Last updated August 15th, 2018 by Shanice Williams

Shanice Williams won our hearts and a permanent place on our iTunes with her performance as Dorothy in NBC's Emmy-nominated The Wiz Live! Now, the captivating singer and actress makes her off-Broadway debut in the new play with music Little Rock

, which tells the story of the historic Little Rock Nine, the first black students to attend their city’s formerly segregated Central High School. Shanice (who is also working on a Gospel EP) dropped by the studio recently to enthrall us with performances from Carousel, Show Boat, and Children of Eden. Check out the video, and don't miss your chance to see Shanice Williams live in Little Rock at off-Broadway's Sheen Center through September 8.
