We are endeavoring for the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame

for his significant contribution to the Music Industry.

To:  Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

*This petition is addressed to:
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation
1290 Avenue of the Americas
New York, NY 10104
and concerns the matter of the induction of artist Roy Hamilton
to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Cleveland, Ohio.

Roy Hamilton made significant contributions to the music industry, both through his own hits and his widespread influence on many of the artists of his era and artists who would emerge after him, including Brook Benton, The Righteous Brothers (who covered two of his biggest hits, Ebb Tide & Unchained Melody), Jackie Wilson, and most notably Elvis Presley, all of whom, with the exception of Benton, has already been inducted into the Hall of Fame.

Roy Hamilton has already been honored with inductions to the Georgia Music Hall of Fame, The Hit Parade Hall of Fame, and an honorary laureate degree from Morris Brown University for the lasting imprint he left on the music industry, and we feel its time the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame did the same.

We formally petition that Roy Hamilton is nominated and inducted
into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame with all due speed.

Sincerely,

The Undersigned

The Roy Hamilton Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Petition to Rock and Roll Hall of Fame was created by Fans of Roy Hamilton and written by Maria & Roy Hamilton, Jr.  (goldenboy71@earthlink.net).
