[Music Monday] The one and only Etta James.

I was saddened when I finally got around to catching up on the news today to find that Etta James passed away on Friday. She had been struggling with Cancer and Dimentia for a while now, so it is not surprising, but it is sad to hear that another great musician has left us. Etta James truly had one of the most amazing voices I’ve ever heard. She hardly gets the recognition she deserves for her role in influencing music, but she had her in hand in much of what we hear today. We wouldn’t have Beyonce, Adele, Amy Winehouse, etc etc without Etta and her counterparts.

Here’s to Ms. James…. may she rest in peace.
