Female singers down through the years have provided us with some of the most inspirational songs of all time. Most of these women got their start in the church where they perfected their vocal abilities and learned what it really meant to sing from the soul!

As we continue to celebrate Black Music Month on WBLK, today we would like to know your choice for the most gifted of all African American female singers. We have included 10 women as thought starters and you are more than welcome to include your own as well.
