Tasha Thomas had her first breakthrough when she casted in the original Broadway production of the classic play The Wiz. She soon earned worldwide critical acclaim for her performance on the play’s album, singing her soulful rendition of the ballad “The Feeling We Once Had”. She provided back vocals on several songs on Slade’s 1976 album, Nobody’s Fools.
