Ah the voice for Black Box and one of the big influences on house music... I'd say Yes based on her influence in the electronic genre.

I liken Martha Wash to Johnny Maestro: both were big names in their respective styles... but they spread that cache out over a few different places. No one single vehicle for either one is worthy of induction on its own (although I probably would vote yes on the Crests); however, I would really like see both of these figures inducted in some capacity, like Lifetime Achievement, or prove that the Award For Musical Excellence isn't merely a renaming of "Sideman".

Absolutly YES! No one lasts 30+ years in the music industry without talent. You don't know that Martha Wash is without dispute one of the Legends! She has never been limited to a passing faze and has the Billboard Hits to prove this. Want to pack a dance floor play Martha Wash! Want a Hit ask Martha Wash to sing! She is current thru 3 decades; Surely the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame would GET UP AND DANCE!
