Personally, I'd have to say Billie Holiday. But from the list definitely Fiona Apple. She is incredible. She's got an original voice and she's one helluva piano player.

I have a sweet tooth for female-fronted metal bands so I can't pick just one.

Tarja Tarunen - Nightwish
Angela Gossow - Arch Enemy
Christina Scabbia - Lacuna Coil
Anneke from The Gathering
Karyn Crisis - Crisis
Hayley Windsor - Antimatter

Of those listed I voted for Fionna Apple, though mainly because her songs have had the most impact on me and not because I think she is the most talented. I would say that Norah Jones is my favorite female vocalist of all time. I was driving through the mountains when I first heard her song "Don't Know Why". I loved it and bought the album and loved that. This was a month or two before she became big and many months before she won her grammies. Thankfully I have not listened to much FM radio latley or I imagine I would be sick of hearing her songs.

I am all about female singers. I have so many that I listen to but Sarah McLachlan still moves me the most. I LOVE the sound of her voice and the pain and passion she exudes.

Also, I am amazed by Amy Lee's voice. (from Evanescence)
Listen to "My Immortal" and you'll agree.

the above list is entirely too limited... great choices... but when you say favorite "all time"... you're leaving out an entire generation of amazing female musicians who in reality, paved the way for the artists listed above...

Janis Joplin
Ann & Nancy Wilson (Heart)
Joan Jett
Chrissy Hynde
Pat Benatar
Wendy O. Williams
Deborah Harry

bjork, no question. not really my taste of music. i listen to psychopathic...twiztid, icp etc. and hip-hop.
as far as musically, she is a genius IMO. and i love her voice. its definitely one of a kind. i got tickets and im actually going to her concert at red rocks in august...my girlfriend loves bjorks music, its just about all she listens to. hopefully it will be a good time.

Johnette Napolitano of Concrete Blonde is by far my favorite vocalist, male or female. She can hold a note in an impossible pitch while playing some mean bass guitar. Very rarely does music make my spine tingle, but she does it on more than a few songs. Live versions of "The Sky Is A Poisonous Garden" and Haunted Head", "Heal It Up" and Jesus Please Forgive Me (For The Things I'm About To Say" all make my spine tingle.

From the survey, Tori Amos has a very pretty voice, PJ Harvey is good, and Bjork is of course awesome.

So long as we're talking old Mariah Carey, I completely agree. Mariah Carey at present, however, is but a shadow of her former self.

Out of those listed, I voted for Fiona Apple and Tori Amos (that's what you get for putting checkboxes instead of radio buttons )

Fiona because, vocally, she's a better singer, and Tori because, overall, she's a better, more impacting musician. (Not to take away from Fiona AT ALL though, because she's an excellent and powerful musician as well.)


Can't say I'm not surprised Bjork is doing so well though...I can't stand her.
