"person who sings songs in front of an audience" is over-specific, since it excludes people who only record music, but don't perform live. Superm401 - Talk 08:38, 26 May 2013 (UTC)


Singer and vocalist are synonyms. Littledogboy (talk) 17:08, 9 July 2013 (UTC)

Rapper is not singer but vocalist. --Infovarius (talk) 19:07, 11 July 2013 (UTC)


Is singer a subclass of vocalist? If so, why is commons category vocalist and not singer und why has vocalist the same commons category?--Giftzwerg 88 (talk) 00:28, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

Please read above arguments. I don't know why they decided to merge vocalists and singers at Commons. Also look at subclasses of vocalist (Q2643890). --Infovarius (talk) 20:41, 27 October 2014 (UTC)
