Each year, inductees are selected by a special committee of eminent professionals from all areas of the recording arts.
Three albums from Latino musicians made the list this year and will be inducted next to such albums as “Exile on Main St.” by The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen’s “Born in the U.S.A,”and “graceland” by Paul Simon.
Notable singles included this year are “Que Sera, Sera (Whatever Will Be, Will Be)” by Doris Day and Tina Turner’s “What’s Love Got to Do With It”. Martin Luther King Jr.‘s “I Have a Dream Speech” will be also inducted as this year’s ‘Spoken Word Track.’
