Top 112 Easy Karaoke Songs For Females

If you are planning to raise the roof at a karaoke party, then it will help you to know what your range is. Knowing that will help you find easy karaoke songs for females.

Most females sing in either Alto or the slightly higher Soprano. Occasionally, you might get someone able to sing at contralto, a level below Alto. Some well-known Contraltos are Karen Carpenter, Cleo Laine, Billie Holiday, Etta James, and Amy Winehouse.

Some karaoke equipment these days might be able to adjust the key for you to fit into your range. Be wary, though, the backing could end up sounding like something out of the Chipmunks or Pinky and Perky.

One final point… 

Easy is a relative term. What is easy for one might not be for another. But, it will help if you know the song and even better if you can practice it before you go. Anyway, enough chat, let’s get on and find some great easy songs for females to sing at karaoke, starting with some easy-going, slower-tempo songs.

Easy Karaoke Songs For Females


Top 112 Easy Karaoke Songs For Females

1 You’re So Vain by Carly Simon

Released in 1972, this is a song that will be forever associated with Carly Simon. It will also strike a chord with the three men it is written about. One of those, according to her, was Warren Beatty. 

“You’re So Vain” reached #3 in the UK and #1 in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and America. A song that everyone will know. Once you are familiar with the tune, it is an easy song for girls to sing at karaoke. And it will suit those with an alto voice, as some of the notes go quite deep.

2 You’re Still The One by Shania Twain

Taken from her best-selling album, Come On Over, this is one of those evergreen classics. Slow and simple, and if you have a partner or boyfriend in the audience, it is a good choice for a romantic message to them. 

Some call it a Country Music track, but I don’t see that. It’s just a great Pop ballad. “You’re Still The One” reached #10 in the UK and #1 in Australia and Canada, and #2 in America.

3 Crazy by Patsy Cline

This is a Country Music song written by Willie Nelson when he was a songwriter in Houston before his career kicked off. Patsy Cline recorded it and had a huge hit in 1961. 

A much-loved song but one Patsy didn’t like at first. However, her husband persuaded her to record it. It became her most successful single, reaching #9 in America. And, on a re-release in 1990, it got to #14 in the UK. Not a difficult song to sing, but a few practice runs might be important to get you in the mood.

4 (They Long To Be) Close To You by The Carpenters

You need to be sure you can hit the low notes when using a Karen Carpenter song. She was one of the greats of the 70s and had a unique voice. If you want to pick a classic women’s karaoke song, then you can’t usually go wrong with choosing one written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David like this one. 

Released in 1970, the Carpenters established themselves with this recording. It reached #6 in the UK and #1 in America, Australia, and Canada. This is going to be a better song for an alto voice or even lower. Sopranos might want to consider something else. That said, when looking for easy karaoke songs for females, The Carpenters are always a good choice.

5 Summertime by Cleo Laine

Staying with the deeper voices, this is one for those who can hit those lower notes. British jazz great Cleo Laine was married to sax-playing husband, Johnny Dankworth. Between them, they helped to keep the interest in jazz alive in the 60s despite The Beatles and all the others.

This is one of those great songs from Gershwn’s “Porgy and Bess” that is a classic. There is plenty of opportunity to deliver an emotional performance with this with such a slow and measured tempo. If you can make those low notes as Cleo does, then you will stun your audience.

6 I Have a Dream by Abba

You knew there was bound to be at least one Abba track on this list of easy karaoke songs for women, and here is the first offering. This was taken from their album, Voulez-Vous.

Not a difficult song to sing, there is an easy, almost “child-like” simplicity to it that makes it an ideal karaoke choice. It was a huge hit, especially in Europe, reaching #1 in Holland, Switzerland, Belgium, and Austria. In the UK, it peaked at #2.

“I Have a Dream” is a song full of positivity and always gives feelings of reassurance and comfort. A memorable song for karaoke, but watch the delayed timing in various places. So, a few practice runs might help.

7 Un-Break My Heart by Toni Braxton

This song was written by one of the great songwriters of the 80s and 90s, Diane Warren. It is taken from her second album, Secrets, and is the song that she is probably most famous for.

“Un-Break My Heart” reached #2 in the UK and #1 in America and other countries. Very much a power ballad, it offers the chance to offer some expression through the rather sad lyrics. The chorus is powerful and very recognizable, which makes it ideal karaoke material.

So, now that we have easy-going karaoke songs for women covered, let’s hype it up a bit and get the people dancing.

8 Hit Me With Your Best Shot by Pat Benatar

Maybe not Pat Benatar’s most well-known song, but a sure-fire winner for two reasons. Firstly, it has an infectious rhythm and a good guitar riff intro if you want to get the people onto the dance floor. 

Secondly, it is a song about overcoming the odds and empowerment. A theme that many people can associate with. It was included in her most successful album, Crimes Of Passion. You can hear how pumped up Benatar is when she sings it. Can you do the same?

