Heart 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 (28Nov08) - and more than half the 13,500 rockers who have participated picked the Alone 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.
The Parade.com poll officially continues until the end of the week (05Dec08).
