The Legendary Vanity (Denise Matthews) has Died

Vanity has died.

The sultry, sexy siren was the original Prince protege. She was the lead singer in Vanity 6 and later had a successful solo career. She also crossed over to TV and Film like, The Last Dragon and Action Jackson.

She later gave her life over to Christ, freeing herself from drugs and alcohol in the 90s. Vanity went back to her original Denise Matthews. She lived a quiet life with her ministry until she started having health issues. Vanity died from sclerosing encapsulating peritonitis. She was with family.

For me, Vanity was a game changer. She was so bold and beautiful. The way she commanded the stage and screen was legendary to me. I loved her music, her style and her presence. She was everything and I'll never forget the passion she stirred in me.

Here are some of my favorite Vanity songs
