14 Popular Singers With Amazingly Unique Voices

Singers With Unique Voices

No two people have identical vocal cords. The size, thickness, and flexibility of vocal cords vary from person to person, contributing to the uniqueness of each individual's voice.

But many of us can tend to sound the same, especially if singing in the same genre. On the other hand, some legendary folks are so unique that when anyone hears their voice on a song, it'll be way too easy to guess. 

A unique voice doesn't necessarily mean having a technically perfect; it's about embracing and accentuating the distinctive qualities that make your voice special.
