Etta James, the voice behind the classic number ‘At Last’ has died.
Aged 73, her passing in California comes at the end of a long battle with leukemia, dementia and hepatitis, one week before she was set to celebrate her 74th birthday.
Rising to fame in 1954 as the first lady of Chess Records, her tumultuous life was recently portrayed in the 2008 movie Cadillac Records by Pop star Beyonce.
She is survived by two sons, Donto and Sametto.
Our thoughts are with her family.
