Denise Matthews, popularly known as Vanity and Prince’s protégé, was the lead singer of Vanity 6, known for their hit “Nasty Girl” and recognized for their racy performances. She also had an acting career, appearing in a number of movies including The Last Dragon and Never Too Young to Die. But years of crack-cocaine addiction in the late ‘80s caused her life to spiral out of control. After almost dying from the effects of crack-cocaine abuse, she found God, and was born again. She has been very open about her transformation, saying candidly in an interview, “With the devil breathing down my neck, trying desperately to snatch and strangle me from hell, I repented.” She left Hollywood behind and is now an evangelist.
