The Story Of...Etta James

Etta James died January 20th, 2012, just five days shy of her 74th birthday. Her musical career spanned five decades and her voice is one of the greatest ever heard in popular music. Yet for most of her career she was an outcast, mostly by her own hand - a life of drug addiction and a reckless temperament made success almost impossible, but the last few years saw her finally acknowledged for the great singer she always was.
