VESTA WILLIAMS (1957 - 2011)
R&B singer, Vesta Williams passed away on September 22nd. Most people keep asking who she was but I was well aware of this talented woman.
Vesta had a big voice to go along with her big talent but she never achieved the wide acclaim that she truly deserved. She started her music career as a background singer before finally released her self titled debut in 1986 and would go on to record a total of six solo albums. Although Vesta never managed to crossover on to the pop charts but she had six top ten r&b songs including her number one hit, "Congratulations" throughout the late '80's and early '90's.
Vesta Williams was truly a great artist and that unmistakable voice will be missed.
