Vanessa Williams

We crack open the Soul Closet today with this 1988 dance hit by Vanessa Williams. Just four years earlier, folks were reading the last rites over her career in the wake of her having to give up her Miss America crown when those nudie pix got released.

But this video marks the beginning of her second coming as entertainment force. Between then and now, she's starred and co-starred in major motion pictures, hit TV shows, and has been a presence on the pop music charts. Shoot, the girl has even sung with Pavarotti.

And--as this video shows--she can also Cabbage Patch down a flight of stairs like nobody's business.
