Mariah Honors Patti Labelle at 75th Anniversary of Apollo Theater

< > New York's Apollo Theater hosted its 75th anniversary fundraising concert and awards ceremony last night on June 8, 2009. The Harlem landmark — a launching pad for such icons as Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, James Brown and Michael Jackson — inducted Quincy Jones and Patti LaBelle into its Apollo Legends Hall of Fame. Mariah came to help celebrate the iconic venue’s anniversary and to honor her “Godmother”, Ms. LaBelle. Mariah joined Prince on stage to present the award to soul icon Patti LaBelle. In her introduction speech, Mariah thanked Patti for not only sharing her gift of music but for sharing her gift of friendship with her for all these years.

Below are pictures of Mariah at the event. Watch footage from the red carpet arrivals on ET and Fox NY.
