Hey,

As a companion to Hayley's thread - who are the best female singing voices?

IMO Judith Durham had one of the best female voices I've ever heard She had a beautiful clear, operatic voice but could sing different styles. She really wanted to be a jazz/blues singer.

I would say K.D. Lang. Her voice simply glides through songs. One of a few singers who actually sounds even better live than she does on cd. Her voice is simply magical http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b3pyVEOw3lQ Gives me chills

Other mentions..

Sarah Dawn Finer http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=npjy_...e=channel_page (infact I think Sarah Dawn Finer has my favourite voice ever!)
Alison Moyet
Barbra Streisand
Beverley Knight
Patricia Kaas
Natasha Khan of Bat For Lashes
Whitney Houston (in her prime)
Amy Winehouse
Bonnie Tyler
Anastacia
Sarah Vaughn

For me it has to be Ella Fitzgerald and Aretha Franklin:

Of course here are the now obligatory Youtube clips:

Aretha:

Ella:

An honourable mention goes to Elkie Brooks. Here is a rare clip of her singing with Vinegar Joe. If you look closely you will see a young Robert Palmer on guitar on the right:

Totally agree with these 3. Just hope Winehouse can get her act together. She has a great voice.

I also love Sia. An amazing voice.
