NOMINATIONS FOR CONTEMPORARY (March 2014)
To the registered users of SoulMusic.com

It took a few extra days, but finally, here are the top 10 Hall of Fame nominations for Contemporary Soul Music Artist/Group of Duo:

1. R. KELLY
2. MARY J. BLIGE
3. FAITH EVANS
4. BRIAN McKNIGHT
5. EN VOGUE
6. ERYKAH BADU
7. DONELL JONES
8. D’ANGELO
9. JOHN LEGEND
10. ANGIE STONE

Members, I learned a very valuable lesson from this category:
If you can’t beat them, join them!!

Despite several months of campaigning for my previous lists of R&B artists to get nominated, it was clear that the members were favoring artists that were part of the Neo-Soul format (despite the fact that many of those same artists rejected having that label tagged onto their work).

Therefore, I decided to list the artists who recorded consistently during the golden age of Neo-Soul, along with other R&B artists who were either contemporaries or early influences of the Neo-Soul generation. I’ve limited this revamped list to just 10 artists, but knowing the way some of these members love to vote, I might have to expand this list in the upcoming months.

Members, I hope this newly upgraded list helps out in your voting. If I’m missing some of your favorite Contemporary artists, please let me know.
