Soul legend Etta James is Terminally Ill; Doctor Asks for Our Prayers

According to recent reports, soul legend Etta James is terminally ill.

Today her live-in doctor even released a statement, asking for our prayers.

From the Grio:

“Dr. Elaine James, who isn’t related to the 73-year-old entertainer, tells the Riverside Press-Enterprise newspaper that the singer’s chronic leukemia was declared incurable two weeks ago.

The doctor has cared for Etta James at the singer’s Riverside, California, area home since March 2010.

Elaine James says she’s spreading word of the singer’s ailments so people will pray for her. She says fans know Etta James has been sick ‘but not how sick.’”

Everyone at the Black Youth Project sends their prayers to Ms. James. Our thoughts are with her family during this incredibly difficult time.
