Etta James death

It was the time of the mid-1950s when Etta James started her singing career and rose to fame with hits songs like ‘Dance With Me‘, I’d Rather Go Blind, ‘Tell Mama’, Henry, and ‘At Last’, all these songs were penned by her. She achieved 22nd rank in the list of the 100 Greatest Singers of All Time and  62 rank on the list of the 100 Greatest Artists, in Rolling Stone magazine. Etta James was a member of Blue Foundation.

When Etta James was just  five years old,  she took her first professional vocal training lessons at St. Paul Baptist Church in LA from James Earle Hines who was musical director of the Echoes of Eden choir. She changed her musical style many times in her career span. In her initial recording days, Etta James was labeled as R&B and doo wop singer, then she adapted jazz and pop music standards and became a traditional pop-styled singer. Later when she moved into soul and jazz music style, her voice became coarse and deep.

Etta James was an inspiration for many world class artists like The Rolling Stones, Amy Winehouse, Elkie Brooks, Rod Stewart, Joss Stone, Paloma Faith and Adele. In January 2010, she was hospitalized for treatment of bacterium infection caused by MRSA, but her illness became terminal and on 20th January 2012, just five days before Etta’s 74th birthday, she took her last breath at Riverside Community Hospital, California.
