Good morning. I'm Michel Martin. The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame has announced 16 new inductees. They include Mary J. Blige and Kool & The Gang.

KOOL AND THE GANG: (Singing) How you going to do it if you really don't want to dance? By standing on the wall?

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "TWO STEP")

DAVE MATTHEWS BAND: (Singing) Because life is short but sweet for certain. Hey.

MARTIN: Dave Matthews Band was also named to the list of honorees. The induction ceremony will be held live on October 19 in Cleveland. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
