Deniece Williams, geboren als June Deniece Chandler (Gary, Indiana, 3 juni 1950) is een Amerikaanse soulzangeres die een wereldhit had met "Too much, too little, too late", een duet met zanglegende Johnny Mathis. Een ander nummer dat zij met Johnny Mathis opnam was 'Without Us', de titelsong van de serie Family Ties.

Zij groeide op in een pinkstergemeente waar alleen maar gospelmuziek was geoorloofd en waar zij in het koor van deze kerk zat.

Deniece brak definitief door met het nummer "Let's Hear It for the Boy", dat van de soundtrack van de film Footloose afkomstig is. Andere hits zijn: "Free", "That's What Friends Are For", "It's Gonna Take a Miracle", "Black Butterfly" en "It's Your Conscience"
