As a singer, I used my eight votes toward the singer list. I used four votes on mezzo soprano Joyce DiDonato and four votes on soprano Anna Netrebko. Joyce DiDonato is an inspiration to young singers. She has a very active internet blog that answers questions which many artists struggle with ranging from topics including role preparation and a singer's philosophy: http://www.youtube.com/user/TheYankeediva She actually spends time on communicating with her fans on her facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Joyce-DiDonato/207466962440 Her website contains her blog that talks about her extraoridinary life in the arts and how its important to our society: http://www.joycedidonato.com/ She is the ultimate artist! She focused on establishing a vocal technique that would allow her to sing anything she wanted to express on stage. And it's evident that she has achieved it! ^_^ Anna Netrebko is the down to earth diva with charisma. She is a diva to die for! Many opera purists deny her the right to being the successor to Maria Callas, but I believe she brings something special to every piece she sings.
