"Hey I just found your blog online and I enjoy what you have to say. I was just wondering, since i have been having this debate, who you think has a better voice between Beyonce vs Christina Aguilera?
I personal feel that 1 girl's voice is 10x better but doesn't sing as well while the other female singers with the best tech. But there is very little to her voice. I don't want you to be biased so I've used no names. lol.
Can you help me by giving you 2 cents?"
Wow, that's definitely a difficult question as I like both the singers. But if I'm going on the voice alone, I'd have to go for Christina Aguilera as the better singer. For me, Beyonce's voice is average in terms of its overall tone, power, and range. However, she has worked hard at her instrument and as such has learnt to lift her voice from mediocrity with 3 notable things:
- A gorgeous vibrato: Possibly the best in the industry
- Outstanding control: Also possibly one of the best in the game. Not only can she hit notes effortlessly, and with pinpoint accuracy, but she can do it while dancing.
- Intelligent delivery: Beyonce can sing anything. She goes from hip hop, to RnB to pop to adult contemporary very convincingly and that's because of her understanding of music.
Sometimes it can be overbearing and, of late, I've been giving it a bashing on the blog because its being pushed too far, but those things still don't change the fact that when its at its best there is no question Christina Aguilera could out sing Beyonce.
Thanks for the question
