Life cut short one of motowns best part of the best duet singers of all time pairing with marvin gaye

107 Donna Summer
108 Paula DeAnda

Okay...she's not an amazing singer or anything, but her songs are cool and pretty catchy, she doesn't have a bad voice like rihanna or anything but not a strong powerful voice, but I think if people like May, Ciara, and Aaliyah can make it so high on the list then Paula should be at least in the top 100.

111 Stacy Lattisaw

She made an album with Johnny Gill, so already you should know that this lady is a good r&b singer! - NicoleJohnnyLutherBrianFan

115 Angela Bofill

This amazing artist could interpret an R&B or jazz lyric as easily as a leaf wafts on a gentle breeze with a tone that was as clean and pure as the driven snow. When she was felled by two strokes (in 2006 & 2007, respectively), the second one permanently robbed Angela of her ability to sing; & the world lost the voice of an angel. At least her recordings remain so that we may be able to continue to enjoy her magnificent gift for generations to come. - SusieQ1218

116 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
