A Year Prior to Whitney's Death R&B Vocalist Vesta Williams dies

She was an R&B singer that could leave you feeling speechless with her 4 octave voice range.  She was best known for a song entitled, Congratulations.  I am speaking of Vesta Williams.

Now this R&B vocalist died prior to Whitney back in September 2011.  Some entertainment websites tried to suggest that she may have overdosed on prescription medicines like this one.  Her autopsy was completed the same month.  Here's what popular celebrity gossip site, TMZ reported at the time.  See here.

What I find disturbing about this story is Vesta, like Whitney, died in a hotel room with pills nearby.  I couldn't help but think was Vesta's death something that didn't happen naturally.  Some websites, like this one, reported in December she died of an enlarged heart.

Given the recent events with Whitney's death, I have to say that something just stinks.  With so much satanic influence emerging at a rapid pace in black music with the younger generation, I can't help but feel like something sinister is going on behind the scenes.  I also feel like those "old heads" who choose not to conform, and may even go so far as to share inside information with the general public, are quietly revisited by old demons.

Now Whitney Houston Gone...

Since writing about Etta James not that long ago, you can only imagine my surprise when I found out Whitney died. 

Now is it just me, or are our late 80s and 90s R&B artists falling behind the scenes or slipping through the cracks (on purpose mind you,) because far too many modern day artists are simply selling their souls to the devil, no longer by choice, but by force to some degree?  I was thinking of an interview where Whitney exposes "they."  Those who wanted her to do some sell your soul kind of things, I assume, since her comeback.  She wasn't having it.  Here is a link to that interview.  Interesting enough on the same website, friends share personal details about Whitney's gay lifestyle, oh you didn't know?  You can also read about Whitney talking more about Jesus leading up to her death as well.  Here's a link to that article as well.     

I'm looking for patterns more closely in future deaths of celebrities.  I can't help myself.  Being that it is black history month and knowing that many blacks have died in history simply because of many people's racial prejudice, you can't help but want to learn more about all things related to black entertainers since they are like the teacher's pets in our society--used to communicate what the top has to say to the bottom.  I just can't sit still and accept some vague media report about an entertainer especially when I know that mainstream media is known for telling more lies than a celebrity gossip newspaper at your local grocery store!

You have to weed out the lies from the truth.  You can't go spreading the so-called news when you know yourself that you aren't getting all the facts.  However, what will a big paycheck make some do?  Report the news story anyway forsaking all things learned in investigative news reporting 101. Where are the follow up questions, reporters?  Why do you cut off the people when they are on a roll with the truth (like Oprah does and she makes some sudden gestures too to be sure her fellow brother and sister in the entertainment industry doesn't hang themselves on her show (ie. the Whitney and Dave Chapelle interviews for starters?)

So what I am looking for now since Whitney's passing?  Just more in-depth news reporting when it comes to hot topics, I am looking at more patterns in future deaths, slip-ups in the story-telling by more than one media source, vague details with unanswered questions, controversies surrounding the death, actions prior to the death, symbolism, and anything else I deem newsworthy.

You say, "Well why bother?"  Because I don't like to be lied to by so-called respectable sources, and besides I don't like liars or brainwashed people who choose to debate without taking time to research.  Fact is fact plain and simple.  Besides, shooting the legitimate messengers are not going to keep the truth from going forth.  Stand for truth fellow bloggers!
