This will either be really good or an absolute horrible trainwreck. There’s no doubt that Beyonce can sing – I still love that Chi-Lites sample on Crazy in Love. I really hope that she can do Etta and that the rest of the cast and crew do justice to such an important time in black music.

As a bonus here is Etta James. Vocal only.

as a double bonus here’s a clip that features the great Chi-Lites sample.

I strongly advise that you don’t watch this Etta James related video.
