The original “At Last” singer Etta James pictured above with Beyonce has been hospitalized once again however, this time it’s a lot worse! The singer was reportedly rushed to a LA area hospital after having difficulty breathing on her own. Pop the hood for the deets.

The Scoop:

(Reuters) – Grammy-winning singer Etta James, who has been deemed terminally ill with leukemia, has been hospitalized in California and placed on a breathing machine, her long-time manager and friend said on Friday.

James, 73, was taken to the hospital near her home in Riverside, east of Los Angeles, earlier this week because she was struggling to breathe.

“They took her to the hospital. She was having trouble breathing, so they intubated her. She is on a breathing machine and is resting,” Lupe De-Leon, the singer’s manager for 30 years, told Reuters.

The singer has been in failing health for a number of years and suffers from leukemia, kidney disease and dementia but had previously been cared for at her Southern California home.

Her live-in doctor said last week that James was considered terminally ill, and that she communicates mostly with nods and simple words. [source]

Please keep Etta and her family in prayers…….
