Ok. Well this is the second time I'm going to try to do this. I just spent about 2 hours doing this same entry, but it got erased. So I'm going to give you just a very short version:
June is Nation Black Music Month. In honor of Black Music Month, I'm going to countdwn my top five favorite artists of all time. I'm going to start this off a little different with number 4. The one artist who truly speaks to my soul.
Key Songs: 1.Smooth Operator 2.Your Love Is King 3.Love Is Stronger Than Pride 4.No Ordinary Love 5.The Sweetest Taboo
5. Diana Ross
Key Songs: (The Supremes); 1. You Keep Me Hangin On 2. Baby Love 3. Love Is Like An Itching In My Heart 4. Where Did Our Love Go

I put both Prince and Stevie at 1 because in my opinion, they are both equally as gifted and talented. I still consider Prince as The Greatest Artist of All Time and forever will, but in my opinion Stevie had the best songs of all time! I will explain why they are my top 5 later. Stay on the lookout.
