Legendary soul singer Etta James has been reportedly hospitalized after experiencing breathing difficulties. According to her Manager, Lupe De Leon, the 73-year-old is in “pretty bad shape.”

James, who has an incurable case of leukemia, was admitted at a Southern California hospital, with her family members by her side.

Prior to being admitted, James has been under 24-hour care at her California home after being diagnosed with cancer and dementia. She recently urged fans to pray for her.

Our prayers go out to Etta and her family.
