Etta James 1938-2012

I was very sorry to learn of the passing of such a great talent on Friday. Her powerful, earthy, and emotional voice has been a favorite of mine since I was a teenager. Classics such as “At Last”, “Stormy Weather”, and “A Sunday Kind of Love” have been very poignant in my life, providing the soundtrack to some of my most beautiful memories.

  1. I am soooo sad about this legend passing. She will indeed be missed. I have always loved her voice (my favorite song of all is ‘I’d rather go blind’) and was fortunate enough to see her perform live in my hometown just over 2 years ago. INCREDIBLE. That was also the weekend my Italian and I fell in love. A magical coincidence.

  2. That is a great (sad) song Kasia…need tissues for that one! You are SO lucky to have seen her live…what a magical coincidence indeed! :)

  3. Me too :( Her songs were present in every stage of my life thus far and they will continue to play a role. A brilliant talent never to be forgotten!
