Adele On Etta James: "She Was The Ultimate Original"
The Chasing Pavements star has paid tribute to the late legend on her blog...
Adele has paid homage to the late Etta James, describing her as 'the ultimate original.'
The Someone Like You singer took to her blog to write a message for James - who sadly lost her battle with leukaemia on Friday (20th January) at the age of 73.
Speaking of the At Last hitmaker, Adele wrote: "What a lady Etta James was. She was the ultimate original.
"Her voice was breathtaking and her songs are reflections we all recognise in some way or another. It's an honour every time I hear her voice.
"I saw her at BB Kings in New York a few years ago, and it was something I will remember forever. Thank you to Etta James. And I send all my love to her family and friends xxxx."
