The Apollo also shared a statement detailing the event. Read it below:
Music has the incredible power to connect, transform and heal. We hope you will support the Apollo Theater and join us for a special event featuring music that lifts our spirits, shapes our lives, and continues to unite us all.
In response to the pandemic and the cancellation of Apollo-produced live events through the month of June, the Apollo has established an emergency relief fund to financially stabilize the Theater and safeguard its future. In addition, a portion of the funds raised will be allocated for micro grants to support local merchants and small businesses in the 125th Street neighborhood impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
