Best R&B Singer 

Conya Doss

Lots of R&B artists claim to work that old-soul vibe. Conya Doss -- who names Marvin Gaye, Lauryn Hill, and Nina Simone as influences -- actually does. Her warm voice glides effortlessly over the self-penned songs, most of which detail busted relationships and the life lessons she's picked up when picking up the pieces. Like India.Arie, Doss doesn't rely on samples, flashy remixes, or T.I. for support. Acoustic guitars and keyboards guide her to a place where soul music nods to its jazz and blues roots. Doss is more concerned with setting a mood (and then expanding on it for four or five minutes) than getting you on the dance floor. It's late-night baby-making music at its most organic.
