There has been a lot of debate on the internet recently about who is the stronger singer between Whitney Houston and Taylor Swift. But now, a new contender has entered the chat-- Adele.
There was a heated Twitter debate about who was "better" between Taylor and the late Whitney. It all started with the folks over at Barstool Sports, where one person argued that Taylor was more well-rounded overall. Well, needless to say, this didn't sit well with her colleagues or the online community who pointed out the absurdity of comparing the two. Let's be real, Whitney is in a league of her own, both vocally and culturally.
The argument made was that Taylor writes most of her own songs and therefore is the better artist. But I don't know, that's still up for debate if you ask me!
Now, Adele has been thrown into the mix as well. Piers Morgan recently claimed that she is up there with some of the greatest singers of all time, including Whitney. And there are others who seem to agree. They believe Adele has some of the best vocals in the game right now and should be compared to other modern-day legends. This is definitely a more serious take than those who think Taylor is the best.
However, there are plenty who aren't so quick to let Adele into the icon club. They argue that while she is a solid singer and may be the best among today's female artists, she doesn't quite measure up to the likes of Aretha Franklin, Celine Dion, or Mariah Carey when it comes to hitting those high notes.
Let's be honest though, today's singers just don't have the raw vocal talent that artists of the past possessed. Adele comes close, but she probably still has some work to do to reach that level.
In conclusion, while the debate about who is the strongest singer continues, one thing is for sure: the vocal powerhouses of the past are hard to beat.
