The legendary Etta James, Blues and R&B singer died of complications of Leukemia today, at the age of 73. Her music and raspy, strong, (tell no lying tale) voice resounded loud and clear for us all. She told us how it was and was gonna be. She begged without submission and gave no apologies about “Her” story and how she saw fit to tell it.
Etta’s sexy and sultry sound is the Mother of the voices of today’s Grammy Award Winners and the Heart and Soul of yesterday. We love you Etta.
