Etta James
Gilles Pétard Collection

The soul legend, who was diagnosed with leukemia in 2010, passed away today at a California hospital, according to her manager Lupe De Leon. James, a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member and six-time Grammy Award winner, overcame a heroin addiction and released twenty-plus albums over the course of her five-decade career, but she will of course be best remembered for her wedding-and-Inauguration classic "At Last." Etta James was 73.
