Norah Jones. She's wonderful on her CD, and even better live.

Ella Fitzgerald is the best female singer.

Julie Andrews is pretty good too.
Carmen McRae, June Christy, Sade, Anita O'Dell, Grace Slick (good call), Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey...all good. Oh, and Chaka Khan too - man, could she sing! Karen Carpenter, Aretha Franklin, Diana Ross. Hmmmm, I like quite a few of them.

Amen, I love Patty Griffin! Beautiful voice, and an awesome songwriter to boot. Her new album 1,000 Kisses has hardly left my CD player since it was released.

Living With Ghosts is great too, but my fav is Flaming Red, which seemed to get its ass kicked by critics. Oh well, what do they know?

I agree with the nomination of Allison Krauss, but am surprised at the omission of the late, great Eva Cassidy, who's Songbird was Number 1 in the UK last year for a time, some 5 years after she died.

I also think Sade and Lauryn Hill has very nice voices. Lauryn Hill's MTV Unplugged album is fantastic. I'm definitely going to have to pick it up sometime.

I'm gonna have to go with:

Andrea Corr
Shakira

The Corrs are just good in general, and Shakira has a heck of a singing voice for someone who only learned English a year ago.

I agree with this post completely. Bjork is simply a goddess. Melora's voice is amazing, and I just love Rasputina. She does the backup vocals on some of the songs on the latest Candy Butchers album and it really makes the songs come alive.

I saw Martha Wainwright do backups for Rufus and she's got a great voice.

Other female artists I enjoy:

Ella Fitzgerald, Lauryn Hill, Fiona Apple, Kim Deal, Tori Amos, Lisa Loeb, Juliana Hatfield, Alicia Keys, Shirley Manson, Ani DiFranco

Kate Pierson is also a fantastic singer. As is Cindy Wilson. Together, they are incredible the way their voices wrap around each other.

And a third vote for Patty Griffin, although "1,000 Kisses" is my least favorite of her albums (fave is "Living with Ghosts").

Also love the following...

Hope Sandoval (of Mazzy Star)

Tonya Donnelly (of Belly)

Margo Timmins (of Cowboy Junkies)

Natalie Merchant (of 10,000 Maniacs but definitely not the dipped-in-grease-nasal-crowing of her solo career)

Heather Nova

Sinead O'Connor

For a minute, I thought I was going to be the first to mention Johnette Napolitano from Concrete Blonde. Glad to see someone beat me to it.

For anyone who wants to know why she's my only choice for this poll: See her perform live. Then you'll get it.

Kudos to the person who posted Billie Holliday. What an incredible lady! Same with Hope Sandoval, never can I get tired of hearing a Mazzy Star song.
