    There are some amazing singers in music, but who is the best? Let's put all looks and booty and abs to the side and let's talk about real talent. Not talking about who's album had better beats and stuff like that. Who has the best voices in music. Pure voices. Men and women. Not studio musicians who can't sing on tour, or who have to Milly Vanilly it.

    Let's do

    1. Men
    2. Women
    3. Overall...men and women

    or for the women

    1. Women
    2. Men
    3. Overall....men and women

    These are my top choices from current artists (based on voice purity, emotion shown, range):

    1. Chante Moore or Marsh Ambrosia (the singer from Floetry)
    2. John Legend
    3. Not quite sure who's best overall

    Radical Faith, that is quite a list that you have there.

    I'm in total agreement with the heiroglyphics ~

    But you know you missed Earth Wind & Fire
