I think it's a really good idea. It would be a little easier to decide, if you put their famous song titles to the options. E.g. "Let it Snow" from the "Die Hard"-movie-series. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0099423/
From Vaughn Monroe

I wasn't going for specific songs. More like famous singers who can sing anything you like.

FYC, three angelic voices:

Sinead O'Connor (she sang "Silent Night" for one the 'A Very Special Christmas' collections that is  the most beautiful version of an already beautiful song)
Natalie Merchant (also sang for 'A Very Special Christmas;' no one sounds like her)
Aimee Mann (just lovely)

And a few more:

Art Garfunkel (I could listen to him sing, or just talk, forever)
Michael Stipe (same as above; like Bono, who thinks Stipe is really a crooner, said, "Ohh, that voice... it makes musical instruments jealous")
Al Green (he has more soul in an eyelash than most people have in their whole beings)  
Mick Jagger ('talk about soul)

'Great idea, Peter!

Ruby,

Thank you for sharing Sinéad O'Connor version of Silent Night. Her a cappella version is appropriately simple and moving.

I'm also a big fan of Art Garfunkel.

There are countless excellent Christmas songs sung by many wonderful singers, however, I just love to listen to Christmas music sung by Karen Carpenter.

Peter,

Elvis is currently the second most popular choice. Since there are many people who impersonate Elvis, your poll may inspire bands of Elvis Christmas carolers. In fact this has happened at least once already:
