Top Ten Best Black Singers
The Top Ten
These lists are bogus. on one hand you're calling artist the greatest, then you're judging looking, versus talent, which you obviously don't have the proper background to judge. Metaphors, perspectives, backgrounds... I'm offended and compelled at the same time. Some of you people have a voice and platform and really just need a rocking chair and a coffee mug. Your opinions are based on white - surface - views, and represent NOTHING. This page, and any other's like it, get a FIRM - THUMBS - DOWN. Nothing is being represented on this site correctly.
"He is the most wonderful, talented, handsome and the most kindness man that has ever lived as a black artist. He inspired so many people to be what they want thanks to his words and his music. He is a legend that will never die even if it means that he is not here with us (if you know what I mean)
RIP "King of Pop"
He was #1 in fame, charisma, best albums, best dance, you name it. No one has come along yet that can top him off. Name anyone you know, if possible, that could have stood next to Michael Jackson and be as good as he was for just 50 seconds. Anyone!
Michael Jackson is the most ICONIC black singer, world's BEST dancer, the best father in the world to his 3 beloved children and the most BEAUTIFUL man of all time. Even his Triller album is the best selling album of all time.
It's one thing to have the ability to sing and another thing to know how to sing. Whitney Houston knows how to sing. And it's not so much about her vocal range as it is about her natural musical gift. To paraphrase her Cinderella soundtrack, there is music in her!
She is so inspiring. She has died but she still lives in my heart. I love her and I still wish her the best. There is not a day that I go without listening to her beautiful voice. She is my icon, and I hope to be like her someday
Whitney is the best! No other female singers of this era are worthy of even shining her high heels. Her matchless voice will be greatly missed! Beyonce only wishes she had a voice like "The Voice! "
I can't believe Beyonce is above Whitney Houston. Compare their versions of the Star Spangled Banner, then anything of Beyonce to "I Will Always Love You". Thank you very much
I LOVE... BEYONCE... Very much because she has a unique voice she is a talented singer that's why I like him very much he is a huge insparation for me... Not like mariah carey she is only depending on his whistle she is not really showing his real voice so that I can judge if she can get a high notes... Like BEYONCE, charice, celin etc... I love beyonce if she is singing... LISTEN... And others... Sorry funs of mariah I just want to show mariah his real voice not whistle... Good luck I LOVE YOU BEYONCE KNOWLES...
Probably one of the most humble artists in the industry to date. Beyoncé writes her songs and places her hooks and melodies. She is always present when it comes to the creation of her music, videos, performances, and documentaries. People may go on and on saying that she is fake, etc. But Beyonce is one of the most iconic and legendary voices and figures in the music industry, period, not just in the black community, but in the human race.
She pretty not dead yet and y'all putting all these old people on this list damn Beyonce Is beautiful talented she might show too much ass and do too damn much but she flawless but that video to flawless had me thinking she was in hell girl you could do better but I still love you U. Pretty and you be doing them runs like I wish I could sing like you though
I don't know why ya hateing becaUSE BEYONCE IS AWESOME AND SHE GOT SWAG AND I WOULD LOVE TO BE HER FOR BLACK HISTORY SO TRY NOT TO HATE BUT AT LEASE TRY TO SAY THANK YOU BECause BEYONCE made some good music like ego, party, love on top, and even best thing I ever had and that right there is some awesome music!
Stevie wonder is the most prestigious black star ever for he's endowed with qualities rarely found despite his impairment. I consider him above the other four stars Michael jackson, bob marley, ray charles and jimmi Hendrix. improvisor, multilingual, cheerful and modest, there can't be a better singer in the whole world of black music? For me, he's the one, the only one.
Bey and Aretha I understand, but Rihanna or Chris Brown (and I'm 19, I should like them) being higher than him is ridiculous. All his songs are so uplifting, have so much music and Stevie can do absolutely anything with his voice. This is sad.
I think Stevie Wonder is far above Whitney Houston, Aretha Franklin, Beyoncé, and Tina Turner. Maybe not Michael Jackson but he is a very close second.
He is one of the best ever he is somewhere on the top 10 list
She has been crowned the best-selling black female artist selling over 200 million records within ten years! she definitely deserves a place here
Hell no, she is not the best at all. She sucks. She should not be this high, she can't even sing!
Man I Love Rihanna. I am A big fan! I wish I can see her in Real life. She has uniqueness about ehr... And I like it!
Rihanna should be at least in the top ten. She is way better than Beyonce!
Tupac was a legend along with everything he stood for. He had a good flow and lyrics that spoke to you
Tupac shakur is the best black singer after MJ! He sould be placed second after all!... If agree vote then!
Jay-Z ne-yo aren't better than 2PAC!
He is like one of the best artist the world has ever seen
2Pac is amazing, but I believe this list is for singers.
She is an awesome woman! Strong willed. Great singer. I love all her songs! That woman can dance! Up in age, but still kickin' butt!
I love you Tina you are my role model I wanna be just like you except skip out the beatings
Tina Turner is a legend. when she covers a song she makes it her own. She has a great voice and energy.
The most beautiful voice. And good songs.
Tina Turner speaks for itself.
These people were the foundation of music, had it not been for them where would music be? And also these people like aretha, ella and gladys really have made the impact, I only have a simple question 4 you, which set of music had soul (listen to common-I use to love her)
Aretha Is the best. I am a singer and I learned from the best. She exemplifies feeling and control in her music. She is the truth. the the true soul singer. Without feeling you have nothing. all hail the queen!
