Queen Bee of the R&B Arena
When it comes to making music, there are many approaches that have been taken. There are those who just want to sing, naturally have the vocal dexterity to hang with it and so they create beautiful music that the world just goes crazy for. And then again, you’ll find some who think they’ve got skills but, sadly the masses disagrees and we all know that the ‘wannabes’ are plentiful. However, some may think they’ve stumbled upon a formula that is bound to grab the world’s attention but, often they can’t quite hit the mark. In fact, many who claim to have what it takes are simply clueless as to what the public really wants.
So, if one were ever looking for that true representative of a music genre and in this instance, SOUL (R&B) then there isn’t really a debate as to who is fitting to wear that crown as far as the females are concerned. No question, there’s only one true Diva that totally represents to the fullest on all counts and she goes by the name of Beyoncé Knowles. Ok, some may argue that ladies like Mary J Blige, Alicia Keys or even Mariah Carey are strong contenders but, for me, Beyonce is the prototype that fully expresses all the essential qualities that’s required from a Diva: excellent vocal prowess; naturally ripened beauty; creative artistic ability; high intelligence and a physique that cat-walk models would pay millions of pounds to get (and men would pay millions of pounds to be next to).
Beyoncé, the world’s current best loved female artist, endorsed her ‘Grande Diva status’ when she made history AGAIN at the recent Grammy Awards becoming the female to WIN the most Grammys EVER..!! See, that’s what I’m talking about… the last Diva to come close to the record was none other than Lauryn Hill who, had TEN nominations and bagged FIVE Awards with her awe-inspiring set ‘The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill back in 1999.
