Capital Dance has rounded up some of the best vocalists featured on the biggest dance hits ever made.

There’s no denying that vocalists are the backbone to a lot of seriously iconic dance anthems and a lot of the time, it’s the reason why you recognise a track instantly.

So, we’ve decided to put together nine of our favourite vocalists who are featured on some of the biggest dance hits ever.

Becky Hill

I think we can all agree that Becky Hill has one of the most distinctive voices in dance music, so it’s no surprise she’s been featured on a countless number of anthems.

Starting off her journey on The Voice back in 2012, she’s gone on to do amazing things, after making it to the semi-final stage of the show.

With hits such as ‘Back & Forth’, ‘Lose Control’, ‘Wish You Well’ and ‘Better Off Without You’, there’s no denying Becky’s talent.

Vula

Vula has worked with a number of notable DJs and producers to make some of the biggest dance tunes.

‘Turn Me On’ by Riton & Oliver Heldens was definitely one of the most anthemic songs in the past year, and Vula’s vocals are definitely the cherry on top!

An undeniable vibrant voice in dance and house music is definitely Sharlene Hector.

Every time ‘Step It Up’ by Armand Van Helden & Riva Starr comes on, Sharlene’s soulful voice adds even more of a feel-good vibe, so she had to make the list of top vocals.

Shingai

Those of you who grew up listening to the Noisettes will know the mark Shingai has made on the music scene.

As the front woman and the bassist from the group, she has dominated the dance music scene over the years, so we had to give Shingai her accolades.
