Singer Vesta Williams Found Dead in Hotel Room


Update #1 (9.23.11-1:00am) I can confirm Vesta has passed. No cause of death yet.

Update #2 (9.23.11-10:40am) Multiple bottles of prescription pills were found in the El Segundo, CA hotel room where R&B singer Vesta Williams died … law enforcement sources tell TMZ. Sources tell us the death is being treated as either an accident or suicide, but not a homicide. The coroner won’t know if drugs played a part in her death until the toxicology reports are in — and that could take 6 weeks. [TMZ]

Update #3 (9.27.11-7:34am) – Funeral Service Information

I’m getting early reports that R&B singer Vesta Williams was found dead in a hotel room in Los Angeles. You may remember Ms. Williams’ Top 10 R&B hits such as “Sweet Sweet Love”, “4 U”, and “Congratulations.”

She was 53. (Story Developing)

My deepest condolences go out to Ms. Williams and her family.  Just last year in May I interviewed her (my first) for this blog.  Here is the link to the interview below:
