As we draw closer to the end of the year, it's only fitting we pay tribute to the fallen stars and newsmakers that brought us much joy or left us buzzing. Here's a final goodbye to Whitney Houston, Don Cornelius, Donna Summer and more.
On January 20, the music world lost one of its most treasured vocalist, Etta James. The blues and soul singer lost her battle with leukemia at 73. James's best known song, "At Last," earned her a spot in the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1999. In 2008, "At Last" made its way into the history books once again when Beyoncé sang it for President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama during their first dance at his inaugural ball. Watch James sing her greatest hit live.
