Vanessa Williams

Vanessa Williams first rose to fame when she won Miss America 1984, making her the first-ever African American Miss America.  However, due to a scandal, her title would later be revoked and given to the runner up.  Vanessa Williams has also had a successful career as an R&B singer including two Gold Albums, a 3X Platinum, and a Platinum album.  If that weren't enough Williams has been a successful screen, film, and stage actress.  We hope it doesn't shock you when we say our favorite role of Vanessa's is without a doubt Wilhelmina Slater.
