The Bed-Stuy born and raised Stephanie Mills racked up accolades in the 80s and 90s, scoring multiple gold and platinum albums, No. 1 R&B hits, and Grammy awards. But she’s perhaps best known as the first Dorothy in the original Broadway run of the Afro-centric Wizard of Oz remake The Wiz—the play’s showstopping number “Home” has long been her signature song. She’s joined at SummerStage by Keni Burke, originally of the Five Stairsteps, and producer of everyone from Bill Withers to The O’Jays, The Whispers to Keith Sweat, but it’s his 1982 hit “Risin’ to the Top” that has been sampled by a plethora of rappers in hip-hop, including Big Daddy Kane and LL Cool J. Spanish Harlem’s own Remix King Ted Smooth DJs to kick off the night in Coney Island.
