Every year, honorees are chosen by a voting committee of more than 1,000 coveted music executives, historians, and fellow artists, along with online fan votes. Whitney Houston and Biggie, whose real name is Christopher Wallace, will join last year’s hip-hop and R&B honorees, Tupac Shakur and Janet Jackson.
Whitney Houston’s official Instagram page acknowledged her latest honor with this post.
The 2020 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees will be celebrated on May 2nd in Cleveland, Ohio.
