Bill and Gloria Gaither, Inez Andrews, Yolanda Adams, and Lee Williams & The Spiritual QC's are among 10 new inductees into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame & Museum for 2002. "This year's inductees represent some of the world's most accomplished gospel music artists and we are excited to be celebrating their lifetime achievements," Gospel Hall of Fame founder David Gough said in a statement.

The other inductees are Daryl Coley, Eula Jean Dunkin Hurley, the Rev. Cleophus Robinson, Harold Smith and the Majestics, Charles Fold & the Charles Fold Singers, and Dr. Charles Hayes and the Cosmopolitan Church of Prayer Choir.

Fans were invited to cast votes on the hall's Web site and by mail-in ballots. Voters were allowed to select up to 10 individuals, groups, choirs, radio personalities, and promoters who have contributed at least 25 years to the growth and development of gospel music and entertainment.

The induction ceremony will be held Oct. 26 at the Marriott Hotel at downtown Detroit's Renaissance Center.
