THE GIRL FROM DESTINY'S CHILD TO PLAY ETTA JAMES

Etta James
THE BLASPHEMY
Not to be outdone by Akeys playing Billie Holliday, and in her quest to get an oscar nod like Diana Ross, that girl is said to be taking on the role of Etta James in a movie called "Cadilac Records" with Cedric The Entertainer.

The story is about Leonard Chess, the legendary founder of the South Side Chicago blues label Chess Records. The period piece follows the rise and fall of Chess Records, which launched the careers of such R&B greats as Muddy Waters, Etta James and Chuck Berry. Cedric the Entertainer will play Willie Dixon, who wrote most of the hits records and was part of the famous company. One of his most famous songs was "Hoochie Coochie Man". ............................................
Forget that she sounds nothing like Etta, or that she can't act or speak....the girl playing/acting as anybody is never a good idea. Plus, Christina Aguillera just cried 1000x over that this is being done to her idol Etta.

its rediculous to think that BEYONCE should play etta james. CMON NOW?! has anyone even heard either of their voices? completely different. It is an INSULT to etta james fans. Now christina. Just listen to her rendition of " at last"

Christina Aguilera's "At Last" sucked. Don't get me wrong, she has an awesome voice, and could've knocked the song out of the park, but all she was doing the entire time was showing off her pitch range. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Njph0QyXcKs go here, and fast forward it to 1:30, then to 2:00 to get a prime example of why she gets on my nerves. She doesn't deserve that voice at all if she's gonna do stupid crap like that with it.

i'm so sick of people calling others haters for having high standards and speaking their mind about how things about whoever just don't meet their high standards and yes beyonce is just not on that level. this is quite unfortunate and is a sad day for people who have real love for art and music (glad to know christina aguilera feels the same way).

Who should have played the role then, Christina Aguilera?

Its comical to me that Beyonce would even remotely think that somehow her playing Etta James in a movie would be okay. Etta James was classy lady who could sing naturally. While Beyonce can sing she is not a natural at singing and religiously drilled by her father who ensured that she have ever class available to his daughter so that she could become marketable. For the fans out there who needed someone like Beyonce that is all well and good but some of us like the singing from the soul that came naturally to Etta James.

Well, it's a year later and the movie is now a classic. Beyonce gave an incredible performance as did the entire cast. Jeffery Wright is great in every role he portrays. Beyonce made a lot of people eat their words... lol. Who's laughing now?
