Vesta Williams found dead

Written by Nsenga Burton, The Root

EURweb is reporting that R&B chanteuse Vesta Williams was found dead in a Los Angeles-area hotel room.

An Ohio native, Williams moved with her family as a child to Los Angeles, CA where she appeared on television as part of the singing group, "The Williams Sister." As an adult, she moved back to Ohio, joining the group "Wild Honey," led by her cousin, the late Ron Townson of legendary R&B group "The 5th Dimension." After her time with "Wild Honey,” Williams began singing jingles for television commercials for companies like McDonalds, Coca-Cola and Honda. She also worked as a background singer for Chaka Khan and legendary crooner Luther Vandross before making a comeback in the recording industry as a solo artist.
