Best Female Singing Voice Countdown Part 1/2

Disney is known for it's beautiful, talented singing voices - especially with the princesses. But which Disney female has the fairest voice of them all? Here is my countdown to rank just that!

25. Drizella: Sing Sweet Nightingale
Definitely the worst Disney singing voice and done so on purpose. Harsh, unpleasant and talent-less. Even Lucifer covers his ears. She can't hit nor hold a note. Lady Tremaine, Drizella's mother, sounds much better even in her older age.



Not quite as out-of-tune as Drizella but definitely not talented. Her voice is surprisingly not good for being a Disney Princess. It's a good thing she doesn't sing solo and her sisters (who both have much better voices) join in to balance out the song.


23. Arista: Daughters Of Triton

Note: The Atlantica princess (minus Ariel) only sing 1 song as a group with very little solo singing. They do showcase a sample of their voices though, which they are rated on, so please keep that in mind.

Among her sisters, she is in the bottom half of note-holding. Very deep but not earthy or powerful or pleasant. When she vocalizes, it sounds more like an older woman having a deep, slow chuckle. Not a voice worth any more listening than the seconds-long solo that she gives, if we have to listen to her at all.


22. Attina: Daughters Of Triton
Note: The Atlantica princess (minus Ariel) only sing 1 song as a group with very little solo singing. They do showcase a sample of their voices though, which they are rated on, so please keep that in mind.

Among her sisters, she is in the bottom half of note-holding. Not quite as high as Arista's voice is low but still in an unpleasant range. Her voice is very high in a way that many people often call annoying. It's right on the brink of almost being smooth, but doesn't quite make it. While she doesn't have the worst voice of her sisters, she's also far from the best and definitely couldn't make a living off of her voice.


21. Adella: Daughters Of Triton
Note: The Atlantica princess (minus Ariel) only sing 1 song as a group with very little solo singing. They do showcase a sample of their voices though, which they are rated on, so please keep that in mind.

Among her sisters, she is in the bottom half of note-holding. A much more talented version of Arista's voice would be the best way to describe Adella's. It's a similar deep range but much smoother and more pleasant. It might be worthwhile to hear a bit more from her and hear what her full range and talent really sounds like, or it might not. It's a bit hard to tell with this voice.


20. Andrina: Daughters Of Triton
Note: The Atlantica princess (minus Ariel) only sing 1 song as a group with very little solo singing. They do showcase a sample of their voices though, which they are rated on, so please keep that in mind.

Not super pleasant sounding but can hit some high notes and hold them longer than half of her sisters. There's something of a sharp, bitter-sounding element to her voice that is very unpleasant to listen to. It's not very deep and it's not very high but it's also not very smooth, either. Perhaps if she were able to showcase more of her voice, it might grow on a listener's ears.


Not as powerful as her oldest sister Ting-Ting but so much more talented and on-key than her older sister Mei. When she adds her voice to Mei's, it makes the world of a difference - in the best way. That shows her voice is pretty melodic and she can hold some decent notes. However, when she sings solo it almost sounds worse than Mei's. Her voice gets very high and sounds unnatural, like a caricature. So that's a bit confusing.


18. Alana: Daughters Of Triton
Note: The Atlantica princess (minus Ariel) only sing 1 song as a group with very little solo singing. They do showcase a sample of their voices though, which they are rated on, so please keep that in mind.

The better version of Attina's voice, in a similar high range but much smoother. She holds her vocalization note a tad longer than most of her sisters and does so beautifully. Her voice doesn't need to be heard too long before recognizing the obvious talent there. This is a sweet and harmonious voice that would've benefited the audience had it been showcased a bit more.


17. Aquata: Daughters Of Triton
Note: The Atlantica princess (minus Ariel) only sing 1 song as a group with very little solo singing. They do showcase a sample of their voices though, which they are rated on, so please keep that in mind.

