Today (March 8) is International Women's Day, and we at My Kiss 1031 want to sing the praises of R&B's most powerful and inspirational women.

Actually, we'll let them sing the praises while we dedicate the entire Noon hour to playing their greatest songs. Today is all about celebrating the accomplishments of the women in our lives, and music is such a powerful way of communicating how we feel.

We've got some awesome tracks in mind, but is there a song you think we should play? Tap the Chat button on the free KSSM app to shoot us a message and let us know.

You can also write us on Facebook.
