Human Nature arrives at 80th Anniversary of The Apollo Theater in New York City on June 10, 2014
Las Vegas headliners and Australian singing sensations Human Nature were part of musical history on Tuesday, June 10, as they took the stage during The Apollo Theater’s Spring Gala, which celebrated 80 years of iconic performers and legendary performances. 

Departing from its tradition of inducting legends into the Apollo Hall of Fame, this year’s Gala celebrated the eight decades of artistic brilliance that have been presented on the Apollo stage since 1934. Human Nature represented the Motown era during the star studded event, performing a 15-minute hit bound set featuring tracks such as “My Girl”, “Ooh Baby Baby” and “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.” The event was hosted by Emmy Award-winning and Grammy nominated entertainer Wayne Brady.

“Smokey Robinson told me about Human Nature and said they sing Motown like no other young singers he’s ever heard today. And he is right.” said Apollo Theater Spring Gala producer Ron Weisner. “We are thrilled to have them perform these iconic songs and help the legendary Apollo Theatre celebrate 80 years of entertainment. They demonstrate to all of us just how timeless the music of Motown is – and how it touched people in all four corners of the world.”

During the event, several artists took the stage, including Gladys Knight, Natalie Cole, The Isley Brothers, Wayne Brady, Savion Glover, Joss Stone, Matthew Whitaker, Edwin Hawkins, and Doug E. Fresh in honor of the legendary Theater’s 80th anniversary.

This year’s event raised a record breaking $2.3 million, which will support the Apollo’s year-round performing arts programming, innovative education initiatives, and community programs.

“Tonight was a dream come true, we were literally dancing in the footsteps of legends.” said Human Nature’s Andrew Tierney. “This stage has hosted James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Diana Ross, Marvin Gaye and now four guys from South West Sydney. Our dream continues.”

Human Nature will return to the East Coast in August 2014 with nine concert dates in five cities. In a series of not-to-be-missed tour dates for Motown fans, the group will bring their unique sound to some of pop music’s most enduring anthems. The East Coast tour will kick off on August 6 at The Palace Theater in Waterbury, CT and will continue on to Atlantic City, NJ, Lancaster, PA, Washington D.C. and Boston, MA and will conclude at the Wilbur Theatre in Boston on August 17.
