Can you suggest any good female vocalists?

I initially asked this question in pop/rock but most of the people suggested had a really bland or monotone voices that I didn't think were very good. They need not be just soul, blues and jazz are good to.

Thanks!

Update:

I do not consider Amy Lee from evanescence good...I saw her in concert and she was terrible. She had no range what-so-ever, it's all just studio editing.

Besides, she is not blues, jazz or soul.

Sorry, if that offends anyone.
