Grammy-Winning Singer Etta James Soon To Be Discharged From ICU



Grammy-award-winning singer Etta James, who is terminally ill with leukemia, was hospitalized more than a week ago due to breathing difficulties. She was confined in the intensive care unit of a California hospital near her home and placed on a breathing machine. The end of the year brought better news, as James has since been taken off the respirator and is expected to be released soon from the ICU. The singer, known for her song "At Last," also suffers from kidney disease and dementia, and has been treated  in the past at her house in California.
