‘The Wiz Live’s’ Shanice Williams and Ja Rule Visit New Jersey Shelter


“The Wiz Live’s” Shanice Williams followed the yellow brick road home to New Jersey on Tuesday.

The Rahway, NJ native paid a visit to Harmony House, “a transitional living facility that helps homeless families find permanent housing,” in Newark to hand out Christmas gifts to local kids. Shanice had some help from “Follow the Rules” star Ja Rule.

The unlikely duo made some kids’ Christmas wishes come true when they each rolled out new bikes for them.

The holiday giveaway was made possible by the Godfather of Soul’s daughter Deanna Brown. Continuing her father’s tradition of toy giveaways through the James Brown Family Foundation whose aim is to help those who are less fortunate.

Judging by the smiling faces and hugs they all met the mark.
