LOS ANGELES (AP) — Randy Newman launched the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony Thursday with his ode to Los Angeles.

The singer-songwriter kicked off the 28th annual induction ceremony at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles with a performance of "I Love L.A." The inductee was joined by Jackson Browne, John Fogerty and Tom Petty.

Newman is among this year's eight inductees, which also includes rockers Heart and Rush, rap group Public Enemy, disco queen Donna Summer, bluesman Albert King, and producers Quincy Jones and Lou Adler.

The event marks the first time since 1993 that the Cleveland, Ohio, institution has held its induction ceremony on the West Coast.

The event will be broadcast May 18 on HBO.
