Music Moves Me…Etta James

Music Moves Me…Etta James “Something’s Got a Hold On Me”

The legendary Etta James died today, January 20th, 2012 in California of Leukemia.

Today the Music World lost a pioneer whose singing style spanned a variety of music genres.  The first song I remember hearing her sing was “At Last”.  It has been one of my favorites for years.  But “Somethings Got a Hold on Me” is a close runner-up.   Her voice is and will remain unmistakable.
