    An action performed or a feeling experienced in response to a situation or event.

    The action of tweeting to pay respects to Etta James in response to her death is a reaction to the news of her passing you IMBECILE.

    Some people really were born without a fair chance at life. I wish you all the best. Thanks and goodbye.

    Christina Aguilera: “Etta James was a force to be reckoned with. A true gift to music and a woman of great spirit and courage.

    Her raw tone and the passion she put forth on a record spoke to me at a very young age and has continued to influence and inspire me throughout my career. She will NEVER be forgotten, her voice will forever live on and she will inspire talent for generations to come.”

    @ Lamone, all comments are nice. Don’t real like Jessie J to be honest after she reportedly got angry at an Xfactor contestant (UK) Misha B for singing her song.

    Anyway, R.I.P. Etta James. You are a legend!
