Best Soul Singers--Male

In no particular order, some with unmistakeable evidence of their genius:


Howard Hewitt (Say Amen)
Luthor Vandross
Marvin Gaye
Sam Cooke (You Send Me)
Smokey Robinson
Darryl Hall (Sara Smile)
Michael Jackson (She's Out of My Life)
Prince (Adore)
the lead singer of Heatwave (Always and Forever)

Come on, guys, help me out. There's gotta be a hundred guys I've left out.

I'd just like to add G.C. Cameron to this list. If you recognize him from anything it'd be the original version of "It's So Hard To Say Goodbye to Yesterday" from Cooley High. But before Phillip Wynne, he was the original lead of the Spinners (It's A Shame) and the guy had an amazing voice that Motown dropped the ball with several times.

You're kidding about those DeBarges right?

My favorite soul singers have been listed but my all time favorite has not:

K-Ci Hailey....I wish I could sing like that.
