Here's Your Chance: Help NPR Select the Top 50 Voices

ONE-OFF EVENT. PROB. SHOULD KILL THIS POST From NPR's website: In January 2010, NPR will launch a year-long exploration of 50 great voices in recorded history. The series isn't an attempt to catalog the so-called "greatest" singers. Instead, we hope to discover and re-discover awe-inspiring vocalists from around the world and across time. We asked you to nominate artists for the series and we received thousands of options. NPR and a panel of experts are in the process of whittling them down to about 100 singers — a mix of familiar names and surprising discoveries. Explore some of the nominated voices, choose five favorites you think should be included in the final 50 and tell us why. Placido Domingo was one of my picks for he never ceases to amaze me. I'll keep you guessing as to the others, but I will say my selections covered different styles of music. Now it's your turn.
