Connie Francis was great too. Martha Reeves and the Vandellas even better :)

Ive been listening to Lucille Starr. Her voice was something like Edith Piaf, she sang country music in French.

Ray Charles. One of a kind. Nobody sang/sings like Ray.

Celine Dion and Whittney Houston are awesome singers as well. They are definitely on my top 10 list. Also, I can't forget Adele and Susan Boyle. There are too many to just name one....

Surprisingly I have to say Lady Ga Ga after I heard her singing classics with Tony Bennet. She missed her calling/genre in music.

I remember The Hit Parade. And those dorky Lucky Strike commercials, especially the ones with Dorothy Collins in the Lucky Strike logo peddling their smokes.
