America’s Pop Music Hall of Fame Announces Inductees – 14 acts voted into sophomore class

December 9, 2013
America’s Pop Music Hall of Fame Announces Inductees
14 acts voted into sophomore class
Chicago, Monkees, Bee Gees among inductees
Chicago, the Monkees and the Bee Gees are among the 14 pop acts selected by public vote for induction into the sophomore class of America’s Pop Music Hall of Fame.
The Monkees, who have famously been snubbed by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, topped the 2014 public vote for the Pop Music Hall of Fame.  (Johnny Mathis led the vote for 2013 inductees).
Also elected into the Hall of Fame are Tony Bennett, the Carpenters, Buddy Holly, Elton John, Carole King, Dean Martin, Roy Orbison, Patti Page, the Platters, Simon & Garfunkel and the Supremes.
Inductees had to have a charted song prior to 1971 to be considered. They were selected from 25 nominees chosen by a music industry panel based on the breadth, depth and influence of the artists’ recordings. These, alphabetically, are the 2014 inductees into America’s Pop Music Hall of Fame.
After a series of pop/rock ballads in the ‘60s, they were stayin’ alive in the ‘70s by commandeering the disco era….The Bee Gees
His trek from “Rags to Riches” has covered seven decades, but he left his heart in San Francisco…Tony Bennett
This brother-sister act defined the soft-rock era with songs such as “Close to You” and “We’ve Only Just Begun” in the early ‘70s…The Carpenters
They successfully fused rock, pop and jazz over three decades with hits such as “Saturday in the Park,” “25 or 6 to 4” and “Feelin’ Stronger Every Day”…Chicago
With just 18 months in the spotlight, he nonetheless influenced generations of singers…Buddy Holly
He’s the No. 1 solo artist in pop history – and he’s still standing…Elton John
A singer-songwriter, she recorded the iconic album of the ‘70s with “Tapestry”…Carole King
A star of stage, screen and television – and a singer, too! – everybody loves…Dean Martin
They received more votes than any other 2014 nominee. Hey, hey, they’re…The Monkees
His sensational, soaring voice helped define the ‘60s with “Oh Pretty Woman” and “Blue Bayou”…Roy Orbison
With “Tennessee Waltz,” “Allegheny Moon” and “Old Cape Cod,” she was a rock star before the phrase was coined…Patti Page
Their silky smooth ballads from the ‘50s and early ‘60s remain jukebox favorites…The Platters
Their poetic folk music from “Sounds of Silence” to “Bridge Over Troubled Waters” inspired a generation… Simon & Garfunkel
With five consecutive No. 1 singles in the mid-‘60s, they were the face of Motown…The Supremes
The artists join The Beach Boys, The Beatles, Johnny Cash, Ray Charles, Nat King Cole, Perry Como, Bobby Darin, Neil Diamond, Brenda Lee, Johnny Mathis, Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Bobby Vinton and Stevie Wonder in America’s Pop Music Hall of Fame.
A feasibility study to determine the size and location of a permanent Pop Music Hall of Fame facility is underway. Current plans are for a large, multi-use performance venue as well as both permanent and rotating exhibits. America’s Pop Music Hall of Fame is based in Canonsburg, the home of Perry Como, Bobby Vinton and the Four Coins, who together placed nearly 200 songs on the Billboard charts. Canonsburg is just south of Pittsburgh, Pa.
Election of the third class of inductees will be in September 2014.
