… Spending an average of about 4hrs a day in my computer at home or in the office just to read news/articles/blogs/etc, watch old and new online videos – not including listening to her music from my mobile/notebook and watching from time to time some saved favorite performances… Only a fellow chaster will understand my CHAddiction! For me, she’s not only the best singer of all time but also a very good inspiration for all who dare to dream and take action to make it happen.
  • I was hooked the first time I heard Charice on Oprah, in May 2008.
  • Charice’s video performances are so consistently perfect that she has been repeatedly (and falsely) accused of lip-synching. As incredible as her video performances are, though, her concert performances are absolutely unbelievable. Simply put, Charice consistently delivers a pitch-perfect combination of technical skill, emotion, and pure raw power year that leaves David Foster shaking his head in disbelief. She gives her audiences chills and goosebumps & reduces grown men to tears. (A fact to which I can personally attest. ) I have NEVER seen Charice give a bad performance; in fact, I have never seen her give less than 110%. Despite her increasing fame, Charice is unpretentious and truly grateful to all who have helped her. And all of this is in a petite package less than 5 feet tall.
  • I can’t get enough of this super-talented young lady. I’ve seen her perform live four times (from stage side, and the 2nd & 6th rows) and met her. I’ve downloaded well over 100 of her videos & gotten her signature on three photos (including one of us).
  • I have NEVER been more addicted to a performer (or performers). And this is from someone who saw the Beatles perform live! ) later, I flew to Las Vegas to see her perform with David Foster & attended her 17th b-day the next day. I met her that November, after my 2nd DF concert. I next saw her perform in San Francisco in May 2009, just before the release of her 1st album; I saw her for the fourth time last July 16 in Napa. I have 100 videos of her performances & 3 signed photos (incl one of er video performances are so perfect that she has repeatedly been accused (falsely) of lip-synching. Us).

Best British Female Singers

1. Adele


  • She is the crossover singer in the history of female singers in the world. 21 is still topping across various charts. Can you believe it?
  • I think she’s the only singer that’s can be sexy without wearing something slutty and can actually sing well when she’s live.
  • People like Adele come once in a few generations. They become a living poem, a moving masterpiece. Comparing just becomes silly.

2 Amy Winehouse

Amy Winehouse

  • If we speak about really great voice, this girl should be # 1. Besides, she sang not because she wanted to be famous singer, like others did. She simply couldn’t live without singing. That’s why she IS famous now.
  • If it hadn’t been for Amy Winehouse this list would have been almost empty. She opened up for many other female artist plus she gave the world a lot with her talent. She is amazing and she will always be remembered. Her voice is better than most artists that exist. We love Amy Winehouse and she definitely should be number one on this list.
  • As a matter of fact, amy is the only one on this list who can be called a legend. She was a genius, and to our dismay the price of a genius is her ultimate tragic death. Simply peerless, both voice and image-wise.

Jessie J

  • Jessie J never fails when she sings, and she cannot only sing, but she can also beatbox and play with her voice in so many other ways. You can feel her mood when she sings.

6. Florence Welch

Florence Welch

  • No sound can match hers Florence is one of the most talented singers of all time even Adele doesn’t have a voice like hers because her voice is the voice of an angle
