Bilal, "Soul Sista"

Before he was tapped to honor Prince at a tribute held at Carnegie Hall earlier this year, sultry R&B crooner Bilal channeled his "inner Prince" way back in 2000. His Raphael Saadiq-produced debut single, "Soul Sista," which reminds us of the Purple One, broke into the Billboard Top 20 and has become one of Mr. Oliver's signature hits. (Photo: Mike Coppola/Getty Images)
