Whitney Houston and BIGGIE Inducted Into The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame

Whitney Houston and BIGGIE were both officially inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame this weekend. Family of both artists were there virtually to accept during the annual indication, which was totally different this year of course – going all virtual. The late music icon – who died in February 2012, aged 48 – was celebrated as part of a virtual event for this year’s Hall of Fame’s inductees. Cissy Houston, her mother, said: “I’m so very, very proud that Whitney is being inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. “She wanted to be something – not anything. She worked hard at it, too.” Pat Houston, her manager and sister-in-law, also revealed that being inducted into the Hall of Fame was always an ambition for the late star. Pat shared: “This is something Whitney always wanted. I remember in 2009, we were in London. Whitney looked at me and she said, ‘This is really special, but there’s only one thing missing: I’ve got to get the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.’ This moment right now proves it all: there’s only one matchless Whitney Houston, and tonight, she would be very proud and honoured to receive this award.” Elsewhere, the late rapper Notorious B.I.G. was inducted into the Hall of Fame, too. His children T’yanna, 27, and CJ, 24, accepted the award on behalf of the hip-hop icon, who was killed in a drive-by shooting in 1997. This year’s induction class also included Nine Inch Nails, the Doobie Brothers, Depeche Mode, and T. Rex.
