Michael Jackson is apart of the first class of entertainers to be honored with stars on a new Walk Of Fame site outside of New York’s Apollo Theatre.
Along with the King of Pop Michael Jackson, others to be honored will be The Godfather of Soul James Brown, Quincy Jones, Patti LaBelle, Smokey Robinson, Gladys Knight and the Pips, Aretha Franklin
, Little Richard and Ella Fitzgerald.
The plaques were installed this week for everyone except Michael Jackson and Aretha Franklin. Jackson and Franklin’s plaques will be unveiled in June with the Gala Benefit.
Each year at the non-profit Theater’s Spring Gala Benefit, legendary musicians, artists, and entertainers whose path to fame included the Apollo are inducted into the Apollo Legends Hall of Fame.
The Apollo theater is celebrating its 75th anniversary year.
