Lion Babe Singer’s Mother Is Vanessa Williams
Are we the only one’s unaware that one of Vanessa Williams’ daughter is a well-known singer?
One of Vanessa’s daughter’s is Lion Babe singer Jillian Hervey. Apparently Jillian (aka Lion Babe) doesn’t share this information often, preferring to let her talent speak for itself. In a recent interview, she stated,
I never walk into a room and say, ‘Hi! I am Vanessa Williams’ daughter’? It helps me to become more authentic.
This week, Jillian posted a photo of her and her mother at Afropunk with the caption:
Love to mama for coming out to support us once again! @afropunk always is a special show for us so it’s amazing when family is in the building!
Lion Babe is a neo soul duo that formed in New York City. The duo is made up of singer Jillian Hervey and record producer Lucas Goodman.
Following their meeting through a mutual friend, the pair released the single “Treat Me Like Fire” (2012), which raised their profile and led them to sign a record deal with Interscope. Following the signing, the duo released their self-titled debut EP in 2014.
