She was the first African-American to be crowned Miss America in 1983. And 30 years later, she is as beautiful as ever, as she graced the stage at the Seneca Niagara Casino.


I have always admired her for maintaining a perfect balance of style, sexiness, sass and business savvy. So when I had the chance to interview her before the concert, I was a little nervous and very excited!

But once we started talking, I realized that she is one of Buffalo's own, and then the conversation was much more relaxed and fun. Listen to the full interview below!


Vanessa's daughter Jillian Hervey a.k.a. Lion Babe, sang backup at the concert but was just recently signed to a record deal as a solo artist!
