White Girls with Black Voices
Some of you may be looking at this list, scratching your head right now, but let me explain. Yes JoJo did sing “Leave Get Out,” no it wasn’t very soulful at all and yes she still deserves to be on this list. While her first single was oh so pop, the rest of her self-titled debut album featured songs that exhibited a bit more of her range, talent and yes…soul. She covered SWV’s Weak with surprising strength. Plus she’s still young. As she grows, her voice will only get stronger.
