It seems God needed another blues singer to help out the rest of the incredible choir playing up there, right beside him. Etta has 'at last' been freed from the suffering she so long endured.
While this blog offered tribute to her in December, in a post titled "Etta James: Let Her Touch Your Heart.", a friend gave me some attitude this morning about not giving her another shout out. And he was right...damn, it hurt to say that.
While another Etta taste is always enjoyable, instead I offer my tribute to her. A slice of the blues from Elmore James singing what I feel..."The Sky Is Crying."
Easy journey Etta.
