    I saw on Showbiz Tonight the other night that Etta James passed away. She was 73.

    *edited cause I had the wrong name and age.

    Ella Fitzgerald passed away in 1996. Etta James just passed away on the 20th.

    Yeah, I meant Etta James. Sorry. I get their names mixed up for some reason. Here's the article from CNN if anyone wants to read it.

    Don Cornelius died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. Here's the article from Excite News:


    Soul Train Host Don Cornelius Dead at 75.


    Also just saw on Showbiz Tonight that Nick and Aaron Carter's 25 year old sister (Leslie, I think was her name) died.

    Just saw Whitney died on TMZ.com. How sad. It kills me when talents like that don't take care of themselves.

    Her cause of death is not known yet, but I can guess...what a shame.

    Wow. How truly sad. What an awesome talent she was.
    Her rendition of The National Anthem has really never been equalled, IMO.
    It will certainly be hard to feel festive at the Grammy's tomorrow night. I expect a fairly somber mood overall.

    RIP, Whitney.
    Sincere condolecences to her family and friends, and especially to her daughter.

    ETA: TVline has posted some of her music videos, including The Star Spangled Banner. Amaaazzzing.

    I still can't believe Whitney Houston is dead. I absolutely LOVE her song "Greatest Love Of All".
    R.I.P. Whitney. I would've loved, when you and Michael Jackson were both alive, to have heard the 2 of you do a duet of the Jackson 5 song "I'll Be There".

    They say the deaths come in threes and it just did...

    Gary Carter, HOF catcher with the Expos and Mets died of cancer at the age of 57. :(
