I heard a singer songwriter sing alone with her guitar, putting her vocals and guitar through a standard Boss RV-6 pedal, and it was not only beautiful, but clear and crisp. I know this is 2 years later, but leaving this comment here for future reference. I think most pedals, as long as they are a reliable brand will work. With that said, how you EQ the whole mix will probably have a large impact on how it sounds, and just don't overdo it with the reverb. If you're just starting, then experiment. Maybe ask to borrow one from a friend before you buy. If it sounds good, it's good. No matter if it wasn't necessarily made for that purpose in mind.
Most guitar pedals do not give you a "wet only" output and that's what you're going to need.
