RIP Etta

For those of you, like me, who love the blues. RIP Etta James

I'll miss her too.
The last dance I ever had with my late husband was to her beautiful song "At Last" at our 40th anniversary party. She had a voice beyond compare. Rest in Peace, Etta.


Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

RIP, Etta!

Thanks Jim that the first time I have seen Eta with one of my heroes BB King and judging by the horn section it was in the mid 80s.
The Lady is at peace.

It's doubly sad that the recent death of her early sponsor, Johnny Otis, went relatively unnoticed.

So sorry to learn of her death. She was a real talent.

It's interesting, though, that one of my grandsons has a kitty that he named Etta James Cereal. I get the Etta James part, but the "Cereal" slays me.

So sorry to hear of her passing. I grew up with the sounds of jazz, blues and big bands as my Dad loved them all. Etta James was one of both our favourites. When I go see him today I know he too will be saddened.

Living gluten/dairy/sugar/fat/caffeine-free and loving it!