9 Believe by Cher

It’s been a very long time since Cher was that shy girl who wouldn’t sing unless Sonny was there beside her for support. Things have changed a bit since then. And, after a few reinventions and 60 years in the business, she is still here. 

This is one of the results of her reinventions, a song that became a Pop Anthem. Cher has become one of the women to represent women’s rights and empowerment.

This song is all about that…

“Believe” talks about removing obstacles when they are placed in your path and making the most of life. It was recorded in London and released in 1998. The song went to #1 in the UK and America and no less than 18 other countries. You could say it is successful and well-liked, a great choice to get them all going when it’s your turn to sing.

For those interested, it was the first song to use auto-tune on the vocals. This created a slightly distorted robotic effect on her voice which some now call the “Cher Effect.”

10 Mamma Mia by Abba

Back to Sweden again and Abba, who have given us so much great music over their careers. This, of course, is a huge favorite of theirs and not just for the single release in 1975. That went to #1 in the UK and four other countries and reached #32 in America.

They couldn’t fail, could they? Four great singers and great songs by one of the best songwriters and arrangers around. This track, though, increased its popularity through the film Mamma Mia! The Movie. A song that is likely to have them all joining in if you choose to sing it.

11 That Don’t Impress Me Much by Shania Twain

Canadian Shania Twain was once considered a Country singer. But her album, Come On Over, opened up a whole new fan base worldwide. This song is taken from that album.

Shania and her songwriters clearly have a sense of humor. This song pokes a bit of fun at so-called “stars” who seem to think they are of any relevance in the world. They aren’t, of course, which is what the song emphasizes. Shania Twain has a natural alto range, so this song should suit most female voices. A nice tempo and a bit of fun thrown in.

We have seen some great karaoke songs for females thus far, but how about some for the brave? These next songs are going to test you, and in reality, they need a “singer” to sing them. How brave do you feel?

12 Respect by Aretha Franklin

Most people will know this song as one of Aretha Franklin’s signature tunes. It was written and first recorded by the great Otis Redding in 1965, and Aretha released her cover in 1967.

The subject matter is obvious from its title. But it’s the power of the song and the way it is performed that is important. This is a full-on Soul song with its funky rhythm and vocal style, so it will take some performing. Get it even half right, and it will be a brilliant choice.

13 Say a Little Prayer by Aretha Franklin/Dionne Warwick

Let’s stay with Aretha for one more. This, of course, is probably her best-loved song and one that is still popular today. It was written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David originally for Dionne Warwick. Her version, released in 1967, had a slightly different style. I have attached both so that you can hear the difference in delivery and interpretation of the same song. You might prefer one over another.

Aretha’s version came from her album, Aretha Now. It reached #4 in the UK and 10 in America and sold well elsewhere. A powerful song but one that will need a well-controlled voice as it would be easy to overdo it. However, another song that, if you can get right, will be an instant hit at karaoke night.

14 Holding Out for a Hero by Bonnie Tyler

Let’s up the bravery stakes a bit with this song from Bonnie Tyler. Listening to this Welsh songstress belting this out will scare most people. She does give her songs everything right at the top end of her range. But don’t try and sing it the same way as she does because there isn’t anyone that can. 

“Holding Out for a Hero” has got to be belted out. However, trying to create the same vocal sound could do damage to your vocal cords, and I am not joking. That said, it is a great song for a karaoke party. It drives along with plenty of energy and is certain to be well-received.

15 Killing Me Softly by Roberta Flack

You might be surprised to find this song in this section of easy karaoke songs for females. The reason it is here is that because it is such a well-known and well-loved song, you have to do it well.

“Killing Me Softly” was written by Charles Fox and Norman Gimbel with significant help from Lori Lieberman. Flack released it as a single in 1973. The song is about a Don McLean concert Lieberman had been to.

It carries great emotion through wonderful lyrics, and it has to be handled delicately and sincerely. No histrionics and waving your arms about with this one. Once again, get it right, and it will be a special evening not only for you but for the audience.

16 Back To Black by Amy Winehouse

Given that this is a small section for those who want to try something adventurous, then this is certainly going to be that. Released in 2006, she wrote it during some very emotional times in her life.

In many ways, it became her trademark song, with her Jazz and Blues influences very evident. She does more than sing the song, she seems to caress each note. Here is a live version so you can get the picture.

Plenty of emotion will be required to get away with this song, but it mustn’t be forced. It has to come naturally and has to be bluesy. And it has to have that free jazz edge.

17 Memory by Elaine Paige

How brave do you feel? You will need to be very confident to take on this masterpiece of a song from the musical Cats by Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber. His musicals always give us one such song, and this is another one.

The musical opened in London in 1981 and was immediately given world-class status. This song was one of the reasons. It is a sad song, so you probably need to understand what it is about to give it the full treatment.

A Sad Story…

In case you aren’t sure, Elaine Page played an old cat, Grizabella, disheveled and now on hard times. She is not made very welcome by the other cats, aside from Sillabub. The song is about her remembering the days long gone when she was a beautiful cat and a dancer. If you do this song, take a deep breath and don’t overdo it, and have plenty of tissues ready.

