    "At Last" singer Etta James has been hospitalized as she battles incurable leukemia.

    James' caretaker Dr. Elaine James said that James, 73, has been placed under 24-hour medical care.

    CNN reported that James' condition had taken a turn for the worse and she has been admitted to a hospital in California. CNN posted via a Twitter feed: "An update on Etta James: Her manager tells CNN that she’s been taken to the hospital – her husband and sons are with her."
