Brooklyn native Stephanie Mills has one of the most distinctive voices in contemporary music, an ultra soulful songstress whose onstage energy and power inspires standing ovations wherever she performs. She is a legendary Grammy and American Music Award-winning recording artist with five best-selling albums and ten Billboard #1 singles.
At the age of 11, it was Stephanie’s big voice that landed her in first place at Amateur Night at the Apollo for a record six times! At the age of fifteen, Mills took on the role of Dorothy in the Broadway musical The Wiz, which later led to an illustrious recording career.
Throughout the years, Stephanie has distinguished herself as an actress and performer who is at home on Broadway as well as the recording studio. Hit records such as I Never Knew Love Like This Before, Home, Whatcha Gonna Do With My Lovin, Comfort of a Man, Sweet Sensation -- all are essential classics.
Mills latest album is entitled Breathless. The lead single from the new album is a version of the Lennon and McCartney standard Yesterday, which Mills recorded in memory of her old friend Michael Jackson and for others like Gerald Levert, Teddy Pendergrass, Luther Vandross and Robert Brookins.
On Wednesday, January 26, Stephanie Mills rings in the new season of Amateur Night at the Apollo.
