Vesta Williams R&B Phenomenon was found dead in a California hotel room last night. Vesta was 53 years old. Police have announced that bottles of prescription pills were found on the scene. Her death is being treated as an accident or suicide. Saddened to hear the news about the passing of Vesta Williams. A couple of weeks ago I was looking at The Monique Show and Vesta was one of her guest. She looked fierce and her voice was still on point. She was just as bubbly as she was years ago when she was hot on the scene.
Vesta has had quite a few hits such as Once Bitten, You Make Me Want To Love Again, and Twice Shy but her biggest hit and my all time favorite was Congratulations. Vesta was a true Diva, and a known advocate for Diabetes in correlation with Obesity. She had won the battle of the bulge by changing her eating pattern and incorporating exercise in her daily routine. Vesta lost the weight over 15 years ago and never put it back on. Vesta was a positive, strong upbeat person with a sweet sassy persona. She was a role model to many. I can remember her speaking about Love and how you have to love yourself before you can love anyone else, that always stayed in my head because she was right. Condolences to her family, friends, and fans. She will be missed
