I was so sad to hear of the passing of Etta James. Her voice was like butter but she was also a long time humanitarian and an eternal beautiful soul. My Facebook news feed has been full of Etta goodies today, and this one was too good not to share. I think it’s pretty bad ass of her to take a song like “Welcome to the Jungle” and own it. Enjoy!
“You can’t fake this music. You might be a great singer or a great musician but, in the need, that’s got nothing to do with it. It’s how you connect to the songs and to the history behind them.”~Etta James
