Who Are The Top Female Singers of All Times

By Miguel Lloyd

The Queen of Hip Hop Soul, Mary J. Blige not on the list?

So RadioFacts.com released their lists of the top female singers of all time. For the most part it is hard to deny most of the people on this list. However, I’m not sure if having Rachelle Ferrell but not Mary J. Blige or Jill Scott is a complete list.

Not to mention, are we strictly talking the last 50-60 years, because any lists that does not include Ella Fitzgerald or Sarah Vaughan is lacking. Still for the most part, the list was pretty good, but there are some glaring omissions.

Here is the list

  1. Aretha Franklin
  2. Patti Labelle
  3. Chaka Khan
  4. Etta James
  5. Gladys Knight
  6. Natalie Cole
  7. Phyliss Hyman
  8. Dionne Warwick
  9. Whitney Houston
  10. Mariah Carey
  11. Rachelle Ferrell
  12. I will let this one be a mystery. You’ll have to go to the blog to see it.

What do you think. Who is missing off of this list?

This week on #LFCRadio we will be talking about  America’s “Achilles Heel”, The Bedroom Vs. The Pulpit.

With President Obama’s announcement of his support of gay marriage a couple of weeks ago, there has been an inevitable wedge drawn in the conversation within America, especially within the community of faith.

There are some within the Black Christian community who take their interpretation of the word of God in a very “literal” sense.  Homosexuality is an abomination and marriage that does not include a man and a woman is illegal in Gods eyes and immortal. Than there are those, who believe that if we are to take the Bible that literally, than in addition to homosexuals deserving to be stoned, so are the prostitute, adulterer, and for that matter disobedient children. In many circles this is considered the battle between the “social” gospel and simply…the gospel as it is written.

So how does this affect the President and why did he take the position that he did? Well, lets keep in mind that in his current position, he is a politician. The very job description of a politician is that of compromise. That job requirement doesn’t stop at their faith. On many issues it begins there, whether they want to or not. Although gay rights are clearly an issue that starts and ends with the states themselves, the President had no choice on whether he was going to take a definitive position on this matter. The coalition that voted for him in 2008, included a very vocal and powerful homosexual community, and they were not going to accept anything less.

So now you have people of faith who say that he has caved on this issue and thus they have withdrawn their support for him. There are other who say, that whether they support gay marriage or not, there are more important issues than what someone is doing in the privacy of their bedrooms that will determine their vote in November.

So where do you lean on this conversation. Do you support gay marriage? Do you not support gay marriage, but still support the President or are you one who believes that President Obamas position on this, was the defining moment for you and you will not vote for him in November?

Our guest this week will be Pastor John Young of Empowered Believers Christian Learning Center, in Hampton, VA.

This week on #LFCRadio we will be talking the current state of Black Radio.

A couple of weeks back, NYC experienced what many of us have experienced for years. The destruction of what many of us grew up knowing as black radio. Black Radio is now known in radio and more importantly, advertising circles as, “urban” and “contemporary hits radio.” It is no longer about local personalities like Donnie Simpson, The Boodah Brothers (RIP DJ Law), or DJ Red Alert. It is about finding that lucky jock that has the marketability and work ethic of a Tom Joyner to become the one voice that blacks go to for dialogue. But with that comes great responsibility. How do you entertain, but yet not be a buffoon? How do you inform but not come off boring? And then there is the music.

Well, as I was reading about NYC losing Kiss FM and thus losing Tom Joyner and Michael Baisden, it prompted me to write the blog Hey NY, You’re Losing Black Radio? We Know Your Pain! Than, I talked to the #LFCRadio team and decided its time to talk about it! Tonight we will have Cheryl Wilkerson on as our guest. Cheryl was a part of the long running Supreme Team Morning Show on WOWI-FM radio in Norfolk, VA. We are going to dig into the current state of black radio. Of course, to know where you are and where you are going, you have to know where you came from. We will dig into some of the history and evolution of the industry!
