Happy Birthday, Vanessa Williams

Join us in celebrating the birthday of this talented actress and singer.

On this day, Vanessa L. Williams turns an oh-so-lovely 49 years old.

The former beauty queen has done it all through the years, and this April will release a book co-written by her mother to document the highs and lows of her career. The book, You Have No Idea: A Famous Daughter, A No-nonsense Mother, and How They Survived Pageants, Hollywood, Love, Loss (And Each Other), will take the reader through Williams' rise in the entertainment industry and how her mother was there to support her every step of the way.

This spring, Williams will shoot a new pilot for ABC networks. If picked up, this will be her third television series with ABC. Also in the near future, Williams will star in Tyler Perry's new film, The Marriage Counselor, alongside Lance Gross.

Happy Birthday, Vanessa! Keep making your mark.
