The funeral for ordained minister, Denise Katrina Matthews will be held on Saturday, February 27th, 2016, 11 a.m. at 33700 Alvarado-Niles Rd, Union City, CA. The service is open to the public. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Jesus Christ for all Nations.

Denise Matthews died Feb. 15, 2016 at a hospital in Fremont, Calif. She was 57. Gisela Hernandez, spokeswoman for Washington Hospital Health Care System in Fremont, CA, confirmed her death. The cause was due to a long battle with kidney-related health problems.

As the former artist and actress known as Vanity, she performed with Prince and appeared in the films, “Klondike Fever,” “The Last Dragon,” and “Action Jackson” in the 1980s and early 1990s.

“When I was Vanity, it was all about me,” Matthews said in 1999. “But when I’m preaching the word of God, it’s Jesus Christ speaking through me.”
