Etta James 1938-2012

This past Friday, legendary singer Etta James left this world.  Up until May of 2011, I really wasn't much of a blues or jazz fan.  By coincidence, I happened to go to a local blues festival with other artists where I met up with some old friends. 

Although a life filled with torment, James crossed over many musical boundaries.  In only to really getting to know her 9 months before her death, I would say the James was a true original.  I am glad through friends I got to learn and appreciate the talent that we may never see again.  In the above video, James sings Sunday Kind of Love.
