The Mother's Day Weekend Concert with The Whispers & Stephanie Mills
Marquee Concerts in association with Live Nation presents a special Mother’s Day themed show on Mother’s Day Weekend at NYCB Theatre at Westbury on Saturday, May 11 at 8pm. The classic R&B show has become an annual tradition. This year’s event features a double bill with the legendary R&B quintet, The Whispers and soulful Grammy-award winning songstress, Stephanie Mills.
The Whispers, a veteran R&B group with an impressive legacy of hits, celebrate over five decades of beautiful, enduring music. As one of R&B music’s most beloved vocal groups, they began their legendary career in 1963, producing a string of hits over the course of 40+ years, including “And the Beat Goes On,” “Rock Steady,” and “It’s a Love Thing,” among others. The quintet emerged as the leading romantic singers of their generation, racking up one gold album after another and charting numerous R&B hits spanning more than 3-dozen albums.
Rising to fame as "the little girl with the big voice" starring for 5 years in the hit Broadway musical, "The Wiz," Stephanie Mills has become one of the most distinctive voices in contemporary music. The Grammy and American Music Award-winning recording artist, with her ultra soulful sound and captivating onstage energy, has had five best-selling albums and ten Billboard #1 singles.
