The Not-So-‘Unsung’ Life of Stephanie Mills

Few artists can claim a career so storied as singer Stephanie Mills. Although she doesn’t claim the label, Mills is by all accounts an rhythm and blues legend. Her career has taken the Brooklyn-based artist from a role as the original Dorothy in the Broadway production of "The Wiz," to a whopping five No. 1 R&B hits between 1986 and 1989 like "Home," "I Feel Good All Over" and "I have Learned to Respect the Power of Love."
