Man, is anybody here younger than 70? :>) How about Brandon Flowers, Alicia Keys, Christina Aguilera?

treeman, I agree that Christina Aguilera is one of the new greats!

But if you haven't checked out some of the old timey greats... you missin' some killer singin'...

Like I said before, it's really hard for me to hear anyone I like more than Ella. Maybe best ever for me.

Treeman: I'm younger than 70, and happen to believe that there are better contemporary greats than those you listed.

What about Jeff Buckley? Elliot Smith? Rufus and Martha Waignright?

I'm really suprised nobody in the thread so far has mentioned Jeff Buckley, such an amazing vocalist. As was his father.

"Treeman: I'm younger than 70, and happen to believe that there are better contemporary greats than those you listed."

The OP asked for "favorite singers" not greatest. I was just pokin' a little fun anyway, but it's funny when somebody's favorite singer has either been dead 20 years, or did their most notable work years ago. My point is that there's good stuff out there RIGHT NOW! It reminds me of guys I've been in bands with who say that nothing good has been recorded since 1972, or WHENEVER! Just funnin'!

Treeman: Haha sorry if that came off a little hostile sounding, it wasn't intended like that at all. It's just that you said "How about..." so I thought I'd give my opinion about them.

Hmmmm...the ones that stand out for me at the moment:

Sara Carter (Rest in Peace)
Roberta Flack
Irma Thomas
Ari Up (wacky, but 'muscular' voice)
Tina Turner
Patsy Cline (Rest in Peace)
Natalie Maines (I know she can be grating at times, but she has the voice of a West Texas angel)
Linda Ronstadt

Neil Young (big time...a voice from the human heart)
Mick Jagger (I just love his old gospel and blues singing styles)
Hank Williams (Rest in Peace....so stark and lonely)
Waylon Jennings (Rest in Peace....as earnest as they come)
John Lennon (Rest in Peace....always riveting performances)
Howlin' Wolf (Rest in Peace)
Johnny Cash (Rest in Peace)
Bono (outstanding, just listened to 'Beautiful Day' again recently)

Roy and Dino may never be topped.

Haven't heard Paul Carrack listed, he's a goodie.

Aretha and Allison.

Aaron Neville.

Agree with the first post about Burton.

Coverdale had a great hard rock voice.
