    I would say Mary J. Blige. I have all her albums even many where hard to get. I had to buy them on amazon, as in Czech few years ago it was even hard to hear about Mary J.

    I love her lyrics-every song is a story. She is not probably the best singer in a world, but to me? She is a queen of R'n'B.

      I do not care if Mary is very bad singer. There are much worst in a world. I like her for her very bad voice, which always makes me happy. lol

    My favorite current day R&B singer is Brian McKnight. If you have never seen this guy perform live you are really missing out. Unbelievable range and since I'm a fan of words, his love songs have great substance.

    Al Green and Otis Redding are both fantastic in their own right.

    But the list wouldn't be complete without Sam Cooke.

    Hi well, it is hard to say,
    so many people to choose from it depends...
    I'm really into Alicia Keys as of lately, there are some people I adore and they put out great quality stuff, but some of their songs bore me....

    but I am into her and Toni Braxton, I've loved her forever, thats my girl and Vanessa Williams...yep these are my gals...

    then Beyonce, she knows me, lol, seems like things she coulda been going through or her friends where I think about them and feel that way...like she was reading my mind.
