R&B/Soul singer Vesta Williams, best known for her hits "Sweet, Sweet Love", "4 U" and
"Congratulations", was reportedly found dead in her hotel room in Los Angeles
today. Nothing else is known at this point, at least publicly.
Vesta was only 48 years old.
Below is a performance of one of her classics, "Congratulations",
which was from an intimate performance last year.

UPDATE:
TMZ reports:
"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.  "several bottles" were discovered -- some empty...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."
