Top Ten Greatest Female Soul Singerscomprendo
The Top Ten
She is a true legend... She is probably in heaven singing while all the people who died before her listen too the voice they all missed.
Although she's dead, she is and will be a legend forever.
At her peak her voice live was unmatched
The greatest voice Earth ever heard.V 10 Comments
The feeling and depth with which she sings, soul singing is all about letting come from your inner most depths and let it go making a connection with the audience and the universe. Her song Natural woman is superb. Whitney was amazing look at her she is dead because she didn't make quite the same connection with her soul as what Aretha did. I feel you need to look at the whole picture when you are choosing a soul singer. At the end of the day who do you want to identify with a dead drug addict with a grand voice or a woman who changed the music industry for the better who in spite of her troubles is still standing. Wow what a woman. Such a powerful vice such deep music and lyrics
One of the greatest, if not the greatest, musicians and singers of all times!
The best soul music vocalist all times.
I love her Voice, she's great!V 15 Comments
I think Etta James should be number 1. She has one of the most unique voices in history. It was bluesy, jazzy, and rock and roll all in one. And it was also super gritty yet super powerful. No one sounded like her and no one will.
The best, except for Aretha, who was also the best.
She has the rarity that hits deep into the soul.. Just perfect
I am nearly 50yrs young and have just started listening to Etta James.. What a talented woman with a fantastic voice, with such a sad, sad life.V 1 Comment
A supreme soul tour de force, soaring sweet tones and fantastic range, an exciting voice that kicks you in the stomach and kisses you on the lips and strokes your ears all at the same time, if you cannot hear it your are senile... Or dead...
I love Patti Labelle she my favorite singer I wish she would come to Springfield Kentucky
A serious living legend, who gave the world hits such as; If only You Knew and Lady Marmalade just to name a few.
She lifts up the whole genre.V 3 Comments
If you hear her sing you will always know who she is, and most importantly, you will feel her songs connect with you in one or more ways than you can now, and that is Adele for you.
Just listen someone like you or see the video it will touch you from inside and make you cry
A blessing from god himself for this generation to be honest
Adele is the present QUEEN OF SOUL on earthV 3 Comments
One of the greatest voices of all time. She created a new style of singing that many singers copied. You hear many singers doing runs in their songs, Chaka and Stevie perfected the riffs and runs.
This woman has more impact on the singers that followed her than any from her generation, Chaka has sung on so many different artist and most important she still sounds fantastic... She is her own categoru
Hands down the Queen of Funk!
Vocals that are unmatched!V 2 Comments
Hello where's Anita Baker?
Best soul singer of all time
One of the very very best
One of the worst girl singers ever.
ONE OF THE BEST FEMALE SINGERS OF ALL TIME
If Female Soul is the category then this list misses the mark. Top three has to be Aretha, Etta and Gladys (And the order of these three wonderful lady artist could be in any order from 1-3). How it ends up as 2,4 &10, I really don't understand. Everyone else is pop art!
Yes, Gladys Knight is ethereally sublime and wonderful, a smooth, soulful, purring bunch of heartfelt aching want- all wrapped up in a beautiful bunch of ladylove!
No one can touch the Empress! Her longevity of quality voice and music far outweighs all oh her peers, and her integrity too!
When it comes to the power of her voice,Gladys wins hands down.V 6 Comments
Talented, pretty and amazing voice!
I think Alicia should be at least top 5
Surely, if we are talking about now, Florence Welch works very well and she proves it with each song. Those tunes and her voice just makes one shiver. She definitely belongs here.
She's amazing. Best singer of the century, hands down.
I think Diana has the great potential she had her own group she stared in moves she became a solo and now has a movie made just for her and the Supremes /dream girls
Shes the est because her voice was diferenet but the heart was the same she was a soul singer loved the black culture and never felt used she always fouth for respect and love for everibody
She's the Lonely Bird...
The Star and the Moon. She is simply THE BEST.
Teena Marie has something that Whitney, Celine and Beyonce do not have... PASSION. Listen to the way she vocally expresses a soul weeping on Cassanova Brown, without using any words.
I have seen contestants on THE VOICE and XFACTOR sing Whitney, Celine, Beyone and match them... Soemtimes even own the song. However, I have yet to hear ANYONE interpret a Teena Marie ballad and not make my ears bleed.
Listen to Teena's cover of "Wishing on a Star" or her song "Naked to the World" and you will FEEL the passion and soul this little white girl emits from her heart.
She is one of the few artists to whom I can listen over and over and not grow weary. It is always a thrill to hear the unique vocal techniques she has developed to express emotion.
Truly miss her.
Next to M.J. B Teena is without a doubt one of the best there is!
Musical Genius...one of a kind voice and song writer.
In a class of her own. UntouchableV 2 Comments
