Brenda Lee accepts her induction

Thank you to Jewel for that wonderful introduction. Thank you to all of you. I have been blessed to sing and be on stages most of my life, and this is certainly a stage that I have wanted to be on, and here I find myself tonight and I feel like Cinderella at the ball. It’s a long way from the Georgia cotton fields to the Waldorf Astoria. Ha! And I can tell you that I owe it to Owen Bradley, the great musicians that I’ve worked with, and the great songwriters who have seen fit to share their creativity with me through the years. And most of all, I owe it to rock and roll. I’m honored. Thank you so very much.
