The mother/daughter team grace the cover of our latest issue.
ESSENCE's January cover features actress Vanessa Williams and Lion Babe singer Jillian Hervey, one of entertainment's sweetest mother/daughter duos.
In our behind the scenes video, Hervey praises her mother, calling her "the most beautiful person I've ever seen in my life."
"My mom's taught me so much about being a woman. A lot of the things that I've learned most is just by example," she continues. "I've seen how she treats people. She's on time, she's respectful, she's very humble, and she understands what other people have to do and their roles, and I think just having that understanding and treating people how she would treat herself and her family, I think that just speaks volumes."
