R.I.P. Etta James - I'd Rather go Blind

Etta James today (20-01-2012) sadly passed away after a battle with Leukemia and this is probably her most famous song. 

There are lots of 'sad' songs out there, but this one can really rip your heart out!

It was sung with so much heartfelt soul that lots of people have tried to cover it, but no one has come close.

RIP

Was going to do Dylan Cover she does great version of 'Gonna serve Somebody' but this is one of my favourite songs of all time....check out Chicken Shack's version with Christine Perfect on vocals...she later joined Fleetwood Mac.

To all graduates of The Brit School and X-Factor and all aspiring 'soul' singers - THIS is real singing. RIP, Etta.
