The family of the legendary R&B singer will allow the public to pay their last respects at a viewing on Friday. Etta James, a Los Angeles native, died last week from complications of leukemia. She was 73.

The viewing will be held at the Inglewood Cemetery Mortuary from 5 to 10 p.m. on January 27. The family has requested that donations in the singer’s memory be sent to the Rhythm and Blues Foundation.

A private funeral will be held on Saturday in Gardena, with Reverend Al Sharpton presiding.
