Readers immediately noticed Celine Dion’s glaring absence from Rolling Stone’s new list of the 200 greatest vocalists of all time. Oh yes, she was completely off the list. Not even in the bottom 200. Fans were outraged and took to social media to discuss the disappointment.
Celine Dion has sold 200 million record sales worldwide. Celine Dion has sold 200 million record sales worldwide. Noted for her powerful and technically skilled vocals, Dion is the best-selling Canadian recording artist, and the best-selling French-language artist of all time.
Editors of Rolling Stone stated in the article that was published on Sunday, “These are the vocalists who have altered history and defined our lives – from smooth operators to raw shouters, from gospel to punk, from Sinatra to Selena to SZA.”
If anything, CÃ©line Dion should have been at least the top five, along with. Barbra Streisand, who didn’t even make the top ten. Times have changed and we have to assume that the Rolling Stone magazine uses a different hearing algorithm in making their decisions. Taylor Swift made the top five, but is this to say that the quality of her voice is better than Celine Dion’s? But come on now. Do you really think Taylor Swift’s voice is better than Celine Dion’s or Barbra Streisand’s?

Rolling Stones Magazine journalists said they “used a complex voting process that included input from well-known musicians” to compile Rolling Stone’s list of the 100 Greatest Singers in 2008, which favored classic rock and performers from the 1960s and 1970s. The audience was told, “keep in mind that this is the Greatest Singers list, not the Greatest Voices List.” “These are the vocalists that have shaped history and defined our lives – from smooth operators to raw shouters, from gospel to punk, from Sinatra to Selena to SZA,”
In addition, the magazine said, “originality, influence, the depth of an artist’s catalog, and the breadth of their musical legacy.” We are not sure why Celine Dion did not even make the list with her beautiful songs and a voice that send chills up our spine.
The Rolling Stones article went on to say that, “These are the vocalists that have shaped history and defined our lives – from smooth operators to raw shouters, from gospel to punk, from Sinatra to Selena to SZA,”
