Legendary R&B vocalist Vesta Williams died last week of a possible drug overdose in a southern California hotel room. The fiery songstress had hits such as “Sweet Sweet Love” and “Congratulations”, her music set your soul on fire and took you on a journey of love and reflection. We’ve lost too many female R&B icons whose lyrics brought us through our own personal struggles and although they are no longer with us, their music will live on to serve that purpose. These ladies left an indelible mark in the music industry and will also be remembered for their style, glamour and timeless beauty. Vesta Williams, Phyllis Hyman, Aaliyah, Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, gone but not forgotten.
