OK now this isnt a hard one for me. I say Aaliyah and not because she passed away but because she has more than vocal talent. Aaliyah has a 4 octave range without whistle notes. Mariah has a 5. If you listen to aaliyahs song i care 4 u, you will see that she sounds like christina aguilera without the high notes. her voice riffs and runs throughout the song, and she can also go very high with her notes as well. her lowest note shares the same range as mairah's lowest note. Aaliyah has alotmore soul in her voice as well. And when aaliyah was hitting high notes on the one i gave my heart to, she sounded like a true vocalist and the notes were perfect. Aaliyah voice was able to do more with the range without whistling the high notes.......which is no more than a scream........dancing aaliyah has this one.........acting Aaliyah acting skills were to amazing even though queen of the damn wasnt a very good movie........but like top actors say, its not the movie that shows acting skills, its the actor.Aaliayh was also a beauty queen and she probably had one of the best faces God has ever created. I love mariah so i hope we can be respectful in this forum and not insult either (mos def aaliyah) because we dont want to make the fans mad.

if it comes to blowing with tons of high notes, mariah wins on that note.

who knows what doors this room opens with peoples comments and insults, I'd say the best thing would be to keep aaliyah's names out of things like these, may she rest in peace her memory and music will live on forever and be cherished by many. Please don't start to try and compare her to anyone, living or non living.

i hate r&b but Aaliyah was the only singer who made me love this genre of music! She was so beautiful and her voice was too! For me, she has the most beautiful voice (please dont blame me, everyone has his own tastes) Her voice is so sweet and relaxing... when she died i was deeply sad.

So, to answer the question: i prefer by far AALIYAH!(even if i admit that Mariah has a beautiful voice too, it's just a taste question!:-)

Aaliyah, no question.

She redefined R&B before she even reached the age of 22.

The fact that you called Aaliyah an ugly butch is very disrespectful. And then try to slip in the rest in peace card in parenthesis. No sweetie. You don't say things like that. And regardless of how you, I or anyone else on this blog feels, Aaliyah will be remembered for her sweet angelic tone, unique belly dancing (lol), sense of style that no one can duplicate, timeless music and AMAZING personality. You should feel awful right now.

Mariah's vocals are out of this world and although I like Aaliyah to me her voice was just pleasant at best and nothing spectacular but good none the less. I think that saying she's a better singer than Mariah is just ridiculous but think that it ultimately comes down to taste, of u like r&b mostly you will like Aaliyah more and if you like pop and ballads it goes to mariah.
