 “Etta has a terminal illness. She’s in the final stages of leukemia. She has also been diagnosed with dementia and Hepatitis C. She’s in a home right now and mostly sleeps. She is under the care of a live-in doctor from Riverside Community Hospital and two others who have placed her on oxygen. Her husband is with her 24 hours a day, and her sons visit regularly. We’re all very sad. We’re just waiting.” - Lupe De Leon, James’ Manager of 30 years

Blue Sky Sends all our deepest love to James + her family. We are hoping to do tribute album with some of our artists + friends. Please email meagan@blueskyandhardrock if you’re interested in contributing your musical talents to the project. 

If you leave a comment on this thread, we intend to use it in the liner notes of the CD unless you specify otherwise. 

Proceeds from the album will go directly to the James family + to Light the Night in support of others with Leukemia.

Beyonce - All I could do was cry
I heard
Church bells ring
I heard
A choir singing
I saw my love
Walk down
The aisle
On her finger
He placed a ring

Oooh, oh

I saw them
Holding hands
She was
Standing there
Wwith my man
I heard
Them promise
Til death do
Us part
Each word
Was a pain
In my heart

All i could do
Was cry
All i could do
Was cry
I was
Losing the man
That i love
And all
I could do
Was cry

And now
The wedding
Is over
Rice, rice
Has been
Thrown over
Their heads
For them life
Has just begun
But mine
Is ending

Ooh

All i could do
Was cry
All i could do
Was cry
I was losing
The man
That i love
And all
I could do
Was cry

This song could not be more perfect for how I’ve been feeling today especially with this shitty weather we’ve been having. Oh Etta, why are you so good for my soul?

All I Could Do Was Cry

I’m partial to the Etta James version, but some people like Beyonce’s better…
