AT LAST – THE ETTA JAMES STORY // 4 APR
Telling the story of soul legend Etta James ’ turbulent life , At Last features some of her most beloved songs including “ Tell Mama ”, “ Something ’ s Got A Hold On Me ”, “ Sugar On The Floor ”, the heart rending “ I ’ d Rather Go Blind ”, her iconic signature song “ At Last ” and more . Sadly , Etta ’ s frantic recording and touring schedule coincided with her ever-growing addiction problems and over time she not only sang the blues … she lived the blues . Mercifully , her passion for life and strength of character saw her conquer her demons and she continued to record and perform into her seventies .
