A public viewing for the late Etta James will be held at Inglewood Cemetery Mortuary on Friday, a family representative told the LA Times.

The viewing will be held at Inglewood Cemetery Mortuary from 5 to 10 p.m. in the Manchester Chapel.

James’ family said donations in the singer’s memory may be sent to the the Rhythm and Blues Foundation. Flowers also will be welcomed.

James died last week at age 73. “A Political Obituary of Etta James” was published earlier today on Colorlines.com.
