Stephanie Mills, Grammy Award-winning singer and star of Broadway's "The Wiz," will be spotlighted among other Brooklyn-based performers and hosts for Brooklyn Technical High School's Centennial Gala Celebration. Leonard S. Riggio, founder of Barnes & Nobles, serves as Centennial Commissioner.
The gala will be held at The Glasshouse, 660 12th Avenue, Manhattan, on November 19. The cocktail reception is at 6 pm; awards, music and dinner begin at 7 pm, with after-party dancing to immediately follow. The Centennial Gala will pay tribute to and celebrate 100 years of Brooklyn Tech being a leader in education in New York City and the nation.
Riggio is a Brooklyn Tech graduate, Class of 1958, and Denice Clarke (DC) Ware, President of the Brooklyn Tech Alumni Foundation, Class of 1983, announced that an entire evening of Brooklyn-based luminaries has been created to honor Tech's 100th anniversary.
"Bryan Bautista, Class of 2010 and finalist on 'The Voice,' will perform, and award-winning news reporter Jeanine Ramirez (Class of 1988) and acclaimed Pokémon voice actor Sarah Natochenny (Class of 2005) will serve as co-hosts. In a special moment, opera singer La Toya Lewis and composer/performer Akie Bermiss (both Class of 2001) and pop singer Cindy Hospedales (Class 2002) will perform together." While not a Brooklyn Tech graduate, Stephanie Mills is a Brooklyn-born performer who attended another nationally known Brooklyn high school, Erasmus Hall.
