The greatest white exponent of Soul & RnB. Her Son Of A Preacher Man classic is still as popular today as it was in 1969

Deep soulful singing from this great classic.

Her first album was incredible I love to hear this girl sing bellisimo!

72 Tamia

Talk about UNDERRATED... She sounds exactly like her songs live. This woman is truly incredible. It's funny how the most deserving never get praise and notoriety they deserve!

I love me some Tamia she is one of the most love underrated R&B Singers of the 90's decade. I had once lifetime opportunity to see her in Concert back in 2012 in Columbus, OH at the Veterans Memorial Auditorium and she can truly sing. true talent is very hard to find and she sounds like herself on her Albums, hands down one of the best in R&B. I believe Tamia should join the reality show R&B Divas LA with Chante Moore, and all the other divas in the future.
