Gisela Hernandez, a spokeswoman for Washington Hospital Health Care System confirmed Vanity’s passing. She was 57 years old, according to her biography on the Internet Movie Database.
Denise will always be remembered for Vanity 6 and movie roles, playing mostly sultry character in movies like “52 Pick-Up” and “Action Jackson.”
The Canadian born singer/actress turned her back on the entertainment industry in the mid 1990s and dedicated herself to her Christian faith, eventually becoming an evangelist.
She was a devout Christian, she spoke with disdain of her former career, saying she had been miserable throughout it. Vanity had been clean and sober, after over coming great odds of addiction, but it was said that she said she was ready to go home last weekend.
Vanity was a wonderful person and will always be remembered. Thank you Denise for all your greatness. RIP!
