DETROIT, Oct. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Rhythm & Blues Music Foundation is looking for a home for such artists as The Temptations, The O'Jays, Aretha Franklin, Jackie Wilson, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, Prince, and Elvis Presley - just to name a few.
The Rhythm & Blues Hall of Fame was founded in 2010 by long time music lover and business entrepreneur LaMont Robinson. Since 2013, the Rhythm & Blues Hall of Fame has inducted over 135 rhythm and blues legends at their annual star-studded ceremonies.
Cleveland has the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame for rockers, and Nashville has the Country Music Hall of Fame for country music icons. There is a need for a hall of fame museum for rhythm & blues artists that have helped pave the way for so many genres of music.
Cheryl Ruffin, president of the Rhythm & Blues Music Foundation and the daughter of the late great David Ruffin of the Temptations, says that the Rhythm & Blues Hall of Fame will be a 3-D highly interactive educational experience with a wall of fame, a music-themed restaurant and a 250 seat theater.
Founder Robinson, says any city that is interested in having this national/international tourist attraction, that will bring more than 250,000 visitors per year plus the annual induction ceremony,that will boost their economy. "For example," he says, "look at what the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and the Country Music Hall of Fame has done for both the cities of Cleveland and Nashville."
Any city that wants the title of "The Rhythm & Blues Music Capital of the World," should contact the Rhythm & Blues Music Foundation at (313) 936-9616 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org
