MARIAH HAS A VERY ANGELIC VOICE… I ALMOST GET DEAF WHENEVER I HEAR CHARICE, NOT THAT SHE’S NOT GOOD. BUT SHE ALWAYS SCREAMS ESPECIALLY IF IT’S A DUET… SHE’LL SCREAM EVEN IF SHE’S ALREADY OFF KEY. :P

Sarah Geronimo can sing in different genres… And she’s good at all of them. And when she can’t do something, she’ll admit it and not struggle to do it because she know she can’t unlike Charice.”

Vote for Karen Carpenter 64) Karen Carpenter

“lol… this list is a joke! Karen Carpenter at #58?

My favorite vocalist, by far, is Karen Carpenter. Her voice has an inherent melancholy quality which makes it perfect for the Carpenters’ many melancholy and sad songs. She had such a vulnerability in her voice that it makes me want to give her a comforting hug.

Nowhere will you find a voice as smooth and silky as hers. Some people say Barbra Streisand’s voice is “like butter. ” I believe that distinction belongs to Karen.

But Karen’s voice possesses so many qualities and facets that I love. It is soothing and sweet, loving. And sometimes when she hits those super-low notes, it sends a chill up my spine to this day.

And sometimes when she is singing tenderly, her voice crackles, and again, you hear that vulnerability.

Some other adjectives I can use to describe her voice are warm, sincere, touching, loving, and soothing. It wraps you up like a fluffy blanket on a cold day. The emotion in her voice is inherent. She doesn’t need to yell to make you understand what she is feeling. All she has to do is sing sweetly and gently and you know.

I will forever treasure that voice and mourn the loss of Richard Carpenter’s little sister.”

jonk0469

“Karen Carpenter was in a league all by herself. Nobody else comes close to touching her brillance as a singer and a performer.”

“Roy Orbison had a vocal range of 5 octave (arguably). The majarity of his compositions were the 3 to 4. 5 that he’s most recognized for. However, if you listen to some earlier works you’ll be able to hear 4 distinct octave variables and, as I said, arguably, a 5th.”

“”Roy Orbison’s vocal range was impressive (four octaves), his voice effortlessly powerful, and his songs were melodically and rhythmically advanced and lyrically sophisticated, often incorporating the bolero form.””
