Sad day in the music world.

R&B singer Vesta Williams was unfortunately found dead in her L.A. hotel room yesterday. The 80s R&B diva was responsible for such hits as Congratulations, Once Bitten, Twice Shy and You Make Me Want To (Love Again). She was 48-years-old.

No details explaining the circumstances of her death have been released yet, however many of her famous friends have sent their condolences via Twitter in remembrance of their friend (see below).

We send out our own condolences to her friends, family and fans on this tragic day. She will be missed.

UPDATE: The police have announced that "several bottles" of prescription pills were found on the scene at Vesta's hotel. Her death is now being treated as either an accident or suicide. Homocide is not being considered.

So sad.

    We live in such a THROW-AWAY society; where people can't get help for their problems without being labeled for life as INSANE, ADDICTED, or ALCOHOLIC….

    I remember her best as Monica from Sister, Sister. I had no idea she had such a beautiful voice. What a shame to have lost her this soon.
