Amateur Night at the Apollo

Making A Star Showcase: Special Guest Tank
Wednesday, Sept 21

While making his seventh full-length album, SLP2 [R&B Money/Atlantic Records], Tank posed a crucial question. “What does cutting edge R&B sound like in 2016?” he asks. He answered that question by crafting the long-awaited sequel to his influential 2007 opus, Sex, Love & Pain. That album not only provided a blueprint for the likes of Chris Brown, Trey Songz, and more, but it also debuted at #2 on the Billboard Top 200 and earned a Grammy Award nomination for “Best R&B Album,” while its #1 single “Please Don’t Go” became nominated for “Best R&B Male Vocal Performance.” Following 2014’s Stronger, Tank once again captured a creative spirit that resembled the process behind his seminal third body of work.

The Apollo Theater, in partnership with the Coca-Cola Company, will present Amateur Night at the Apollo: Making a Star, a special showcase performance.  This Amateur Night at the Apollo: Making a Star showcase is the culmination of the Theater’s recent nationwide search for the next Apollo legend. Hundreds of up-and-coming vocalists competed in a special New Orleans audition followed by an online audition component for the opportunity to perform on the legendary Apollo stage, where musical icons such as Michael Jackson, James Brown and Lauryn Hill honed their craft. Five winners were chosen from the crop of hopefuls - Shakar Brumfield (New York, NY), Markus Chatman (Atlanta, GA), Anastia Johnson (Miami, FL), Arrianne Keelen (New Orleans, LA) and Belle Lundon (Houston, TX).
