The “Let’s Stay (In) Together:
A Benefit to Support the Apollo Theater”

 
event is part of the non-profit Theater’s campaign to raise $4 million in immediate funding support.

In addition to raising funds for the 
Apollo’s innovative artistic and educational programs--which serve more than 200,000 people annually--a portion of the resources raised will go towards a micro-grant initiative for local small businesses.

Support for the 
Apollo Theater remains crucial as we all continue to navigate the negative economic effects of COVID-19 on the performing arts and entertainment fields. The Apollo Theater is committed to providing virtual programming and preparing for the next season of world-class live performances, community, and education programs. Any contribution over $75 qualifies for an Apollo Membership and supports staff salaries, teaching artists, perf ormers and artistic and educational programs. To make a tax-deductible donation to the Apollo Theater , visit: https://www.apollotheater.org/donate .  


 

“For more than eight decades, the Apollo Theater’s strength and resiliency have been as constant as the talent on our stages, but like non-profit organizations around the world, we are facing an unparalleled challenge. Immediate additional funding is critical for us at this time, and I am incredibly grateful to the generous donors and friends who have supported the Theater since we closed our doors in March,” said Jonelle Procope, Apollo Theater President & CEO . “I hope this online celebration inspires people across the globe to come together and enjoy the sounds of the Apollo, as well support the Theater’s mission to champion Black culture and the arts of the African diaspora. Through such generosity we will be able to give back directly to the vibrant Harlem community that has supported us for many years.”


 

“Music is one of the world’s enduring gifts, and its power to connect, transform, and heal have always been center stage at the Apollo,” said Kamilah Forbes, Apollo Theater Executive Producer. “Although our stages remain dark, the Apollo sound has never been more vibrant, and I’m grateful to DJ D-Nice for sharing it, and to Gibson for its support in helping us amplify our musical soundtrack while also raising funds for the Theater and our neighbors in Harlem.”


 

“We are thrilled to shine a light on the history of the Apollo, an American institution that needs our attention and support to stay intact during these times,” says Nat Zilkha Partner at KKR and Chairman of Gibson Brands . “Gibson gives artists the tools they need to re-imagine American music and the Apollo gives artists the iconic space to entertain generations to come. We look forward to a long partnership with the Apollo Theater supporting their programs and the artists who inspire our entire culture.”

About the Apollo Theater 

The legendary Apollo Theater —the soul of American culture—plays a vital role in cultivating emerging artists and launching legends. Since its founding, the Apollo has served as a center of innovation and a creative catalyst for Harlem, the city of New York , and the world . With music at its core, the Apollo’s programming extends to dance, theater, spoken word, and more . This includes the world premiere of the theatrical adaptation of Ta-Nehisi Coates’s Between the World and Me and the New York premiere of the opera We Shall Not Be Move d ; special programs such as the blockbuster concert Bruno Mars Live at the Apollo 100: The Apollo Celebrates Ella ; and the annual Africa Now! Festival . The non-profit Apollo Theater is a performing arts presenter, commissioner, and collaborator that also produces festivals, large-scale dance and musical works organized around a set of core initiatives that celebrate and extend the Apollo’s legacy through a contemporary lens, including the Women of the World (WOW) Festival as well as other multidisciplinary collaborations with partner organizations. Since introducing the first Amateur Night contests in 1934 , the Apollo Theater has served as a testing ground for new artists working across a variety of art forms and has ushered in the emergence of many new musical genres—including jazz, swing, bebop, R&B, gospel, blues, soul, and hip-hop . Among the countless legendary performers who launched their careers at the Apollo are Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Billie Holiday, James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Gladys Knight, Luther Vandross, H.E.R., D’Angelo, Lauryn Hill, Machine Gun Kelly and Miri Ben Ari; and the Apollo’s forward-looking artistic vision continues to build on this legacy.
