Vanessa Williams Daughter Following Her Mothers Footsteps As “Lion Babe” A Neo-Soul Group:


Like Mother Like Daughter, But. .. Not Really.

     Jillian Hervey, also known as 1/2 of the Neo-Soul group Lion Babe is the daughter of the legendary Vanessa Williams, actress, singer, and the first Afrikan American to be crowned Miss America! She is also the daughter of known industry manager and executive lion-babe-lucas-goodman-theblackmedia-2016producer Ramon Hervey who managed some of the worlds greatest artist like Natalie Cole (RIP), Little Richard, and Babyface. Coming from two parents in the industry, Vanessa being a singer with an internationally successful music career and distinct voice and ability and a father who knows how to put things together, Jillian Lion Babe Hervey gets it honest, but no need to compare the two, Lion Babe is in their own lane.

     Before the HOT97 interview, I had no idea of Lion Babe, which also features Lucas Goodman who is the producer of the group, but after watching videos, I was thoroughly intrigued. No one wants to live in the shadow of their super famous parent(s), and if I hadn’t done research, I would’ve never known she was an heir to royalty. Oddly, it truly doesn’t matter! Lion Babe has set themselves so far apart from what could’ve easily been, “hey guys this is my daughter support her”. The music Lion Babe makes, the themed group reminiscent of the 80s style groups, the look, its different and very modern. brings you Lion Babe:

With a record deal, millions of views online, fans and supporters, Lion Babe looks like they are here to stay! #SOULdiers what do ya’ll think?

  1. I’m sure her parents helped her with money. And I’m sure the record label knew who she is. So… Whatever…

  2. I’m wishing them success.. She definitely doesn’t carry her mother’s sound. I actually like the song I just listened to. She reminds me of a couple of people but I wont mention names.. Her voice is her own.

  3. So what youre saying is. If your parents do what they are supposed to do, are financially stable as all parents should be when they have kids, own successful businesses that theyre not supposed to help thier TALENTED children be a success too? Even if the label knew…she is talented and most people had no idea she is Vanessas daughter so seems like shes SELF MADE. Your bitter comments are not welcome here…..smfh

  4. I accidentally stumbled across the Lion Babe project on iTunes Music a couple of weeks ago and I LOVE THE WHOLE THING!!! I had no idea this was Vanessa Williams’ daughter, but after watching the video I can definitely see the physical resemblance. Jillian is most certainly her own artist, with her own voice and sound, and her own story to tell. I’m a new fan!!

  5. Absolutely! And what a great story thanks for sharing! She is a Queen in her own right, building her own lane.

  6. Gorgeous girl… Just needs some styling tips to define her own path. She looks like Beyoncé circa 2010 and her voice is a striking resemblance to Erika Badhu. If she could start over, before she’s really known; restyled, new sound she could go very far.

  7. So what you’re saying is, if your parents did what they were supposed to do, build wealth and business’s or relationships to make sure their kids dont go through the same things they went through you wouldnt help your kids dreams come true?! LMFAO yea ok…More Hating

  8. Negative to this band’s sound. It is too much like Erykah. That “fire” song is a straight vocal rip of Erykah Badu’s “Honey” – just listen to them back to back. Blatant plagiarism and her rendition of “Bag Lady” sucks. I hope they get sued.

  9. Their sound is great, Erykah Badu’s sound comes from the producers and executives she’s worked with. ..I dont hear the similarities and I have a degree in Music, but why would you hope someone get’s sued?! What kind of Human being do you have to be, to not like someones music that you go that far to hope someone gets sued which can ruin a persons life. The hell is wrong with you?

  10. I dont have a musis degree, but I am a lifelong singer and Badu fan. Erykah’s influence weighs heavily on her vocals here. Her tone and every nuance are children of Badu aka Low Down Loretta Brown. Even more so than the production! I love it though…Lion Babe sounds and looks great!

  11. I really like what I just heard…Made me go and download some other songs by them to really check them out! She’s beautiful and sounds great no matter who her mother and father are…Rock out Queen im listening!!

  12. I gotta listen with my good ear then because I truly do not hear it LOL!!!!

  13. Update! I have listened to their whole album now and im HOOKED!! Love love love Lion Babe!! Gotta see if they have any up coming shows in my city!!

No Gossip, No Rumors, No Negativity!
