Thread Name: Top 10 Singers Who CAN Sing
Subject: RE: Top 10 Singers Who CAN Sing
There are singers who can really sing and there are those who have a distinctive way of singing.
Singers who really have or have had good singing voices in their day:-
Caruso (think that's how you spell it)
Elvis (although I am not a fan)
P J Proby
Amy Whinehouse (when she was producing good songs)
Abba girls (Classic trained)
Nat King Cole
Sammy Davis Junior
All of the three Tenors
Distinctively good (quirky) Voiced Singers:-
Rod Stewart (with Faces)
Cliff Richard (for the wrong reasons)
Cilla Black (in her hey day)
Diana Ross (had no singing training)
George Harrison (each of the Beatles because they all were distinctive in their own way.
Fred Astaire (not brilliant singer but style)
Whatever opinions are on this it is so sad that a lot of the talent is no longer with us.
