Etta James, the legendary voice behind "At Last," has died at the age of 73 from complications related to leukemia, according to the Associated Press

"This is a tremendous loss for the family, her friends and fans around the world," Lupe De Leon, her manager, said in a statement. "She was a true original who could sing it all -- her music defied category."

James won four Grammy Awards, including a lifetime-achievement award, and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993.

The singer had a number of hits over her more than five-decade career, but she is perhaps best known for "At Last," "I'd Rather Go Blind" and "Tell Mama."
