Here's the thing, I love music. Literally, I can't imagine how life would be without it. So, there go my top 3 favourite singers.

What I love about the artists I picked for my list is their unique voices, their talent and of course their personalities as people.

1.Michael Jackson

No words can really describe MJ, the King of Pop. From singing to dancing, he was and still is the best in my opinion. He was a master vocalist, with a four octave range and a versatile voice. He created his own distinctive vocal style, filled with grunts and exclamations. These quirky stylistic features resulted in any Jackson song becoming recognizable almost immediately. Few artists in his field have such distinctive and flexible vocal capabilities. Jackson is also, in my opinion, one of the greatest songwriters of his time.At the pinnacle of his career he reached heights no other artist (then and now) would ever be able to reach.

2. Freddie Mercury

As the lead singer of Queen, Mercury epitomized many of the traits of the one of the most popular bands of the '70s--and one of the most critically scorned of the '80s. He was bold, ambitious, calculating, arrogant but also greatly talented. Mercury’s vocal cords just moved faster than other people’s. While a typical vibrato will fluctuate between 5.4 Hz and 6.9 Hz, Mercury’s was 7.04 Hz. To look at that in a more scientific way, a perfect sine wave for vibrato assumes the value of 1, which is pretty close to where famous opera singer Luciano Pavarotti sat. Mercury, on the other hand, averaged a value of 0.57, meaning he was vibrating something in his throat even Pavarotti couldn’t move.Freddie Mercury had a voice unlike anyone else in rock ‘n’ roll, and that led to one of the most unique singers and stage performers of all time.

3. James Hetfield

Yes. James would of course be in this list, being the singer of my favourite metal band ever, Metallica. Very screamy voice, deep, powerful and dark. Can't really say anything else about James, his voice is just so magnetic.

Thanks for reading. xx
