    They don't make them like her anymore. Everyone is a "diva" nowadays.

    I never knew her except through her music....an yet I feel as though I knew her well....that is the sign of a true artist. Her voice and her music reverberates through my head at times. She sang her soul. Good job Etta, you did well with your time here.

    My all-time favorite song as well. She was definitely a true talent....
