Greatest Motown Singers

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Janelle Monae

She is such an amazing singer and I wish people would listen to singers like her then that rap hip hop crap is so popular and I don't know why.

22 Jermaine Jackson
23 Bobby Taylor

Have You All forgotten the voice range on the cut "I Am You're Man", "Does You're Mama Know About Me", And my personal favorite "Malinda". Bobby Taylor Ranks right behind David Ruffin

24 Jackson 5

I like Jackson 5 because they have always been great Motown singers and they all have great talent that goes above and beyond a lot of other Motown singers that aren't as pitch perfect and don't have the amazing quality they have.
