54 Below Presents a One-Night Only Concert of Broadway-Bound Musical, “Born for This”

I grew up to the sound of BeBe and CeCe Winans. I wanted to grow up and be just like her, sing like and have the same Gospel career. lol The universe had other plans it seems. But I can't wait t catch this concert highlighting this power duos journey through gospel and secular music and how they found their way to stardom. And now, the Grammy and American Music Award-winning recording artist and Broadway actress, Stephanie Mills will join BeBe Winans and the cast of the Broadway-bound musical “Born for This” for a one-night-only concert on Monday, November 5 at 7 pm and 9:30 pm at Feinstein’s/54 Below (254 W. 54 St.) previewing the music from the original musical. “Born for This” is a universal story for anyone who has ever yearned to find his or her own purpose in life. It follows BeBe, a talented young man from a tight-knit musical family as he grapples with the struggle between his faith and his desire for fame.

 

Over the span of her career, Stephanie Mills has distinguished herself as an actress and performer who is a at home on the Broadway stage in the four-time Tony Award-winning The Wiz (on Broadway in the original company and across the United States in the revival) and as a recording artist with five best-selling albums and ten Billboard #1 singles.  

 

Sharing the Feinstein’s/54 Below stage with Winans and Mills will be director Charles Randolph-Wright (Motown) and members of the cast from last summer’s pre-Broadway tryout in Boston including Maddie Shea Baldwin (Bright Star), Liisi LaFontaine (Dreamgirls), Loren Lott (Once on this Island), Donald Webber Jr. (Hamilton), Kirsten Wyatt (Annie), and Nita Whitaker (Ragtime). The evening will introduce the “Born for This” story and some of the original songs from the Broadway aimed musical, which also played regional engagements in Atlanta, Washington D.C., and Los Angeles.
