Adele pays tribute to Etta James | Music News


The passing of the great Blues & Soul legend Etta James a few days ago left a gaping hole in the hearts of fans worldwide and has seen tributes from many of the people who her music and story influenced, including the likes of Beyoncé and Kelly Clarkson. Global chart topper Adele took to her blog earlier today to deliver a short but sweet message in tribute to the late great artist. Read it below.

“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. Its an honour 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 xxxx” – Adele

Rest In Power Etta James.
