January

etta-james-story-top.jpgCNN is reporting that legendary R&B singer Etta James, who had been diagnosed with leukemia, dementia and Hepatits C, has died at age 73.

TV viewers got a healthy dose of her signature hit At Last every time American Idol aired an audition episode, as so many aspiring singers tackled the song she made into a worldwide hit in 1961.

For a taste of her skill, check out her appearance with Chuck Berry in the film Hail Hail Rock n' Roll.
