Let’s face it…
The turn of the century has unfortunately been accompanied by an under-appreciation of true vocalists. Veritably, it has been clear to see that as production technology has increased its ability, inversely, quality vocal performances have decreased.
Turn on the radio today and you will be assaulted by an abundance of autotune, so much so one may question if he/she is listening to real people or The Transformers…

However, there are a select few who have remained faithful to vocal integrity and, in turn, have been awarded the title ‘Vocal Bible’. The title, a pedestal of sorts, implies that a vocalist has become the standard by which others do or should follow. Often attributed to the Whitney Houstons, Barbra Streisands, and Mariah Careys of music history, these ladies have undeniably defined an era’s singing style that few could contest.
This generation, on the other hand (presumably due to the dearth of deserving divas), has seen more debate (and loose usage) regarding such titling. So, we leave it to you – That Grape Juice Faithful – to tell us:
Considering only artists who are under 40, who is this generation’s VB?
TIDBIT: Is there a male singer under 40 deserving of ‘Vocal Bible’ titling for males?
