ORDER NOW! The Wiz Live! Original Soundtrack Is Available For Preorder

It’s official.

The Wiz Live! has taken the cake as the gift that keeps on giving and it’s safe to say there are no complaints on our end. 

As if God knew three hours of unadulterated magic was not enough, he has created a solution to fill the void that will grow in our hearts between The Wiz Live! and The Broadway Revival of The Wiz. And to that I say, AMEN! 

We just got word that Broadway Records is releasing The Wiz Live! Original Soundtrack.  *praise dances*  The soundtrack will be available December 18, 2015 and you’re able to preorder right now! Keep in mind, this will include the new song penned by Ne-Yo and Elijah Kelley, as well as Elijah Kelley singing the song Michael Jackson’s “Scarecrow” made popular, “You Can’t Win.” And again, the church says AMEN!

Shanice Williams leads this all star cast as “Dorothy.” Academy Award Nominated powerhouse, Queen Latifah, takes on the “The Wiz” and Grammy Award Winning, Mary J. Blige, portrays the Wicked Witch, “Evillene”. Rounding out yellow brick brigade, Ne-Yo stars as the “Tinman,” Elijah Kelley (Lee Daniels’ “The Butler”) as the “Scarecrow,” and David Alan Grier as “The Cowardly Lion,” Uzo Aduba as “Glinda The Good Witch,” and Amber Riley as “Addaperle.” 

The ensemble, in alphabetical order are: Chris Borrero, Olutayo Bosede,James Brown IIITa’rea Campbell, Jessica Castro, Kacie GarlandAsmeret GhebremichaelFrankie GordilsKhadija Griffith,Tre HollowayAntonio Hudnell, Carlos Irizarry, Marcus Paul James,Frederic JeanCapathia JenkinsMykal KilgoreTamika LawrenceIndia R.

This news has me easing on down the road as I count down the days until the Dec 3 live event. Until then, I’ll keep rewatching the cast sing Ease On Down The Road:
