Whitney and Elton have been honoured for their respective 1985 and 1970 self-titled albums.
The posthumous honour for Whitney comes nine months after her death at the age of 48.
The Grammy Hall of Fame collection recognises singles and album recordings from all genres. Recordings must be at least 25 years old and ‘exhibit qualitative or historical significance’.
Paul McCartney and Wings (Band on the Run), Billy Joel (Piano Man), Ray Charles (Hit the Road Jack), Frank Sinatra (New York, New York), Bob Dylan (The Times They Are A-Changin) and James Brown (I Got You (I Feel Good)) are among the 27 new titles for 2013.
The list of honourees are on display at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles. With the new additions the list total is at 933.
“With the Grammy Hall Of Fame celebrating 40 years, it’s especially important to note that these entries continue the tradition of inducting a wide variety of recordings that have inspired and influenced both fans and music makers for generations,” Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy, said in a statement issued on Wednesday.
“Memorable for being both culturally and historically significant, we are proud to add them to our growing catalog of outstanding recordings that have become part of our musical, social, and cultural history,’ he added.
