Thanks for the music, Etta

Here's a belated "Rest in peace" to a true R&B legend, Etta James, who passed away Jan. 20.

EVERYBODY (including me) loves her signature tune, "At Last," so I thought I'd throw out my other favorite song of hers, a soul classic called "I'd Rather Go Blind." You can hear the original recording here.

Etta suffered the last few years of her life, from Alzheimer's, leukemia and infection, according to news reports. Which is such a shame because she brought so much joy to so many.

I am glad she suffers no more.
