R.I.P Etta James

The Queen of , as I've dubbed her, Dirty Rhythm and Blues has died today. She was only 73.
She gave the world not just beautiful songs, like "Sunday Kind of Love" 'Trust in Me", and of course, "At Last", she gave us her ill voice. She remade RnB/gospel music; she turned into something raw, untamed and amazing.

Here's a Sunday Kind of Love, my favourite of hers.
