64 Diana Ross Diana Ross

She's just dynamic as a singer, has the most beatiful voice you've ever heard.

65 Dionne Warwick Dionne Warwick Marie Dionne Warrick is an American singer, actress and TV-show host, who became a United Nations Global Ambassador for the Food and Agriculture Organization, and a United States Ambassador of Health.
66 R. Kelly R. Kelly Robert Sylvester Kelly, known professionally as R. Kelly, is an American recording artist, songwriter, record producer, and former professional basketball player.

Now first of all when it comes to pure singing R. Kelly is right at the top, top 10 - 15 maybe. He sure is better than Rihanna, Ne-yo or Chris Brown, that's for sure. The Man is the King Of R&B! And yes, I love Jay-Z and 2-Pac but they are not SINGERS...

He is the best pure singer hands down

The best to ever do it! A trend setter!

67 Roberta Flack Roberta Flack
68 Wilson Pickett

Best of all time for men, particularly, because of her throaty, sexy delivery. Ella Fitz was better overall but without sex appeal
