The Contenders: Page 2

21 Janelle Monae Janelle Monae Janelle Monáe Robinson, known professionally as Janelle Monáe, is an American singer, songwriter, actress, and model signed to her own imprint, Wondaland Arts Society, and Atlantic Records.

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 Paul Williams

Super underrated. One of the greatest voices of time. He could take your standard pop songs and turn them into soul masterpieces. The heart and soul of The Temptations. What a voice!

Paul Williams had a great voice,full of Soul and church on his day he was the best.

23 Jermaine Jackson
24 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

25 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.
