Breaking Through

After returning to Ohio, Vesta moved back to Los Angeles to launch her solo career. As she worked her way up the ranks of the recording industry as a session singer, Vesta lent her four octave vocal range to some of the best singers in the music business, including Gladys Knight, Chaka Khan, Sting, Stephanie Mills, Anita Baker and Luther Vandross.
