Emmy Award Winner Nikkieli DeMone Set for Alfred Preisser and Tracy Jack's Black Nativity Now
DeMone, who is also an ordained Bishop, has appeared on stage in Miss Saigon, Rent, Ragtime, Jesus Christ Superstar, Ain't Misbehavin', Once On This Island, Crowns, The Best Of Both Worlds, Memphis Soul, and Sideshow, among others.

Black Nativity Now is a holiday gospel pageant set inside a fabulous show-biz church in the midst of the famed and scabrous landscape of Times Square, as the show tells the story of the birth of Christ. The piece is presided over by a pastor heavily influenced by the likes of James Brown and supported by a choir of singers and dancers who perform musical sets infused with gospel, pop, funk, and soul.
