Janet Jackson To Be Inducted Into The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame
The official induction ceremony will occur in March 2019.
Janet Jackson is among the many musicians who will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s 2019 class.
Ms. Jackson, Radiohead, The Cure, Stevie Nicks, Roxy Music, Def Leppard, and the Zombies are the very talented musicians who will be honored at the 34th Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. The highly-coveted ceremony will be held on Mar. 29 at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.
Jackson, whose career spans several decades, responded to the exciting news with a tweet. “We did it u guys,” she wrote with a purple heart. “Thank U for all your love and support. #RockHall2019.”
This has been a banner year for Jackson. Earlier this year, she performed at the 2018 Essence Festival, Billboard Music Awards, Panorama Music Festival, and the Global Citizens Festival. She also teamed up with Reggaeton artist Daddy Yankee for a new single, “Made For Now.”
“I'm deeply humbled and grateful for this award. I believe for all the challenges we live at a glorious moment in history,” she said during her Icon Award acceptance speech at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards. “It's a moment at long last that's made it clear that we will no longer be controlled, manipulated or abused."
Congrats to all of the inductees.
