From complications to leukemia.
Her best known song, "At Last" is rendered in 7 different versions here:

Re: Etta James Passes

Yeah just saw this. Only really started getting interested in her last year, but she quickly became one of my favourites. Only just found out she wrote a book so I'm bumping that up to be one of my next purchases.

Re: Etta James Passes

How weird is it when you read "Etta James Passes" and the first thing that comes to your mind is "At last..."?
