‘Ladies and Gentlemen, live at the Apollo, all the way from Torontoooo, Canada, it’s….Torontoist!’ Wouldn’t we love to hear that. But wouldn’t anyone? Here’s your chance: On Saturday, December 3, the Drake Hotel Underground offers the chance at a much-coveted Apollo Theatre spot. Apollo judges will host auditions starting at 11 am till 2 pm.
The live spot would be a part of the 71st year of obviously Apollo amateur night. The Harlem theatre is famous for launching the careers of Ella Fitzgerald, James Brown, Gladys Knight, Michael Jackson and The Jackson 5, and Lauryn Hill.
