star Ann Wilson
is leading a U.S. poll to find the best female rock singer of all time. Parade.com
has been inundated with voting fans since the poll went live last week - and more than half the 13,500 visitors who have participated picked the "Barracuda" singer ahead of stars like Tina Turner
, Sheryl Crow
and Stevie Nicks
Wilson, who has received 55 per cent of the vote, tells the website she owes her singing success to pre-show preparation: "I warm up before each show by singing along with a Lucinda Williams
or Emmylou Harris
CD. It helps to open my throat and my soul."
poll officially continues until the end of the week.