Smooth, beautiful and able to hit high notes perfectly. Reminiscent of an opera singer, likely to have a nice range. She holds one of the longest notes of her sisters and performs it in a very melodious manner. It's too bad she didn't sing solo a bit longer so we could explore that pleasant sounding voice.


As her voice is in-tune and she can certainly hold a note, talent isn't really a problem here. Unfortunately, there is a generational problem here. While the baby-like "boop-oop-a-doop" voice may have been a hit in the 1920s-1930s, it's definitely not a hit now. It's no wonder that this style of singing went out of style and didn't last very long. It's definitely a fad-style rather than a timeless one. That being said, Snow's version is definitely less annoying and smoother than Betty Boop's. When her voice is doing less of the baby style, it sounds it's smoothest and unpleasant - such as in the song "Whistle While You Work" as opposed to "I'm Wishing". The most outstanding things about Snow's voice are her note-changing and high-hitting ability. The one good thing about the baby-sounding voice is that she can hit some incredibly high notes, similar to a bird or a whistle yet much more pleasant-sounding. She doesn't have a very dynamic range but when she vocalizes in "Whistle While You Work", there is no denying her singing talent.


15. Wendy & Alice (Voiced By Same Person):
Wendy: Your Mother And Mine
A bit deeper than Alice's voice (likely due to the actress being a couple years older) but not really better. She can definitely hold her notes better than Alice does but the deeper singing voice is not as smooth as Alice's. There also seems to be an unnatural element to her voice here. Similar to Alice's voice, this wouldn't make karaoke listeners walk out the door but it wouldn't warrant a contract from a scout, either.

Alice: In A World Of My Own & All In The Golden Afternoon & Painting The Roses Red
Pleasant sounding but not very talented. Her voice does not have a very dynamic range and as proven in "All In The Golden Afternoon", cannot hold long notes nor hold high ones and sound as beautiful as when singing in a lower tone. While it isn't unpleasant to listen to this singing voice, it's not one worth paying to listen to. It's about as good as a decent karaoke voice; Not bad enough to hurt your ears but not good enough to impress them either.
*Note: "Do You Want To Build A Snowman?" not included to different voices and age changes.

Her voice has a distinct talk-singing element but seems to really work. She certainly has the talent to hold some pretty long notes and a surprisingly wide range as well. She doesn't sing the highest notes of any character, nor the lowest, but she does have a talented range that hits pretty high as well as low. Even though there is a very high and feminine element to her voice, it doesn't at all take away from the quality of the deeper, resonant elements of her voice. In fact, this dynamic range actually makes her voice sound more symphonic and harmonious overall.


The more mature version of Anna's voice as it is more sonorous and even more beautiful. Where Anna's voice is a bit more on the feminine and delicate side, Elsa's voice is more on the powerful and smoky side. In addition, her note holding ability is also more outstanding than Anna's and quite exceptional in it's own right. Furthermore, Elsa's voice resonates because there is a compelling element to her voice, an undeniable talent and ability to convey the feelings that the lyrics are portraying. It's not surprising that it was her solo song that hit the #1 list (thought it blends beautifully along with Anna's) and it is far better than her celebrity counterpart's voice, Demi Lovato. That being said, some have argued that her voice is shrill and nasally - it can sometimes sound a bit that way but that's not really an accurate assessment of her voice.


Although this voice is done by the singer Mandy Moore, it's not quite as mature as the real Mandy Moore's voice. Unfortunately, this takes away from it as it is performed in a talk-singing style, similar to Anna's but not as smooth. Perhaps there is a bias here because the real Mandy Moore's voice seems so much more beautiful and fulfilling than Rapunzel's version of it. Perhaps the problem is trying too hard to make Rapunzel's voice sound childish when Mandy Moore is definitely not a child anymore. The most beautiful Rapunzel's voice sounds, as well as the closest to Mandy Moore's actual voice, is in the "Healing Song" and "I See The Light". The slower pace works much better with her style of singing and particular voice. When allowed to express it, she has a talented range with smooth transitions.
