Freddie Mercury. Because anything else is wrong, just dead wrong. Want proof? Here's your proof:

Somebody To Love - Live

Bohemian Rhapsody - Live

Ted Neeley as Jesus in Jesus Christ Superstar.

Behold the power and the glory.

Carl Anderson as Judas gets special mention for "Heaven On Their Minds".

Grace Slick is my favorite female vocalist. "White Rabbit" is fantastic, as are most of her other songs.

For men, Sam Cooke. I honestly don't think we will ever see his equal. Spending adequate time truly listening to the man's vocal phrasings has the consequence of making other singers seem like they're just reciting verse.

Females; Aretha Franklin, Billie Holiday, Etta James. Aretha's voice will actually grab a hold of any other woman's voice and beat the shit out of it.

For skill I'd have to say Vitas.

Freddie Mercury because he was a brilliant peformer, a genius and his voice was powerful and one of a kind! No one else could sing his songs as brilliantly as he did!

James Durbin, from American Idol. I know it sounds juvenile, but his range was phenomenal. When he sang a duet with Scotty, he didn't over sing him to make himself sound better. That was a real manly thing to do.

I loved the way he took old songs and made them new, and made them his own.

I plan to buy all his music and try to see him in concert. To heck with the last one standing.

Ivan Rebroff, Bryan Ferry, Roland Gift, KD Lang, and Chris Isaak are some singers I admire.

We all enter this world in the same way: naked; screaming; soaked in blood. But if you live your life right, that kind of thing doesn't have to stop there.

Bob Dylan. Just kidding! Still like his music though. Too many good singers to list, it's impossible to pick an of all time.

Paul Robeson.

For God so loved the world that he arranged for everyone to both have free will and to suffer the terrible consequences of making the wrong choice. Kind of a dick move, God.
