Whose your favorite 1D voice? Personally Ive always thought Louis had the strongest voice. He had s background and theatre so I feel he had a leg up. Next to Liam he was very strong too. I am dissapointed in that Zayn ft Taylor song because MOM was so good. That song is watered down pop garbage like everything Taylor does. Hes better working with Hiphop ppl. Harry&Niall are great singers too but Louis voice always stood out to me. Thoughts?

Same. Since the very beginning (I think the first 1D song I listened to was Got To Be You) and Louis voice was the one that stood the most for me. I always loved his voice even when I didn’t even knew his name or who he was. Like when I’m listening to 1D songs, I stop singing when Louis solos come because I want to focus on just his voice. I think his voice is so sweet, but also so strong at the same time. When I listen to IWTWYAS, my heart melts. To me his voice is the absolutely best 

Read NPR’s fascinating piece on Hurray for the Riff Raff: “How many choruses does it take to turn a party song into an engine causing social change?

Every so often a new voice engages these basic questions in subtle, exciting new ways. Alynda Lee Segarra, the 27-year-old guiding light of the New Orleans-based band Hurray For The Riff Raff, is this year’s champion.”
