GlobalGrind is deeply saddened to hear that legendary 1980s singer Vesta Williams has passed away at the age of 48.
It’s being reported that the singer’s body was found in a Los Angeles, CA hotel room and the cause of death is unknown.
Born in 1963 in Coshocton, Ohio, Williams was singing since she could speak, rising to fame in the early 1980s and reaching the peak of her success in the mid-80s.
Williams never had any albums certified gold and never had any Top 40 hits on the Billboard Hot 100, however she scored seven Top 20 R&B hits from the mid-1980s to the early 1990s.
Watch as Williams performs one of her biggest hits, “Congratulations”:
Rest in Peace Vesta.