Well, that takes care of the adventurous karaoke songs. Now, let’s go back to songs that are just great for karaoke.

18 If I Could Turn Back Time by Cher

Another incarnation of Cher, and once again, she created another image and managed another anthem. This song was taken from her best-selling album, Heart Of Stone.

“If I Could Turn Back Time” is a powerful song and a sure-fire winner at a karaoke party. There are occasions when even a small part of a song tells you it is special. This is one. Great song with a join-in and sing-along chorus.

19 Dancing Queen by ABBA

I suppose it is fair to say no karaoke event would be complete without someone trying this. This has just about everything – a good beat, nice tempo, and a great chorus and melody. And it isn’t that difficult to sing. Someone called it the greatest Pop song ever. They could well be right.

The vocal line goes across two octaves, but most people can handle that okay. It was written by Benny Andersson, Björn Ulvaeus, and Stig Anderson. Not surprisingly, it reached #1 just about everywhere. Unless you have been living on the moon, it is a song that everyone will know, and most will love.

20 Jolene by Dolly Parton

We haven’t had a second Country song yet, so let’s rectify that with probably the greatest female Country singer. This is another song that most will be familiar with. Released in 1974, it wasn’t a big hit in America, only reaching #60 on their main chart. It wasn’t released in the UK until 1976, when it peaked at #7. 

A song that is about insecurity but not necessarily about mistrust. Just the worry that another woman might interfere in her relationship. A fairly easy song to sing for a beginner to karaoke and one that will be appreciated.

21 What’s Love Got to Do with It by Tina Turner

Can we compose a list without including probably the best female Rock singer ever? Of course, we can’t. The difficulty is choosing a song from over 50 years of material. So, we won’t – we will choose two.

This first one is easy-paced and taken from her album, Private Dancer, from 1984. It was written by British songwriters Graham Lyle and Terry Britten and offered to Cliff Richard. Don’t think so, fellas. Finally, it found its way to Tina Turner, and we got a classic.

At age 44, she claimed the biggest-selling record in America in 1984, reaching #3 in the UK, and had success in most places. A great women’s song for a karaoke party, easy tempo and not too difficult to sing, and a song that everyone will know.

22 Addicted To Love by Tina Turner

The second track from the force of nature that is Tina Turner. This is a Robert Palmer song which he had some success with. However, it’s Tina’s version we all remember. You will note that I have included a link to a live performance in London. It’s the only way to hear this and prepare for your performance.

Maybe it should have gone amongst the section for those wanting to push themselves because it is going to do that. A great song and one that will lift the roof off any karaoke party.

23 It’s Too Late by Carole King

Let’s cool things down and take a Carole King song from possibly the greatest album of the 70s from a female singer. After years of writing successfully for others, this was her second solo album and was a masterpiece.

“It’s Too Late” is a cool, relaxed song about falling out of love with someone. Thought-provoking and not too difficult to sing, so it makes an ideal choice.

24 I Will Survive by Gloria Gaynor

Just about one of the most performed karaoke songs for ladies, this is something that had to be included here. This is a brief visit to the world of 70s Disco for a song about strength and empowerment.

A great song for just letting your hair down and singing your heart out. Be prepared, though, to have another song ready as well. It is quite likely someone else will want to sing it. And, if they are on before you, it could be awkward.

25 A House Is Not A Home by Dionne Warwick

Undoubtedly, one of the great voices over the last 50 years, and this, in my opinion, is one of her finest. Written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David, of course, it was first released as far back as 1964.

Plenty of cover versions by Shirley Bassey, Ella Fitzgerald, Dusty Springfield, and others will tell you what a great song this is. A song that takes a bit of singing, as you can hear from this live version. Showstopper? It could be if you really do a great job of it.

26 I Love Rock ‘N Roll by Joan Jett

And so, to the final selection of easy karaoke songs for females. This is a song that could bring the house down. It also means you could get your audience to join in as your backing singers on the chorus. 

Joan found the song in a performance by the London band The Arrows. It was written by an American living in London, Alan Merrill. Jett initially recorded the song with two of the Sex Pistols but released her revised version with her band in 1982. 

It reached #4 in the UK, one in America, and also the top spot in Australia, Canada, and Holland. Want to go out with a bang and plenty of “Queen-like” audience hand claps at your karaoke night? This is it.

About Joseph L. Hollen

Joseph is a session musician, writer, and filmmaker from south Florida. He has recorded a number of albums and made numerous short films, as well as contributing music to shorts and commercials. 

He doesn't get as much time to practice and play as he used to, but still manages (just about!) to fulfill all his session requests. According to Joseph, it just gets harder as you get older; you rely on what you learned decades ago and can play without thinking. Thankfully that's what most producers still want from him.

He is a devout gear heat and has been collecting musical instruments all his life. As his wife, Jill, keeps on saying, "You're very good at buying nice instruments, but terrible at selling them!".
