A Fond Farewell to Etta James

Etta James

 Born Jan 25th 1938 - Jan 20th 2012
(4 days shy of what would have been her 74th birthday)

Etta James will forever be known for her dynamic version of "At Last".
However, there was so much more to the singer. 
She was full of life - wanting to experience every part to the fullest. 
Some live their lives afraid of stepping out and going against the flow - not Etta - she lived for it.

The thing is too live your dream life is to be unafraid.
That means to be unafraid of success, love, rejection, consequences and other peoples judgements.

 Whenever I hear about Etta James I think of the movie, "Auntie Mame"
“Live! Live! Live! Life is a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death!”
Rosalind Russell

Etta was an amazing woman, she will be missed, but she made the world better and left her light behind for the rest of us to remember her.
