Aretha Franklin will be joined by bluegrass legend Ricky Skaggs, family group The Hoppers, contemporary Christian singer Dallas Holm, the late TV evangelist Rex Humbard and Christian rock band Love Song.
The Gospel Music Hall of Fame was established in 1971. More than 150 musicians have been inducted, including Dolly Parton and Elvis Presley.
Aretha Franklin's gospel roots run deep, starting with her father who was a prominent Baptist minister. Her 1972 album, "Amazing Grace," has sold over 2 million copies and is one of the best-selling gospel albums of all time. Three of her 18 Grammy awards were for gospel categories.
