The advice to find the right microphone is the best advice.
When you start adding vocal processors you are asking for trouble. The BBE, Aphex, etc. enhancers won't do what you want. They may make your vocals brighter, but a decent mic will do that much better.
Try as many vocal mics as possible. If you want a bright dynamic mic, try a Sennheiser E835, for a bright condenser vocal mic, try a Shure Beta 87A or an AKG 535..
Some of the top end EV mics are very clear and clean and the top end Audix mics are very present too.
Get a good mic and learn how to use it and forget adding too much electronic enhancement.
