CENTRAL HARLEM — Harlem’s main drag, 125th Street, was transformed into a stage for moonwalkers Monday night as the King of Pop and the Queen of Soul were inducted into the Apollo Theater’s Legends Hall of Fame.

The fervent crowd of fans evoked scenes from the days after Michael Jackson’s death as die-hards moonwalked down 125th Street, sporting black, sequined jackets and images of the superstar’s face in glitter across their shirts.

The pop king wasn’t the only one being celebrated this time. Fans called out to Aretha Franklin — “You look beautiful Aretha!” — as the music legend walked the red carpet outside the Apollo Theater.

“Today, they are being honored and inducted as legends into the Hall of Fame,” said Harlem native Moses Harper, 32, a dancer known for her Jackson moves. “But we all out here know how important they were — are — to music.”

“To us, they are already legends.”

Just two weeks before the first anniversary of Michael Jackson’s death, the Apollo made him and Franklin the eighth and ninth members of the theater’s nascent Hall of Fame.
