Christina Aguilera pays homage to Etta James at her funeral

Etta James’ funeral was held on Saturday in Gardena, Calif.

Christina Aguilera was present at the service and offered a moving performance of “At Last.”

The song was meant to be a tribute to the R&B legend who died at the age of 73 after a long battle with leukemia.

The song has a special meaning for Christina as she is known to include it in her shows.

In a statement to people magazine, Aguilera explained her reasons for paying homage to James:

“It isn’t every day that an artist can meet the person who inspired them and their career. Not only did I have the incredible opportunity of meeting my idol, the legendary Ms. Etta James, but to be asked by her family to perform at her memorial was so very touching and yet bitter sweet.”

“Etta wasn’t just any performer, she was a strong woman whose talent came from a place so deep it moved people in ways they never felt before. Losing her was, to me, like losing a part of my soul.”

“I can only hope that she felt the love in the room as we all came together to pay tribute to her and celebrate her life as a person and as an artist. She will be deeply missed and I thank her family for allowing me such a great honor.”
