Etta to the End

I’m late posting on the death of Etta James. She was incredible up to the end. I saw her perform in one of her last sets, in the past year, when she had to be brought on stage in a wheelchair then transferred to a chair in the center of the stage. She stayed in that chair, belting it out, while continuously massaging her chest with both hands all the while. Her voice: fantastic if not flawless.
