One of the greatest singers of all times has sadly passed away last week. Etta James sang the blues, she rocked and rolled, and of course also sang soul, gospel and jazz. Here’s an amazing performance from 1962. She was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in ’93, the Blues Hall of Fame in ’01, and the Grammy Hall of Fame twice (!) - in  ’99 and ’08.

Her amazing talent and unbelievable voice will be missed forever. We’d rather be blind than see her walking away from us.
