Broadway veteran and icon Stephanie Mills (Original Dorothy in The Wiz, NBC’s “The Wiz Live”) and the legendary Chaka Khan (The Color Purple) will go head-to-head in the next Verzuz showdown.

Khan made her Broadway debut as Sofia in The Color Purple in 2007 alongside Bebe Winans as Harpo and Zonya Love (Broadway debut) as Celie.

This is bound to be one for the record books. These two no-holds-barred industry titans always have truth to share along with their phenomenal vocals and music and are sure to be a joy to witness together. Find the full announcement via Instagram + a Chaka Khan bonus fact below.
