    Talking Showdown Stage for Voices: Powerhouse Divas(English)

    I have compiled a list of famous english-singing divas who are often classified as a league of the Powerhouse Divas who have awesome voices which sounded almost just as good on live performances.Their popularity and successful career as a singer also marks a star on their powerhouse league.

    ***I will update the list of introductions to the divas as time goes along Please do contribute if you can...

    A comparison of all the great voices: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W4hDG7U9suI

    Points to Ponder:

    - Which of these singers do you think have the MOST awesome voice?(Only One=> please vote)
    - What do you like/dislike about the individual voices of the singers on the list?
    - Please rate the singing capability of the individual singers on the list based on the below criterion(Each criteria is upon 10.Intervals of 0.5 is acceptable but not below):

    arggh, this is hard. If I were to vote for the MOST powerful voice, it would be Aretha hands down. However, she isn't my fav on the list.

    I think LeAnn is the weakest in the bunch

    So who's your favourite from the list? if you gonna rank the most awesome voice in your view from 1-10,how are you gg to rank them? ok...it's kinda hard but there must be a decision

    The vote asked for the most awesome voice(The Voice) in your thinking Awesome as not only the power,but the expressiveness and other factors etc as long as your reasons of choosing that singer all circulates around the main theme which is the voice quality Nothing about looks please,and that will be fine

    It's kinda hard to choose but if I was given a chance to possess one of the singer's singing voice from the list,I'll choose Celine Dion or Lara Fabian ... ...hmm...let's be precise...I'll choose Celine because I find her voice not only high but has this ability to overwhelm one's senses...very emotional.And her high pitch I realise goes all sharp but powerful when she raise it;rather than thick and strong I guess I like that.Especially when it looks like quite effortless and a piece of cake on her part

    It is a hard because I think all on the lists are good singers. If I were to eliminate, I would say Whitney,Lara and Celine are my fav because they are the most versatile.

    Mariah, she has range, but power in her voice, I think she might be weaker in that list. Leanne I find is the weakest on the list in terms of voice. CHristina has a awesome voice but she grunts and does too many runs for my taste.
    Aretha has the most power but I think she started the whole "big soul lady" stereotype.

    let's be real here. I can never ever compare to anyone one of the singers up there with my karaoke voice. Frankly, I wasn't born with a really powerful vocals or blessed with a whistle register.

    Out of those choices I'd have to go with Celine Dion. Doesn't matter if its upper, middle, or lower register she always sounds great and maintains great tonal quality all the time.

    LeAnn Rimes shouldn't even be in this poll. She's not even the best voice in the country music genre (Martina McBride), although I suppose she's better known overseas since she had forays into pop music. Kelly Clarkson also shouldn't be on this poll. Her career is far too short and insignificant compared to the others, and she's not even the best voice out of Idol (Carrie Underwood).

    Considering tone colour, range, pronunciation and singing skill, Whitney comes up tops. Second would be Celine Dion.

    However, this does not mean that you must have a powerhouse voice to be a great singer. It's also a combination of the emotional experience in the voice, what the singer stands for and the songs that he/she sings.

    Case in question: Tracy Chapman, Annie Lennox, Sarah McLachlan, Norah Jones, Eva Cassidy.

    lol, true ok to be realistic here; its a tough choice between Celine Dion and Whitney Houston, listening to them in the past. They can really hit the high notes with a strong voice by emphasizing the lyrics with emotions turning into a living thing

    Shanice shouldn't be on the list. She had one big hit 'I love your smile' and a couple of crappy albums.
