Whitney Houston set for Rock Hall induction
Joining her as part of the hall’s 2020 class are Nine Inch Nails, Depeche Mode and the Doobie Brothers.
Years after their deaths, Whitney Houston, the Notorious B.I.G. (pictured) and T. Rex's Marc Bolan will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Joining them as part of the hall's 2020 class are Nine Inch Nails, Depeche Mode and the Doobie Brothers. Houston, T. Rex, B.I.G. and the Doobie Brothers are being inducted after being on the ballot for the first time.
The Rock Hall’s annual induction ceremony was originally supposed to take place in May at the Public Auditorium in Cleveland, the city where the rock museum is located, but things changed because of the coronavirus pandemic. Instead, HBO will air a taped special airing Saturday, with big names like Bruce Springsteen, Sean “Diddy" Combs and Alicia Keys making appearances alongside some of the inductees.
Houston, who died in 2012, released her debut album in 1985 and became one of the greatest singers in music history. B.I.G. only released two albums but made a major impact on both the rap and pop music scenes. He died in 1997 at age 24.
Artists become eligible for induction to the Rock Hall 25 years after the release of their first record.
