Male Soloists – 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.
