Lisa Stanfield had another song that was mildly popular in the early 90s which I can't remember at the moment. But by far, "Been Around the World" was THE song for her.

Amy Winehouse lived enough hell to claim the title "soul singer".  She didn't even have to try.

While these guys openly state they are influenced by the soul singers in America, they do a good job.  Alex Clare's Damn Your Eyes is boss. 
 
But there will NEVER EVER be another Sam Cooke. . .

I like her music but I don't consider her  a soul singer.

She also had an awesome voice...soulful with just the right amount of raspiness. So mad she couldn't get her ish together. :(

Her version of Valerie and Eff Me Pumps are some of my favorites.

I don't know if she's been mentioned, but Joss Stone has a lot of soul.

Amy Winhouse
Joss Stone
Emily King (IMO)
Teena Marie
Adele
Justin Nozuka
Carly Simon
I kind of measure soul from live performances (how the song is performed outside of the studio)
