King, Usher & Belafonte Join Rock and Roll HOF Lineup

Carole King, Usher and Harry Belafonte have joined the line up to honor the class of 2013 at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony next month.

Legendary singer/songwriter King will perform in recognition of her former producer and manager Lou Adler, who will be inducted by stoner icons Cheech & Chong, while R&B star Usher will hit the stage to pay tribute to iconic producer Quincy Jones. Both honorees will receive the Ahmet Ertegun Lifetime Achievement Award, which recognizes non-performers for their outstanding contributions.
Meanwhile, veteran rocker John Fogerty will team up with Jackson Browne to salute Randy Newman; Chris Cornell will induct Heart, and calypso star Belafonte and director Spike Lee will help to celebrate the career of rap group Public Enemy.
Previously announced presenters and performers include Dave Grohl, Don Henley, John Mayer, and Jennifer Hudson and Christina Aguilera, who will salute disco queen Donna Summer at the Los Angeles event.
