In 2005, the group was awarded two gold plaques for their biggest hits, "Please Mr. Postman" and "Don't Mess with Bill" after the [[...|RIAA]] had certified the singles as million-sellers. The following year, Horton appeared on the PBS concert special, My Music Salute to Early Motown, along with other Motown stars from the label's early years. Some of the group's recordings were later sampled for songs by rap musicians, most notably [[Jay-Z]]'s song, "Poppin' Tags", sampled the group's 1970 cover of [[Smokey Robinson]]'s composition, "[[After All (The Miracles song)|]]", from his 2002 album, [[The Blueprint 2: The Gift & The Curse]].
In 1995, they were honored with the "Pioneer Award" at the Rhythm & Blues Foundation. In 2004, the group was inducted to the [[Vocal Group Hall of Fame]]. In 2006, Marc Taylor issued the biography, The Original Marvelettes: Motown's Mystery Girl Group. The group's story had been documented several years before in magazine from a 1984 article.
In 2009, as part of Motown's 50th Anniversary celebrations, a new limited-edition triple-CD set on the group entitled The Marvelettes: Forever – The Complete Motown Albums Vol. 1 was released. This featured the group's first six albums, some of which had never been released on CD. The Marvelettes: Forever More – The Complete Motown Albums Vol. 2, which included their later albums and bonus material, was released in 2011.
In 2012, after being overlooked for many years, the [[Rock and Roll Hall of Fame]] nominated the Marvelettes for induction. They became eligible for induction in 1987.
