    "Michael Jackson is in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Rhythm and Blues Hall of Fame, the National Museum of Dance Hall of Fame, the UK Music Hall of Fame, the Vocal Group Hall of Fame and the Grammy Hall of Fame.

    Jackson’s heirs can now add another hall of fame to the late singer’s list of honors – he was the biggest vote-getter among this year’s inductees to America’s Pop Music Hall of Fame, which is based in Washington County. The newest batch of inductees was announced late last week.

    In fact, Jackson is getting in twice, as both a solo artist and as a member of the Jackson Five, the group he was in with his brothers Marlon, Jermaine, Jackie and Tito.

    The Jackson Five has been nominated previously to America’s Pop Music Hall of Fame, but in online voting by the public, the group “rode in on Michael Jackson’s coattails evidently,” according to Terry Hazlett’s, the pop hall’s executive director and the former borough manager of Canonsburg."

    "Michael Jackson, ABBA and Billy Joel are among 15 pop acts selected for 2017 induction into America’s Pop Music Hall of Fame. Michael Jackson, in his first year of eligibility, topped the public on-line vote. The new inductees were announced Thursday.

    Also newly-elected into the Hall of Fame by public vote are the Dave Clark Five, Earth Wind & Fire, Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye, the Jackson Five, Diana Ross and Rod Stewart. In the “Legends” category, The Hall of Fame nomination board chose Pat Boone, Fats Domino, the Drifters, Connie Francis and Bobby Vee in recognition of their influence on pop music.

    Inductees had to have a charted song prior to 1980 to be considered and were selected from 20 nominees chosen by a national music industry panel based on the breadth, depth and influence of the artists’ recordings."
