Is Vanessa Williams the most underrated girl ever?

14 posts in this topic

You often hear that Janet or someone else is the most underrated and unappreciated girl we've had in music. However what about Vanessa Williams? She rarely gets her props! It seems not everyone knows she sings either, as they just see her as an actress or Miss America. She is those things but she's a great singer too.

her singing career deserved A LOT more. Such a graceful voice and she's gorgeous of course. Still she had a great career as an actress

No, Teena Marie was and that's not even something to be questioned...I made a topic about it yesterday....Vanessa had what she deserved

I always wondered why was she such a huge flop after that one smash and couldn't sustain her career.

I used to listen to some of her songs, like, ages ago, but I never really looked into it much further. Her acting career >>>

She had two Top 5 hits after and one before Save the Best for Last

I just don't think that music was ever her primary focus. She's always acted, done Broadway, i think she even has a fashion line now. If she wanted to be a musician first I bet she could have.

Yes she is underrated. And was extremely gorgeous. Could have done much more musically, but from what I understand that wasn't even her biggest priority. 

 

This is rnb PER_FEC_TION. :jonny:  Fits right in a playlist between Mariah's Melt Away and Toni's You're Makin' Me High :jonny:
