American soul singer Etta James has passed away at the age of 73.

The star died through complications of leukemia and was also said to be suffering from hepatits C and dementia at her time of her passing.

Etta had a long and decorated career in the music industry and recently featured on Flo Rida's hit single 'Good Feeling' after a sample from her 1962 hit 'Something's Got a Hold on Me' was used by the rapper. 

Her manager and friend Lupe De Leon made the announcement today (20th January) and said: "This is a tremendous loss for the family, her friends and fans around the world."

Leon also added that the singer had passed away at a hospital in Riverside, California.

Meanwhile, 'Good Feeling' could be in the running to claim back the top spot on this weekend's Vodafone Big Top 40 chart from Jessie J who last week hit the summit with her latest single 'Domino'.
