Apollo Theater Needs Help


The world famous Apollo Theater is looking to raise some capital to finish its restoration project that was started in 2001. This place is famous for launching the careers of many successful entertainers throughout the years, as well as being known as a virtual landmark of black music. An excerpt from its wiki page about the world renowned theater:

Billing itself as a place “where stars are born and legends are made,” the Apollo became famous for launching the careers of artists such as Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, James Brown, Diana Ross & The Supremes, Gladys Knight & The Pips, The Jackson 5, Patti LaBelle, Marvin Gaye, Luther Vandross, Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Ben E. King, Mariah Carey, The Isley Brothers, Lauryn Hill, and Sarah Vaughan.

Damn, those are some pretty big names there. They expect the restoration project to be completed by 2010. For more info go to the orgs website, www.apollotheater.org
