Suggested "Who is your favourite female singer?"

Do Welsh people actually always say "female singer" in English? In the US, we would usually simply say "singer," since the word is not gendered.

No, but the sentence in Welsh is specifically referring to a female singer

Thanks, so then, one can refer to a female singer as a gantor. I thought that might be the case, a bit like actor and actress in English.

Seconded. Unless you're feeling really saucy and want to say chanteuse, I guess?
