Etta James RIP

Just last week I was listening to Etta James because I was taken by a sample from Flo-Rida's "Good Feelings" (below) and wanted to know more about the amazing voice that carries the infectious hit single. Turns out it was Etta from "Something's Got a Hold On Me." That's how I ended up spending a whole afternoon rediscovering Ms. James and wondering why I hadn't spent more time listening to her music before. Indeed, my late discovery was  too bad for me as James was a huge talent with an epic, gorgeous voice. Her death is a major loss to music, but at least she left behind an amazing legacy.
