Sad news has come out today as legendary Blues/RnB singer Etta James has passed away due to complications from leukemia. She died with her husband and sons by her side. The singer was well known for such songs as The Wallflower, Something’s Got A Hold Of Me, and At Last. She was 73.
Since I don’t know much about Etta and her history, I’d recommend you read CNN’s article as it goes in depth into her life and career. But I personally have enjoyed listening to Etta for many years. Her body of work is astounding and the impact she had on the scene is undeniable. Rest well Miss Peaches, you will be missed.
