Your 5 Favorite Voices

This is what always interests me, a unique and beautiful voice. I don't want to know who you all consider the BEST vocalists, or BEST frontmen, or FAVORITE poeple who happen to be singer. Just what are you 5 favortie voices in music, solely based on the characteristics of the singer's voice.

Such as:

1. Bjork
2. Patti Smith
3. Emmylou Harris
4. Nick Cave
5. David Byrne

All amazing and unique voices. Looove it.
