Vesta who is known for her Top 10 hit songs “Sweet Sweet Love”, 4 You”, and “Congratulations” in the early 80’s, was found dead in a Los Angeles hotel. The cause of death is currently unknown. Vesta was 48 years old.
Vesta was none for her 5’3″ frame and her 6-foot tall attitude. She had a presence that no one could ever forget. Not only was Vesta known for her powerful voice, but she is also credited for her presence in the movie Posse (directed by and starring Mario Van Peebles in 1993) in which Vesta portrayed a sassy saloon singer. She had also became an advocate for the prevention of childhood obesity and juvenile diabetes years after she overcame obesity herself.
My heart goes out to the family of Vesta Williams’ family and friends. Vesta was definitely a household name and will truly be missed.
