Two powerhouse vocalists come to the Schermerhorn for an evening of stunning ballads and sophisticated, soul-stirring hits. Beloved for tunes like “Never Knew Love Like This Before” and “I Feel Good All Over,” Stephanie Mills came to fame in The Wiz on Broadway and has been wowing audiences ever since. With his rich baritone and versatile style, Will Downing puts his singular stamp on originals like “A Million Ways” and memorable interpretations of contemporary R&B classics like “I Try.”
