Too many and all too good for one to be judged the best IMHO.
Chaka Khan would, in my humble opinion, be up there with the greats

Yay! Muchisimo de acuerdo!
Everytime I've thought of suggesting a name, someone jumps in and beats me to it. Been listening to Chaka/Rufus's Stop on By all week.
And she's playing O2 soon I hear.
The first gospel LP I ever owned was a second-hand copy of Mahalia recorded live at the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival. The last track of the first side made the back of my neck tingle, The Lord's Prayer. You can almost sense the awestruck audience doing their best not to drop pins!

Hugh, their version of Stop On By is good, but have you heard the Vicki Anderson & Bobby Byrd version of it? This is good too.

Yeah just checked it, Vicki really belts it out, a little OTT at times perhaps. Just realised Chaka was only 21 when she did that first Rufus album. She was on Jonathan Ross the other night and I came in halfway and didn't recognise her! Anyway may be going to see her at O2 on 22nd.
