Music icon Etta James has been hospitalized for a potentially deadly infection.

According to sources, James was taken to an undisclosed hospital earlier this week for treatment of sepsis.

Sepsis is a severe illness in which the bloodstream is overwhelmed by bacteria.

Last year, James was placed in a hospital for the same issue. She currently suffers from leukemia, dementia, kidney problems and other ailments.

Everyone please keep Etta and her family in your prayers…
