Etta James Songs: 'At Last,' 'Dance With Me Henry' & More (LISTEN)

Etta James's doctors announced on Friday that she is terminally ill with cancer. Her songs, however, will last forever.

A six-time Grammy-winner and Rock & Roll Hall of Famer, James put out a long string of all-time classic hits over a career that stretched over 50 years. She experienced a series of ups and downs, both personal and professional, but from her first hit, 1955's "The Wallflower (Dance with Me, Henry)" to a flurry of 60s smashes that included "Spoonful," "All I Could Do Was Cry," the iconic "At Last," and "Something's Got a Hold on Me," James secured her legacy as one of the greats.
