R&B star Chaka Khan will be inducted into the Apollo Theater's hall of fame.

The theater announced Thursday that Patti LaBelle and Mary J. Blige will perform in Khan's honor at its June 10 New York gala.

The annual event raises funds for the Apollo's education and community outreach programs.

Khan and Blige received a Grammy Award together in 2008 for "Disrespectful."

Singer-songwriter Lionel Richie and the late Etta James were inducted last year into the Apollo Legends Hall of Fame.

Other previous inductees include LaBelle, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson and Aretha Franklin, to name just a few.

Sarah Jessica Parker will present this year's corporate award to Time Warner Inc.
