Rock band Foreigner has been named a nominee to the 2024 Hall of Fame class.

Lou Gramm, a Gates native and Gates-Chili graduate, was Foreigner’s vocalist and a huge force behind the band’s international success.

Gramm was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, with Foreigner bandmate Mick Jones, in 2013.

Other 2024 nominees include Mary J. Blige, Mariah Carey, Cher, Dave Matthews Band, Eric B. & Rakim, Peter Frampton, Jane’s Addiction, Kool & The Gang, Lenny Kravitz, Oasis, Sinead O’Connor, Ozzy Osbourne, Sade, and A Tribe Called Quest.

The inductees will be announced in late April, with the induction ceremony in Cleveland to take place this fall.
