Best Female Singer of All Time
« see full list
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
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
Nothing needs to be said just amazing singer, great vocals a lot of talent really worked with some amazing artists as well.
Rated below rubbish, fake, 2-year lasting pop whores like Avril lavigne, madonna and BRITNEY? Miley Cyrus above Aretha? You indeed are brainwashed fangirls with an IQ reaching zero. People, she is just a jumpy happy schoolgirl with an average voice-which, plus, is average thanks to those magicians ediding her voice for the listeners not to become suicidal... Just get someone fix your ears! NOW!
New doesn't always mean good. Beyonce is hot and talented. Christina Aguilera truly has a great voice and range. Whitney's got a pedigree from a great family of vocal talent. However, this product shows why music critics and historians vote on the prestigious "best of" lists and not little girls. Greatness cannot be tied to current trends and record sales. This list should be called "Opinions of People Who Have a lot of TIme on Their Hands".
She swept all the grammys for almost all awards she was nominated for. Her collaboration with Lauryn Hill in "A Rose Is Still A Rose" is my favourite
As is typical with lists of this nature the naivety of whomever compiles the list shines through as they fail to list the truly grate vocalist like, etta james, chaka khan, glen Mccrea, sugar pie desanto, lollita holloway, Marlena shaw. And instead we get britney spiers I'm not sure if she can acually sing or kylie monolog, its lazy, plain lazy.
How on earth can Aretha Franklin be at no.46! Voting aside, popularity aside she is clearly top 10, top 5, top 3 for pure vocals and singing to an audience. Whether an original or cover she has the versatility and style to reach inside your soul and make you understand the meaning of music.
The Queen is the Queen by all standards... From soul, r&b, pop, gospel, classical, folk, rock, country, whatever... She set and still sets the bar of excellence for all to come... Aretha is the Queen and all the others are princesses or ladies-in-waiting!
Why isn't she number 1 in this list?! The top ten may be good, but she is the BEST! Even Rolling Stone magazine rated her as the number 1 singer OF ALL TIME! She deserves to be number 1 in this list too! Easily the most amazing singer to have existed!
Miley cyrus's songs are meaningful? Laugh out loud! Aretha Franklin should be in the top5 at least. She had attitude, emotion, and powerful lungs. Not only technically one of the greatest but probably emotionally as well
Rolling stone rated her #1 for the greatest singers of all time. That should speak volumes as she was up against men like, freddie mercuary, the beatles, otis redding, bob marley, james brown, bob dylan and so many others. She won
Hands down the best female singer. Every either singer on this list strives to sing like her. She s a goddess of singing, an undisputed master. She has the power of Whitney Houston but the tenderness of Dolly Parton.
Shes a queen why is she all the way at the bottom? She truly deserves to be in the top 5!
and aaliyah? Where is she even shes deffiantely higher than gaga no doubt about it! What wheeres the talent
I just can't understand why she's not #1 in this list. (Of course, Dusty Springfield should be somewhere up there too! ) Her singing is the type that you just CAN'T stop listening to.
No one like her, Aretha Franklin is the best singer from God's graces that we have in this world, she is the reason why many women want to sing, nobody like Aretha. Amazing grace!
A true legend that will be listened to for decades and she is ranked below pop, flash-in-the pan singers? Really, how many Grammy legend and Kennedy Honors will they win?
There's a reason that an entire generation of female artists look toward this shining star as their guiding light of vocal inspiration.
This list should be called "The favorite singers of people who clearly know very little about music, " I'm sorry but this list is not based upon talent...
Really? Lady GaGa and Katty Perry don't deserve to even be mentioned on the same premise as this musical god! I guess people just don't have good tastes anymore...
Anyone who votes for Streisand or Miley Cirus should be ashamed of thereself.Especially if you voted for Miley who cant sing at all.Top 30 famous singer easily.
What is wrong with you people! 48, 48! How can you justify placing Pink over Aretha? I don't know if your judging on popularity or raw talint. You people are nuts.
She maybe forgotten in today's cult but she has the greatest most powerful voice ever, man or woman. I am not even a fan of her music but nobody can sing like her.
aretha franklin is far and away the best female vocalist of all time, she deserves to be #1 and ahead of all these soon to pass into oblivion, pseudo pop stars
I can't believe that singers who are regularly using autotune and are much worse live (Gaga, Beyonce, Amy Lee) are all listed higher than Aretha. Shame.
