Former Giants quarterback and Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning, gospel singer Cissy Houston, award-winning actor Ed Harris and two dozen other accomplished New Jersey residents will be inducted to the New Jersey Hall of Fame during a star-packed virtual ceremony on Sunday, Oct. 18.
The Class of 2019-2020 inductees are a veritable who’s who of New Jersey greats who have distinguished themselves in the performing arts and letters, public service, academia, business, sports and the performing arts.
“These Garden State heroes perfectly represent what makes our state great,” said New Jersey Hall of Fame Chairman Jon Hanson. “It’s our privilege to honor these inductees for their outstanding contributions to our state.”
The one-hour show features a number of musical performances and will be hosted by award-winning actor, singer and comedian Jason Alexander, best known for his iconic role as George Costanza in “Seinfeld.” The broadcast starts at 7 p.m. and can be viewed on several television, radio and social media platforms serving New Jersey, including NJTV, WWOR/MY9, facebook.com/NewJerseyHallofFame, and YouTube/c/NewJerseyHallofFame.
