Is it "beautiful female" vocals? or beautiful "female vocals" :P

Sarah Mclachlan, Epica, Nightwish, Within Temptation, Enya, Diana Krall, Tina Dico, and anything by Portishead and Garbage just to name a few that come to my mind. Well the last two wont exactly qualify as beautiful I guess, but they ooze personality and style, and are quite talented IMO.

Sharon den Adel (Within Temptation), Priscilla Ahn, Erin McCarley, Marie Digby, Younha.

Sade fits both, and looking forward to her new album to be released this February.

A quick title search for female will yield many, many threads like this.

I personally find Bjork's voice more beautiful than any other, but many do not. She has a love/hate thing going on. There is something just so comforting and refreshing about her voice to me.

Anneke van Giersbergen (ex-The Gathering). Mandatory. Her best performances can be found on these The Gathering albums:

Nighttime Birds
How To Measure A Planet?
