We are deeply saddened to hear that singer Vesta Williams has passed away. Details are sketchy at this time, but it’s being reported that the singer’s body was found in a Los Angeles hotel room.
The cause of death is unknown. She was 48.
According to her listing in Wikipedia, Williams was born in 1963 in Coshocton, Ohio. She was originally credited by her full name, but she has also been billed as Vesta since the 1990s.
Although Williams never had any albums certified gold and never had any Top 40 hits on the Billboard Hot 100, she scored seven Top 20 R&B hits from the mid-1980s to the early 1990s.
Watch as Vesta performs her biggest hit, “Congratulations”
