That's a hard thing for me to narrow down. I really love classical music./composers..currently my favorite singer is Josh Groban. His voice is so beautiful and clear I don't even care that half of his album is in Italian.

My favorites are Alison Krauss, Michael Buble', Harry Connick Jr., and Willy Braun (the lead singer of Reckless Kelly). Oh, and I like the Indigo Girls.
Too hard to pick just one...

I listen to a lot of Christian music. My favorite singer, hands-down, is Chris Rice. I just love the tone of his voice. It's quite distinctive. Plus, he writes almost all of his songs, and they have the most incredible messages!

I listen to country music mostly.

But my favorite singer is, and has been since the mid 70s, Elton John.

Guess my age is showing!

ooh. hard to choose just one. I like Sinatra. I like Tony Bennett. I like Christina Aguilera (for pure vocal talent alone. most of her upbeat songs I don't care for). I like - no, I LOOOOVE - the Indigo Girls.
in the last few years, the only ones whose voices and styles really stand out to me are Josh Groban, Joss Stone, and Amy Winehouse.

My all time favourites include Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles and Aretha Franklin. Currently I really like John Mayer, James Morrison, Joss Stone and Pink, amongst others. My absolute favourite group at the moment is probably Jamiroquai whom I saw live a couple of years ago. I saw the Doobie Brothers two years ago on NYE, and they were also fantastic. There are too many others to list.

My all time favorite would have to be Gloria Estefan. I love her music - it comes from the heart. I have seen her in concert a number of times and she just blows me away. Supposedly she will no longer tour, but I am hoping that she will change her mind.

I also love Santana ( I met my husband in the late 60's when we were in JHS to "Black Magic Woman"), The Cream, Moody Blues and most music from the late 60's and early 70's.

Neil Diamond, Louis Armstrong, Paul Simon, America, Extreme, Harry Connick, Jr., BTO, some Boston, DIO, Garth Brooks to name a few..

There is more, this is some of what is on itunes right now. A lot of the music I love was because of my older brothers and mom and then one of first boyfriends.

Has to be Emily Saliers from the Indigo Girls. I think the reason I like her is that we have the same range. Her voice is just so clear and open. My older dd and I sing with the IG's CD's all the time and we fight over who sings up with Emily and who sings alto with Amy. We both love the upper harmonies.

I grew up listening to and still enjoy country music, but I also LOVE Christian music.

On the country side, right now I would say Josh Turner (can anyone say cute and what a DEEP voice), Brad Paisley (funny songs that hit close to home for many - Online) Trace Adkins (pretty stuck on himself but also funny), Rodney Atkins (Cleaning my Gun) and LeeAnn Rhimes (Nothing Better to Do).

On the Christian side - The Fray, Hawk Nelson, Reliant K, TFK, David Delgado (local artist), Aaron Shust, Family Force 5, Selah, Toby Mac and many more (can you tell I listen to my 13 year old's music?)

I also like the Eagles and have since high school. Great to see them coming back strong!
