Vanessa Williams is one of the most respected and multi-faceted performers in entertainment today. She has conquered the musical charts, Broadway, music videos, television and motion pictures, and has sold millions of albums worldwide. Vanessa has also achieved widespread critical acclaim as an actress on stage, in film and on television. In June 2009, Vanessa releases her thirteenth album and debut for Concord Records entitled THE REAL THING. The collection marks a return to her love for the rhythms of jazz and Latin music, an integral part of her musical roots. In addition, THE REAL THING delves into the sophisticated pop and R&B that have been the hallmark of her dynamic musical career. From the two new songs penned for the CD by Babyface (“Loving You” and “Just Friends”) to “Hello Like Before” by Bill Withers to Stevie Wonder’s “The Real Thing” to Babel Gilberto’s “Close To You,” THE REAL THING taps into the wide breadth of Williams’ musicality and artistry. Vanessa’s albums “The Right Stuff,” “The Comfort Zone and “The Sweetest Days” earned multiple Grammy nominations and have yielded such classic hits as “Save the Best For Last,” “Dreamin,” “Work To Do” and “Love Is,” and the Academy Award-winning single “Colors of the Wind,” from Disney’s “Pocahontas,” among many others. Her recordings also include two holiday albums, “Star Bright” and “Silver & Gold,” “Vanessa Williams Greatest Hits: The First Ten Years” and “Everlasting Love,” a romantic collection of love songs from the 1970’s. Vanessa made her film debut in 1986 in “Under the Gun.” She has starred in such features as “Eraser,” “Hoodlum,” “Soul Food,” “Dance With Me,” “Light It Up,” “Shaft” and “Johnson Family Vacation.” She starred recently in the independent features, “My Brother” and “Somebody Like You” and co-stars in Disney’s new feature film, “Hannah Montana: The Movie.” In 2007, Vanessa achieved a career pinnacle, with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for her accomplishments as a performer. Her charitable endeavours are many and varied, embracing and supporting such organizations as Special Olympics and many others. This album is going to be submitted to radio from Monday the 8th of June 2009; we are going to target all adult contemporary stations and some key talk stations with this album. All key and relevant magazines, newspapers and websites are going to be targeted with this album with the aim of getting reviews, features and do some album giveaways. A video of “Just Friends” is going to be sampled our relevant stations and shows which play this music which include MNET Sound check, SABC3 fillers, Channel O, Mnet and on Music Lounge. We are going to request phoner interviews with Vanessa Williams for 5 key media.
