Stephanie Mills still leaving fans ’Breathless’
Stephanie Mills has been wowing audiences with her distinctive, powerful singing voice for more than four decades, and it is still amazing to believe that such power comes out a diminutive frame that stands less than 5 feet tall.
It seems like yesterday that Ms. Mills presented herself to the world in the lead role of Dorothy in the all black cast of "The Wiz" on Broadway and won the hearts of many that would become longtime fans with the show-stopping "Home," which would become her signature song.
As an actress, BeBe was introduced to film with a lead role in the independent film "Under One Sun" with her character dealing with religious, racial and gender issues. Additionally, she appeared in the campy musical "Devious, Inc" (Australian Film Festival, San Francisco Short Film Fest) also adding additional vocals to the musical soundtrack. Both of these performances led to her selection for a lead role in Aisha Media’s next short film series, "Con-tin.u.um" to be released in 2012.
