The Top Ten
One of the very few singers who has total command of melisma, modulation, communication of emotion without shouting, and the ability to navigate the time signature changes of the Bacharach-David songbook with apparent ease.
She is still recording and touring 50 years after her first hit song (Don't Make Me Over). A five time Grammy winner and charter of about 60 songs, she is also a great humanitarian -- giving back by supporting many causes and charities. The young divas of today should go to You Tube and study Dionne's technique and artistry, for she bridged the gap between R&B,
Soul, and Pop and she appealed to a wide audience spectrum - black, white,
Younger and older.
One of the very best singers of the 20th century and still recording and touring well into the 21st! One of three great singers born on December 12th in Manhattan's Jersey suburbs, the other two being Frank Sinatra and Connie Francis.

Sade is in a league of her own. Peerless.
Listen to her sing Is it a Crime at Live Aid or Pearls. She has style to burn.
Monicas voice is timeless! she slays live and on a record! The best alto since Gladys knight
Monica is legend! She embodies soul singing & she has been doing gracefully for nearly 20 yrs!
Eryka should be at least in the top 10 my girl don't play
One of the most talented woman on the planet yet she barely gets any credit. She has her own original style of R&B that can't be topped. #GOAT
Hands down Kelly Price. She can sing twinkle twinkle little star and make it a hit!
The greatest white exponent of Soul & RnB. Her Son Of A Preacher Man classic is still as popular today as it was in 1969
