UPDATE: ‘Apollo Live’ AuditionsPublished by Justin D Joseph on Tuesday, May 8, 2012 at 9:22 am.
For nearly eight decades, the Apollo Theater has served as a launch pad for a series of successful entertainers including Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughn, James Brown, The Jackson 5, The Isley Brothers, Luther Vandross, and Lauryn Hill. Now you can become apart of that legacy!
Executive producers Jamie Foxx, Marcus King, and Don Weiner have put a fresh spin on the classic “Amateur Night” variety show, enlisting veteran emcee Doug E. Fresh, and New Edition’s Michael Bivins to serve as judges, while comedian Tony Rock has been named the host.
Are you the next Apollo legend? Then what are you waiting for?
