In the greatest case of “duh!” of all time, Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston are being inducted into the momentous Rhythm & Blues Hall of Fame and Museum (R&BHOF).
On Sunday, August 24, 2014, this year’s R&BHOF induction ceremony will be held in Canton, Ohio — a town that rings familiar because of the Pro Football Hall of Fame and its proximity to Cleveland — at the Canton Palace Theater.
Other honorees include The Whispers, Marvin Gaye, The Funk Brothers, Gene Chandler, Joe Jackson, and The Sweet Inspirations. Confirmed attendees and/or supporters (among others) are Duke Fakir (The Four Tops), Kim Weston, Martha Reeves, and the families of Jackie Wilson, Sam Cooke, and David Ruffin.
Last year at the Cleveland State University in Ohio, many Detroiters and Motown alumni were inducted into the R&BHOF inaugural class such as The Temptations, The Four Tops, The Dramatics, and Jackie Wilson to name a few. R&BHOF officials recently announced the likelihood of a permanent home for the official R&BHOF Museum being built in the city of Detroit.
