Who do you think are the most technically gifted singers of all time?

For me the best female would be Whitney Houston.

The best male is a lot more difficult to decide. Pavarotti perhaps?

I think it's fair to distinguish between make and female vocalists due to the technical differences in sound and technique. A man is never going to sing anything like Whitney Houston and a woman could likely never sound like a true baritone.

i think it'd be fair to differentiate it further since some great singers probably wouldnt sound as good if they sang a diff genre..... imo anyway.

Among rock frontmen, Freddie Mercury no doubt.

Montserrat Caballé is up there along with many other legends because she could sing side by side with Freddie Mercury and not get overshadowed by Mercury's epicness.

I've always thought of Freddie Mercury as the greatest singer of all time.

How could we forget about Agnetha Fältskog and Anni-Frid Lyngstad?

I always liked Whitney Houston and Mariah personally. Freddy Mercury is also up there. Axl Rose is also one a few people may not have thought of. Out of the famous musicians, he has the widest vocal range. Yes wider than Mariah, but it doesn't make him a better singer than Mariah in my opinion as I like her voice better.

Also I have never heard anyone sing the US National Anthem like Whitney Houston. She is just an amazing singer. Too bad she had such a tragic ending to her life. Marrying freaking Bobby Brown? Wow. Can't believe she and her daughter are dead.

'Technically gifted' like singers that could hit different notes high and low, have a beautiful voice? I think Susan Boyle has a wonder voice. I like your pick for Whitney Houston, too much she got involved with Bobby Brown and drugs.
