*Upon hearing the devastating news about the death of singer Vesta Williams this morning, her close friend Bowlegged Lou reached out to EURweb’s Lee Bailey to mourn her passing and to share with us his recent conversations with her.
In the unedited phone conversation with Bailey below, the Full Force frontman – real name Lucien J. George – is overcome with emotion while absorbing the sudden loss of their mutual friend. It’s being reported that the singer’s body was found in a Los Angeles hotel room. The cause of death is unknown. She was 53.
Bowlegged Lou talks at length about the conversation he had with Vesta just days ago regarding a TV One interview he completed last Thursday (Sept. 15) for her upcoming episode of “Unsung.” Lou also talks about an old school concert they just did together, her sense of humor that few people got to experience (she did impressions of Chaka Khan, Tina Turner and even Lee Bailey), and much more.
