Celine or Whitney? Whos got the better Pipes?

Both ladies have amazing voices.

But whos the better singer? Not song selection, but talent wise who have the stronger voice????????

My pick? CELINE DION?

WHY?

I think Whitney is overated, besides the fact that recently she has not been able to sing the high notes of her early career. A side affect of over prolonged drug useage . Also i find that Celine has very subtly melodies that she can control, her voice never cracks and she has a wider range on her vocals.


May i also add that Celine treats her voice like it should be treated. With Respect.

She sings 5 shows a week, and she is NEVER off key. Thats impressive.

Also, I believe that most everyone in the Music Business refer 2 Celine as "the top notch female vocalist" of her time (cher)

However i have a friend who believes Whitney Houston is a tier above Celine and her voice is more powerfull. Your thoughts?

They used to be equal but now Celine's far and away the better.

Re: Celine or Whitney? Whos got the better Pipes?

I prefer Whitney's voice but I haven't heard her sing for ages.

I doubt she'd ever be able to do the five shows a week that Celine does though .

Two important points to take into consideration.

No one will ever beat Whitney at her "I will always love you" phase. That song is the most played song ever - and it is funny to listen to other people trying to sing that song.

Celine is a dependable workhorse with an incredible voice - but voice is not everything. Charisma and putting emotions in a song are also important. In that department Whitney - used to win. No way to know yet if she still has it in her.

Re: Celine or Whitney? Whos got the better Pipes?

^ I don't disagree that if both were at their best, Whitney is a better performer than Celine.

The fact is though that Whitney's best may not be forthcoming any time soon if ever again.

I remain ever hopeful of a successful mega-comeback though.

Who's got the better pipes? Well to be honest I've never had the opportunity to closely inspect the plumbing of either one.

whitney without a doubt!

someone talked about putting emotions into a songs and IMO whitney was excellent at that. i remember when she sang i have nothing...it sounded like well, like she really had nothing!

celine though, has a very "pure" voice.

still, nobody beats my girl MARIAH!

Re: Celine or Whitney? Whos got the better Pipes?

If we're talking crack pipes, probably Whitters. I wouldn't put anything past Dion though, she's a sly one...

Man whitney hands down...though celine has a beautiful voice...its somethiing about Whitneys voice (b4 the drugs and shit ruined it) she set the standard of how R&B ballads suppose to sound. Whitney is one of the greatest vocalist thats walking the earth.

Venus and Serena ....Often imitated NEVER duplicated!!!!!!!

I love them both. Celine earns more respect, but Whitney has a warmth in her voice that Celine just doesn't have. Even though I think Celine has an amazing voice as well.
