Whitney Houston Nominated To The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame For The First Time | Music News


Whitney Houston is one of the 16 artists, who have been nominated for a place on the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The news was released on SiriusXM VOLUME channel 106’s Feedback morning show on Tuesday.


Houston is also one of the nine nominees to be on the ballot for the first time, while such artists as Chaka Khan have been nominated six times, over the past years, but have not yet managed to make it to the prestigious Hall of Fame.


An artist can only be nominated for the Hall 25 years after the release of their first album, and Houston debuted her first EP in 1985, so it’s surprising that her nomination has only been proposed now. One of the biggest stars of the 1980s, she was the first artist ever to have seven consecutive singles hit number one in the US, among which, were eternal songs like “I Will Always Love You” and “Saving All My Love For You”.


The nominees will now face an international voting session, with more than 1000 artists, historians and members of the music industry, who will have the chance to share their preference. Results of this ballot will be joined by fans’ preferences, who can share their opinion via the ‘Rock Hall Fan Vote‘ web page.


The top vote-getters will be announced in January and awarded on May 20, 2020 at the 35th annual Rock & Roll Hall of Fame ceremony at the Public Auditorium in the Hall’s home base of Cleveland.
