Legend Etta James died this year at age 73, leaving behind a great legacy, her music. The singer had a great success with her song “At Last” in 1961.

In the movie “Cadillac Records” (2008), Beyoncé played Etta James. A year later, she performed the song “At Last” at Barack Obama’s inauguration ball.

Christina Aguilera paid tribute to Etta. The singer sang at the funeral of the famous artist, performing the song “At last” in the singer’s memory.

“At Last” was written in 1941 by Mack Gordon and Harry Warren for the musical film Orchestra Wives, starring George Montgomery and Ann Rutherford.

Glenn Miller and his orchestra performed the track in the film and on record, with vocals by Ray Eberle and Pat Friday.

In 1960, blues singer Etta James covered the song in an arrangement that improvised on Warren’s melody.

James’ version became the title track in the eponymous album At Last! and was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1999.
