95 Kelly Rowland Kelly Rowland Kelendria Trene "Kelly" Rowland is a Grammy Award winning American singer, songwriter, actress and television personality.

Lol "the best r&b singer of all time", get outta here with that. She ain't even top 100! Just cause you like her doesn't mean she's the best r&b singer ever.

I love her so much

How isn't she in the top 100 wow?

Kelly has some good songs...better than Beyonce's music for sure, her voice is very sexy and a turn-on, but let's be honest, she's not that great of a singer, I'm still mixed on Kelly Rowland, she's better than Rihanna, Ciara, Ashanti and maybe even Janet Jackson, but even that's pushing it. Also in recent years her voice has become kind of nasal, but still not as nasal as beyonce's voice. I can't put her up there with Mariah...Whitney...Nicole...Mary J...Shanice...even Keyshia Cole. - NicoleScherzingersNumber1Fan

96 Celine Dion Celine Dion

Soulful, whimsical and all around great singer. She deserves to be on this list even though these days, she is mostly dance pop, soft rock. She used to be quiet storm r and b, soul, and adult contemporary, easy listening, and pop soul like early Mariah. Purchase her albums Unison, Celine Dion, and The Colour of My Love. Did you give enough love, everyone talking my baby now, last to know, with this tear, show some emotion, misled all great songs. I hope her 2018 album will be better than her last few albums or so.

I love her r and b song I'm loving every moment with you

Amazing! Adult contemporary Soul at its finest.

She is just not belivable, nno soulful to me

97 Demi Lovato Demi Lovato

She has a C5 voice range...
Her song is like a live song when you listen..
Even though there is many people, she can show her talent..

she is the best for me, she is more great than Selena, Miley and Taylor..

Um. She's not even r&b...please get her out of least Rihanna has some r&b influences in her songs but not Demi not at all. - NicoleScherzingersNumber1Fan

Miki Howard should be above most of the younger singers. Love under new management is a beast of a song.
