Just saw that Etta James passed away today. She was a special talent. Coincedentally (or not), the bandleader who discovered her - Johnny Otis - passed away on Tuesday of this week. The great ones are leaving us, folks.

I just saw this too. My wife and I danced to "At Last" at our wedding (cliche I know, but still a great song for the occasion). Etta was an original and giant.

We are losing a lot of great ones in the past few years. Etta had a gift that she shared with the world and I thanks her for that. RIP You will be missed!
