*The Apollo Theater will celebrate music royalty this summer with the induction of the King of Pop and Queen of Soul into its coveted hall of fame.
The late Michael Jackson and music legend Aretha Franklin will be honored with the Apollo Legends Hall of Fame on June 14 at the historic Harlem theater, according to the Associated Press.
Jackson, along with his brothers, first graced the Apollo stage in the late 1960s during its famed Amateur Night. The siblings won, and their career as the Jackson Five was launched.
Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony will also be honored with the theater’s arts and humanitarian award.
Past hall of fame inductees include Quincy Jones, Patti LaBelle and Ella Fitzgerald.
