Etta James, singer of "At Last" and "I Just Wanna Make Love To You" (amongst other great soul songs), is battling Leukemia and is fighting to stay alive.
Her representative has asked that her fans pray for her to stay alive to see her 73rd Birthday on Tuesday.
I have to admit, I am not sure I'd wish that on her. While I don't know any leukemia sufferers, I've seen people in the end stages of other cancers, and I wouldn't want anyone to go through what they went through.
On the other hand, it might be nice for her to reach her birthday.
Either way, I hope she is comfortable.
