The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees for 2013 have been announced.
Donna Summer, the 'Queen of Disco' will be inducted. The singer, who died in May at the age of 63, rose to fame in 1976 with the disco hit "Love to Love You Baby."
Other nominees include:
Canadian progressive rockers Rush, recognized for their complex rock songs that draw on blues; Randy Newman, known for his sharp, ironic pop songs; Heart, whose hits include 80s ballads "These Dreams" and "Alone;" and rap group Public Enemy, who explored American race relations with songs such as "Fight the Power."
Two non-performers were also inducted: Lou Adler, executive producer of the rock-musical cult hit "The Rocky Horror Picture Show," and pop arranger, composer and producer Quincy Jones.
Inductees will be officially honored at a ceremony in Los Angeles in April.
