This was the third song in the 20 minute set performed at the Orpheum Theater in Memphis for the IBC finals. It was a dedication to Paula's musical mentor- the late great Etta James. The arrangement was done by Simon Russell and features Al Diaz on drums, Terry Hiatt on guitar, Doug McKeehan on keys and Joey Fabian on Bass. The additional lyrics at the vamp on the end were Paula's contribution.

You can hear how well received this selection was with the enthusiastic audience. Bands competing were judged on their original songs, creative covers, stage presence, instrumental talent, vocal talent and how well what they perform qualifies as " Blues" Paula took the third place out of well over 100 of the best bands from around the world. She was also the only female to place in the competition.
