Legendary Singer, Etta James, Passes Away at Age 73

It's a sad day for the music world, as we suffer a loss of one of the greatest voices of all time. Today Etta James was pronounced dead after complications with leukemia. CNN confirms this by saying that: 
"She died from complications from leukemia with her husband, Artis Mills, and her sons by her side, De Leon (her manager) said.She was diagnosed with leukemia in 2010, and also suffered from dementia and hepatitis C. James died at a hospital in Riverside, California. She would have turned 74 Wednesday." (source: CNN)
As a fan of her music and her work ethic, I was quite surprised to hear about her death this morning. She always came off, throughout her career and life, as such a spit fire, that did things her way and didn't give a rat's butt about what other people thought about it. She was a determined and admired woman in the music industry and she will be forever missed. 

Rest in peace darling, your family is in my prayers.
