The 15 most beautiful songs, sung by women and Connie Talbot (Read over 11,000 times!)

Beautiful Female Voices

Here they are.

No Connie Talbot is not a woman yet! She just turned 10 in fact!

There are some songs that I hated to leave out, but you can mention them at the bottom. I am not ranking them as the best singers or as the best songs, but rather looking at musical beauty, and angelic voices.Feel free to comment below!

I hated to leave off " The Closer I get to you" and Leather and Lace". But that's how lists go!

15. The Cranberries- Linger

Delores and the back up singers sang their way through the heavens on this modern day classic! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G6Kspj3OO0s

14. Pat Benatar-We Belong Together

Though Pat needed no help, the children's choir was a nice touch. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qxZInIyOBXk

13.Bette Midler -The Rose

The lyrics got this one onto the list. Bette knew how to hit the notes on this though. From a distance almost made this list as well.

12. Celine Dion-My Heart Will Go On

The Celine fans will be angry that it wasn't higher. I am not a Dion fan so just be happy that she is here and ahead of Pat Benatar! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gGMuF90bpls&feature=fvst Remember, this list is not about how long a song stayed at number 1.

11. Twiggy-Rings

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xl5npZI1efQ&list=PL68993D44E1F175DB&index=2&playnext=2 I bet no one thought Twiggy would make this list. I think you will agree when you listen to this!

International Star and 4th grader- Connie

The Angel-Juice Newton

Sarah Brightman

10. The Carpenters-Hurting Each Other

There was only one Karen Carpenter! Though she was not well physically, her voice brought you to a different place, emotionally. She sang like no other! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NVKAPL9idD8

9. Connie Talbot-Ave Marie

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-52ZBHL4K1o&feature=BF&list=PL68993D44E1F175DB&index=7 The voice that this little girl has blows my mind. She never seems to think of herself as special in any of the interviews either, and yes, she is only a fourth grader!

8. Charlotte Church- O Holy Night

Charlotte can hit the high notes, and she put a new spin on this old classic! One of my favorite Carols. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cRqycwRFWuc

7. Abba -Fernando

When you think about matching the lyrics with the voices of Abba's two Sirens, how could this be left off the list? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQsjAbZDx-4

6. Roberta Flack- Killing me softly

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O1eOsMc2Fgg Just listen to how gentle and soft her voice is.Who was more captivating than Roberta? "The Closer I Get To You" would have been here had a man not sang part of it solo. She is still amazing live!

5. Juice Newton- Angel of the Morning-

There were many versions of this, but only one is unforgettable. Close to being a one hit wonder, the angelic Juice had so much power, passion, and beauty, that she personified femininity.

4. Nozze De Figaro-Flemming and Bartoli

Morgan Freeman said it best in Shaw Shank, when he said that their voices freed every man at Shaw Shank...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BLtqZewjwgA Renee Fleming is amazing

3. Witney Houston- I Will Always Love You

Any list like this that would leave off Whitney would automatically discredit itself. Listen to how beautiful her voice was! This is the remembered version. This was almost tied for first place. No disrespect to Dolly Parton, but Whitney stopped the whole world with her version of this smash hit! It was also hard to leave out her version of The National Anthem, and Do You Hear What I Hear. She did justice to covers like no one else! Whitney will never be forgotten.

2. Enya- Only Time

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v0NoHN1TU5I&list=PL68993D44E1F175DB&index=4&playnext=1 I remember Nine Eleven every time I hear this! It brought our country such comfort.

1. Sarah Brightman-Time To Say Goodbye

Only one could make it to this spot. Sarah Brightman should not surprise anyone. It was hard to decide the order of the top few, but Sarah just does so much with her voice and I do not think she will ever be appreciated as much as she should be.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vl6h7UWo1_Q&feature=related

I hated to leave some songs off, but that is how it is when you do a list. The Sundays, and Denyce Graves almost made it. Lady Gaga did not! Sorry.

Now that you know what I think, let's have your opinion!

Great hub and the Carpenters were one of my favorites back i the day, Karen's voice was so beautiful sweet and innocent.

MikeSyrSutton, nice of you to put this hub together. You can add Jackie Evancho to the list -- she's 10 years old and appeared on America's Got Talent this year. She almost won -- glorious opera voice.

On your list, Whitney Houston is my fav and Celine Dion is out of sight! Great Job. I will bookmark this.

Thank you everyone! Though I like Jackie, I couldn't find one song where she topped anyone on this list. I would have to say that the jury is still out on her, and everyone else is an established singer and has been for years. Even Connie Talbot has been an international super star for over 3 years, and watched her 2nd album blow away Konyea West, Beyonce, and Madonna, all of whom had new albums out as well! I am still watching Jackie to see where she goes and how her voice develops.

Sarah Brightman's 'Con te reparto' (Time to say goodbye) is a great choice for no.1

Well, the comment above came directly from Holly Steel's website. LOL Who would have guessed that?

If you are representing an artist of any type and you are upset that I did not write about him or her, well you could ask me to!

Connie Talbot is magic. I know Jackie Evancho was mention. I agree with your reason. My opinion is that she is good, but doesn't have the IT or X Factor that Connie does. Connie brings a teary eye to all.
