I love Meiko more than I probably should.
the original mostly acoustic version of her first album is gorgeous, fell in love when I first heard it in early 2008.
Mary Black it is for me. Maybe because my dad always plays it via his own home theater system ever since I was young.
To be more with recent times, Florence Welch of Florence + The Machine has a wonderful voice. Her band has 2 albums currently. Wearing HD280pros
Laura Pausini - both in Spanish and Italian (Latin Pop) **Personal Favorite**
Tarja Turunnen *from Nightwish*- awesome (Hard Rock/Metal)
Emilie Claire Barlow - Jazz (I'm listening to her albums a lot lately)
Sabine Edelsbacher *from Edenbridge* - nice, not as good as Tarja (Hard Rock/Metal)
One of my top favorites for female vocals. All of her recordings sound so amazing and full.
Alisol Sudol is also one of my favorites. I couldn't find a good resolution version of this song, but her albums usually include lots of details and hidden things going on
