Wyclef Jean will now find a permanent residence in New Jersey.
The GRAMMY-winning musician is among the likes of Kelly Ripa, Ray Liotta and Connie Chung as inductees into the New Jersey Hall Of Fame. Fifteen individuals, with professions ranging from sports to public service, have been recognized for their respective achievements and legacies.
“Induction into the New Jersey Hall of Fame is the highest civilian honor that our State can bestow on someone,” John Keegan, Chairman Emeritus of the NJHOF Foundation Board, said via press release. “It’s a celebration of New Jersey and its greatest achievers, and a recognition of role models for our next generation. This is New Jersey’s version of the Academy Awards, so attendees can expect some surprise celebrity appearances.”
The ceremony takes place May 7th.
