"A gift to music, k.d. lang's voice is an instrument unto itself -- uniquely beautiful and haunting," said Melanie Berry, president of the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences "I join millions of Canadians and music fans around the world in congratulating one of our most accomplished singer-songwriters of all time."
And the singer is overjoyed by the accolade: "To be included in the lineage of Canadian artists who have formed my musical DNA and who remain my mentors, is beyond humbling. I am deeply honored to be inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame."
Previous Hall of Fame honorees include Neil Young, Leonard Cohen, Shania Twain and Joni Mitchell.
