Along with the rest of the world, we can’t get enough of vintage Beyoncé home videos. There’s baby Bey practicing a routine at the start of the Grown Woman video, playing with bees in the Life Is But a Dream documentary, performing on Star Search with her Girls Tyme group, and so many more. The latest video to resurface may be our favorite. At just 7 years old, the pop supernova played the role of Dorothy in The Wiz, belting out Home with her signature theatrical flair.
Of course, newcomer Shanice Williams’s rendition of Home is pretty ***flawless too. Williams joined a star-studded cast, including Queen Latifah, Amber Riley and Mary J. Blige, for The Wiz! Live, NBC’s adaptation of the classic 70s musical. Even Uzo Aduba, who played Glinda the Good Witch, gave a show-stopping performance of Believe in Yourself. Who knew the Orange is the New Black star had such powerhouse vocals?
We can’t wait to buy The Wiz! Live soundtrack on December 11, but in the meantime, we’ll be playing Baby Beyonce on repeat.
