Etta James

A deadly blood infection has hospitalized blues singer Etta James Hawkins.

Reportedly, the singer is currently hospitalized at Riverside Community Hospital in Southern California. She's recovering from sepsis, a blood infection caused by a urinary tract infection. Medically speaking, Sepsis is a life-threatening illness in which the bloodstream becomes overwhelmed with bacteria.

The singer recently celebrated her 72nd birthday on January 25th. Despite historical documents revealing that the singer is actually 82 years old.

Her son Donto James has also admitted that his mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's (dementia) a year ago and remains addicted to drugs (painkillers).

It is important to note that Joe Jackson (Michael Jackson's father) also suffers from Alzheimer's.
