I`m sure Kate Bush would fit in there somewhere 

And also Avril Lavigne for more testosterone driven favourites

Not perhaps the strongest of voices like the ones I picked above, but a mention for Italy's Elisa - she performs this so well and it's a fantastic song.

Not that fond of Celine Dion generally, but she’s done a couple of excellent versions of existing songs as well as her own stuff and is good at the emotional stuff - check out the key change in this at about 3 min, not many could do better.

Ottilie Patterson. Shame she had to retire early due to ill health.

Eddie Reader. A voice that can soar to the heavens.

Cilla Black. The finest female vocalist that England ever produced.

Good call on Cilla, that annoying dating show had caused me to forget what she was really good at. Her speaking voice was also annoying, which seems odd when you see how well she could sing with the same voice box.

She was an utter cunt, though.

Dolly Parton - amazing songwriter and performer.

Kate Bush - superb.

Poly Styrene - utterly unique and brilliant.  And as has been said the least likely front person of any group, male or female, ever.  Small, quiet, shy, plain, and with braces on her teeth.

 

And in this extract from her wiki imagine doing this aged 15 in 1972; no mobile phones then.

Now imagine doing it as a small mixed race teenage girl.

 

As a teenager, Styrene was a hippie. When she was 15 she ran away from home with £3 in her pocket, and hitchhiked from one music festival to another, staying at hippie crash pads. Thinking of this as a challenge to survive, her adventure ended when she stepped on a rusty nail while bathing in a stream and had to be treated for septicaemia.[5]

Wasn't this the play-out music from that wretched and long-forgotten series "Lost"..

Big fan of Chrissie Hynde of The Pretenders. Great, distinctive voice, great attitude and some absolute belters. The "Fuck Off" in Precious is exquisite!

Kate Bush - just Wow!

I rather like Sophie Ellis-Bextor from the contemporary set.

[YouTube seem to have stopped embedding videos!]

I noticed this in the comments which seems to give the backstory hinted at here and there.

Quote

Dear Tarja, It's time to choose whether the story of Nightwish ends here or whether it will still continue an undetermined period of time. We've been working with this creation for 9 years and we are not ready to give up yet. Nightwish is a way of life, something to live for, and we're certain we can't let it go. Equally certain is the fact that we cannot go on with you and Marcelo any longer. During the last year something sad happened, which I've been going over in my head every single day, morning and night. Your attitude and behavior don't go with Nightwish anymore. There are characteristics I would never have believed to see in my old dear friend. People who don't talk with each other for a year do not belong in the same band.  We are involved in an industry where the business-side of things is a necessary evil and something to worry about all the time. We are also a band which has always done music from the heart, because of friendship and the music itself. The mental satisfaction should always be more important than money! Nightwish is a band, it's an emotion. To you, unfortunately, business, money, and things that have nothing to do with those emotions have become much more important. You feel that you have sacrificed yourself and your musical career for Nightwish, rather than thinking what it has given to you. This attitude was clearly shown to me in the two things you said to me in an airplane in Toronto: "I don't need Nightwish anymore." and "Remember, Tuomas, that I could leave this band at any time, giving you only one day's warning in advance". I can't simply write any more songs for you to sing. You have said yourself that you are merely a "guest musician" in Nightwish.

Now that visit ends and we will continue Nightwish with a new female vocalist. We're sure this is an equally big relief to you as it is for us. We have all been feeling bad long enough. You told us that no matter what, the next Nightwish album will be your last one. However, the rest of us want to continue as long as the fire burns. So there's no sense in doing that next album with you, either. The four of us have been going over this situation countless times and we have realized that this is the thing we want to do in life. It¬īs all we can do. In December 2004, in Germany, you said that you will never tour again for more than two weeks at a time.

You also said that we can forget about U.S. and Australia because the fees and the sizes of venues are too small. In interviews I've mentioned that if Tarja leaves, that would be the end of the band. I understand that people will think this way. Nightwish is, however, a scenery of my soul and I'm not ready to let go because of one person. A person who wants to focus her creativity to somewhere else, a person whose values don't match mine. We were never bothered by the fact that you didn't participate in writing/arranging songs, you never in 9 years came to rehearse the songs with us before going to the studio. Not the fact that while on tour you always wanted to fly, separately from us with your husband. Not the fact that you are an undisputable front image of the band. We accepted and felt ok about everything except greed, underestimating the fans, and breaking promises.

It was agreed by the five of us that Nightwish would be the priority in everything that we do during 2004-2005. Still so many things were more important to you. The ultimate example being the already sold-out show in Oslo, which you wanted to cancel because you needed to rehearse for your solo concerts, meet friends and go to the movies. Those were the words Marcelo used in an e-mail explaining the cancellation. This being just one example of so many. I couldn't think of a worse way of being selfish and dismissing our fans. Nightwish is a way of life and a job with many obligations. To each other and to the fans. With you we can't take care of those duties anymore. Deep within we don't know which one of you drove us to this point.

Marcelo has changed you from the lovely girl you were into a diva, who doesn't think or act the way she used to. You are too sure of your irreplaceableness and status. It's obvious that you blame your stress and misery on us four. And you think we don't respect or listen to you. Believe us; We have always had the uppermost respect towards you as a wonderful vocalist and as a friend. And very often during the past couple of years the plans were made according to your decisions only. You were always the only one who wanted more money from the shows. This "compensation and more money from everything" -attitude is the fact that we are most disappointed of! We wish that from now on you will listen to your heart instead of Marcelo. Cultural differences combined with greed, opportunism and love is a dangerous combination. Do not wither yourself. This decision is not something we are especially proud of but you gave us no choice. The gap between us is too wide. And the decision is made by us four unanimously. We are beyond the point where things could be settled by talking.

All the best for your life and career, Tuomas

Emppu Jukka Marco
