“You’re a singer – who’s your favourite then?”… has to be one of the most common questions I get asked at gigs. The hard thing is, I very rarely have an answer ready – it’s an impossible question! It depends on the genre, on whether we’re rating singing ability as opposed to performance, and bunch of other things.

Here, in no particular order, is a list of my favourite 20 vocalists of all time.
A month ago I joined a Facebook campaign to choose a different song every day, to represent different emotions and different points in my life. I’ve been happily tweeting away my choices over the last month, but here they all are, in one place!
