    Good question. I'll think harder about it but the first one that comes to my mind is Billy Joel when he made "Just the Way You Are", which a lot of people I know thought was Stevie Wonder. Thank goodness, he didn't sing all of his songs in that particular manner because i like him but wouldn't if I thought he was trying to riff off of Stevie.

    People have been talking for over 30 years about the similarity of Teddy P's voice to
    that of Marvin Jr though most folks could tell them apart. I could never mistake any of the others for either. Booty has a big voice, a heavy growl but a very limited range and I
    never thought David sounded anything like Teddy who he replaced in the Bluenotes. Miles's mid-range croon is warm as Teddy's but that's where it ends to my ears. In truth
    I think the only places I might hear four individual singers who sound exactly alike is
    overseas, maybe. In China, India or Japan. A friend of mine's daughter listens to a lot
    of k pop. I understand it's pleasant, upbeat, trendy enough for today's youth but I'm
    not able to tell all of the Korean groups apart and I've been to Korea. Figure that...

    Jerry Butler and Louis Price (formerly of the Temptations) sound similar to me.

    George Duke's stints into funk riffed Bootsy's delivery. Neither was a serious effort to sing a song, though.

    Not four, but Charlie Wilson and Aaron Hall drank deeply from Stevie's well.

    And R. Kelly drank deeply from Aaron Hall's well when he first arrived.

    Again not four but Selena sounded very similar to Phylis Hyman. Given they drank from different wells of music, Iím sure itís coincidental.

    You think so? I donít hear it. Iíve always gotten more of a Phyllis feel from Toni Braxton.
