For rock I'll say england, hands down... though america certainly has some quality rock vocalists.

America is noteworthy if for nothing else than it's jazz and crooners. I'll toss in folk n' country as well.

Europe pretty much owns all though thanks to all their classically trained vocalists. There are some fantastic classical singers outside of europe, but europe produces the most.

I have yet to be blown away by any pop azn vocalist, though they're certainly no worse than our current pop music.

i like asian vocalists the best . the voices and music is kind of better than american ones . though the music and voices are kind of inspired by america . plus most (not all) songs in japan have really meaningful songs . there are some songs that try and direct people to a more positive view or something like that . though in asian music i enjoy listening to jap and mandarin(specifically taiwan) songs than korean and etc . but OPM singers have like an extremely good vocal range !

I've listened to Japanese, Korean, I think Mandarin or was it Cantonese, Vietnamese, Cambodian and of course American. American is at the bottom of these seven, well, maybe tied with Cambodian (I haven't heard too many of Cambodian singers, but the ones I have heard are HORRIBLE!).

Don't get me wrong, there are a FEW singers in America who are exposed with an amazing voice, but it is just hard to say it NOW when the majority of the popular "songs" is rap (and their voices are horrible) or if it is not rap, it songs like they are barely singing their songs.

And if I was to list down all the singers, America would definately be at the bottom maybe with Cambodia.
