Thanks Anna! I just LOVE black gospel singers. They sing like they are REALLY singing from their hearts and souls! They have that beautiful quality of voice that you just don't seem to find in white people. It seems somehow to bring an extra quality of truthful emotion to Christian music. I suppose that black races of people throughout the ages have suffered so terribly, that their walk with God is a truly emotional one. They have had to rely on him to bring them through some unbearable times, that has made their faith stronger and it shows in their music.

I agree with the list but let's not forget Elvis. He should be the eleventh!

Anna, thanks for posting. I think any list would be remiss if it didn't include Rev. James Cleveland and/or the Mississippi Mass Choir.

Dionne Warwick was my absolute favoutite singer when I was in my late teens, she has a terrific voice now, but it's not quite the same - or is it me having changed over the years? Who knows.
