Grammy Award for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Grammy Award for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance was awarded between 1968 and 2011. The award has had several minor name changes:

  • In 1968 it was awarded as Best R&B Solo Vocal Performance, Male
  • From 1969 to 1994 it was awarded as Best R&B Vocal Performance, Male
  • Since 1995 it has been awarded as Best Male R&B Vocal Performance

The award category was discontinued in 2012 as part of a major overhaul of the Grammy categories. It was merged with Best Female R&B Vocal Performance and Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals into a single category for Best R&B Performance.

Years reflect the year in which the Grammy Awards were presented, for works released in the previous year.
