Harlem’s Apollo Theatre Honors Stevie Wonder And Gives Back To The Community
On Monday, the Apollo Theatre in Harlem, held its 6th annual Apollo Gala Concert and Awards Ceremony honoring the legendary musician Stevie Wonder.
A recent inductee into the Legends Hall of Fame, Wonder was joined onstage by artists Tony Bennett, Wyclef Jean, Yolanda Adams, Paul Schaffer, Raphael Saadiq, Questlove, Chick Corea and comedian Sinbad.
Other notable celebrities at the event include Robert DeNiro and wife Grace Hightower; Spike Lee, Phylicia Rashad, Gabourey Sidibe, Rev. Al Sharpton, Wyclef Jean, and Sherri Shepherd.
The Gala was a hugely successful night celebrating the most influential tastemakers from both business and entertainment. Best of all, profits go towards supporting the Apollo’s community and educational programs in New York City.
We love to see those at the Apollo and its supporters giving back to the city!
