    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. mike and whitney 3

    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. For further details please visit their website at: http://www.rbhalloffame.com/
