TO THE MEMBERS OF TSMC: NOMINATIONS FOR FEMALE ARTIST (Nov. '13)

To the Members of The Soul Music Community (TSMC):

Here are the top 10 Hall of Fame nominations for Female Artist:

1. PATTI LaBELLE
2. BETTY WRIGHT
3. JANET JACKSON
4. ANITA BAKER
5. ROBERTA FLACK
6. CANDI STATON
7. MELBA MOORE
8. DENIECE WILLIAMS
9. EVELYN “Champagne” KING
10. STACY LATTISAW

Any of these singers are excellent choices for the Hall of Fame, but make no mistake, Patti LaBelle is the hands-on choice for induction. Considering that you inducted her bandmate, Nona Hendryx, for her production work, it would make perfect sense to induct the one woman who is responsible for opening the door for her. When you also consider Ms. LaBelle’s 50 YEARS in Soul Music, it would be a shame if all of you members choose to ignore her yet again. Members, do the right thing and nominate Ms. LaBelle already. You’re embarrassing yourselves the more you keep ignoring her.

@jogamble okay I appreciate that you like 6 of my 10 selections, but the ones you rejected also count as "the real deal". How can you reject Anita Baker, considering that she helped forged a new chapter for Soul music in the 80s at a time when Black music seemed to be drifting away from what Soul music great. And as for Janet Jackson, Evelyn King & Stacy Lattisaw, you can't be unfairly biased by only favoring artists from Soul music's golden age (1965-1975) over everything else. Just because the above 3 singers found their success outside of that golden age doesn't mean that they didn't make significant contributions to Soul music. It's time for the members that think like that to be more open-minded to the ENTIRE history of Soul music because too many of them are too damn biased and closed-minded when they're voting for new inductees… and YOU are one of them!!
