Although the word "croon," to sing soft and sad, should allow the inclusion of countless singers (ahem, Mariah Carey, Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, Diana Ross...), the classic characterization of a "Crooner" is a male vocalist who sings Jazz standards, like Frank Sinatra, John Legend, or Michael Bublé, for example.
