"Legends: OWN at the Apollo" transports viewers to Harlem, New York, for four nights of soulful performances by some of the biggest artists in music history. Music legends Gladys Knight, Smokey Robinson, Isley Brothers and Earth, Wind & Fire perform the hits we've all come to love while sharing their personal memories of how this historic theater nurtured and developed their careers and friendships.
