Welcome one and all to my Best Vocalists of the 80',90's,00's and Beyond series Part 6. If you haven't seen the other AMAZING vocalists of past lists follow these links. Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, and Part 5. The list so far has had R&b singers, Gospel Singers, Soul Singers,and Latin Singers. I want to make these lists as culturally diverse as possible because honestly these are extraordinary talents that deserve the exposure. I happen to listen to music in different languages, none of which I speak, except for spanish, but I believe Music is universal and it's not always the language in which it is sung but the emotion behind the voice that counts.

On with the list!

26. Beyoncé

Who doesn't know Beyoncé? One third of the famous all girl group Destiny's child, She rose to fame as the central figure of the group. Not only is she a singer/songwriter but an amazing vocalist, trained in Opera. She's considered the hardest working woman in show biz. She is amazing to watch on stage, as she dances and sings with out a hitch. She has also been in a few films, her most famous being Dream Girls alongside Oscar winner and fellow vocalist, Jennifer Hudson. She married rapper Jay-Z and is now expecting her first child.

Jojo!! For a kid to be that talented at 13 is crazy and amazing in my opinion. The first time I heard her live, was on MTV during it's TRL days. She was singing "Get Out(Leave)" and I couldn't help thinking wow! Such a mature voice for someone her age. She could put so many older singers to shame! In recent years, she's had a falling out with her record label but that seems to have blown over and now she's part of Interscope. She's in the process of making finishing touches to her third album. Jojo is also an actress and has been part of a few films and made guest appearances on several television shows.

This Mexican crooners last name is famous. He is a legacy in the Latin music world.With millions of albums sold world wide and many public romances, he's staple in any Spanish household. He did a theme song with Beyoncé for a Spanish soap opera called Gitana. I heard him live in concert with Marc Anthony and WOW What a voice!

Laura Pausini

Let me tell you something about this artist right here. She can do no wrong. Not only is she an amazing vocalist but an exceptional songwriter. Every song I've ever heard from her is pure perfection. This Italian singer is loved in Latin America and Europe, selling out concerts with her diverse arsenal of music. She speaks Spanish, English and Italian.

Natalia Jimenez

As front woman of the Spanish group La 5a Estacion (the fifth station), Natalia Jimenez is a force to be reckoned with. Her powerhouse vocals always give me chills! La 5a Estacion has won Latin Grammy's as well as collaborated with singers like Marc Anthony and Ricky Martin.

I personally love Phil Collins, people don't always acknowledge how soulful his voice is. Daryl Hall from Hall and Oates is another favorite as well. That's all I got for now.

There are always vocalists to be acknowledged, so yea I guess so.. Anybody in particular you would like to see on the list? I'm very open to suggestion.

I think that you have great diversity in your picks. I last heard Jojo on Timbaland's album. I was wondering what happened to her. I've enjoyed your series.

I agree about B and Jojo, I'm pretty sick of them myself but I i think they deserve a spot on the list. I hope you enjoy the other artists on the list, I certainly have!

The only album from Beyonce that I can listen without skipping a song is B'Day. She's a great singer and an amazing performer, but I really wish that she would give credit to where it's due when it comes to her elements in her performances and music videos. Many people praise this stuff like it's brand new. I mean, to me, she really isn't all that, even though she now has pop icon status, which I can respect. There was a time when I really really liked her and that was from the Destiny's Child era until mid-way during the B'Day era. If you ask me, she's overrated, but at the same time, I hope that giving birth and starting motherhood will give her a chance to give birth to some material that's not a cliche for her.

I never really cared for JoJo. When she came out, she was a part of the teenybopper movement. I haven't cared for that kind of music since... I was a teenybopper. lmao!

These other people on this list I want to look into. I have never heard of them.
