Whitney Houston and Notorious BIG are set to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame alongside Nine Inch Nails, T-Rex, the Doobie Brother, and Depeche Mode.


The induction ceremony will take place at the Public Auditorium in Cleveland on May 2, where the rock museum is located.

Whitney Houston's colorful career was tainted by a troublesome personal life that led to her drug abuse.

Houston's success began when she was signed to a record contract at 19-years-old, dropping three number 1 singles instantly: "The Greatest Love of All," "Saving All My Love for You," and "How Will I Know." She proceeded to have seven consecutive singles top the charts, which was a first for any artist.

Whitney Houston's colorful career was tainted by a troublesome personal life that led to her drug abuse. In 2012, this vice ultimately led to her demise.




Due to drug abuse, Whitney Houston's career began falling apart, and it even affected her personal life. After years of struggle, she lost her voice and tried to get several surgeries to get it back.

However, in 12, she passed after drowning in a bathtub with substances and drug paraphernalia around her in the bathroom. Three years later, her daughter was also found dead in a bathtub.



Meanwhile, Notorious BIG, known as Christopher Wallace in real life, was an influential person in the rap scene in the 1990s. He had hits like "Big Poppa," and "Juicy," which up until today are favored by many.

He was killed in an unsolved drive-by shooting in LA at age 24 back in 1997. After his album "Life After Death" was released, his hits "Mo Money Mo Problems" and "Hypnotize" made him the first artist to earn multiple no. 1 singles after his death.



To date, people continue to remember Whitney and Christopher for the impactful music they put out that continue to resonate with fans, and their tragic deaths continue to bother many.

Now that they're being given another honor, it's yet another testament of the influence they continue to have and the impact they've had on many.
