The American Pop Music Hall of Fame hasn't opened its doors, but the western Pennsylvania-based hall already has its first slate of inductees.
 
The organization announced Friday that 14 artists from a list of 40 were picked by the public in online voting. Groups with a hit before 1970 were considered.

  The Hall of Fame's temporary home is expected to open this fall in Canonsburg, just outside Pittsburgh. Fundraising for a permanent home is under way.
 
The finalists are the Beach Boys, The Beatles, Johnny Cash, Ray Charles, Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Neil Diamond, Stevie Wonder, Brenda Lee, Johnny Mathis, Bobby Darin. Also making the cut are Canonsburg local heroes Perry Como and Bobby Vinton.
 
The winners will be formally inducted on July 3.
