Top 10 Most Legendary R&B Singers of All Timehatcher234
The Top Ten
These artists are terrible. Seriously, Beyonce does not deserve a number 1 spot on this list and what.. You have Usher and Chris Brown in the top 5. What a disgraceful list. Usher and Chris Brown would be nothing without the influence of one of the greatest entertainers of all time MJ. He is unrivaled today as not only one of the best dancers that ever lived, but also was a great songwriter and influenced people to the far corners of the earth with his artistic and musical genius. Anything less than number one is a disgrace to truth. Also someone better add the other Motown artist that invented the means to modern music! - SoulofTheLegends
I'm speechless. Get this boy higher. And Whitney in the 20s, seriously? Come on now! - anewman
Amazing voice, amazing charisma, amazing dancing. It just doesn't get better than the one and only Michael Jackson!
Are you all dumb? He should be number 1.V 9 Comments
Well there is so much to say about Kelly. He has been around for so long with hits on each of his major albums. The main thing here is his voice and his mind. No one compares to when it comes to his beautiful voice and his intelligence as a song writer and artist. The best vocalist ever right here!
R kelly is in a league of his own. Timeless... Classic hits. Genius song writing and vocal skills that punish all other voices. Everything he touches is phenomenal. Bow down to the king!
The rest of these names shouldn't even be on the list.
R.Kelly has a beautiful voice. He has been around so long and has always written timeless classics. He IS the King of R&B.V 12 Comments
I love Stevie Wonder And wanna see Him Live
Really! Chris stupid brown above Stevie Wonder! Really! - DaWyteNight
He's the best anyone can hear! He's mutlitalented, cool and he's got the moves. He can touch the hearts of millions and the smoothest guy I've ever seen!
King Michael Jackson should be on spot 1
I guess you guys all forgot about usher because if you remembered he would be number one. Yeah! On the confessions album was number one for ever. If you turned on the radio back then that was all you heard. Even before that he making classics like Nice^^Slow and you Remind Me. Also ever since then he has made non-stop number one hits. Although they are not as good as the old songs there are still some good ones. And Rihanna ahead of him! She's not even R^^B and all her songs sound the same.
Usher sould be in #1V 3 Comments
The true definition of artist. Some of the best love songs ever made belongs to this man, along with his incredible musical sound that blended with his lyrics setting the mood.
Just an amazing voice
Princess Peach. - AlphaQ
Al I can say the he has the most AMAZING voice ever! And he no.8 on the best dancers list... He must be at least at no.5 I mean like you'll probably won't vote because the rihanna thingy but he is changed and he's a better person now... I really want him to be at no. 1
He overcame so many difficulties and had the courage to carry on making great music. He is the best dancer out there and is the greatest and most talented artist out there right now.
Best ever he brings things to the table that people struggle to bring, he never disappoints when it comes to his music
Look at me now is his only good song - Thicc_NeesonV 22 Comments
Been in the industry for 40+ years and still going strong - Mickeyrule
He's most definitely legendary and timeless!
Donny Hathaway, Stevie Wonder, Wilson Picket & Maurice White musical spirits have morphed into what we call "Uncle Charlie! "... He's a beast..

Her voice is very powerful. Her song still be familiar for music lover in the new millenium. Such as "I Will Always Love You", "I Have Nothing", "I Wanna Dance With Somebody", "Greatest Love Of All" etc. Maybe she not a best selling singer but she has many title such as the voice, best debut album for the female singers, first female singer who has 3 number one single in billboard 100, first female singers who has album debuted at number 1 in US, singer who has biggest consecutive number 1 single I'm US, best soundtrack album for the bodyguard soundtrack, best selling gospel album for the preacher's wife soundtrack etc. She also a strong female. She can clear her struggless although she can't win the drugs. I Will Always Love You, Ms Whitney
The most amazing singer in history!
Her strong voice brings sincirity and purity to all of us you're the number of me we will always love you

