Fresh off the heels of NBC’s The Wiz Live, Stephanie Mills talks to the Tom Joyner Morning Show about last night’s production and her new single with her famous cousin, K-Ci.

“I’m 58-years-old…I could not have played Dorothy. Shanice is absolutely amazing. I was talking to the head of NBC and they wanted to find someone….I just thought she had the essence of Dorothy. She was home from college and just came to the audition for the experience. She’s my baby,” she said.
The three-hour live show will re-air, December 19th. If you missed the making of The Wiz, watch it below.
