Recordings by Whitney Houston, Public Enemy, Billie Holiday among 2018 Grammy Hall of Fame inductees


Arista RecordsTwenty-five recordings, either as songs or albums, are being inducted into the 2018 Grammy Hall of Fame.  

Whitney Houston, legendary hip-hop group Public Enemy and jazz musician and singer-songwriter Billie Holiday are among the artists whose works will be honored. 

Songs and albums are eligible for induction after 25 years, and they must exhibit “qualitative or historical significance.” 

There are 25 new titles going into the Hall this year: among them, Whitney’s 1992 #1 global smash “I Will Always Love You,” Public Enemy’s politically-charged 1990 hit “Fight the Power” and Holiday’s 1937 song, “My Man.”

Other inductees this year include Gladys Knight & The Pips‘ “I Heard It Through the Grapevine,” rock guitarist Jimi Hendrix‘s “Band of Gypsys,” Dr. Dre‘s 1992 album The Chronic and the Four Tops‘ 1965 single, “I Can’t Help Myself.”
