Who are some singers, past & present, who have their own distinct sound?
Jimi Hendrix! I know it's Jimi when I hear that electric guitar and then hear that great voice.
I think Marvin Gaye has a unique sound along with John Lennon, Led Zeppelin, Janis Joplin, Josh Groban, Michael Jackson, Elton John, Seal, Bob Dylan, Muse, Tina Turner and Cher. All great artist and in their own way.
Are there any female pop artist today who don't make songs that are risky? And why do most women those songs?
You're just choosing out of a small group. There is plenty of female pop singers that aren't "risque". Like Taylor Swift for example, even though her music is terrible and every song is the same. It's definitely not risque
who else thinks Beyonce is a better artist than Whitney Houston and Janet Jackson?
I don't like any of them. But, Beyonce is very talented. They all are very talented. Well, except Janet Jackson. She really only has talent in the dancing arena. Between Beyonce and Whitney, I guess I'd have to say Beyonce. She's been way more dependable as an artist.
Aretha's hit from 1968, "The House that Jack Built" seems like it would be challenging. Here it is, along with another of her hits, "The Weight". These are both "hard-driving" soul songs. If you're interested in a big, pop-style song, the second link is Aretha's version of "I Dreamed a Dream", again very challenging.
how does whitney houston look on the cover on her debut album?
She looks happy and relaxed. Okay, Whitney has a prettier voice than Aretha Franklin. But Aretha Franklin can SING, and I think she sings better than Whitney. If you notice no one hardly ever tries to cover Aretha's songs, because they just can't put the Soul that she has into them. When Aretha sings a song, she owns it.
The best R&B female singer, artist and diva in the entire world
honors have to go to the grand lady herself Aretha Franklin.
There has not been any one even close to her with that voice of hers. The other singers mentioned are very good singers
and have a lot of talent but can't compete with Aretha.
She can push the roof off of any house and/or church for
that matter with that talented voice of hers.
Aretha is, and always be the Queen of Soul. Whitney had an amazing voice until she killed it with drugs. Pre-drug Whitney was probably as good as Aretha, but present Whitney? No way. So in the present, Aretha is the better singer. But if Whitney gets her act together and gets her voice back to how it used to be, then they may be about even - but Aretha will always be legendary.
who is the best singer whitney houston or aretha franklin?
i think whitney houston has a better voice...but she wasted it...she could have been such a huge star...instead she is known for her drug addictions and getting beat up by her husband, bobby brown....i would have to go with aretha franklin for having a better career, more hits, more consistant
who do you think aged better and has a better head voice: whitney houston or aretha franklin?
Aged better? Whitney
Has a better voice? Always has been and always will be Aretha.
The only reason Whitney sounds like she has a better voice is because of song choice. She does involve some POP into her music so its easier to see why people would think her voice is better. Dont get me wrong, I think she has a good voice. But the queen is Aretha!
whitney houston vs aretha franklin who do you think is the better singer......?
I totally agree with you! Whitney at her prime would shit on Aretha.
People think that Aretha is better because she has a lot of soul, but Whitney's vocals are too powerful imo
Look at How she litterally KILL Aretha's song "natural woman", A LOT BETTER than Aretha's version
whitney houston vs aretha franklin who do u think has a more powerful voice?
I say Whitney. But they both have powerful singing voices. You're talking about two different types of vocalists within the same music genre. That's like comparing Beyonce to Patti LaBelle. Aretha is a vocalist with traditional gospel and R&B background, with a "raspy" voice so how she sings and approches a song is going to be different than Whitney. Who grew up listening to the traditional music of Aretha but singins very crisp and clear is a R&B/Pop vocalists. Can Aretha pull off a Whitney song? Maybe but she will make it her own style. Can Whitney sing an Aretha song? Absolutely but it will "sound like Whitney song".
Why does Dolly Parton write way more songs than Aretha Franklin and Whitney Houston put together?
How the hell should we know how their productivity works?
There are singers that don't write their own songs at all and they come out with hits and "classics."
There are singers that write all their own songs and they never go anywhere in their career.
But no one is in Dolly's/Aretha's/Whitney's head, so we have no way of knowing why one writes more than others.
