Mariama Whyte takes center stage tonight in Lakewood
Homegrown talent Mariama Whyte, who has played leading roles in the Broadway national tours of The Color Purple (“Celie” and “Nettie”) and The Lion King (“Rafiki” and “Shenzi”), is the headliner tonight at Mahall Lanes in Lakewood.
Whyte grew up in Cleveland and is a graduate of Shaker Heights High School and the College of Wooster.
She describes her sound as “contemporary R&B with splashes of world and rock music.”
