At number one I would have Michael Jackson and Barbra Striesand tied and ALONE, lol.

The rest, in no particular order

2. Steve Perry
3. Celine Dion
4. Stevie Wonder
5. Al Green
6. Donna Summer
7. Dionne Warwick
8. James Taylor
9. Sam Cooke
10. Patsy Cline

There's others that would be tide with some I put in the top ten, but just off the top of my head, those singers are in the top ten, in terms of pure vocal talent and then style. People like Billie Holiday and Frank Sinatra I would put in the top ten based purely on what brilliant stylists they were and for Holiday, emotive ability. Also people like Christopher Cross, Mel Torme, Karen Carpenter, all belong in the top 10.

1. Michael Jackson
2. Janet
3. Frank Sinatra
4. Celine Dion
5. Stevie Wonder
6. Diana Ross
7. Christina Agulira
8. Mariah Carey
9. Whitney Houston
10.Lucino Pavarotti

I know there are a lot of differences but Pavarotti had and incredible strong voice and I also wanted to put James Brown too cause he was a showman, I also like Frank Sinatra he was so talented but i also like Marvin Gaye and particularly black artists not to be racist but their voice and vocal capabilities are incredible, nothing against caucasian artists either. Like is said Christina is so powerful and gutsy vocally and Celine is so strong in her upper notes while Mariah follows suit with Celine in a way. Whitney to me has the gutsy sound of Christina but also is able to hit the notes that Celine can and really deliver them. I also love Cher to her verbrato is so good and she is probably the only one that could do justice to the songs she has done her voice is so unique and beautiful you know it when you hear it!

I also love Cher

I really like Cher a lot. She's very talented in an array of different fields and I've always thought she did excellent music. She's opeining in Vegas in place of Celine Dion, along with Bette Midler, and I'm hoping to go see her soon.

That's a great song. Both "Believe" and "Living Proof" are excellent albums as well, with songs like "Song for the Lonely" and "The Power". Her best album is probably "It's A Man's World". That's a great, great album.
