I am sad to announce that R&B singer Vesta Williams passed away yesterday. She was found deceased in a hotel room in El Segundo, California from a possible drug overdose. She was only 53 years old. Vesta is survived by her adult daughter.

Rest in peace, Vesta. Rare & Obscure Music will never forget you.
