This is one of those deaths that you definitely hate reporting on.  Mia Amber Davis was a beautiful woman both inside and outside.  A lot of us know her for the countless photoshoots she's done for Essence Magazine and Ashley Stewart.  She represented us well with both grace and dignity.  It's very sad to see such a promising talent leave this world so soon.  Condolences and prayers to her family.

Mia Amber Davis, a plus-size model and actress who appeared in the film "Road Trip," died Tuesday, one day after undergoing knee surgery. Officials said the 36-year-old's cause of death is still unknown. 

Davis had outpatient knee surgery on Monday at Cedars-Sinai, although the operation has not been linked to her death. The next day, the actress complained of shortness of breath and collapsed on the way to the bathroom, said Craig Harvey of the Los Angeles Coroner's office.

Davis died Tuesday 9:39 a.m. at Kaiser Hospital, Harvey said.

An autopsy is planned for later this week, Harvey said.
