Etta James, "I'd Rather Go Blind"
Etta James excelled at everything from gritty R&B and barrel-house blues to supper club jazz, sweet soul and traditional pop. She put her unique stamp on every song she touched. James could be soaringly romantic, as on "At Last," or achingly wounded, as on "I'd Rather Go Blind." Through it all, she connected with the emotional core of a song and swept the listener up along with her, expressing emotions the rest of us just can't find words for. That's the definition of an artist. Etta James will be missed. -- Nick Dedina, Google Music
