The skies above are a little more blue today following word that music legend Etta James hasdied.She was 73.
The singer was best known for singing the blues and jazz,她最大的打击,hands down,was "At Last," which is a wedding staple as well as a Hollywood favorite.Memorably,her version of the song was used in the 1998 movie *Pleasantville *with Tobey Maguire and Marley Shelton.
It was such a beautiful scene...Remember?
A year later,Etta performed her biggest hit onDancing with the Stars.Her voice was just about as strong as it was years earlier,don't you think?
The last couple years of her life she suffered from various health problems,including an Alzheimer's disease diagnosis in 2009 and then leukemia earlier this year.然后今天早上,with her family by her side,she passed away.
