Queen Latifah Inducted Into NJ Hall of Fame

Last night (Sunday June 5), a few of New Jersey’s finest from the fields of entertainment, sports and the arts were inducted into the state’s Hall of Fame.

Queen Latifah, John Travolta, Bruce Willis, singer Tony Bennett, lifestyle guru Martha Stewart and former N.Y Jets owner Leon Hess were among the 13 members of the 2011 class being inducted. The hall honors New Jerseyans who have made their mark in the fields of history, entertainment and enterprise. In order to be considered for nomination, you must have lived in New Jersey for at least 5 years and have made a significant contribution to the Garden State.

“One thing I learned in New Jersey — how to be fearless. I’m from Newark, I told you,” Latifiah said as she walked the red carpet leading into the induction ceremony at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark.

Previous inductees include Bruce Springsteen, Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, Yogi Berra and Jack Nicholson.—Nicole LoPresti
