Good news for all Vesta Williams: Her final album, Seven, will be released in March 2013! According to SoulTracks, Urban Bridgez, and Radio Facts, the official release date for Seven is March 26, 2013 via Stimuli Music/Bronx Bridge Entertainment.

Vesta Williams was a multi-talented singer, songwriter, actress, and comedienne whose solo career spanned over 25 years. Prior to her passing on September 22, 2011, Vesta released six albums. Some of her most popular tunes include "Once Bitten Twice Shy," "Don't Blow A Good Thing," "Sweet Sweet Love," "Congratulations," and "Special."
Troubles on my heart/Things falling apart/The fight in me was slowly dying/But never did I give up trying/To find my moment to shine. ~ Vesta Williams, "Better Days" (2012)
Vesta's latest single is an inspirational, mid-tempo track that lives comfortably between R&B/Soul and Contemporary Jazz. Vesta's voice is warm, endearing, passionate, and angelic. She (re)assures us that no matter what we're going through, everything will get better. Considering the struggles many of us are facing today, these are words we need to hear.
Even though Vesta has passed on, "Better Days" (and the forthcoming album I'm sure) is proof that her legacy will encourage, inspire, and move us forever. (Check "Better Days" out on YouTube.)
Be sure to purchase a copy of Vesta's "Better Days" today and request it from your local Urban, Urban AC, and Contemporary Jazz radio stations. And don't forget to pre-order/purchase your copy of Seven as soon as it's available.
