Etta James 1938-2012


Etta James passed this past week at the age of 73! The iconic singer had suffered from leukemia, dementia, and hepatitis C. Word is her records have soared 378% since her death!
In the film ‘Cadillac Records’ Beyonce played the singer and we got a inside look into her struggles. Etta was quick to comment after Beyonce famously sang ‘At Last’ for the First Dance at the 2008 Obama Inauguration. Even though she didn’t sing herself we will always remember the originator of that song from the historic inauguration.
Here’s her signature song from 1961


May she rest in peace at Last.
