AP/Jeff Christensen
Etta James performs during the 2006 New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival in New Orleans.
On January 20, 2012 singer Etta James passed away five days shy of her 74th birthday. She began her career as a rhythm & blues singer, bringing to her craft such a boundless talent that her repertoire defied categorization; blues, r&b, rock & roll and jazz were all part of the mix. This week Joel Najman's My Place program celebrates the life in music of Etta James.
