Donna Summer and Public Enemy Join the 2013 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductees

Donna Summer
 
Public Enemy
A new class of inductees for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame was announced to include the Queen of Disco, Donna Summer and the ever conscious rap group Public Enemy.
 
In the performer category, Heart, Albert King, Randy Newman, Public Enemy, Rush and Donna Summer will receive the prestigious induction.
 
Lou Adler and Quincy Jones will receive the Ahmet Ertegun Award, which is given to non-performers.
 
To be eligible for a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nomination, artists had to have released their work at least 25 years prior to appearing on the ballot. That means this year's group released their first single in 1987 or earlier.
 
For the first time since 1993, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will be held on the West coast. The 28th annual event is scheduled for April 18 and will be held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. in Los Angeles, California.
The ceremony will be open to the ticket-buying public, and will air on HBO at 9 p.m. on May 18.
