Etta James

Singer Etta James– known for her hits “I’d Rather Go Blind,” “All I Could Do Was Cry,” and “At Last” – died today from leukemia complications at a hospital in Riverside, California. “This is a tremendous loss for the family, her friends and fans around the world,” her manager Lupe De Leon tells CNN. “She was a true original who could sing it all — her music defied category.”

Beyonce played the role of the Chess Records signee in the 2008 film ‘Cadillac Records.‘ Hopefully, Beyonce will be able to put their feud aside and attend the funeral.
