Etta James passed away Friday, and the world lost one hell of a lady. Many people have dubbed James as the first Queen of R&B, and her singing has inspired many artist (including Bob Dylan!).
To put things into perspective for my age group, her classic song “Something’s Got A Hold On Me” is sampled in Pretty Light’s “Finally Moving”. The sample is nice, but it’s got nothing on the original.
Here’s “Finally Moving”, where you can hear her voice throughout the song.
