Etta James Placed on a Breathing Machine at Hospital


Longtime manager Lupe De-Leon reveals that the 'At Last' singer was taken to a hospital in California on Wednesday, December 21, after experiencing difficulty breathing.

Etta James' condition seemed to worsen since it was revealed that she is terminally ill with chronic leukemia. Lupe De-Leon, the legendary blues singer's manager of 30 years, told Reuters on Friday, December 23, that she has been placed on a breathing machine after experiencing difficulty breathing.

The "At Last" singer was admitted to a hospital near her Riverside, California home on Wednesday, December 21. "They took her to the hospital," Lupe said. "She was having trouble breathing, so they intubated her. She is on a breathing machine and is resting." The manager added, "It is really sad. She is like my sister."

Etta's live-in doctor, Dr. Elaine James, revealed days earlier that the 73-year-old, who was also diagnosed with dementia and kidney failure, is "gravely ill" and is under 24-hour medical care. The doctor added the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member can only communicate with mostly "uh-huhs" and "no's".
