Stevie Wonder being inducted into Apollo Hall of Fame (tix)
Stevie Wonder will be inducted into the Apollo Legends Hall of Fame at this year’s Apollo Theater annual Spring Gala. The Gala Benefit Concert and Awards Ceremony brings together the best and brightest in business and entertainment to raise funds in support of the non-profit theater’s remarkable legacy and its initiatives for emerging artists and community and educational programs in New York City and beyond. Stevie Wonder joins past inductees into the Apollo Legends Hall of Fame including Michael Jackson, Aretha Franklin, Quincy Jones, Patti Labelle, Smokey Robinson, James Brown, Gladys Knight and the Pips, Little Richard, and Ella Fitzgerald.
This star-studded concert and award show will feature music performances by some of the industry’s hottest entertainers. Special guests who have appeared in the past include Jamie Foxx, Chris Tucker, Mariah Carey, Prince and many others. Sometimes the audience won’t know who will show up until they walk out onto the famous Apollo stage!
Tickets for the June 13th event are on presale now (password = ALIST). General sale starts March 31st (it’s a very long presale).
Oh and speaking of Prince, he plays NYC again THIS MONDAY (with Cee-Lo).
