I guess this could be a poll suggestion, but I can't cross post out of Plus. That's dumb.
Anyway, my own criteria are that they don't need any stupid autotune. They don't have to be beautiful, but my selections are. Their voices are unique. And I could listen to them all night.
In no particular order:
| Pictors Studio ||18 Apr 2016 11:05 p.m. PST|
| Doms Decals ||19 Apr 2016 2:53 a.m. PST|
Nina Simone tops my all-time list, and probably Nerina Pallot from the current generation as it were. There are probably dozens that could fit the criteria for me – those two top the list though.
|OldGrenadier at work||19 Apr 2016 4:30 a.m. PST|
Stevie Nicks. Carly Simon. Beverly Sills.
|Karellian Knight||19 Apr 2016 4:37 a.m. PST|
Melissa Etheridge, Trisha Yearwood.
|Coelacanth||19 Apr 2016 4:39 a.m. PST|
Annie Lennox (Eurythmics)
Harriet Wheeler (The Sundays)
Deborah Harry (Blondie)
Imogen Heap (Frou Frou)
Annette Strean (Venus Hum)
Maria McKee (Lone Justice)
Chrissie Hynde (The Pretenders)
I could go on; I really like women vocalists. Most are in no particular order, except the top three. Annie Lennox is one of the great voices of her generation; Kate Bush has a gift for innovation and a unique sound; something about Harriet Wheeler's voice breaks my heart just a bit.

I am very fond of emotive female vocalists. I fall in love easily. If there are any of these gals you haven't heard of, look them up.
|Tommy20||19 Apr 2016 6:02 a.m. PST|
No problem narrowing this one down. Without a doubt it's Chrissie Hynde.

No objections to the previous entries, but nobody mentioned any of the "Lilith Faire" crowd, or the early 90's alternative rockers? Coelacanth covered some of the "must haves", but allow me to append:
Sarah McLachlan (maybe her later stuff got boring, but what a voice. She's certainly worthy of inclusion in the list)
Dolores O'Riordan (of The Cranberries)
