Etta James death hoax

Reports today of the death of Etta James are, thankfully, incorrect - despite Wikipedia stating earlier that she had died. The hoax story appeared on a fake version of the celebrity website TMZ and they are now investigating how it happened according to the LA Times The story spread rapidly across the web and Twitter and when I checked Wikipedia earlier today it stated that the 73 year old singer had died yesterday. Sadly, Etta is seriously ill with dementia and leukemia and it seems unlikely that we will see her perform again. But at least she is still hanging on.
