Rolling Stone 200 Greatest Singers of All Time: Mixed Reactions Over Celine Dion’s Exclusion

Rolling Stone recently released its list of 200 greatest singers of all time. Given the influence of the magazine, it was inevitable that its choice will face great scrutiny and not everyone will agree with the list.

While the name had an impressive list of music greats, including Adele, Al Green, Aretha Franklin, Ariana Grande, Beyonce, Bob Dylan, David Bowie, Elvis Presley, Freddie Mercury, John Lennon, Joni Mitchell, Jungkook, Kurt Cobain, Mariah Carey, Marvin Gaye, Paul McCartney, Prince, Ray Charles, Sade, Sam Cooke, Stevie Wonder, SZA, and Whitney Houston, some social media users were not only surprised but offended that Celine Dion wasn’t on the list.

As far as they are concerned, the celebrated Canadian singer, who is currently battling several afflictions that have made her either cancel her concerts or defer them, is one of the greatest singers of all time and should have made the list.

But then, as some tweeps have also noted, the list itself is subjective probably coloured by the tastes and biases of those who made it. What’s more? A list of 200 cannot possibly incorporate the musical richness of the world and its creatives.

Well, RollingStone has had its say on the “200 greatest singers of all Time.”
