The Lennon Sisters, The Manhattan Transfer and Straight No Chaser
Fall of 2022: The Lennon Sisters, The Manhattan Transfer and Straight No Chaser took part in a video induction ceremony and will be honored throughout the coming year with programming that explores the traditions of vocal harmony and the impact of these artists on the American Songbook.
“I think there’s a magic in vocal harmony, in group harmony,” The Manhattan Transfer’s Trist Curless said. “There is something about it that just catches people, no matter the style … Whether it’s in a pop song, a rock song, a metal song, a reggae song, when you get to that chorus and there’s the harmony parts – everybody is drawn to that.”
