  Frank Sinatra.
  Elvis Presley.
  The Beatles.
 And of course, Canonsburg's own Perry Como and Bobby Vinton.
They are among the 14 pop acts selected by public vote for induction in America’s Pop Music Hall of Fame in the borough.
 Johnny Tillotson—an early ‘60s pop icon—revealed the first 14 inductees at a press conference
 Friday at the Canonsburg McDonald’s, home to a collection of Vinton and Como memorabilia.
 Those artists from Canonsburg—a borough of 8,900 people—have placed nearly 200 songs on the Bill board pop charts, Manager Terry Hazlett said.
 Inductees, who had to have a hit prior to 1970 to be considered, were selected from 40 nominees chosen on the  breadth, depth and influence of their recordings.
 These, alphabetically, are the first inductees into America’s Pop Music Hall of Fame.
 •They brought surf music and “Pet Sounds” to America—The Beach Boys.
 •Even today, pop music is defined as what came before and after this band—The Beatles.
