Brandi Carlile released a cover of “Home.” Carlile’s version of the song from The Wiz musical/film appeared in the latest episode of the Apple TV+ series Ted Lasso.
The Wiz was a 1975 Broadway musical and later a 1978 film based on Frank Baum’s 1900 children’s novel, The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz. Both the stage and film versions featured an all-Black cast. Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, Richard Pryor and Lena Horne were among the stars of the film.
Charlie Smalls composed the music for both the Broadway musical and film versions of The Wiz including “Home,” which is sung by Diana Ross as Dorothy in the film for the finale. Whitney Houston later covered “Home” as did Barbra Streisand.
Brandi Carlile is the latest to tackle “Home.” Carlile delivered a stirring rendition and handled the song’s expansive vocal range well. Listen to Brandi Carlile cover “Home” for Ted Lasso below:
