Travels by Deb

A visit to the Apollo Theater in New York City is often on many tourists’ bucket lists. This storied place is not only Harlem’s most famous historic landmark, but it’s also the birthplace for the careers of countless artists, from Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday and Gladys Knight & the Pips to The Jackson 5, Marvin Gaye, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder and even Machine Gun Kelly. This is “Where Stars are Born and Legends are Made.”
