Etta James gravely ill

Well, this doesn't look good. News has come from America that soul legend Etta James, singer of 'At Last' and 'I Just Wanna Make Love To You,' is gravely ill with leukaemia and dementia.

Her condition was revealed after her husband Artis Mills applied to a Caifornia court for permission to take control of $1 million of her assets. Mills told the court James can no longer sign her own name.

Though 72, Etta James was still performing live as recently as last year. Her 40-year career has seen her win four Grammy Awards.

Let's the soul great has a peaceful few months or years before she heads to the great Harlem Apollo in the sky.
