Induct Dale and Grace to the R & R Hall of Fame

I would like to get the 60\'s duo of Dale & Grace inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Dale Houston and Grace Broussard rocketed to the top of the Billboard chart with two rock and roll hits - gold records with more than 1 million copies sold - "I\'m Leaving It Up to You" (# 1) and "Stop and Think It Over" (# 8) in 1963 and 1964, respectively. When "I\'m Leaving It Up to You" reached #1, it was the first time a hit by a duet was succeeded by another duet on the number one spot. It remained #1 for two weeks. In 2000 Dale and Grace into the Louisiana State Hall of Fame, and that same year, they received the "Louisiana Living Legends Award" from the Public Broadcasting Service. Earlier, they were inducted into the Texas Music Hall of Fame and the Gulf Coast Music Hall of Fame, both in 1998. In 2007 Dale and Grace were inducted into the Delta Music Hall of Fame. To garner such an honor, one must have national or international recognition. Also in 2007 for their contributions to Louisiana music, Dale and Grace were inducted into The Louisiana Music Hall of Fame. "I\'m Leaving It Up To You" has been a favorite of male-female duos for years and was performed by Sonny & Cher and Donny and Marie Osmond, who returned it to the top ten in 1974 under the revised title "I\'m Leaving It (All) Up To You", and released an album entitled I\'m Leaving It All Up to You. Donny and Marie\'s version of the song also was a Top 20 country hit and won the 1974 Grammy for Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group. I thank you for your time and let\'s get Dale and Grace nominated for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
