    List a known or not so well known female vocalist which you think does it good, great or best.
    Past, Present, or even Future.

    Rate them on a scale of 1 - 20
    (1 being good, 20 being best)


    Will start off with a rare one that many may not be familiar with, just to treat the fam.

    "Best" and "Art" don't belong in the same sentence. Art is subjective and every Artist's rendering is a unique expression.. and it's that uniqueness that makes the act of comparison a moot enterprise. #justsaying..

    context is everything.
