    Who is currently the best white male vocalist? I am not being racist by excluding the blacks guys because that is way too easy. All of them sing: Jason Derulo, Chris Brown, Aykanh (or however you spell his name). That is there thing. White Pop stars for like two decades now have been mostly getting by on image and hype, and not talent.

    Well, you have Justin Bieber. He can sing. And then you have the kids from One Direction. But then I stumble upon this song

    I was so surprised the vocalist is a pasty white boy from down under

    Back in the 80s you had George Michael, Richard Marx, Kenny Loggins, Michael Bolton who could give MJ, and Prince a run for their money. Then a huge drop-off.

    Somebody you've never heard of. The music industry isn't a meritocracy. It's about marketability.

    Palp is all about journey. He won't stop believing that they'll be coming out with a new album.

    He doesnt have a great voice. His songs are catchy for the genre he does, but his vocal range is nothing of note. I am talking about guys who can lay down the wood with just their voice.
