The Wiz is a beautiful, spectacular film from 1978 with an all star cast to rival any: Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, Nipsey Russell (hilarious man!), Richard Pryor, and (of course) my much beloved Lena Horne. And, honestly, that’s just “some” of its star power.
If you’ve never seen this musical/fantasy, do yourself a favor and catch is asap. You can find The Wiz on Amazon – it makes an outrageously fun addition to any dvd collection.
In the video below, the wonderful Lena Horne sings Believe in Yourself. Mesmerizing!
