List Criteria: Vote up the greatest soprano voice singers in non-classical music.

Who are the greatest soprano singers of all time? This soprano vocalist list certainly includes some of the most well-known vocalists in music history. But there's one thing to keep in mind: these are non-classical music sopranos, so no opera allowed. This leaves a lot of room to rank the greatest soprano singers – without automatically saying “Maria Callas, of course!”

Who comes to mind immediately when you think of soprano vocalists? Soprano voice singers, with their higher range, are certainly popular, sought-after vocalists. The best soprano singers are able to hit the high notes with ease, resulting in a clear, bright tone. Soprano vocalists are often the leading ladies in opera, but that also seems true for other music genres, as you’ll see on this soprano voice vocalist list.

Some of the most famous soprano singers included on this list are from multiple musical genres, including everything from pop, country, and folk music to musical theater. Yes, there are long-established top soprano voice singers on this list like Celine Dion, Mariah Carey and Alison Krauss, but there are other, newer, soprano voices in the world of pop as well, including Demi Lovato and Ingrid Michaelson.

Are these the top soprano singers ever? You decide, with your votes. Give your personal picks a nod to move them towards the top of the list, and add any singers that are missing.
