The Rock And Roll Hall of Fame announced its inductees for 2013 at a press conference held at the Nokia Theater L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles today, and two solo acts who have been eligible for years have finally been voted in: Donna Summer and Randy Newman. (Artists are eligible 25 years after their first release.)
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s 2013 ballot is out, and disco icons Donna Summer and Chic are both up for induction this year.

Bruce Springsteen, meanwhile, thought enough of Donna Summer to write “Protection” for her.
Nile Rodgers is a well-liked guy. As the leader of Chic, he’s responsible for some of the biggest hit singles ever, including “Le Freak” and “Good Times.” And as a producer, he’s helmed records by Madonna, David Bowie, David Lee Roth and Mick Jagger. So, it’s no surprise that he has a lot of famous friends, many of whom sent him video or voicemail messages to celebrate his 60th birthday.
