Singer Mary “Vesta” Williams Has Died

Vesta Williams, 53, the sultry R&B singer of the 1980s and 1990s was found dead in an El Segundo, California hotel room yesterday.  The cause of death has not been determined.

Vesta (along with Phyllis Hyman, Regina Belle and Miki Howard) never received the acclaim and commercial success worthy of her great talent.  Her hit, Congratulations, the anthem of the long-suffering woman scorned, along with its companion video was a huge hit and a crowd favorite.

So young and so talented.  My prayers and sympathies to her family.
