Top 10 Singers for Slow Paced Vocals

Slow paced vocals? It may sound new. I don't know if it's a good word. But anyway what I meant from slow paced vocals is these singers have good vocals when they sing songs slowly. Unlike rappers or screamers. Now some of these singers may scream or sing in another type of vocals but they can also sing in slow pace.

So I have tried my best to make this list. Please feel free to add your favorite slow paced vocal singers. Vote if you like, comment if you have anything to say.
