When you hear Stephanie Mills' new CD, Born For This!, don't be fooled by the tales of heartache, pain and betrayal. These days, the diminutive pop-soul veteran is happier than she's ever been. The record, her first in almost 10 years, was released in August on her own label, JM Records, and has been well-received by critics and urban radio. At age 47, the doting mother of a 3-year-old son is in control of her career -- making music that reflects who she really is. And life seems to be more peaceful without the constant pressures of staying in the Top 10. Calling from her home in Charlotte, N.C., Mills says, "I've grown so much.

It made sense to put Melba Moore, Jennifer Holliday, Regina Belle and Stephanie Mills on the same stage Saturday night at the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall. The blustery-voiced singers have managed to survive in an industry that never really knew what to do with them. But beyond that, the women share the same musical foundation: gospel. For three hours, the veteran performers melded their secular and spiritual sides during minisets. Two enthrallingly pulled it off while the other two mostly faltered.

Let's hope the roof stays on the place as Regina Belle, Jennifer Holliday, Stephanie Mills and Melba Moore - four celebrated, mighty-voiced pop-soul singers - command the stage at the Reginald F. Lewis Museum's 2nd Annual Gala Celebration at Meyerhoff Symphony Hall. Combined, the divas possess enough vocal power to threaten the foundation of the hall. The Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History and Culture, in partnership with Comcast, will host the event at 8 p.m. Dec. 11 at the Meyerhoff, 1212 Cathedral St. A pre-gala reception will begin at 6:30 p.m. The concert will also feature a performance by the Morgan State University Choir in honor of its recently deceased conductor, Nathan A.
