Find out more about the greatest 20th Century Singers, including Adele, The Weeknd, Fetty Wap, Michael Jackson and Justin Bieber

20th Century Singers
The music industry would have been a miser place had it not been for the 20th century musical giants who reaffirmed glory and magnificence of music through their notes, lyrics and melody. Imagine pop music without the King of Pop or the God of Music, Michael Jackson! Would ‘Beatles’ have the same recognition and iconic status that it holds today had it not been for John Lennon or Paul McCartney? The band revolutionized the music industry in just six years so much so that even six hundred years later, people would glorify their contribution to music. When Elvis Presley’s single, ‘Heartbreak Hotel’ played, every single heart yearned for more Presley’s magic? Probably that was the charm that ‘The King’ exuded. He turned the world on to rhythm and blues which they called rock and roll and had it in him to make everyone sit up and notice what he had to offer. The genre of Blues wouldn’t have been so had it not been for the greatest and legendary blues musician and singer, BB King. And these are just a handful for the long list of some extensively talented singers that the world was blessed with in the past century. Know more about the famous singers of the 20th century.
