Years later and Coming To America is still as relevant as it was when it first premiered in theaters in 1988. A teen in Benton Harbor, MI decided to recreate the classic comedy apart of her prom this year with fellow students. Teenager Diane Young from Benton Harbor High ended up taking the Coming To America themed prom to another level when she arrived as actress Vanessa Bell Calloway’s character in the original film. Thanks to the internet we have video of the Coming To America themed prom event.
This Benton Harbor teen was crowned prom “queen to be” in dramatic fashion.According to Diane Young’s Facebook page, she and her friends re-created the scene in Eddie Murphy’s 1988 comedy, where Murphy’s character — Prince Akeem — first meets his bride-to-be played by actress Vanessa Bell Calloway.
