Then, her stellar performance of the song “Home” as Dorothy in ‘The Wiz’, with an all-star cast which include Michael Jackson and Diana Ross, became her anthemic signature performance . She was touted as ‘the little girl with a big voice’. As she stepped into her teens and early 20s, she also had her taste of Top 40 hit singles and albums.
