NEW YORK (AP) - Isn’t it lovely? The Apollo Theater says singer songwriter Stevie Wonder will be inducted into the New York City institution’s Hall of Fame.

The theater announced Wednesday that the songwriter of hits like “I Just Called to Say I Love You” and “Isn’t She Lovely?” will be inducted into the Apollo Legends Hall of Fame on June 13.

Past inductees have included Michael Jackson, Ella Fitzgerald and Aretha Franklin.

Wonder got his start at the Apollo in Harlem in 1962 when he was 12. He was known as “Little Stevie Wonder.” A multi-instrumentalist, he also was called a “wonder child.”

The June gala will include a concert and awards ceremony.
