Jheri Curl June: Vesta Williams’ “Once Bitten Twice Shy”

Similar to Monday’s Jheri Curl June inductee, Pennye Ford, Vesta Williams also began her career as a backup and session singer for various artists, including Chaka Khan. Her 1986 solo debut, Vesta, included her first Top 10 R&B hit: “Once Bitten Twice Shy”–which, regrettably, is not an R&B version of the Ian Hunter song, later covered by Great White. But, that would be amazing.

Anyway, we’ll be back tomorrow with more from the ladies of Jheri Curl Music–playlists below!
