Night & Day — Not only did Williams avoid the jinx, she followed up “The Right Stuff” with the Triple Platinum selling album entitled “The Comfort Zone,” which included “Save the Best for Last,” an international hit that spent five weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 charts.
“That is a song that still really resonates with people. I love being able to sing it every night and hearing the stories from people about the first time they heard it and what it meant in their lives. I am very fortunate to have some great songs to sing but that one is really special.”
Williams continued to crank out the hits throughout the 1990s with three more albums, “The Sweetest Days”, “Star Bright”, and “Next.” She released three more excellent albums at the turn of the century, her last being “The Real Thing” in 2009.
Fans of Vanessa Williams’ music will hear plenty of hits from her recording career, and maybe even a few holiday classics as well.
It will be a homecoming of sorts for Williams, whose mother Helen grew up in Buffalo. Williams is also dating a man from Depew.
“When I get there I am sure the beef on weck and chicken wings will be waiting,” she joked.
