Male Soloists (82 Artists) – 6 of 23 Genres

Photo credit: stevie wonder – fineartamerica

Have you looked at posts from vocal.media? One from Annie Kapur from two years ago gives her opinion about the top ten male singers. She says “Male vocalists are abundant, especially in the era of music I am most interested in (the 1950s and 60s). But there are some that stand out as being the best in their field. I understand that we may not agree entirely on this list, but know that I have based this off my own personal opinion. She goes on saying the best vocalists in my opinion are the ones who have range, style, and suave.” Her top ten are: Frank Sinatra (10), Bobby Vee (9), Dion DiMucci (8), George Harrison (8), Prince (6), Buddy Holly (5), Sam Cooke (4), Michael Jackson (3), Elvis Presley (2) and Bob Dylan (1). Each of these singer’s bios are included within this blog.

Thomas Jefferson Edwards (October 15, 1922 – October 23, 1969) was an American singer and songwriter. His most successful record was the multi-million-selling song “It’s All in the Game”, (https://youtu.be/Y_DWxUb0vjs) (RQ 10) becoming the first African-American to reach No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. He sang his hit song on The Ed Sullivan Show, on September 14, 1958. The song was composed by then-future U.S. Vice-President Charles G. Dawes in 1911 as “Melody in A Major” with lyrics written in 1951 by Carl Sigman. Edwards originally recorded and charted the song in 1951, but it climbed to only no. 18. The better-known 1958 version was on the same record label (MGM) and was backed by the same orchestra leader (Leroy Holmes), but with a different arrangement more suited to the rock and roll-influenced style of the time. As well as topping the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, the song also got to number one on the R&B chart and the UK Singles Chart. The single sold over 3.5 million copies globally, earning gold discstatus. The gold disc was presented in November 1958. His second biggest hit was his 1959 re-recording of “Please, Mr. Sun” (written by Ramon Martin Getzov and Sid Frank), which reached No. 11. Another of Edwards’ hits was “Love Is All We Need” which reached No. 15 on the Billboard Hot 100.
