Biografi

Stephanie Mills (born March 22, 1957) is an American Grammy Award-winning R&B and soul singer, a former Broadway star, and was originally given the title as ”the little girl with the big voice.”

Career

Mills began her career appearing in her first play at the age of 9. Two years later, Mills won Amateur Night at the world-famous Apollo Theater a record six times. The victory lead to her being cast in her first Broadway role, the orphaned child of a runaway slave in the short-lived musical Maggie Flynn.

In 1973, Mills’ musical career began as she opened for the Isley Brothers. A year later, after being discovered by Jackson 5 singer Jermaine Jackson, she signed with Motown Records. Her first two albums failed to generate a buzz as the label couldn’t find Mills’ sound, and she left the label in 1976.

In 1975, Mills’ career took a rise when she portrayed Dorothy in an African-American adaptation of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz entitled The Wiz, where she began dating Michael Jackson. Filled with a more urban style of music and scenery, The Wiz made Mills a star particularly because of her stellar performance of the song ”Home.” It would become her signature tune for years, and would be covered later by Diana Ross for the big-screen adaptation three years later and by Whitney Houston for her dramatic musical performance debut on TV in the early 1980s.

    She should have stared opposite Michael Jackson in the Wiz, the movie would have done better. In the other movie version Dorothy was played by a 16 year old girl. it was horrible casting Diana Ross 34 years of age as a young girl trying find her way carrying a dog? Did South Park ever do an episode of that? Stephanie Mills The original Dorothy for stage, and Michael Jackson were both nineteen years of age.

    LEGEND. She should hold clinic for all these r&b startlets that have come in her wake over the past 33 years. Ms. Mills still sells out concerts 20 years past her last major label album and looks fabulous. You all need give her her much deserved flowers while she can still smell them!

    Is it true that she's trying to develop a super group with Chaka, MJB, and Aretha?
