#3 Santino Fontana
You've probably heard Santino Fontana sing without even realizing it. Outside of the Broadway world, he's known as the voice of Hans in Frozen, but he has done oh so much more. You can also hear him on the Cinderella recording, alongside Laura Osnes, as Prince Topher (Charming). Santino has a rich, gorgeous voice that isn't really used to its extent in Frozen.
