She was recently awarded Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series at the NAACP Image Awards Ceremony. In 1984 she was awarded the Miss America Crown (although it was later revoked). Williams went on to appear in television shows such as Ally McBeal and The Love Boat. Her singing abilities have earned her numerous Grammy Nominations over the years. Her hit songs include Colors of the Wind and Save the Best for Last.
