The incredible Stephanie Mills first launched to stardom when she created the iconic role of Dorothy in Broadway’s The Wiz in 1975.
As part of NJPAC’s annual celebration of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., she’ll perform hits from her five gold albums, including:
- “I Have Learned to Respect the Power of Love”
- “Something in the Way (You Make Me Feel)”
- “Never Knew Love Like This Before”
- And, of course, the soul-stirring anthem “Home” from The Wiz
Mills has been dazzling audiences since she was 11 years old and won Amateur Night at the Apollo for six straight weeks. In 1981, she won the GRAMMY Award for “Best Female R&B Vocal Performance” for “Never Knew Love Like This Before.”
Tonight, she’ll be joined by The Whispers, one of the longest-running R&B supergroups ever to grace the stage. Now celebrating over 50 years in the industry, The Whispers are known for their smooth, soulful ballads.
