Help us get Roy Hamilton into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame

This petition is addressed to:
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation
1290 Avenue of the Americas
New York, NY 10104
and concerns the matter of the induction of artist Roy Hamilton
to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Cleveland, Ohio.

Roy Hamilton made significant contributions to the music industry, both through his own hits and his widespread influence on many of the artists of his era and artists who would emerge after him, including Brook Benton, The Righteous Brothers (who covered two of his biggest hits, Ebb Tide & Unchained Melody), Jackie Wilson, and most notably Elvis Presley, all of whom, with the exception of Benton, have already been inducted into the Hall of Fame.

Roy Hamilton has already been honored with inductions the Georgia Music Hall of Fame, The Hit Parade Hall of Fame, and an honorary laureate degree from Morris Brown University for the lasting imprint he left on the music industry, and we feel its time the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame did the same.

We formally petition that Roy Hamilton is nominated and inducted
into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame with all due speed.

  1. James Knuttel says:

    Roy Hamilton was a magnificent singer. He deserves to be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

  2. Jack Brown says:

    Deserving. Hero to Elvis and Jerry Lee. Excellent chops. Superb artist. Color, Tone. Feeling.
    The whole bouquet. The full orchestra. Employs trained sound selectively. A poet. A painter.
    A true vocal artist.Intelligence. ***** Great singer.

  3. Phil Greenhut says:

    I’m 78. I listen every day on spotify
    I keeps me going in the nursing home
    He is my number one artist now and in past.

  4. Jerry Newton says:

    Roy Hamilton was in a class of his own. and no other singer will ever fill his shoes. I thank the good lord for giving us Roy. His music will forever be cherished and remembered.

  5. MAURICIO PENELA says:

    ROY HAMILTON AND JOHNNY MATHIS ARE MY TWO ALL-TIME GREATEST MALE SINGERS!!!! I BOUGHT ROY’S ALBUM WITH “YOU’LL NEVER WALK ALONE,” “EBB TIDE,” “HURT” AND MORE IN THE EARLY 60s. IT WAS STOLEN FROM ME. I KNEW THE S.O.B. KLEPTOMANIAC WHO STOLE IT AND MY “THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES” BY SARAH VAUGHN, BUT I COULDN’T PROVE IT.

    MY ALL-TIME GREATEST FEMALE SINGERS ARE: SARAH “SASSY” VAUGHN, DINAH WASHINGTON, GLADYS KNIGHT, MARIAH “MIMI” CAREY, DIONNE WARWICK.

    MAURICIO (MONDAY, OCTOBER 5, 2015 — 5:19 A.M.

  6. Steve Church says:

    The first time I heard “”Don’t Let Go” it knocked me out! He “out-Elvised” Presley himself with that tune. Roy still not given his due!

  7. Duke Dugger says:

    Anyone who inspired the King of Rock’n Roll the way Roy did, deserves to be in the RnR H.O.F..

  8. DENISE WHITE says:

    This is one amazing vocalist of all time, for Mr. Hamilton Sr. Who’s has truly left an amazing legacy with us for all the world to enjoy.. Mr. Hamilton Sr. smooth silky soulful voice is so deserving of this honor..

  9. John Blach says:

    Roy Hamilton – Cracking up over you, You can count on me, Let the music play , Dark end of the street …. tip of a massive ice berg … the guy is A1 … always floors me … his records are GREAT … wish he was still here …
    John Blach Nottingham UK

  10. Ray says:

    My mother introduced to the fabulous music of Roy Hamilton and I have been a fan of his music from the first time I heard him. H e has a unique quality in his voice – strength and phrasing unmatched by any other singer! Sad he died so young and maybe to day with proper care and medication he would have had a longer life.
