Entertainment Industry Recent Losses-Etta James, Robert Hegyes and Don Cornelius

They always say that deaths in the entertainment industry usually happen in three's and the last couple of weeks we again lost three.  Etta James - one of the most beautiful voices of our time who defied category passed away on January 20th from Leukemia,  Robert Hegyes best known for his portrayal of Juan Epstein in the  "Welcome Back, Kotter" series died on January 26th of Cardiac Arrest and Don Cornelius - host and founder of Soul Train died February 1st of a self inflicted gunshot wound.

These three left their marks in the Entertainment Industry and will be sadly missed.  Etta James' rendition of the 1941 song "At Last" became the new standard and helped make her legendary.  Rolling Stone ranked her as number 22 of the top 100 singers of all time - she had a voice like no other!
