Justin timberlake memphis music hall of fame induction speech

The Memphis Music Hall of Fame, located in Memphis, Tennessee, honors Memphis musicians for their lifetime achievements in music. The induction ceremony and concert is held each year in Memphis. Since its establishment in 2012, the Hall of Fame has inducted more than 48 individuals or groups. It is administered by the non-profit Memphis Rock N' Soul Museum. In July 2015, the Memphis Music Hall of Fame opened a 'brick and mortar' museum and exhibit hall, which features memorabilia, video interviews, and interactive exhibits.

The Memphis Music Hall of Fame, created as a tribute to the city's wide-ranging role in the fields of blues, gospel, jazz, R&B, country, rockabilly and hip-hop, was launched on November 29, 2012, featuring an induction ceremony for its first 25 honorees at the Cannon Center for the Performing Arts.

Each inductee into the Memphis Music Hall of Fame receives the Mike Curb Award, named after songwriter, producer and record company owner, Mike Curb. Annual inductees are selected by a Nominating Committee composed of nationally recognized authors, producers, historians and leaders in the music industry. The number of annual inductees may vary.

On August 1, 2015, the Memphis Music Hall of Fame opened its museum and exhibition hall at 126 S. 2nd Street between the Hard Rock Cafe and Lansky Brothers' Clothier. The museum features memorabilia and other archival materials from nearly all of the 60 inductees.
