I heard that Beyonce sang "At Last" at Barack & Michelle Obama's first inaugeration dance. And that Etta was pissed off! She did not approve of him, and didn't want her song sang then.

today during a news announcement, they were talking about Etta's passing and playing her song, .... being sung by Beyonce. Where is the common sence?!

Sorry, Jessie, here is the real story and her feelings about Her song.


I really would love to know where you heard what you posted.

She disliked Beyonce, not Obama.

Have you noticed Roy you can write a story about Ice Cream and someone will make it political.

I can remember hearing Etta sing on the radio long before we had television. I always loved her singing. I have many of her songs, I don't care much about her one song "spoons" it seemed she was singing about her drug habit..

There's a movie out about her life, I watched it a couple years ago.

She had a great voice and she will be missed along with another blues singer Amy Whinehouse. I have a lot of her songs to.

I won't make this political. I just want to say that We can find many many things in the world wide web, but sometimes It reminds of of that game, I got a secret.

One person whispers a secret in another person's ear and they pass the message on down the line and by the 10th person, the message has been totally changed.

We all leave out key words, some facts and wish for everyone to have our point of view.

My dad used to say. Don't believe anything that you hear and only half of what you see.

We are all witness to the traffic accident that is affecting our nation and it isn't political, it is much deeper than that.

Etta's voice could take your breath away. She was the singer of romance and daydreams.
