Agreed, anyone of any race has the potential to sing soul. But there's a huge difference between mimicking "the great ones" and bringing your own form of "stank" to put on the genre. One shouldn't be getting attention just for being non-black and singing soul music.

Raphael Saadiq.

I don't care about an artist's skin colour. There are artists who I consider to be soul singers but I won't even go there because I'm not trying to be stoned.

Clap @ both artists.

Bonnie Raitt embarrassed the hell out of everybody who sang after her at the Grammy's a year or 2 ago.

I always put him in the neo soul category along with Meshelle N'dgeochello, Erika, Angie Stone the likes.
 
Please share you artist, no stoning from me.

Man, have y'all heard my girl Gretchen Parlato?

There are a few artists that rock it on the soul tip.

Lisa Stansfield, Teena Marie (RIP), Joss Stone, Janis Joplin, Christina Aguilera...there's a jazz artist that is blonde and blue eyed that sings pretty decently and I am still trying to find her song because I can't remember the name.

Still they are rare.
