    Artist Similar To Etta James? I’ve just gave Etta James Greatest Hits CD a listen to and thoroughly enjoyed it, are they any similar artists or artists from the same time?

    Thanks in advance

      I love Etta James! If you really enjoyed her I highly recommend you check out singer Bettye LaVette. Shes a soul and blues singer that started back in the early 60s and she has recently had a huge resurgence!

      Billie Holiday

      Patti LaBelle

      Aretha Franklin

    I Need Songs Just Like GOT RHYTHM REMIX – LENA HORNE Feat. Q-TIP? A oldie mixed with hip hop. Kind of similar to Daydreamin by lupe fiasco. But more like what Qtip did.

    • Curator says:

      Tip’s album Amplified had a bunch of songs like that. Look up “vibrant thing” . Of course his solo career will never be as sweet as his groups leaders of new school or tribe

    • Curator says:

      Black women have not been as brainwashed to look for a more Euro appearance in our men..we have grown up around men of various shades and find them to be attractive…think of some of the first matinee idols like Sidney Poitierr..dark whereas the first black women on screen identified to be attractive were ppl like Lena Horne..also the famous quadroons coveted by white men during and after slavery times were also coveted by our blk men so they have had that light skin business foisted on them for centuries…we are off the plantation but the plantation won’t get off of us.
