Most beautiful female voice? - Page 2

post #16 of 182
Wow, how should I start?
  • Lorenna McKennitt and Teressa Salgueiro (Madredeus) -- crystaline, proudly soaring.
  • Karan Casey -- sweetly waiflike, with a tough edge.
  • Virginia Astley -- innocence incarnate.
  • June Tabor and Lila Downs -- The most expressive, versatile voices there is: playful at one moment, caustic and venomous at the next.
  • Paula Morelenbaum -- smooth and weightless, the perfect voice for Bossa Nova.

Did someone actually say Madonna?

Most of mine have been listed except for the truly amazing Neko Case. Her voice is fantastic, especially if you like a bit of country. Gillian Welch is antoher one in the same vein that is amazing.
