There are certain factors that separate the vocalist and singer terms. The main difference is that a singer is used to identify someone who sings in a range of circumstances such as for a film or album, whereas a vocalist will be a singer with professional training sometimes. A singer may not have the traditional training in order to draw on a more natural talent. It’s not unusual for the words vocalist and singer to be used to describe the same person. It is best to rely on information given about the artist rather than the initial terms used when hiring singers or vocalists.
