I’m heartbroken over the news of the passing of Etta James.

Forget “I Will Survive”, that’s for amateurs.

Her music is the ultimate “helps me feel strong when I feel weak.” I have both sat and cried and stood and danced listening to her music.

She will be missed. Through her incredible library, never forgotten.

    Wow. I didn’t know that. That’s too bad.

    I just recently got some of her Gospel recordings from iTunes, including her rendition of the classic “I’ll Fly Away,” a link to which I’ve posted at my web site.

    Some glad morning, when this life is over, I’ll fly away
    To a home on God’s celestial shore, I’ll fly away

    When I die, hallelujah by and by, I’ll fly away

      Hi Frank – Just traveled over to your blog and gave that track a listen. Voice of an angel with a healthy dash of the devil thrown in.

      I’m going to have to find that album. Great stuff.

    I suppose I am a barbarian, but I like Cake’s version of “I will Survive.”.
