Top Ten Best Black Singers
The Top Ten
I love him! He has died but he still lives in my heart!
he was amazing! The way he danced was just brilliant! He was my inspiration!
"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!
He is the best! He defied the saying once you go black you never go back and look at him he is pale white! That man could sing and dance his ass off on stage!
Whitney top of the angels in heaven singing there is no greater voice God knows how to send us angels of talent then he calls them back to heaven when they start to mess up... THEN HE WILL SEND DOWN ANOTHER ONE JUST WHEN YOU THOUGH YOU HEARD IT ALL HEAVEN IS FULL OF TALENT.. BUT DRUGS ALWAYS RUINS EVERYTHING TALENT AND DRUGS DON'T MIX... SOME HOW STARS WITH GREAT TALENT ALWAYS LOSE IT ALL TO A MAN MADE DRUG... TALENT IS NOT MAN MADE IS A GIFT FROM GOD... YOU ARE BORN WITH IT THEN YOU PERFECT IT. I AM SAD YOU ARE GONE MISS HOUSTON RIP BUT YOU ARE BACK WHERE YOU WERE SENT FROM SO IS NOT THAT BAD... IF EARTH WOULD HAD APPRECIATED YOU RIGHT, YOU STILL BE HERE' BUT SOME BAD PEOPLE FED YOU POISON. AND HEAVEN TOOK YOU BACK JUST LIKE M.J. aND THE REST OF ALL THE GREAT TALENT THAT GODS SENDS US FROM HEAVEN BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL AND POWERFUL BUT WE JUST GET CAUGHT UP IN THE HYPE AND I AM PR BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN ANYTHING, WE ARE ALL ONE THINK OF ALL THE TALENT THAT LIVES TODAY, WE MOST RECOGNIZED ...more
What a brilliant voice well controlled the high notes she could summon from her 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
How on EARTH is Beyonce #2 laugh out loud. Like really, this is only a popularity vote, because Beyonce doesent even reach Whitney's toes.
TRIPLE THREAT! QUEEN OF R&B! AWESOME VOICE! And the list goes on and on...
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 is the best singer in the world she is awesome she does not have a bad mouth she is kid aportit and a very good person she does not do drugs or smoke and does not get got drank so you go go beyonce
Beyonce totally deserves to be above everyone who is below her - just listen to her singing listen on oprah or her singing on her I am... yours cd/dvd - she is so versatile and powerfull with her voice.
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.
Damn! Beyoncé and Rihanna are in the Top Ten but Stevie Wonder is only the 14th! He's the best before MJ so stop talking about Ne-Yo or Chris Brown!
Stevie wonder is DEFINITELY better than Rhianna and I've only heard like 2 of his songs!
I LOVE her! shame on CHRIS BROWN! she has this voice which is sexy yet it can be serious and have fun. I love you
Hell no, she is not the best at all. She sucks. She should not be this high, she can't even sing!
She is so amazing
She can sing and act. I love her in battleship.
Usher is super awesome and he knows Justin Bieber
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.
He is black I like him, that's is all
Usher is better than 18 he should be higher
Tupac was a legend along with everything he stood for. He had a good flow and lyrics that spoke to you
Tupac belongs in the top 5
Okay why the hell is 2pac #27 when he should be at least top ten jay z is not better than 2pac if you think he's is well your high
2Pac is amazing, but I believe this list is for singers.
Tina Turner is a legend. when she covers a song she makes it her own. She has a great voice and energy.
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!
She brought a new style to music.
I love you Tina you are my role model I wanna be just like you except skip out the beatings
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 thats 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!
Michael Jackson's voice is vastly overrated, there is no way he can have more emotions and sound better then Luther
No one beats Luther, believe you me. The rest are screaming cats. Luther you were the man.
Yeah he should be top 10
Give this man his credit while he is still here he is the best I don;t care what other think or says
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...!
I love chris brown except that he is wit rihanna which is wrong but I just love him
He deserves the second position after Michael Jackson, he also dances like Michael Jackson and will be the Michael Jackson of present era...
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.
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 THE BEST FEMALE POP STAR ON THIS PLANET MICHAEL JACKSON IS THE QUEEN AND ILL TELL YOU WHY... JANET IS THE QUEEN BECUASE EVERY SINGLE SON G, ALBUM AND FILM SHES DONE IS BRILLIANT FEATURING DIFFERENT STROKES AS A FILM GOOD TIMES POETIC JUSTICE, NUTTY PROFESSIOR, JANET, VELVET ROPE, CONTROL AND LOTS AND LOTS AND LOTS MORE THIS IS WHY AND R@B, SOUL, FUNK, POP ARTIST IS ON THIS PLANET MICHAEL IS THE KING FOR PROBLEY THE SAME REASONS BUT EVEN BETTER HIS MUSIC IS BRILL THRILLER BEST SELLING ALBUM OF ALL TIME 65 MILLION COPIES WORLDWIDE AND BAD AND SO MANY OTHERS LONG LIVE THE KING AND ALSO CARRY ON MISS JACKSON CAUSE YR THE BEST FEMALE BY FAR EVEN BETTER THEN THAT MONSTER (MADONNA)
No one can sing or dance like her... She's a legend.
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
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
He makes some of the greatest songs that will ever be made.
Definitely he should be on top 3 cause he's just amazing with all the songs he already sung!
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!
I am sorry but no one come even close to Marvin, a true legend RIP, he had the best voice and his songs had a massage not just OH Ah or I will kill you Mother F
My second best has to be Gil Scott Heron who his father was the first Black Soccer player at Celtic football club in Scotland, listen to Gil's songs such as the Bottle, Home Where the hatred is, New York is Killing me and The Revolution will not be Televised
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.
He was the tops, no doubt
Awesome sauce total soul and realism
Should be higher than beyonce!
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.
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.
Her runs are the best runs I ever heard in my life.
Ms favourite singer
I'm so dissapointed that he din't make it to the top 10 because ithink he is the best of all times
KING. <-(notice the full stop)
Is good sexy singer
