Just saw the breaking news that Etta James has passed away. I'm so thankful that DH and I got to go see her at the New Orleans Jazz Festival a couple of years ago before she got too sick.

Anyone else a fan of hers ? I love any and all music- my playlist will go from Adele, to Eminem, to Garth Brooks, to Pearl Jam, and everything in between, LOL.

I loved her music! At Last has been on my Playlist for a long time and is one of my favorites.
