Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame to honor female artists
CLEVELAND (AP) — The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum says it will open the world’s first exhibit devoted to rock’s most influential female artists.
The show opening May 13 at the museum in Cleveland will feature women ranging from Billie Holiday and Aretha Franklin to Melissa Etheridge and Lady Gaga.
“Women Who Rock: Vision, Passion, Power” will spotlight more than 50 female artists and fill two floors of the hall with artifacts and video telling the story of how women have shaped the history of popular music. Throughout the year, the museum will offer educational programming on the role women have played in rock and roll.
A benefit concert is planned for May 14. Performers will include Cyndi Lauper and Wanda Jackson.
