Today’s song is yet again another classic. If you think of great music created in the 50s and 60s it is next to impossible to over look Etta James. Her voice was featured with acts who have helped influence modern music today. She shared the stage with greats like Little Richard, Chuck Berry and the Rolling Stones. At the young age of 14, James started a doo-wop group, creating music that reached #2 on the rhythm and blues charts. Despite her early start in the world of music, Etta James was reluctant to sing due to her rough childhood.
I was surprised to find out recently that Etta James did not originally write “At Last” but, I don’t think anyone will dispute that she made Mack Gordan and Harry Warren’s version of the song truly famous.Etta James – At Last by elijahpaul
