Legendary singer Etta James passed away this morning after fighting a long battle with Leukemia.
The music legend had classics such as “At Last”:
“Tell Mama” (My dad always tells me that my grandma used to sing this to him):
And my favorite, “I’d Rather Go Blind”:
In January 2011, it had been announced that James was diagnosed with Leukemia. In early December, she was under 24-hour care…and on January 5th she was released from the hospital. Fifteen days later and five days before her seventy-fourth birthday, she lost her battle with leukemia and other diseases.
R.I.P. Etta James. She was 73. Gone, but NEVER forgotten.
What is your favorite song from Etta James?
