The original diva...

Sadly, on Friday, we lost another incredible voice in the music world.
Etta James was one of the original diva's of women singer songwriters.
She had much struggle and strife in her life and
overcame many obsticles of race and gender.
Her song 'At Last' is special to many people including myself.
It was one of those songs that reminds me 
of the beginning of my relationship with Tom.
Of early days of dating and dancing and quiet romantic getaways.
So cheers to you Etta for keeping the romance alive.

Amen to this... and I hope that, AT LAST, she has found a happiness that matches her beautiful voice.
