Notorious B.I.G and Whitney Houston are two of the selected few named in the 2020 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame class.
The induction will take place on May 2nd at Cleveland’s Public Auditorium and is quite the honor for artists. Both Houston and B.I.G are legends within the culture and abroad.
Artists reach Rock and Roll Hall of Fame eligibility after 25 years in the game. To be specific, 25 years since the release of their first single. This is more than an award but is quite the honor for the culture and is an honor that’s reserved for legends. The voting cast is made up of over 1,000 music professionals across the industry.
My Favorite of Biggie
When I think of these Hall of Fame inductees, I think of music that left great after-tastes. This is music that vibrates long after the final lyric.
With Biggie, his 1997 single “Sky’s the Limit” featuring 112 is one of my favorites. I was only 7 years old when it came out but I connected with the melody instantly. Even before the lyrics were really meaningful to me, I was always in love with the song’s vibe. Now that I’m older, I too feel like the “sky is the limit” and I’ll keep on “pressing on”.
My Favorite of Whitney Houston
Whitney Houston will forever have a place in my heart. Not only is she one of the most beautiful women I’ve ever seen but her voice was equally soothing and powerful. She’s a goddess.
Truth be told, my mother loves Whitney Houston. She played her music all throughout my childhood and that was my introduction to the Diva. My mother loves The Preacher’s Wife and when she wasn’t watching the movie ( for the billionth time), she was listening to the soundtrack.
There was a song on that soundtrack that I always vibrated with. That song was ‘I Believe in You and Me’.
That song was about the teamwork associated with healthy love. In my youth, I had no clue what that meant to me but I loved her voice. In my adulthood, I feel that song and every lyric it vibrates.
