    Stevie Wonder will be inducted into the Apollo Theater’s Apollo Legends Hall of Fame in New York City at a gala in his honor in June. The theater made the announcement on Wednesday, noting that Wonder first took to the Apollo stage in 1962 at the age of 12. He was a child performer in Berry Gordy’s Motown Revue. Since then, the multi-instrumentalist has gone on to write and sing such hits as “I Just Called to Say I Love You” and “Isn’t She Lovely?” from hit albums including Talking Book, Innervisions and Songs in the Key of Life.  He has performed several times at the theater from the 1980s onward, singing at the Save the Apollo concert and a series of solo shows in 2005. Previous inductees into the Apollo Legends Hall of Fame include Michael Jackson, Ella Fitzgerald, Quincy Jones, Aretha Franklin, and Smokey Robinson.
