Adele Remembers Etta James

| Filed under: Music MinuteAdele

Adele etta james

Etta James was one of the best voices of all-time and she has certainly influenced some of the best voices we hear singing today.

Adele is the latest member of the music community to share some kind words after the 73-year-old's passing, saying:

"What a lady Etta James was. She was the ultimate original. Her voice was breath taking and her songs are reflections we all recognise in some way or another. It's an honor every time I hear her voice. I saw her at BB Kings in New York a few years ago, and it was something I will remember forever. Thank you to Etta James. And I send all my love to her family and friends."

Etta may be gone, but clearly, she'll never be forgotten. Rest in peace!

    I think the world of Adele. The influence of Etta James is quite apparent when Adele sings. I can't even imagine how sad it must be right now for all of the artists who have been profoundly influenced by Etta for their entire lives. Speaking of which, I would just like to point out that Perez has yet to post Christina Aguilera's posting regarding Etta's death. I can't help but think that this is deliberate on his part. You know what, Perez? You fucked up. You seriously–FUCKED–UP. You tried to ruin Christina's life and career in your mouthy, bitchy little blog, and now you're still bitter toward HER because of the fight YOU picked with her! GROW UP! Christina was clearly Etta's favorite "younger generation singer," and Christina has been performing Etta's music and singing her praises since she was in elementary school. Christina's version of "At Last" from her Stripped tour is the most impressive version out there by a LONG SHOT. (As talented as Beyonce is, she doesn't "get" blues grit and improvisation nearly as well as Christina.) This girl has lived and breathed Etta James for 30 years. She didn't just jump on the Etta bandwagon later, like some other famous singers. I just don't get why you clearly still have it out for this woman. It doesn't matter how physically fit you become, Perez, because an ugly soul is a deal-breaker.
