I'm glad people mentioned Imogen Heap - I don't care for the hide seek song but the moment I said it song is one of my absolute favorites.

Lead singer from the Corrs - Caroline?

Sarah Vaughan - love the Lola song but still need to check out more of her work.

Vanessa van Hemert - singer from 4 Strings a while back.

Lee, Branch, Jones, and Turner are all good too.

The best female artist of our time!

Madonna nominated for Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

1 hour, 18 minutes ago

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Madonna and disco queen Donna Summer are among nine acts nominated for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as the hall embraces more musical genres.

Other nominees include rock singer John Mellencamp, Canadian poet-singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen, 1960s English band The Dave Clark Five and instrumental rock band The Ventures.

Also nominated are New York-based funk group Chic, rap pioneer Afrika Bambaataa and hip-hop group The Beastie Boys, reflecting the Hall of Fame's willingness to accept a diversity of genres.

Five-hundred music industry professionals will choose five of the nominees to be inducted at a ceremony at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel next March.

Last year, rap group Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five were the first hip-hop artists to be inducted.

Chic, the Dave Clark Five and Mellencamp have been nominated previously.

Artists become eligible for Hall of Fame induction 25 years after the release of their first record and are represented at a permanent exhibition at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame museum in Cleveland, Ohio.

Madonna, 49, made her debut in 1982 and her first album "Madonna" included hits such as "Holiday," "Borderline" and "Lucky Star" which helped her become one of the best-selling pop artists, with more then 200 million albums sold worldwide.

It will be a travesty if she isn't one of the '5' inducted.

Christina Aguilera is easily the most talented vocalist in pop music today. She has more range and power than practically all of her contemporaries.

Excellent voice but I hate when she "showboats" it.

Agreed. But if you had a voice like that, you'd be tempted to showboat too. She's still young. There's time for her to settle down.

Speaking of great female voices, Alison Krauss has already been mentioned in this thread, but I've never heard her sound better than she does on her new collaboration with Robert Plant - I never would've imagined it, but their voices fit together perfectly, and they do some of the best male/female harmonizing I've ever heard.

That would be Andrea Corr, who came out with a solo album, Ten Feet High, recently. Unfortunately, it's a forgettable effort.
