Etta James, Thanks for the memories

On August 19, 2008 I photographed Etta James in Beverly Hills for a birthday party.  From her wheel chair to her wig, hilarious anecdotes to her out of breath speech I knew I was documenting one of her last performances.  It was an honor and I’m sure we’ll meet again.

Here are some of my favorites from Etta’s stage, made just for her atop the Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel, Four Seasons.  Enjoy.
