The AP is reporting that Etta James has been hospitalized in Southern California with a serious infection. The singer’s son, Donto James, said she has been at Riverside Community Hospital for about a week, recovering from sepsis caused by a urinary tract infection. He said he expects her to be released soon. He also said his mother entered a treatment program a month ago to break a dependency on painkillers and over-the-counter medicine.