You are a very singer keep it up
No one is more legendary than the father of funk
The Godfather of R&B
Hell no, this babbling bimbo is not legendary at all. She gives black women a bad name and is a horrible person for young black girls to be looking up to. - DaWyteNight
Bee is the number 1 queen vocalist of all time. Her songs single ladies, halo, diva, crazy in love, irreplaceable, listen, I was here, if I were a boy, broken hearted girl, run the world, poison, pretty hurts, drun in love, beautiful liar, hello are simply put the greatest songs of all time. She is more than a queen (goddess of rnb, pop). Her dancing is second only to M.J. She's the sexiest and most beautiful singer of all time, her videos are flawless, fashion sense to die for. Forget the haters who talk about rihanna, adelle, katy perry,l. Gaga E. T9 she inspired them to be who they are today. Losers only hate her coos she got every thing they don't got and uh... Her awards... She's the greatest performer I've seen and imagine writing those monster hits, don't also forget THE. C's survivor... She sings and dances at same time flawlessly, I guess that comes from lovin what you do to the point it hurts and she got a song for every mood you're in not like adelle and riri.. Love you ...more
Mariah IS THE BEST SINGER IN THE WORLD! Her voice is angelic, it takes you to whole another dimension! Her songs are so emotional and beautiful! She's an angel! Her voice range is unreachable, and she's also a very talented songwriter! I mean, there's no doubt, Mariah is number 1, and will always be! There's no singer like her. She's a legend!
I love the songbird tittle of her she really deserve it
Mariah carey should be the best female singer. She got the power to be "the voice". 5 octave range and her powerful voice makes the crowd feel the emotions and the meaning of the song. Most of the song she sing was written by her.

I mean come on. They said R&B! Anita Baker and Luther at 24 & 25, I mean Usher, Chris Brown, Rihanna and Beyonce are good, but their voices are predictable and they don't have staying power. Luther and Anita music was out in the 80's yet you ALWAYS hear their music playing on the radio DAILY. That won't be the case 30 years from now with Rihanna. None of her songs are oldies but goodies worthy.
Outkast is hip hop, not r&b - DaWyteNight
13...seriously? You got Chris Brown, Usher and Jay baby momma before this legend!
Luther is one of the BEST R&B of ALL time! Not many compare to him! Miss him... RIP
Luther @ 23! Really!
Luther below beyonce and aaliyah? I''m done with this list. - DaWyteNight
Hands down the best R&B singer ever. Had the most catchy music, the best voice, and relatable lyrics
Stay away from them for Gods blessings
BEST R&B SINGER IN THE WORLD! VOTE FOR NE-YO! HE HAS THE BEST R&B SONGS, THEY ARE VERY GENTLEMAN LIKE AND SMOOTH! ONE OF THE BEST STORY TELLER AND SONGWRITER ALIVE! - ClimaxProductonsV 2 Comments
Ray Charles is the best thing music world has seen
Chris Brown above him is an insult to music. - 445956
More then half of these artist were influence by marvin and he's not number 1 what is wrong with people these days, come on we talking about r&b
Chris Brown above Marvin Gaye? This list must be removed. - 445956
Why is he not in the top 10, I mean come on?!
You have got to be f-ing joking. Top 2 under Stevie Wonder right hereV 1 Comment
Mary J. Blige has a Four Octave Vocal Range and can hit high notes in the Baritone Range and can sing all of her songs live really splendid, Mary J. Blige has a strong voice and I think her songs fit her style and her songs work for her, and Mary J. Blige she can sing without a doubt great voice.
I think mary j blige should be number 1 because she has the grearest voice I have ever heard she can never be duplicated and I love her songs no one can make a song come alive like mary j can she is my idol.
Mary is the R&B Queen. She was the one who redefined R&B, bridging the gap between Hip Hop and Soul with a new swing of what we call contemporary R&B today.
How is she number ten
Aaliyah should be higher on this list. I love Aaliyah, It's just so sad we never got to hear more of her beautiful voice as she was taken from us, Her voice is like silk, so smooth and soft, I could kick back and Listen to Aaliyah every day, We miss You Princess Rest In Peace.x
I would just like to point out the fact that one of the most beautiful voices that has ever graced this planet is under Justin BEIBER on this list, this list is a joke...
I've always thought Aaliyah was amazing! Beyonce's cool, but I prefer Aaliyah any day. But sadley her life was taken August 25, 2001 in Marsh Harbor, The Bahamas. REST IN PARADISE AALIYAH. WE STILL LOVE YOU!
