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.
