Michael Jackson and James Brown To Grace Apollo's Walk Of Fame In NYC

Published May 10, 2010

The Apollo is bringing Michael Jackson and James Brown to Harlem, NY. Early today (May 10), the Apollo Theater began installation on its own Walk Of Fame with plaques that will honor a bevy of entertainers incuding Michael Jackson and James Brown.

In addition to Jackson and Brown, Smokey Robinson, Aretha Franklin and Ella Fitzgerald will also be honored in front of the famed theater. Franklin and Jackson will have their plaques laid down next month.

Smokey Robinson said of the accolade, "I started out at the Apollo and it will always be a home to me."