She has been copied by every other females singer since she started her career. That's why she is the Queen and the others are her subjects. Long live the Queen Ms. Aretha!
The biggest voice of them all. Aretha is beyond human.
Luther Vandross has the strongest male vocals of any black male. Whitney Houston once said, "No one can hold a note like Luther can" Mhmm that's pretty much sums it up. Luther had the soul, the groove, the voice, and the passion... Luther for Life! rest in paradise brother
Luther's voice is just one in a million, gets you emotional. Beautiful voice and beautiful man!
No one beats Luther, believe you me. The rest are screaming cats. Luther you were the man.
I still miss him so much! His songs were all about LOVE... Whether happily in, or sad to lose.
I'm 57 yrs old and I think usher is should a great man. He love and respect his mother a father to his boy and have a beautiful smile. and no matter what he go though god his there for him he just have to go to that quiet place. I have a son his age mommy good job.
Usher is super awesome and he knows Justin Bieber
Usher is better than 18 he should be higher
Usher rules! Especially that "More" song.
Janet Jackson is the legend and idol she can dance and sing and always was such a hit with her voice and moves. She needs to be number 2 because without her there ain't no beyonce.
Janet jackson is a idol. She should be on top without her there is no rihanna, pink or beyonce. Plus she is a jackson. Oh yea this is number one.
She is the reason why rihanna and beyonce are here beside whitney and mariah
Always will be one of the greatest performers of all time.
The Empress of Soul is still great, better than all of her contemporaries, Aretha, Diana etc.
Gladys has never got her due. Should be for sure in top three, with Aretha and Ella
He is the best ever... I don't care what others were saying... Anyway it's their choice...
But it wasn't a nice thing to hate chris brown for what he had done to rihanna, hey! He's just nineteen on that time. He's still young, so, he can still change his attitude. You know, just forgive & forget.
I love chris brown...!
Chris Brown is really inspiring, I can't imagine my life without him. I adore this man, I know he hit Rihanna but that was years ago.. But that still doesn't mean it's okay. But it was an accident.. Stop all the hate! I love you Chris
He deserves the second position after Michael Jackson, he also dances like Michael Jackson and will be the Michael Jackson of present era...
The best of his generation.
Better than Michael jackson in dancing but he is just 22 years and he got the time to prove the best with his great music.
This guy should be the best love singer of all time. He can really inspire you. His songs are lyrical compare to other love singers nowadays. He is like "The Apprentice of Michael Jackson"
He is talented, smart looking and he is like a young handsome man! His voice flows like a melody without music. His classic rapping songs are always engraved in your hearts
Definitely he should be on top 3 cause he's just amazing with all the songs he already sung!
He makes some of the greatest songs that will ever be made.
I love him, and I know that when he sings with so much soul you might think he is black, but he actually isn't. When I first heard him sing I thought he was black and I was very surprised to find out that he wasn't.
You all better be moving Bruno up to the top 5 and asap! 93!? Craziness, chop chop, get this man moved up!
People who have heard of Marvin Gaye would have made sure he would be above Chris Brown..
Wrote meaningful songs, that opened difficult questions of society and African American struggle for equality etc..
And what does Chris Brown write about? Sex, Girlfriends, being a gangster. Does he even write his own songs?
Having rihanna and beyonce above him is just insulting! I guess 12 year olds vote the most on this list!
Marvin should be in the top three, definitely the best black male singer of all time.
Meghan Trainor ruined his name by writing that annoying Marvin Gaye song.
Teddy during his Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes and first solo years will probably never be topped when it comes to sheer power, sexiness and soul in my humble opinion his debut solo album is the best soul album of all time.
Awesome sauce total soul and realism
Should be higher than beyonce!
Best sexy music ever made!
Why is this amazing man not in the top 5 or at least the top 10? And to make it worse, he is under beyonce the pretentious mainstream artist, rihanna who can't sing, chris brown who objectifies women in most of his songs, and Usher, Ne-Yo and other good singers who are good but not as great as Donny was. R.I.P.
I don't understand why this beautiful talent is not in the top 3 of this list. Her voice is beyond amazing. Her talent is equivalent to Whitney's and I know damn well that Mariah has way better vocals than Beyonce and Rihanna's combined! They wish they could sing like her. Besides Mimi's voice, she is also highly acclaimed song-writer; all of her hits are written by her. Mariah's music is a true work of art and it has inspire thousands of people to cultivate their own style of music similar to mariah's. She, Whitney, Michael, Prince, and Janet are the creators of today's contemporary music. Stevie Wonder needs to be on this list as well. I have nothing against Rihanna, Chris Brown, and Beyonce, I actually love them, but they are not true geniuses of music like what Michael, Whitney, Mariah, Prince, Janet, and Stevie Wonder are.
She is one of the most successful voices in music, why is not in the top three
Mariah Carey is only 15% to 25% black, she looks and acts white to most.
She isn't black and her voice is annoying. The woman lacks soul.
Yeah he should be top 10
KING. <-(notice the full stop)
Is good sexy singer
Chris brown, rihanna, beyonce and most of these people above him can't touch this man! When talking about the best, Joe needs to be in the top 10 or at least the top 20! He's stayed true to r&b for his whole career, beyonce, chris brown and rihanna are not r&b.
