Vesta Williams, Punch TV's Joseph Collins and Mother Love

*From one Birthday Bash to another Birthday Celebration, on December 4, 2010, Vesta Williams did a comeback concert to celebrate her birthday at the Punch TV Network studios.

Joseph Collins CEO and good friend was honored to help usher in the rebirth of Vesta’s career by opening the doors of Punch TV for her thing on stage.  Many guests were in attendance including her mother and celebrities such as Miki Howard, Bebe Drake and Mother Love came out for this historical event.  This event was filmed lived for a television special to air on Punch TV Network some time soon.

Vesta was known for her four-octave vocal range, which scored her six top hits on the US Billboard R&B chart from the mid 1980’s to early 1990’s.  She was best known for her signature song “Congratulations.”

In February 2009 Vesta graced the stage of the Punch Television Network Studios, to sing happy birthday to her friend Joseph Collins at his Birthday Bash, Red Carpet Media Mixer, an event to be remembered.

On September 22, 2011 Vesta Williams passed away leaving us suddenly.  Mr. Collins stated, “Vesta will always be remembered as simply Vesta, a voice that was pure radiance around the world, and I will miss her greatly.  The Lord needed a new angel in his choir, so He called Vesta home.”

All of her friends at Punch TV Network will miss her and we are grieving right along with her family.
