King Singers (lat. Basileuterus ) Is a numerous genus of songbirds of the arboreal family.

Small birds are common in Central and South America. A characteristic feature for most species is the presence of a stripe on the crown, stripes on the sides of the head, as well as the so-called "eyebrows". The upper plumage is more often from olive green to olive gray, the lower body plumage is from yellow to dirty yellow or from whitish gray to whitish yellow.

The genus includes 22 to 23 species.
