pop music hall of fame

3

On this day in music history: January 18, 1989 - Stevie Wonder becomes the youngest musician in history to be inducted into The Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame. Part of the fourth group of inductees (which also includes Dion, Otis Redding, The Rolling Stones, and The Temptations), Wonder is only thirty eight years old at the time he receives the honor. In order for an artist to be considered for induction, the artist must have released their first record at least twenty five years before. Wonder releases his first single on Motown in 1962 at the age of twelve.
