Singer Merry Clayton injured in car accident
June 24, 2014, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — Veteran back-up singer Merry Clayton is recovering after being seriously injured in an automobile accident.

Clayton’s manager, Alan Abrahams, said in a statement Monday that the 65-year-old singer sustained severe injuries to her lower body, including major trauma to her lower extremities, following the June 16 accident.

Abrahams said Monday that Clayton has a long road to recovery.

Clayton was among the back-up singers featured in the Academy Award-winning documentary film “20 Feet From Stardom.”

She began her career in the early 1960s and has recorded with Ray Charles, Carole King, Bobby Darin and the Rolling Stones.

What do you think of the recent White House decision to change the name of Alaska's Mt. McKinley to Denali?

It's good to go back to what most people in Alaska call it
Never thought about it
We should keep the name McKinley
It's OK, but would be nice to find a different way to honor McKinley
How about keeping both names?
