AMATEUR NIGHT AT THE APOLLO: NOTHIN' BUT SOUL
Sponsored by The Coca-Cola Company
Wednesday, July 3 at 7:30 p.m.
For more than 77 years, the Apollo Theater has been home to music royalty. The legendary roster includes Gladys Knight, the Empress of Soul; James Brown, Godfather of Soul; Michael Jackson, the King of Pop, and Aretha Franklin, the Queen of Soul. Tonight, contestants pay homage to these legends by giving performances that are based on the roots of nothin' but soul music.
Winners of this event will move on to perform during the July 24 Show Off and hopefully on to Top Dog on October 9. It all leads to the chance of winning the title of Super Top Dog and a cash prize of $10,000 on November 27!
Aspiring musicians, singers, dancers, comedians, rappers and spoken word artists try their best to please the audiences that can make them an Apollo legend. Then get ready to cheer or jeer as you decide who stays and who gets booed off stage. At Amateur Night, you tell the performers to be good or be gone!
Amateur Night at the Apollo is hosted by the comedian Capone. Each show begins with a festive pre-party featuring video and music by DJ Jess. And keep a lookout for master impressionist C.P. Lacey, the resident Executioner who sweeps bad talent off the stage.
Contestants to be announced are... Melodie, Khalil Abdul Malik, Brian Lenair, Anthony Quarterman, Kevin Jackson, Matthew Jackson, MaynEvent, Tru-Sol, Antoinette Henry, Blake England and Shantel Norman.
*A-LIST $5 off in Advance until the day before the show.
