The Philadelphia Music Alliance announced on Wednesday that seven musicians will be added to Philadelphia's Walk of Fame this fall.

The class of 2019 honorees include the classical music company The Philadelphia Orchestra, legendary R&B group the O'Jays, disco star Evelyn King, Philly rock band the Hooters, DJ Pierre Robert, Universal Music Publishing Group CEO Jody Gerson and late Philadelphia socialite and philanthropist Dorrance Hamilton.
