American Music Award for Favorite Soul/R&B Band/Duo/Group

The American Music Award for Favorite Soul/R&B Band/Duo/Group was awarded since 1974, but has been discontinued since 2009. Years reflect the year in which the awards were presented, for works released in the previous year (until 2003 onward when awards were handed out on November of the same year).
