Throughout its history, the Apollo Theater has maintained strong ties to the gospel community; with numerous gospel artists gracing the Apollo stage, such as Mahalia Jackson, Bebe and Cece Winans, Yolanda Adams and Donnie McClurkin. In honor of this joyous musical genre the world famous Apollo presents Amateur Night at the Apollo Gospel Night.
