...and that slide guitar! She's a tiny red-headed spit fire

Just the best... Style, sexy, fits rock country and blues.

44 Diana Ross Diana Ross

The full package - style, beauty, unique and totally commanding stage presence and the most underrated voice ever. Still touring and selling out venues such as the Hollywood Bowl after 50 years in the business and at the age of 72.

The best music ever, I defye anyone to listen to Baby Love without tapping there foot!

46 Roberta Flack Roberta Flack

One of the best singers and musicians ever. Roberta Flack is a must to all the listeners out there. She sang with such ease, silky voice and never never screamed for a note. She knew just what she was doing in the song. She never got insecure in her music, and she took risks. All of her work, and I mean all are rare Jewels. Sing Roberta, you made my life better by listening to you. thank you.

My all time favourite female voice. To quote Dionne Warwick, "Aretha makes you sweat; Roberta makes you think". Great interpretations of classic songs. She has a knack for doing so much more than merely covering a song; she's also a great arranger too, not to mention the piano playing.

I heard her records in the 70s and fell in love with her warm, enchanting, mysterious voice. She isn't played on radio and is now forgotten. What a shame.

She has always been my favorite.

49 Kiki Dee

Kiki Dee is the most under rated singer of the 70's. Should be in the top ten at least.

Just listen to I've got the music in me & Amoureuse. Kiki did more than just sing with Elton John.

50 Tammy Wynette
51 Marilyn McCoo

Wonderful person and great singer, I saw her once live on Solid Gold and she was so gracious to all of the staff and setup crew members and indeed the audience.

I heard several feminin singers for more then fitty years and it's very dificult to choose the better from one of them, but, In my opinion, Mrs. Marilyn was "the voice", a person who got, at the same time, force, strong and kinderness with sensuality. Simply unforgettable!

52 Patti Austin

U caught my ear when there was Jazz radio here in Detroit- WJZZ Icons ago & just like THAT the Sound of Jazz as We knew it was GONE In a PUFF of Smoke in the late 90's & Detroit has not had a REAL JAZZ Station since! There's where I first her Patti Austin & once on Soul Train! We got tickets for Her concert here but THAT was Cancelled! I loved her style & vocal talents SO Much but we don't hear from her much! Can't u & Quincy "Love" get together?!
