Etta James: Gone from us

Maybe you only knew her from crossword puzzles: she had that name perfect for 4x4 squares, and if you do enough puzzles you could see her name two or three times a week. But there was a reason they would use words like "legend" or "great".

Etta James died today. She was a true legend and we're lucky to live in a time when her voice could be preserved forever.

Here are five of her songs - You Tube has hundreds.

Sweet Memories:

I've Been Loving You Too Long:

Lie No Better:

Stormy Monday:

Someone to Watch Over Me:
