The music was performed by Annie, Jack, Cian, Thomas, Evan Smith, Sam KS, Greg Leisz, Daniel Hart, Michael Leonhart, Lynne Fiddmont and Kenya Hathaway.

ABOUT ST. VINCENT

Annie Clark made her recorded debut as St. Vincent in 2007 with Marry Me, quickly becoming regarded as one of the most innovative and fascinating presences in modern music. Each of St. Vincent’s subsequent albums has met with critical acclaim and commercial success eclipsing that of its predecessor. These albums would include Actor (2009), Strange Mercy (2011), and her self-titled fourth album and winner of the 2014 GRAMMY for Best Alternative Album, making her only the second female artist ever to win in that category. In addition to these solo works, St. Vincent joined with David Byrne to record and release the collaborative album Love This Giant in 2012, and performed with Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear of Nirvana at the band’s 2014 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In 2017, working with co-producer Jack Antonoff, St. Vincent created a defining statement with MASSEDUCTION. The album broke St. Vincent into the U.S. and UK top 10s while landing atop Best of 2017 lists of The New York Times, The Guardian, AV Club, Billboard, Entertainment Weekly, NME, Q, USA Today, and more, not to mention winning two GRAMMYs (Best Rock Song for its title track, and Best Recording Package). Most recently, St. Vincent channeled the hungover glamor and gritty sepia-toned soundtrack of 1970s downtown NYC into the triumphant Daddy’s Home, released in May 2021 to near universal acclaim. In a glowing five-star review of the album, Mojo Magazine said “It’s masterful stuff: a full conceptual realization, filled with great melodies, deep grooves, colourful characterisations, and some sonic detail that reveals itself over repeated plays.” Outside of recording and performing, St. Vincent has directed the short horror film The Birthday Party, and co-written and starred as a fictionalized version of herself in the upcoming film The Nowhere Inn.

Gibson Presents Live Concert

Gibson, the iconic, American-made, leading instrument brand, is proud to partner with the legendary Apollo Theater for the “Let’s Stay (In) Together: A Benefit To Support The Apollo” benefit concert.

The celebration marks the launch of a partnership between Gibson and the Apollo Theater which will include collaborations on future show programming, music education initiatives, music preservation, and support established and emerging talent.

The live, free virtual benefit concert will kick off Black Music Month in June and will offer critical support to safeguard the ground-breaking institution’s future following the unprecedented cancellation of more than 100 programs due to COVID-19.

Tune in to watch the “Let’s Stay (In) Together: A Benefit To Support The Apollo” live stream this coming Tuesday, June 2 at 7:30 pm ET/4:30 pm PT at www.apollotheater.org.

“Let’s Stay (In) Together: A Benefit to Support the Apollo Theater” is sponsored by Gibson, through the Gibson Gives foundation. The free benefit concert will showcase an array of special guests delivering poems and performances dedicated to the memory of those who have lost their lives due to COVID-19.

The landmark livestream event features performances by “CAPTAIN” KIRK DOUGLAS OF THE ROOTS, KOOL & THE GANG, GARY CLARK JR., ROBERT RANDOLPH, RAY CHEW, MICHAEL MCDONALD, LIL BUCK & JON BOOGZ, KEB MO, CELISSE HENDERSON, INFINITY’S SONG, MARC BAMUTHI JOSEPH and DJ REBORN as well as special appearances from DIONNE WARWICK, DOUG E. FRESH, ROY WOOD JR. and more to be announced.

During the show, artists will perform the music of Apollo legends such as B.B. King, Patti LaBelle, and Stevie Wonder, and highlight the Apollo’s 86-year contribution to arts and culture. The “Let’s Stay (In) Together: A Benefit to Support the Apollo Theater” concert will also be available for free streaming by media partner, TIDAL. “Let’s Stay (In) Together: A Benefit to Support the Apollo Theater” is part of Apollo Sound, which celebrates Black Music Month in June and illuminates the power of music to transform, build community, and heal. DJ D-Nice–the resident DJ for the Apollo’s annual benefit for eight years–will kick-off the month-long Apollo Sound celebration on Monday, June 1 by dedicating his wildly popular Instagram Live Club Quarantine dance party to the Apollo Theater. The “Let’s Stay (In) Together: A Benefit to Support the Apollo Theater” event is part of the non-profit Theater’s campaign to raise $4 million in immediate funding support.

In addition to raising funds for the Apollo’s innovative artistic and educational programs–which serve more than 200,000 people annually–a portion of the resources raised will go towards a micro-grant initiative for local small businesses. Support for the Apollo Theater remains crucial as we all continue to navigate the negative economic effects of COVID-19 on the performing arts and entertainment fields. The Apollo Theater is committed to providing virtual programming and preparing for the next season of world-class live performances, community, and education programs. Any contribution over $75 qualifies for an Apollo Membership and supports staff salaries, teaching artists, performers, and artistic and educational programs.

“For more than eight decades, the Apollo Theater’s strength and resiliency have been as constant as the talent on our stages, but like non-profit organizations around the world, we are facing an unparalleled challenge.

“Immediate additional funding is critical for us at this time, and I am incredibly grateful to the generous donors and friends who have supported the Theater since we closed our doors in March,” said Jonelle Procope, Apollo Theater President & CEO.

“I hope this online celebration inspires people across the globe to come together and enjoy the sounds of the Apollo, as well as support the Theater’s mission to champion Black culture and the arts of the African diaspora. Through such generosity, we will be able to give back directly to the vibrant Harlem community that has supported us for many years.”

