This is a continuation of my Best Vocalists of the 80's, 90's, 00's and Beyond Part1 hub . These artists aren't in any particular order. So lets continue on!

6. Mary J Blige.

Brian McKnight is a singer/songwriter/arranger/producer. He also plays nine instruments. His most successful album to date is Back at One, which sold over 3 million albums. In recent years he has become a radio personality. a talk show host and in 07, made is Broadway debut in the show Chicago.


8. Tamia

Tamia Hill, better known as Tamia, is a multiple Grammy award winning artist. With Five albums under her belt and a new one announced for 2011, I don't see this underestimated yet truly talented artist slowing down.

9. Joss Stone

Jocelyn Eve Stoker rose to stardom in 2003 with her multi-platinum selling albumThe Soul Sessions. She has a wide vocal range which has been classified as both Contralto and Mezzo-Soprano by reviewers. A trade mark of her's is the soulful quality of her voice and her barefoot performances.

10. Norah Jones

She began singing in church choirs and and took piano lessons at an early age. She is influenced by Billie Holiday and has an affinity for Jazz music.

      I just wrote a Hub about Mary J. Blige's new single "25/8". You should check it out. I love her. I am such a big fan of hers. I'm kind of anticipating her next album, and kind of skeptical about it. I didn't really care for her last delivery, but she's still the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul. She has such an amazing catalog!

      Joss Stone is a part of the league of female British artists that I have come to love over the last 10 years!

      This was a great hub. Voted up. And I like the idea. What about Adele and Amy Winehouse? They are in the same vein of the new British Invasion, but I like their voices and the soulful feelings they interpret with them.
