January 20, 2012 § Leave a comment
Easily, one of the most influential women in music.
If you don’t think you know who she is, Wikipedia that shit! I guarantee you have heard her wonderful voice before or at least heard the countless re-makes of her songs by modern artists such as Christina Aguilera, Beyonce and Adele. Etta James is best know for having bridged the gap between rhythm and blues and rock and roll.
Her voice will stay with me forever. From my childhood days of listening to her voice radiating from the record player and filling our house with her amazing sounds to the entire section of my MP3s with her name on it. You have changed our world of the better Etta James…thank you for bringing us all such wonderful music.
