In a brief statement issued earlier today, Beyonce honored the memory of the woman she played in the movie Cadillac Records. Bey had nothing but kind words to say about Etta James.

‎”This is a huge loss. Etta James was one of the greatest vocalists of our time. I am so fortunate to have met such a queen. Her musical contributions will last a lifetime. Playing Etta James taught me so much about myself, and singing her music inspired me to be a stronger artist. When she effortlessly opened her mouth, you could hear her pain and triumph. Her deeply emotional way of delivering a song told her story with no filter. She was fearless, and had guts. She will be missed.”

I personally think it would be really dope if Bey would sing Etta’s classic song “At Last” at the funeral.
