RIP Etta. A great light has left the world.

via New York Times

I have a special love for Etta – she is, afterall, the source of inspiration for my blog’s title.

Here’s a Youtube list of some of her finest, in case you need a way to mourn:

Here’s one for my friend, Sumit.

Finally, check out this album (3 volumes) on Spotify:

Etta James – Heart & Soul A Retrospective

I’ll probably take to wearing all black in her honor.  And no, I’m not kidding.
