... or rather the three with the greatest voices (whether or not you liked their songs/music):

1. Dusty Springfield;

2. Karen Carpenter;

3. Whitney Houston.

Sadly all gone now, due to either drugs or physical/mental problems.

And please don't try and correct my list - as I know I am right, and in that I am most verily unanimous.

Surely everybody dies from some physical problem.

KC has the best voice ever, there will never be another person who will be able to sing quite like her, she was 1 in a billion. Study her, emulate her, but you will never be quite as good.

Rihanna??! No.
Christina Aguilera just screams and screeches, sucking out every bit of potential emotion from a song...

I would say Beyonce, Whitney, and Mariah.

Adele is just very overrated.

Can't choose three but if I was to choose one it would be Rebecca Black.

In terms of who is currently active in the business, and based purely on vocals I would say:

Leona Lewis
Florence Welch
Adele

All very different styles but there is no denying they can sing, in my opinion.

I would place Barbra Streisand way above the likes of Leona, Beyonce and Mariah. She can floor them vocally and Etta James should certainly be on the list.

Best three voices: Celine Dion, Eva Cassidy and Amy Winehouse

My personal top three: Natalie Imbruglia, Sara Bareilles and Kelly Clarkson

and OP - please don't mess with my list 'cos I know it's right - everyone else feel free!

Based solely on voice

Whitney
Celine
Mariah

If its based on all round, voice, music, style, personality etc Kylie wins hands down for me, yes there are better vocalists but Kylie doesnt get the credit she deserves vocally.

Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston and Celine Dion if we're going by actual singing ability.
They are the Vocal Trinity.
