With a name like Laura Lee I wouldn't be surprised if Superman dated her.

Barbara Lynn playing a Fender Esquire with a thumb pick.

My favorite singers are Marilyn McCoo and Dionne Warwick but (I suspect some will feel) they fall more in Pop side than Soul. They could often sing with a soulful twist -- depending on the song. I think Carla Thomas and Gladys Knight deserve to be mentioned too.
