Celine Dion is renowned for having a strong, technically excellent voice. After releasing her Titanic hit My Heart Will Go On, Celine attracted a lot of attention. However, her admirers are recently finding it difficult to get over Rolling Stone dropping her off of their list of G.O.A.T. singers.

Rolling Stone has updated its 2008 leaderboard of the 100 Best Singers with its new 200 Greatest Singers Of All Time list. And although while the list of musicians is long and diverse as a result of the modification in criteria, there are a few controversial choices that have infuriated fans. Celine Dion’s exclusion from the list, according to TMZ, is probably the most upsetting.

Except for Dion being left off, there don’t seem to be any major shocks in the top 10 of the RS list. Aretha Franklin was the obvious choice for the top spot, followed by Whitney Houston, Sam Cooke, Billie Holiday, Mariah Carey, Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, Beyonce, Otis Reeding, and Al Green.

Some fans who are furious at Dion’s exclusion may want to draw attention to some of the questionable performers on the revised roster who lack what most people would consider a classic voice, but that’s where the new standards come into play. However, Celine doesn’t appear to mind at all, as she is busy honoring her illustrious career rather than responding to the injustice.
