The body of the legendary James Brown will lie in state at the “world famous” Apollo Theater in Harlem for fans to have one last look at the man who forever changed popular music.
The theater was where the music icon made his debut more than forty years ago, and is a fitting place for Brown to make his last appearance.
“His greatest thrill was always the lines around the Apollo Theater,” said Al Sharpton, a long time friend of Brown. “I felt that James Brown in all the years we talked would have wanted one last opportunity to let the people say goodbye to him and he to the people.”
