    Indeed, I think Ms. Callas is the best voice of the modern era. Plenty of great names thrown out in this thread, but Callas is the best. Not even the the outmoded recording equipment of her day can hide it.
    The vocal range that Callas had in her possession was nothing short of miraculous. The woman sounded like a baritone in her low register, but in the next bar, she would hit high E's and F's in full voice. It's simply unbelievable.

    I am currently obsessed with Cat Power (Chan Marshall). But it's probably already been posted.

    Rosie Thomas .... she sang backup for Sufjan Stephens for a bit.
    And I will admit to liking A Fine Frenzy for the past 3 or 4 months.

    Its shame that she only did a snippet of "How can I tell you" for that commercial.
