“Where Stars Are Born And Legends Are Made” (Apollo Theater)
"Where Stars Are Born And Legends Are Made" is the new slogan of Harlem's legendary Apollo Theater.

http://www.apollotheater.com/about.shtm
Yesterday…A place where thousands of young artists have stepped out into the spotlight and launched their careers. A place "where stars are born and legends are made." The legendary Apollo Theater is so much more than an historic landmark - it is a source of pride and a symbol of the brilliance of American artistic achievement. From 1934 when the Apollo first introduced its world-famous Amateur Night which launched the careers of legendary artists like Ella Fitzgerald, James Brown, Michael Jackson, D'Angelo and Lauryn Hill, the Apollo has maintained its position as the nation's most popular arena for emerging and established black and Latino performers.

In 1983, the Apollo obtained federal, state and city landmark status. Amateur Night was revived, and in 1985, the Apollo Theater celebrated its 50th Anniversary with a grand reopening gala and nationally broadcast television special Motown Salutes the Apollo. Two years later,ShowTime at the Apollo the television show based on the original Apollo Amateur Night, began airing in syndication and now runs weekly on NBC affiliates in 119 markets nationwide.
