The Songwriters Hall of Fame has announced their slate of 2023 inductees - and it features big names, as well as those that are usually behind the scenes.
For those that usually are not in the spotlight, Liz Rose (frequent collaborator of Taylor Swift), Glen Ballard (who wrote mega-hits for everyone from Aerosmith to Barbra Streisand) and Teddy Riley (often considered the inventor of "New Jack Swing"; member of Guy and BlackStreet, as well as songwriter for artists such as Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder and more).
As for those that are songwriters and also take the stage, Jeff Lynne (of ELO and Traveling Wilburys fame), Sade Adu (of the 80's pop/r&b band Sade), Gloria Estefan (solo and with the Miami Sound Machine), and rap legend Snoop Dogg.
Snoop will be only the fifth hip hop star inducted (after Jay-Z, Jermaine Dupri, Missy Elliott, and The Neptunes’ Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo). Estefan makes history as the first Hispanic woman inducted. The induction ceremony happens June 15 at the Mariott Marquis Hotel in NYC.
