    The Philadelphia Music Alliance will extend its Walk of Fame this year to include Patti Labelle and Jill Scott, among others.

    The honorees will be formally inducted in an Oct. 4 ceremony on the Avenue of the Arts

    The organization’s “Class of 2017” also includes: Sarah Dash and Nona Hendryx of Labelle; ’70s vocal group Sister Sledge (who performed during Pope Francis’s 2015 visit); songwriting duo McFadden & Whitehead (known for “Ain’t No Stoppin’ Us Now”); Sister Rosetta Tharpe (the subject of the recent rock-and-roll gospel musical “Shout Sister Shout”); R&B group The Soul Survivors; and Chris Schwartz of Ruffhouse Records.

    In addition, Bob Pantano of 98.1-FM’s Saturday Night Dance Party will receive the PMA’s 2017 Broadcaster Award, and Anne Ewers, President and CEO of the Kimmel Center, will receive the Platinum Award, which is “given to an individual, organization or company that has been a leader and champion in supporting the music making community in a significant way,” according to the organization.

    “The 2017 honorees represent powerhouse vocals, signature anthems, soulful vibes, and production firsts within the R&B, pop and rock genres, with an emphasis on powerful and decorated women in music,” PMA vice chair Mia Tinari said in a statement.

    The PMA will celebrate with an induction event on October 4th, featuring afternoon ceremonies along the Avenue of the Arts. The event will conclude with a special grand gala at the Fillmore Philadelphia. Tickets for the gala are available online.
