There have been some great singers over the years…almost too many to list. But a few, I think, rise to the level of the sublime. Their voices are so pure and rich as to almost defy belief that something so beautiful could come out of a human being. They are the best of the best, a category unto themselves. They will be singing in the Angel Choirs if there is such a thing.
And I don’t mean “superstar.” Elton John is a superstar, and his voice is okay. But it’s not great. Aretha Franklin is a great performer, but I don’t find her voice to be like the gift of the gods as I do, say, Nat King Cole.
So do take part in our poll which you’ll find at the lower right of the page. Or write-in your choice here. And by all means, argue the point. Nothing is better than arguing about who is the best of the best.
