Ask anyone and they'll tell you that the 2017 #APOLLOGALA was the best Apollo Gala of all time! The show? Electrifying. #UncleCharlie? Outstanding...!! Sheila E? Tore it down! We McDonald?? Standing ovation(s)! The host? Hilarious! Second line down 126th? We got our entire life. The party tent? AMAAAZING dawling! The DJ? Had us two-steppin! Fundraising records met? BROKEN.
Of course, the Apollo is home to an illustrious history of black music and black musicianship. It is the center of the universe as far as that’s concerned. To be a star in that constellation is a bright shining achievement for anyone privileged enough to take the stage at the Apollo. That’s what it means to me.... #ApolloGala
What a great Joy to honor the man who gave me my first gig. A Legend in the world of TV and Film, Stan Lathan is also responsible for launching the careers of so many talents across the board. My Man. #ApolloGala#stockphoto
