Not everyone has the talent and the charisma to make it in the music industry, but these lovely ladies have both and more, which might be why they’ve all been publicly recognized for their efforts at some point in their careers. Be it through best-selling albums, music awards (locally and abroad), charting songs, or successful concerts, these women make us proud to be Pinay!
FN lists them below, and this month, we’d like you to tell us which amazing singer you think is the best vocalist. Whose stunning voice gives you goosebumps when she sings? Have any of these biriteras, soul sisters, or pop stars brought tears to your eyes with a particularly heartrending song performance? Let your voice be heard by taking the poll below. Scroll through the gallery until you get to the photo of your vocalist of choice, then click on the 'Vote' button. Remember, you will only be able to see your vote getting added to the numbers after refreshing. Voting ends on August 31!
Editor's Note: Voting percentage does not equal the number of votes. Remember that as the voting margin (difference among the number of votes per actor) between the leading actor and the other nominees increases, the voting percentages will change. The bigger the differences among numbers, the bigger the differences among percentages. This means that even while the number of votes for your bet is going up, the voting percentage can decrease.
