The Apollo Theater Legends Hall of Fame will be honoring Stevie Wonder. NPR via AP reports the singer and musician will be inducted on June 13, 2011. Previously, the Theater has honored stars like Ella Fitzgerald, James Brown and Smokey Robinson. Last year, Aretha Franklin and Michael Jackson were inducted.
Wonder’s music career has included many highlights, including over 30 U.S. top ten hits and the most number of Grammys awarded to a male solo artist. The Apollo is of special significance as he made his debut at the famous theater in 1962 at age 12.
As in the past, the induction will include performances and an awards ceremony.
