After 35 years, 16 million albums sold worldwide, and 32 Top 40 hits, Corey Hart finally has a home in the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.

The heartbeat of pop music in the 80s and 90s was honoured at The 2019 JUNO Awards, live from London’s Budweiser Gardens on Sunday, March 17. Fellow inductee Sarah McLachlan described Hart as “hopeful, determined, talented and cool” before welcoming him into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame with open arms.

In speaking directly to his fans, Corey said: Without you, my songs would have no home. They would ultimately be unrequited and empty. So I thank you from the bottom of my heart, no pun intended, for listening to me way back when.
