- 1vIt's not just her voice or her beauty that puts Sade at number 1. It's the work she's put in over the years, in the studio and on the road. The stacks of gold records and classic underground tunes rock truth for themselves.
- 2vTechnically Emeli Sande is from Scotland but also technically Scotland is part of the United Kingdom so she qualifies for this list. Debut album is a slammer and you can count on her being around for a while. Bet'cha!
- 3vRocked for Soul II Soul and all by her gorgeous self!
- 4vAbsolutely brilliant talent and woman.
- 5vA different kind of soul for sure but unique don't mean disqualified.
- 6vRemember "Been Around the World?" There was and is sooooo much more to Lisa Stansfield's soul than that global number one hit.
- 7vDefinitely one of the greats of contemporary British soul.
- 8vAnother contemporary great who's paid her soulful dues.
- 9vYeah I know some are gonna say Alison Moyet is more rock than soul but some of her tunes are as soul as soul gets baby!
- 10vBad as she wanna be.
- 11vForget about the Winehouse negatives. Accentuate the powerful beautiful woman great voice positives.
- 12vHey sister soul sister Alice Russell!
- 13vFrom the spoken hip-hop of floetry to the flow of musical soul.
- 14vIf she was good enough for the Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin then she's gotta be good enough for this list.
- 15vthat's how she flow...
