The induction ceremony took place On May 28, in the heart of Harlem, New York in front of the landmark building on 125th Street. Mary J Blige said;

“My very first time performing here at the Apollo, I was not on stage as myself. I was on stage singing background for Jeff Gray. And then from there on, it was all history, Mary J. Blige history, so, thank y’all so so so much for everything.”

The nine-time GRAMMY®️ winner is the youngest-living person to be honored by the world-famous theater. Mary J Blige thanked her fans and teased her upcoming film;

“I got something special coming for y’all, June 25, it’s the My Life documentary.”

The Apollo’s Walk of Fame was established in 2010 with a Community Initiatives Program grant from the Harlem Community Development Corporation.
