The Best Female Vocalists Ever

List Criteria: Vote up the singers who can bring the best music to your ears with their voices.

List of the best female singers of all time, ranked by music fans and casual critics like you. Who are the greatest female vocalists ever? This list includes everyone from Aretha Franklin to Stevie Nicks to Christina Perri – those great women in music who have topped the charts for decades. Both solo singers and famous frontwomen in bands are among those on this list, as it is their voices to focus on here, not just their careers.

Vote: The Greatest Women in Music, 1980s to Today

This list of the top female singers are both living, like Adele and Madonna, and long gone, like Nico and Amy Winehouse, though their albums and singles continue to sell to loyal and new audiences. Vote up those great female voices you think should be at the top of the list, and vote down those who you think come in a bit flat. Click "rerank" to make a list of your own!
