Shanice Williams took the stage in NBC’s production of The Wiz Live! on Thursday and stunned with her turn as Dorothy, earning particular acclaim for her performance of “Home.” The 19-year-old newcomer inspired new love for the Charlie Smalls-penned song 40 years after it was first featured in the 1970s Broadway production.

The rising star is hardly the first to take on the beloved ballad, however. Ahead, Williams and nine other celebs who have put on impressive performances of “Home.”
