A tribute to Etta James
Sing Etta Sing
Music writing prompt entry
Write a poem either free verse or rhyming about music or a story. If you write a story, it needs to be 200-300 words.
Some artists sing songs as if they composed them. They seem to have a depth of understanding which supersedes performance and reveals experiences they know. Nothing stirs the soul like the first few measures of the song, "At Last" sung by Etta James. I know it's been redone by Beyonce, and done well. But Etta captures something of loss, pain, longing, and redemption that no one else can. If you've never heard it, listen to it.Pays one point and 2 member cents.
