US soul singer Etta James, best known for the tracks At Last and for I'd Rather Go Blind, has died aged 73.

It was announced last year that the singer had been diagnosed with leukaemia and was undergoing treatment.

The star began singing in a group aged 14, before she embarked upon a solo career where she signed to the legendary Chess Records label.

She went on to win six Grammy Awards and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993.

Legendary producer Jerry Wexler once called her "the greatest of all modern blues singers".

Sad news. She had an amazing voice.

This is the track that got me into her singing. Just listen to that voice: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HYbRwSjAir4

When speaking of someone who is deceased we conjugate the verb in the past tense.


Now you know.

OT: RIP, frowny face, etc.

Best rendition of "Piece of my heart."

R.I.P. Etta. Thanks for the great tunes.

It was funny on the news just now, they said she had died, then her singing came on with "at last"
Sing me to sleep.
