Keep On Moving

Vesta's love of music never ceased. When she wasn’t recording her own songs, she sang jingles for major advertising campaigns for brands like McDonald’s, Nike, Baskin-Robbins, Diet Coke and Revlon. She even sang the theme song for the ABC mini-series The Women of Brewster Place, which starred a young Oprah Winfrey, and the UPN comedy Malcolm and Eddie, starring Malcolm-Jamal Warner and Eddie Griffin.
