Meatloaf.
I know, I have strange tastes in music, but if you listen to some of his songs (get past "Paradise by the Dashboard Light") and the passion he has with his music, you might agree.

Other favorites (other than my hard rock obsession): Billy Joel, Jim Croce, Garth Brooks, Toby Keith...

Everyone knows that Celine Dion is "the best singer in the world!!!" (anyone see that Saturday Night Live skit? Hilarious!) Seriously though, I like Celine, but in small doses.

My nominees are listed in no particular order, but separated by genre:

Andrea Bocelli
Luciano Pavarotti
Josh Groban


Jeffrey Osbourne
Luther Vandross

Ronnie James Dio
Jeff Scott Soto
Robert Plant
Bruce Dickinson
Joe Lynn Turner


Frank Sinatra

Christina Aguilera

I have many more, but those are a few that come immediately to mind. You meant real singing right? ;)

Oooh, another one on my iPod. I love Paradise by the Dashboard Lights. Didn't used to, until hubby had me really listen to it. A couple others of his I keep on my iPod are Anything for Love and Two Out of Three Ain't Bad.

Martina McBride!

I second Martina McBribe, she's awesome! I also think Celine Dion has a jaw droppingly beautiful voice. Though I'm not really a huge fan of hers I've been moved to tears by the power in her voice before, it's really something to admire.

Also, LOVE Bob Seger and Jon Bon Jovi (ok, well he's just sooooo sexy I'm not even really sure I can think of what his voice sounds like, I'm usually too busy drooling).
