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.”.
