Etta James: Soul legend dies in California

Post by Martyn20 on Sat Jan 21, 2012 6:22 am

US soul singer Etta James, best known for the tracks At Last and for I'd Rather Go Blind, has died aged 73.

It was announced last year that the singer had been diagnosed with leukaemia and was undergoing treatment.

The star began singing in a group aged 14, before she embarked upon a solo career where she signed to the legendary Chess Records label.

She went on to win six Grammy Awards and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993.

Legendary producer Jerry Wexler once called her "the greatest of all modern blues singers".

Wonderful singer, who will be sadly missed R.I.P.
