McLachlan here. Plenty of fine ladies to fill the second spot but for me, Sarah has got to be the one. The wife and I like her so much, we danced our first dance with her singing the song "Push". It was a pleasure to see her last time she came to Charlotte.

Whitney Houston (for voice) and Sarah McLachlan (for singer/songwriter) and Stevie Nicks (for her work overall).

Maria Callas

She created her own art, and some people hated it because it wasn't classically beautiful, but who cares it sounded way better and she is by far not only the most talented soprano of all time, but her veracity, her willingness to show facts, accuracy, and honesty in very aspect of her career is so amazing even on top of all her talent. She didn't care about beauty as much as she cared about creating her own honest style that to this day has changed the way sopranos sing, she was honest and cared solely about what she wanted to accomplish and not what everyone else thought if her. She broke through with unbelievable talent that was her own individual sounds that were out of the norm, but were so amazing. I hate opera singers apt just because I find orbiting, although they do hAve some of the most astonishingly and amazingly beautiful voices, it's just not my genre of choice. Without callas being the first soprano to breakout of the norm of society, and create her ow even more amazing ...more.
It's Maria Callas, does anything else need to be said but, anyway easily the greatest female opera singer of all time. The love of her life wasn't another human but, opera music and when one listens to her singing you can instantaneously hear that love. She also, possessed a great ability to be able to sing the greatest love of her life and, in doing so provided the world with the greatest opera singer the world has ever seen. Marvellous Maria Callas, your legacy will live forever!
Decades after Callas's death and her legend lives on. Ask the person in the street to name a female opera singer and chances are the answer will be, "Maria Callas" - the same cannot be said for others on this list! Callas's interpretations may not always have been the most technically accurate, but her emotion, passion and soul shone through. And isn't that what art is all about? The ability to stir something inside you that cannot always be explained? It is rather like Monet's "smears" and "blobs". At face value they are not technically art, but when you look at the whole picture, it is beautiful... For me, Callas's vocal range was unsurpassed by others of her genre, which gave her the most amazing versatility. Plus she was a person who refused to conform to a mould, especially in a time when women tended to have less freedom than they enjoy now. Yes, she made mistakes, but Callas's honesty made her human and a beautiful person. And for all of these reasons, her legend lives on.
8th Wonder of the World.

OK, NorthStar, you got me.

The opera singers you posted brought a tears to my eyes.

NOBODY else mentioned is anywhere near as good as they are.

IYO. There is no clear "winner" on personal opinions or experiences with regards to one's favorite female singer Gary. ;)

Hi

Difficult to choose just one person.

There are those voices who will stop your thought once you hear them .. SOmetimes not even understanding a word or the language sung.
Ellis Regina was that.. One of the best singer the world has known. Just .. just unbelievable


One of her most accessible album is the Classic: Tom & Ellis ( Antonio Carlos "Tom" Jobim and Elis Regina) on Philips

Mariah Carey is one of my favorite female singers. This song, "Without You", is one of my reference cuts when listening to something new.

I don't have an opinion on Opera singers as I rarely listen to it and don't have enough knowledge to make an informed selection. I can say the same for Jazz, but from what I have heard I do like Ella Fitzgerald. I just cannot get into Sarah Vaughan.

Since I listen mostly to rock, folk, pop, R&B/Soul my overall choice would be Sarah McLachlan.
