A new interactive chart created by Concert Hotels seeks to identify the “world’s greatest singers” by pinpointing various artists’ recorded vocal ranges. The chart shows the “highest and lowest notes each artist hit in the recording studio.”
Based on the findings, Guns N’ Roses singer Axl Rose has demonstrated the greatest vocal range in studio. Mariah Carey comes in second, followed by Prince, Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler, James Brown, Marvin Gaye, Christina Aguilera and David Bowie.
The interactive chart also lets you see who has hit the highest and lowest notes on their albums. Check it out and play around:
