Mista Jaycee's List of the Slept On Divas!

Ok, first thanks to all the of those cool folks who commented on Mista Jaycee's list of DIVAS!

The fun part was that folks added names that they thought I missed. Etta James got mentioned. Phyllis Hyman got mentioned not to mention a few others. I didn't get the effect I desired though and that's my fault. Mary J. Bee and Alicia are not DIVAS.....Yet! Although they may be some day. Just being Hot for a few years does not a DIVA make.

But now I decided instead of just writing another post to actually post some music. So to your right I have compiled a good list of some of the most slepted on DIVAS. Cheryl Lynn, Angela Bofill, just to name a few.
Now to your nuetral corners. No biting, rabbit punches, or hitting below the belt. I'm talking to you RIPPa and Miss Ann Brock from The Old Black Church. I'm keeping an eye on you to. 8-)
BE Prayerful! BE Mindful! BE Careful!

What does Mista Jaycee?

Lots of things. An original sounding voice. Great vocal talent. This includes vocal acrobatics but is not limited to that. Range. Lyrical interpretation.

Well if that's what a diva makes...I'm adding Minnie Ripperton to the list. She killed the whistle register.

I put Minnie on the list for you to listen to. But how bout Rachelle Ferrell? She can play her butt off and she goes above the whistle range. She used to hit notes that irritated animals. Her parents yelled for her to stop.
Mariah Carey is up there too.

Man, Y'all fun. Wait till I do the Brothers.

Thank you for including Phyllis in this list. She's one of my personal favorites, but I'm never bias against any classic voices!

Now why I gotta be the resident hater?

But since you said that... I have to say that Phyliss Hyman is THE most slept on Diva. Not just because of her talent. But because of her name. When I was younger, whenever I would hear her name, all I would ever think of was a vagina in a sexual inuendo kinda way.
