Adding to a collection of awards that includes 14 Grammy nominations and an Academy Award for her song Let the River Run in the movie Working Girl, Carly Simon will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame at this year’s ceremony in November.

Ms. Simon joins a 2022 class of Hall-of-Fame female icons, including Dolly Parton, Pat Benatar, Sylvia Robinson, Elizabeth Cotton and Eurythmics front-woman Annie Lennox, the organization announced.

Ms. Simon, a longtime Vineyard resident who started coming to the Island as a young girl with her family, sang at various venues around the Island as a teenager. She hit the big time with her Grammy-award winning song

That’s the Way I’ve Always Heard It Should Be from her 1971 debut album. Her follow-up albums Anticipation and No Secrets, which included the hit single You’re So Vain, cemented her status as a worldwide star.

Despite an apparent meteoric success, her career was by no means easy.

She developed a crippling stutter as a young girl, which made her shy and afraid of her own voice, a feeling that never went away, she told the Gazette in a 2015 interview.

“I don’t like to be on stage either because I don’t like to be in the spotlight and that probably has to do with the early days in school and being called on in class and I couldn’t say anything because of my stammer,” she said.

But the spotlight shines again on Nov. 5 in Los Angeles at the 37th annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony.
