The Apollo Theater celebrated the holidays with offerings for the entire family. The stage was set for a night of soul-stirring gospel music for the holidays featuring multi-platinum superstar and five-time Grammy Award winner Yolanda Adams (“Open My Heart” and “The Battle Is the Lord’s”) with Grammy Award winner Donnie McClurkin (“We Fall Down” and “Stand”). Their stunning voices, dazzling energy and unshakable faith ushered in the holiday spirit alongside the Greater Allen Cathedral Choir.
Holidays at the Apollo are designed to celebrate culture, music, and community during the festive season. Throughout its legendary history, the Apollo has consistently been a cornerstone of the Harlem neighborhood and a vital resource for community members. This year’s holiday programming epitomizes the range and vibrancy at the core of the theater’s artistic mission. Check out some of the event highlights.
