Celebrities have reacted to the death of Etta James, who passed away Friday, January 20 in Riverside, LS.

One of the greatest voices of R & B, Etta James has left an indelible mark on the world of music as it is today.

Beyoncé was among the first to react to her death on Friday as she had portrayed James in the 2008 film Cadillac Records.

“This is a huge loss. Etta James was one of the greatest vocalists of our time,” the new mom wrote on her website.

“I am so fortunate to have met such a queen. Her musical contributions will last a lifetime.”

On her role in the 2008 film, Beyoncé added, “Playing Etta James taught me so much about myself, and singing her music inspired me to be a stronger artist. When she effortlessly opened her mouth, you could hear her pain and triumph. Her deeply emotional way of delivering a song told her story with no filter.”

“She was fearless, and had guts. She will be missed,” the singer said, concluding her post.

Aretha Franklin chose to pay tribute to the late Blues singer.

“Etta James was one of the great soul singers of our generation. An American original! I loved ‘Pushover,’ ‘At Last’ and almost any and everything she recorded. When Etta SUNG, you heard it!” the soul singer told People.

Another celebrity who reacted to the news was Pink.

She tweeted: “RIP to the late and great Etta James. Your voice and your fight inspired me and many. I love that through recordings, people can live forever.”
