Jersey stand up!
Shanice Williams will star as Dorothy in NBC’s musical event, “The Wiz Live!”
The 19-year-old New Jersey native, who beat out hundreds of hopefuls for the role, still can’t believe her dream has become a reality.
This has been my dream forever, but I never thought it would be a reality!
I still can’t believe it. Of course I’ve been a big fan. I had the movie and my dad had the soundtrack and we would listen to it in the car. I also saw the original with Stephanie Mills.
I’ve just been thanking God.
