Goodbye, Etta

Etta James – whether she was singing blues, R&B, soul, gospel, or jazz, she thrilled us for over 50 years. She was in ill health in recent years, and on a few occasions the media was quick to report outrageous comments without also noting that she had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2008.

But that’s not the Etta that we’ll remember. The Etta that we’ll remember is the singer with the beautiful voice and style.
