What were that singers that influenced you?

For all you singers out there, who has started you singing? It could be a family member, favorite singers growing up, a musician that made a huge impact on your life. For me:

Growing up:

1) My father ( He won my mother over when he sang in high school and he always used to plug the mike into the stereo abd sang when I was very young back in the early 80's. Sadly, he passed away in 2003).

2) Teena Marie (Ever heard of Cassanova Brown and Yes Indeed...and the rest, love it!)

3) Prince (as a singer and musician).

4) The Jacksons (mainly Michael)

5) Whitney Houston (her voice makes me cry)
