Best Vocalists of the 80's,90's,00's and Beyond Part 3

Updated on December 26, 2011

ANNNNNDDDD HERE IT IS! Part 3 of my series Best Vocalists of the 80's,90's,00's and Beyond. Now, yes this list does contain most of my personal favorites but some I have discovered over time as well. Maybe you'll be surprised to find some artists you have never heard of and if that is the case, I will be glad to introduce you to some truly talented singers. On with the list I say!


11. Adele

Part of the British Invasion, Adele is a true testament that music has not yet died. A singer/songwriter from North London, England, she reached international stardom with her second album 21. If you haven't yet heard her first album 19, it's just as good. The soulful quality of her voice is what draws you in, her lyrics make you stay. She's the kind of artist that can invoke so many different emotions with her voice, something that I think has been missing from music in a few years. I can't wait until she comes out with more! Rumor has it, that her next album might consist of country music. Not too far off from what she does now, all I know is that I will be purchasing that album as well.

12. Deborah Cox

OK to tell you the truth, I personally haven't heard a lot of music from this particular artist but from what I have heard, She's amazing. Her most famous song Nobody's supposed to be here, held the record for longest running number one single on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles and Tracks, for nearly eight years. That is amazing! She's also had much success in the dance music circuit. She was recently featured in a track by DJ's Axwell, Steve Angello, Sebastian Ingrosso and Laidback Luke called Leave the world behind,which has done amazing on the charts. It's one of my Faves and currently can be found on my Ipod.

Michael Bubl

13. Michael Bublé

With the vocal styling of Frank Sinatra, this Canadian crooner will leave the ladies swooning! Micheal Bublé originally wanted to be a Hockey player. Can you imagine such a charming voice as his playing hockey? I sure can't!. One of my personal favorite songs off his fourth album, Crazy Love, has to be the internationally known Haven't Met You Yet, which he wrote for his then girlfriend, actress Emily Blunt. I've seen some clips of him in concert and on top of being a great vocalist, he is an engaging performer, letting fans up on stage to sing with him.

Toni Braxton

14. Toni Braxton

Toni Braxton originally started out as part of The Braxton's, a group she formed with her younger sisters. She was discovered one day while pumping gas. She then went on to do many recognizable songs such as Unbreak My Heart. She is currently part of the reality show Braxton Family Values where they film the families daily life. Toni is a contralto and has sold 60 million records world wide. Unlike some of her contemporary's, Toni has not let her vocal prowess dwindle with age as evidenced by the clip below.

Amy Whinehouse             RIP

15. Amy Whinehouse

Gone to soon, the late and great Amy Whinehouse was a true soul singer from a very young age. Plagued by addiction, her personal life sometimes over shadowed her genius. She had six Grammy nominations and five wins for her second album Back to Black. Another great song by her was a song she did with Mark Ronson, Valerie, which I personally think has been made even more popular due to it being sung on the television show, Glee.

Who's your fave?

      I say Adele, but it's hard not to want to vote for the others as well.

      I couldn't vote in the poll because I am big fans of Adele, Amy Winehouse, Toni Braxton, and Michael Buble! It's hard to decide!

      Buble and Adele have great voices. Winehouse had something great, sad to see her lose it to drugs and other. Don't know the other two.
