Etta James Dies at 73

Etta James has passed away due to complications from leukemia at the age of 73.

The singer was diagnosed with leukemia in 2010, and also suffered from dementia and hepatitis C, according to CNN.

“This is a tremendous loss for the family, her friends and fans around the world,” Etta‘s longtime manager and friend Lupe De Leon said. “She was a true original who could sing it all — her music defied category.”

“I worked with Etta for over 30 years. She was my friend and I will miss her always,” he added.

We send our condolences to Etta‘s family and friends.
