Beyoncé Remembers Etta James

Saturday, 21 January 2012 21 Views 0 Comments

Etta James inspired a generation of vocalists. One of her most famous fans, Beyoncé, has issued a statement following the passing of the blues legend. Beyoncé portrayed James in the 2008 film Cadillac Records, for which she was nominated for a Golden Globe, and covered her classic “At Last.”

”This is a huge loss. Etta James was one of the greatest vocalists of our time. I am so fortunate to have met such a queen. Her musical contributions will last a lifetime. Playing Etta James taught me so much about myself, and singing her music inspired me to be a stronger artist. When she effortlessly opened her mouth, you could hear her pain and triumph. Her deeply emotional way of delivering a song told her story with no filter. She was fearless, and had guts. She will be missed.”
