The Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, and the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, were inducted into the Apollo Legends Hall of Fame at the Apollo Theater’s 2010 Spring Benefit, a star-studded affair dubbed “Evening of Legends.”
“Michael was the King, the true King of Pop,” said actor-comedian Chris Tucker who accepted the award on behalf of the Jackson family, just shy of the one year anniversary of his death.
Tucker also reminisced about their trips to the mall, “We would be walking and people started to notice that he was Michael Jackson and all of a sudden I turned into his bodyguard.”