“Music is one of the world’s enduring gifts, and its power to connect, transform, and heal has always been center stage at the Apollo,” said Kamilah Forbes, Apollo Theater Executive Producer.

“Although our stages remain dark, the Apollo sound has never been more vibrant, and I’m grateful to DJ D-Nice for sharing it, and to Gibson for its support in helping us amplify our musical soundtrack while also raising funds for the Theater and our neighbors in Harlem.”

“We are thrilled to shine a light on the history of the Apollo, an American institution that needs our attention and support to stay intact during these times,” says Nat Zilkha, Partner at KKR and Chairman of Gibson Brands.

“Gibson gives artists the tools they need to re-imagine American music and the Apollo gives artists the iconic space to entertain generations to come. We look forward to a long partnership with the Apollo Theater supporting their programs and the artists who inspire our entire culture.”

About the Apollo Theater

The legendary Apollo Theater—the soul of American culture—plays a vital role in cultivating emerging artists and launching legends. Since its founding, the Apollo has served as a center of innovation and a creative catalyst for Harlem, the city of New York, and the world. With music at its core, the Apollo’s programming extends to dance, theater, spoken word, and more. This includes the world premiere of the theatrical adaptation of Ta-Nehisi Coates’s Between the World and Me and the New York premiere of the opera We Shall Not Be Moved; special programs such as the blockbuster concert Bruno Mars Live at the Apollo; 100: The Apollo Celebrates Ella; and the annual Africa Now! Festival.

The non-profit Apollo Theater is a performing arts presenter, commissioner, and collaborator that also produces festivals, large-scale dance and musical works organized around a set of core initiatives that celebrate and extend the Apollo’s legacy through a contemporary lens, including the Women of the World (WOW) Festival as well as other multidisciplinary collaborations with partner organizations. Since introducing the first Amateur Night contests in 1934, the Apollo Theater has served as a testing ground for new artists working across a variety of art forms and has ushered in the emergence of many new musical genres—including jazz, swing, bebop, R&B, gospel, blues, soul, and hip-hop. Among the countless legendary performers who launched their careers at the Apollo are Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Billie Holiday, James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Gladys Knight, Luther Vandross, H.E.R., D’Angelo, Lauryn Hill, Machine Gun Kelly, and Miri Ben Ari; and the Apollo’s forward-looking artistic vision continues to build on this legacy.

NCT 127 – LIVE CONCERT

This Saturday, May 16, at 11 pm PT (Sunday, May 17 at 2 am ET), NCT 127 will perform a live concert, NCT 127 – Beyond the Origin, which will be streamed to over 200 countries across the globe in real-time. The show is part of the groundbreaking new concert streaming series via SM Entertainment and Naver V LIVE, Beyond LIVE. Subtitles will be available in several different languages for viewers all around the world. Tickets are available for purchase within the V LIVE app and online, and special bundles are also available. Check HERE for more details.

Fans who tune into NCT 127 – Beyond the Origin will get to see the Seoul-based pop powerhouse perform their brand-new song “Punch” days before its release. “Punch” is the single from their upcoming deluxe repackage The 2nd Album Repackage ‘NCT #127 Neo Zone: The Final Round,’ out digitally May 19 via SM Entertainment Co., Ltd. with Capitol Music Group/ Caroline. Physical albums will be released June 12 in the U.S., and preorder is available HERE.

In addition, as a result of receiving the most fan engagement during the group’s Neo Zone Chart Show—which showcased previews of the original album’s tracks before they were released—NCT 127 will perform the fan-favorite song “Boom” for the first time ever. After massive numbers of fans crashed the Neo Zone Chart Show website, NCT 127 – Beyond the Origin can expect the same online reaction and excitement.

For the safety of fans, artists, and staff, NCT 127 have indefinitely postponed their North American headline tour dates, formerly scheduled to begin at Madison Square Garden in New York City on June 5. Due to the uncertain circumstances and the inability to confirm future dates at this time, customers who have purchased tickets will receive a full refund from the point of purchase.

As an alternative, NCT 127 – Beyond the Origin provides fans with a way to enjoy their live show from the safety of their homes. Following the group’s completely sold-out 2019 arena tour, viewers can look forward to an outstanding performance showcasing unparalleled camera work, digital fan interaction, AR technology, 3D graphics augmented in real-time, and a variety of virtual, colorful backdrops. Broadcast on Naver’s V LIVE app, Beyond LIVE introduces a new era of live shows and highlights a growth potential for the concert business. While most offline concerts of popular K-pop groups draw an average audience of 10,000 people, K-pop colleagues SuperM’s April 25 Beyond LIVE show, SuperM – Beyond the Future, brought in upwards of 75,000 paid viewers.

The 2nd Album ‘NCT #127 Neo Zone’ debuted on March 6 at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 and quickly made its way to the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Top Albums chart and the No. 2 spot on Billboard’s Artist 100 chart. The music video for the album’s first single, “Kick It,” has over 45 million views, standing out among an album “…full of tracks that showcase NCT 127’s diverse skillset, shining a spotlight on each of the members’ artistic strengths as performers and songwriters,” according to Billboard. “Neo Zone is NCT 127 at its best. It checks off all the boxes,” said Consequence of Sound. Rolling Stone said, “The ability to seamlessly slide in and out of genres while experimenting with different sounds is what makes NCT 127 stand out among a crowded field of competitors.”
