The Contenders: Page 2
Joss Stone has the most powerful, and biggest voice, alive today. When it comes to soul she is the one you should listen to. She deserves to be number 1, there is no doubt about that! I love all of her work!V 1 Comment
She's the best. There are no other singers that could both sing and write with her depth and maturity at such a young age..
She was amazingly talented, there's something very real and special about her what vocalists lack these days
She was the best and most beautiful soul singer of all time and it is so sad how she died so young R.I.P.
There is no comparison. She is pure soul...
There has never been anyone with the amount of control that Toni has over her lower register PERIOD! Her voice is beyond soulful it's simply perfection! Toni Braxton is a unique talent whose vocal creativity is unmatched! The only other female vocalist who comes remotely close in regards to uniqueness is Phyllis Hyman!
Dionne is 2nd only to aretha is number of charted singles. Her inimitable voice coveys all emotional facets without resorting to the shouting so prevalent today. She is one of the few singers who can handle the key changes, time signature shifts, modulations, etc., of the Bacharach/David Songbook with apparent ease (e.G., check out "Promises, Promises"). Also,
She can belt out terrific emotional anthems --check out "His House and Me"
On You Tube or "All in Love is Fair".
She was very good too and had many hits.
She was fantastik. all her songs were very good.
Bert Bacharach wrote many good ones for her.
No-one ever came close. Ask Aretha or Gladys. She was their favourite soul singer. Totally stunning.
Donna - natural talent, exceptional beauty, versatile and smart; she broke down barriers and paved the way for the Whitneys, Beyonces and Mariahs who came along after she broke really big in the mid-seventies. Underrated for sure, but, a lot of the reason for her not receiving the recognition she deserved was by her own career choices. She would often say that she wanted to be just an "ordinary girl" in this life. However, she was one of the chosen few who was gifted by our Higher Power with extraordinary abilities, singing being only one of them. She reared three exceptionally talented, beautiful daughters (much like Miss Ross) but, unfortunately for the rest of us, she was called away far too soon. After three years, I still can't get my head around the fact that Miss Adrian Donna (Gaines) Summer is no longer a part of this life. But, I will see you in Heaven! Donna (is) a legend in music history and an true icon in life (without a doubt). Humble and sweet, she will always ...more
Her range was incredible!
I can't believe she's not on this list. She should definitely be in the top ten.
