Beyonce could take Etta James in more ways than one

Riccardo S. Breland

Yes, Dinah Washington was a Diva of Diva's. My dad would listen to her and Billie and would start to cry. But that same Diva, heard a cleaning lady sing in the ladies restroom and made her a star. Took her out of that bathroom and dressed her in one of her gowns and put her on the stage. That was how they say Gloria Lynne was discovered.

Well, I must admit that I'm not a fan of Beyonce. I just cannot understand the appeal. That being said, I am a fan of Etta. It seems to me that this is just the bi-product of someone laying the foundation and someone better looking and younger comes around and steals the spotlight with ease and little work. Look great, sound ok, and get a great agent behind you and the possibility of making it really big can happen. Someone will always pay the dues for someone else and the next generation seems to burst on the scene, make the big bucks, get all the press, etc.
