R&B/Soul singer Vesta Williams, who secured fame in the 80’s, was found dead in her California Hotel last night. The cause of death is currently unknown.
Williams, said to be between 48 and 53 years old, scored six top 10 hits on the Billboard R&B chart, including “Special” and “Congratulations,” a song about a woman who is distraught upon learning that her former lover is getting married.
Before Jennifer Hudson became the cover girl for weight lost, Williams accomplished the same feat years back, shedding 100 lbs and going from a size 26 to a 6. According to the Huffington Post, she was an advocate for childhood obesity and juvenile diabetes before her untimely passing.
R.I.P. Vesta Williams!
