Happy Belated Birthday Etta James!

Yesterday was Etta James’s birthday and one week ago tomorrow Beyonce sang her signature song, “At Last” at the televised Neighborhood Ball. It was wonderful for Beyonce to bring attention to James’ work with Cadillac Records. But some people including myself wondered why James couldn’t sing her own song at the ball? Apparently James would not have been up to it and her son said she was happy with Beyonce taking the song to such an important and historical night.
