The Biggest Voices of All Time

I just watched this on Magic, but although it was the 99 best, some of the song choices for the artists and the order of the artists was all wrong. I’m sorry, but there is no way that Leona Lewis ‘Bleeding Love’ should beat out Bryan Adams ‘Anything I Do, I Do It For You’. Never. Especially not by at least 5 spots.

No disservice to Magic, but they had multiple songs by some artists and left out all of the classic big names of music. These songs also happen to be some of my favourite of all time.

So here’s my Biggest Voices (in alphabetical order):
