At the writing of this blog...it is pouring rain(seemingly sideways :-) but coming down at a study pace nonetheless. Just coming out of the studio from another busy morning on the Tom Joyner Morning Show, when Sybil Wilkes mentions that R&B singer Vesta(Williams) was 'reportedly' found dead in her California hotel room. For most of the morning the story was unconfirmed- given that the Associated Press nor other reputable news sources had any confirmation (to me a bit odd). She was just on the Fantastic Voyage with the crew earlier this year and Vesta was having a blast....AND NOW NEWS OF HER DEATH!!! Well by now just about everyone has either twitted or post on their Facebook pages about her untimely passing at 53 years old. The music industry and closet friends/fans are understandingly in disbelief as much as I am. What great music and energy she leaves behind, along with an INCREDIBLE SENSE OF HUMOR, and without question will be sorely missed....and goes without saying TOMORROW IS PROMISED TO NO ONE...whatever the cause of death, Vesta was an extraordinary and very talented individual who left her mark with those who loved and respected her....she will forever live on through her music and wonderful memories...what a talent and class act!!!
