The reason Britons sing in American accents is because jazz, blues and r&b are all from America. So if you got your start playing Chuck Berry or Muddy Waters songs that was what you were immitating.

The reason why the Brits immitated their favourite music instead of assimilating it is because America was the IT culture and the thing to aspire to. If it were only a case of taking the accents of the originators then the blues would have been sung in a Celtic or African accent
