Patti Labelle's music has moved a lot of people. Her music style in very different from all other artists. She must be inducted

Labelle was originally known as Patti La Belle and The Bluebelles, and included Patti, Sarah Dash , Nona Hendrix, and Cindy Birdsong . The only difference between the two groups is that Cindy left them to join The Supremes , to replace the late Flo Ballard , then the remaining members, Patti, Sarah, and Nona, became LaBelle. Although Patti has had the most success as a solo artist, ALL of the Bluebelles have released solo albums , and have had a measure of solo success. (each one has their own Wikipedia article)...and they are still touring today, so I think they should go in as a GROUP.

She is not Rock and Roll.

She is not Rock and Roll? Umm okay, well neither are 1/4th of the acts in the R&RHOF. She has quite a well-respected career no matter what incarnation (Labelle, solo, etc.). She has worked with several people who are in the HOF, and many singers of today consider her as an influence. So yes, Patti Labelle is a legend in her own right.

Well we know that it isn't about race, then what the hell could it be? One of the best vocalist ever!!! She's done effortlessly almost every genre of music in every decade since the 60's. She's recorded over 50 albums. I heard someone mention success and charts, if that the case all artist should stop doing art for art sake and do it for charts and money. Think about it she's one of the greatest of all time and hasn't been inducted! Something is wrong with that...

honestly, I laughed out loud at the post above that claims that "she's not rock and roll". Well, to whoever posted that?..YOUR TEACHER IS HERE, NOW!!...first of all, there are a TON of acts/singers/bands in the HOF that aren't "rock and roll". Some of them, like the Platters, were strictly r&b. So, the 'rock & roll' label is just that..a label. It doesnt mean all that YOU think it does.
