My favorite male singer is Frank Sinatra, no guy can beat him.. He's just amazing! I also like Nat King Cole and Perry Como.

I don't really have any other favorite female singers besides Doris.. I like Carrie Underwood, but that's really about it..

Male: Sinatra (a bit overrated, but still great), Nat King Cole.

Female: Streisand, Ella, Edith Piaf. As far as current theatrical singers right now, I love Betty Buckley. Her "Concert at Carnegie Hall" cd is amazing. She does the absolute definitive versions of "Rose's Turn" from Gypsy AND "Pirate Jenny" from The Threepenny Opera. No one else right now has that range.

Doris Day all the Way! I also like Karen Carpenter, Linda Eder - and dare I say - some of the less dramatic Barbra Streisand songs.

I think Michael Buble is wonderful. I also like Neil Diamond and, of course, Frank Sinatra. I also like 1970's Elvis Presley.

Without a doubt, Doris is my favorite female singer. I'd rather listen to her than anyone else. I do also like Karen Carpenter and Anne Murray, but they're a faraway second and third from Doris.

I tend not to listen to as many male singers. If I had to choose, first would be Harry Connick, and then maybe Robert Goulet at his prime.

Amongst the ladies:

Doris -- Simply one of the most natural singers I've ever heard. Nothing is ever forced. Doris has a supreme gift when it comes to timing, rhythm and her ability to tell a story in song. She makes it all seem so effortless that many people fail to notice just how great she is. That probably explains why she was criminally underrated as a vocalist for so many years. I dare anyone not to listen to "Day By Day" or "Day By Night" (to mention just two) and not be completely captivated. Those recordings are for the ages.

La Streisand -- I am a Streisand junkie. She is am amazingly powerful singer with a tone that is pure perfection at times, and yet, she has also made some of the worst albums ever. Still, next to Garland, there is no other pop diva who evokes such strong emotion in people. You either love her or you hate her. I love her and respect her sense of truth in her performances and her willingness to experiment with different types of music. I just wish her recordings from the 90's on weren't so heavy with strings and over-production.

Others that I admire: Judy (the most emotional singer ever); kd lang; Jane Monheit; Betty Buckley (a terrific belter); Rosemary Clooney; Ella Fitzgerald; Roberta Flack; and Dusty Springfield. I'm also a closet Beyonce fan. I think she has a great set of pipes and has the potential to get even better as she matures.

Amongst the Guys

Sinatra: A master storyteller in song. I can't think of another singer (aside from Judy) whose personal life fueled his performances as much as Sinatra. Just watch "A Man and his Music and you will understand what I mean. He wore his heart on his sleeve and over time it became pretty worn from all the bigger-than-life living he seemed to crave. But the payoff is in those stellar performances. A true master.

Nat King Cole: one of the smoothest, creamiest pop voices ever. Another superb singer, who, like Doris was a complete natural. You never heard him "singing." It all just flowed out of him.

Others that I enjoy: Ray Charles; Josh Groban; Michael Buble (OK, he can be on the cheesy side and he ain't no Sinatra by any stretch, but I like the fact that he has somehow made standards and big band sounds "cool" for the younger generation); Peter Cincotti; and the late Luther Vandross.

Another voice that I like [because it is so distintive] - although I haven't heard a lot of her stuff, is Helen Reddy.

Yes, I agree Michael Buble is good. I also agree you cannot take away the talent of Streisand or the likes of Judy and maybe even Celine Dion - however, I just never really took to their voices - with the odd exception of a recording here and there! I adore Garland's 'The Man that Got Away' for example.

Also, in 'some things' I really like Shirley Bassey, Dusty Springfield and Dion Warick.
