    I heard about her being terminally ill not to long ago. We definitely lost one of the all time great voices. RIP. :(

    They don't make 'em like they used to. R.I.P. Etta.

    I was in a band that opened for Etta James back in my jazz playing days.

    Good night, sweet princess

    She did a wonderful version of the The Sky Is Crying. Still a shame the president had such little respect for Etta to invite Beyonce to sing Etta's song at the inauguration.

    Yeah, and she was pretty upset. She performed well until she got sick so I don't see why she wasn't invited to the inauguration. :(
