At Last -- Etta James

One of the greatest blues singers to have ever lived, Etta James, passed away today at the age of 83. She was known for singing the classic song, 'At Last', a wonderful ballad that was a nationwide smash hit in 1961. Her brash, bold style paved the way for other African-American women to cross over into the mainstream through music.

The cause of death was due to complications of leukemia. She died earlier this morning at the Riverside Community Hospital in Riverside, California.
