Rock legend Tina Turner and r&b icon Mary J. Blige have been nominated for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s Class of 2021.
Dionne Warwick and Chaka Khan have also been nominated.
Turner is already a Rock & Roll Hall of Famer — but the accolade is shared with her late ex-husband, Ike Turner.
“This remarkable ballot reflects the diversity and depth of the artists and music the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame celebrates,” John Sykes, the new chairman of Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Foundation, said in a statement. “These nominees have left an indelible impact on the sonic landscape of the world and influenced countless artists that have followed them.”
The top Rock & Roll Hall of Fame vote-getters will be announced in May. The induction ceremony will take place in Cleveland this Fall. Fans can vote now on the Rock Hall’s website.
