* Lead singer Bert Mccracken of The Used has a harsh speaking voice (possibly due to years of smoking) but his singing voice is relatively high and clean
* Julee Cruise has a soft, airy singing voice, while her speaking voice is significantly lower and raspier. This is most evident in her song "You're Staring At Me", which starts out with a short spoken word monologue.
* [[GreenDay Billie Joe Armstrong]] speaks with a normal California accent and sings with an English-sounding one - not surprising considering some of his biggest influences are British punk bands.
* ChristinaAguilera initially startled people with this - her speaking voice is generally on the higher-pitched, softer, girly side. Her singing voice tends toward "deep bellow".

* Freddie Mercury of {{Queen}} had a rather baritone speaking voice, but a high angelic tenor when singing.
** Roger Taylor, the drummer and occasional vocalist of {{Queen}} even moreso. His speaking voice was [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nakYjO2xDoc rather high and soft]] and yet he could either sound [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i_NeqJlrINc extremely masculine]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kw4sSZuBDN8 extremely feminine]] or [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aRw9CW7iMZk rather normal]] when he was singing. Roger, without a doubt, had the most versatile voice and the widest vocal range in the group.

* JossStone sings with a contralto American accent, so it's surprising to hear a high-pitched girly British accent come out of her when she speaks.

* Yutaka from ''Shounen Note'' is a boy soprano so this is obligatory. Vladimir is also a famous boy soprano. It's a manga so we don't hear their voices however boy sopranos have very high pitched, usually feminine sounding singing voices.

* Much like the above-mentioned Till Lindemann, MarilynManson also is a much, much calmer sounding person when he's not singing. Although, the drugs likely were partially responsible for that one.

* ChrisRock has a loud, abrasive, raspy voice when he's doing stand up but when he speaks in a regular conversation he's very soft spoken.

* Chester Arthur Burnett, a.k.a Howlin' Wolf, is pretty notable is being the one blues artist whose singing voice actually does match his speaking voice. Fellow bluesman, Buddy Guy, was one of those to make note of that.

* Ian McCulloch of EchoAndTheBunnymen. After his singing voice changed due to heavy smoking, it can be hard to understand what he says when speaking normally.

* ''Disney/OliverAndCompany'' deliberately averted NonSingingVoice by hiring actual singers Creator/BillyJoel and Creator/BetteMidler to play Dodger and Georgette... and Dodger ends up sounding like a completely different character when he switches from speaking to singing.

** Stormer's voice is high pitched and squeaky but comes off as similarly deep to Kimber's in her duet, and occasionally her backup vocals for Misfits songs. Despite popular belief Kimber and Stormer actually used different voice actresses in "I'm Okay".

** Minx has a noticeable European (German?) accent when she speaks however when she sings she has a deep voice with an American accent. This is modt noticeable in "Destiny".

** In "Winter Wrap-Up", Ashleigh Ball's singing as Applejack and Rainbow Dash hardly sounds like either's speaking voice.
*** Odd, considering her output as vocalist for the band Hey Ocean!, where (depending on the album) she has sounded like either one.
