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!
