Etta James

Today we remember blues singer Etta James, who passed away early this morning at the age of 73. The “At Last” singer died from complications from leukemia. James powerhouse voice is regarded by many as having bridged the gap between rhythm and blues and rock and roll. She’s won six Grammy Awards and in 1993, she was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. James’s music has inspired a wide variety of musicians and she will be remembered as one of the greatest artists of all time.

Her family tree on Geni is still pretty small. Perhaps you can help build her tree and connect her to over 60 million profiles in Geni’s World Family Tree.
