Do You Agree These Are the 4 Best Black Singers of All Time?!

Michael Jackson - Whitney Houston

*The whole world agrees with the fact that the Black community has brought forth a diverse range of talents in a plethora of fields. They’ve thrived in fashion, acting, food, philanthropy, art, sports and a lot more.

One field where Black folks seem to rise the highest is music. Black singers have elevated to positions that cannot be matched by anyone in the future and we all know the legends we’re talking about.

With this post, we hope to gather as many readers as possible and celebrate these legends while thanking them once again for the legacy they’ve left behind for the ages. So without further ado, lets moonwalk onto the singer who didn’t care if you were “Black or White.”

1.    Michael Jackson

The world was blessed with Michael Joseph Jackson in the late August of 1958. He was and is one of the greatest songwriters, singers, and dancers to date. Not only did he illuminate the world with his remarkable performances but he also donated a total of $500,000,000 in charity. He still holds the throne as the King of Pop and this title was given to him by Elizabeth Taylor will live on for the centuries to come.

2.    Whitney Houston

Born in the early August of 1963, Whitney Houston was a producer, an actress, and an American singer. In 2009, she even secured a Guinness World Record for the most awarded act of all time. We have no doubt that this decision would have been quite easy. This is because she is probably one of the best selling female pop artists of all time with about 200 million records purchased all around the globe.

3.    Aretha Franklin

Most millennials wouldn’t know about her because she was a famous singer before their time. We’ve really missed out as she was a largely celebrated pianist and songwriter but our parents definitely loved her. She had begun her career as a child singing gospel for the Detroit Bethel Baptist Church where her father was the minister.

4.    Beyonce

Where the single ladies at? Not only them but probably the whole world has heard at least one of her songs. Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter had started her career in the R&B girl group Destiny’s Child. Even then, she had been able to secure places in the top charts with songs like “Survivor” and “Say My Name”. However, when she left the group for a solo career, she was on the lookout for way more than just top charts. Now, she is known as Queen B for this very reason.

Well there you have it, folks. This ends the list of the top 4 of all time. It breaks our heart to have missed out on Tina Turner, Luther Vandross, Gladys Knight, Teddy Pendergrass, Rihanna and so many more. But we all know that even a 500-page book wouldn’t be able to cover the great singers that have emerged from the Black Community!

  1. Well, I think you need two lists with still only four to choose: Singers and Performers. Singers: MJ, Whitney, Aretha, and Mariah. Entertainers: MJ and Beyonce will top the list of four. Luther and Chaka can blow as well!
