Who are the women singers that give you emotional strength and what are their songs that you gather strength from?

Was it Gloria Gaynor from hundreds of years ago who sang ... walk out that door I don't need you any more ... change that lock and key ...? Celine Dion's songs give me strength too and Sarah McClaughlin's songs I love to for calmness and peace. What about you?

  • she's a singer songwriter, mostly folk. I like her voice and her songs are just....nice and sweet. very empowering too. not in a feminist way like ani difranco, a little more mellow. one of my fave songs by her is "anywhere you go". I heard it in red lobster once and downloaded the song as soon as I got home LOL. I burned a cd, heard it in the car on the way to somewhere and I actually started crying because I was so happy the song was MINE lol

  • Des'ree "You Gotta Be":

    Listen as your day unfolds
    Challenge what the future holds
    Try and keep your head up to the sky
    Lovers, they may cause you tears
    Go ahead release your fears
    Stand up and be counted
    Don't be ashamed to cry
    You gotta be
    You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold
    You gotta be wiser, you gotta be hard
    You gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger
    You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm
    You gotta stay together
    All I know, all I know, love will save the day

  • Julie Roberts. She is technically classed as country, and I am NOT a fan of country, but her self titled album is one of my favorites from start to end. It's music I can relate to...

  • Heather Headley

    Chorus:] I wish I wasn't in love with you
    So you couldn't hurt me
    it just ain't fair the way you treat me
    No you don't
    deserve me
    Wasting my time thinking bout you when you ain't never gon change
    I wish I wasn't in love with you so I
    wouldn't feel this way


    Wait a minute
    I've been calling out to you
    There's nothing more you can say to make me stay
    This time I swear I'll stand firm to my word
    Wait a minute
    I've cried my last cry
    For the last time
    See you've stayed away a day too late
    I've hurt for too long, boy, now you've got to pay

    she is a great singer

  • Sugarland's female singer - Song: Stay
    I got the strength to walk away from a relationship after some guy I loved with all I had told me he was single and he wasn't. Why are men so cruel to us? If they are married why don't they work on their marriage instead of conning women into something they know that can never be. That's just sad. Everyone gets hurt in those situations.
