Christina Aguilera Sings At Last at Etta James Funeral
Rev. Al Sharpton gave the eulogy and Christina Aguilera sung her classic song "At Last" ... as 300 mourners gathered at Greater Bethany Community Church City of Refuge in Gardena, CA for the funeral of legendary singer Etta James.

James passed away on January 20 at the age of 73.

Stevie Wonder was also in attendance. He performed "Shelter in the Rain" and sang The Lord's Prayer.

Sharpton read a note from President Barack Obama that said in part, "I know she will be sorely missed by all those who knew and loved her."

Your skirt fits way too tight, and keep your chest covered at a funeral no one should have to tell you that. That is pathetic this was about Etta James.

If anyone knew anything about the great Etta James is that she woulda loved what Christina wore, she would a said hey if you got em flaunt them, ESPECIALLY if you,re gonna sing at my funeral. She was a bit of a hell raiser & no prude by far. The late great Etta loved to shock people and would have no prob with this at all, She woulda been laughing at peoples reactions. Actually it was kind of a homage to Etta if anyone knew anything about this lady.

Seriously. Some of you need to get a life. It's Christina Aguilera. When has she EVER been known to "tone it down"? Her blazer cut down to her navel? HARDLY. Fake tits? No. She's just chunky. Seriously, get over it and start hating on somebody with zero freaking talent (aka Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry...) and get off this poor girls back. Are the only posters on TMZ a bunch of 13 year old girls?

When she first walks out on the stage to sing at Etta's funeral she is wiping something from her legs. No way to know if she's spilled something before walking on stage or what happened but in the video it doesn't appear to be blood.

Despite having dozens of "accidents" over the years, I've never had blood run down my leg. But then, I wear underwear.

Absolutely horrible. This girl cannot sing ONE damn song without having to over sing every word. She has sang this song the exact same way ever since she began singing it. Horribly. Over singing, throwing "oohho ohooohohoohohoooo's" every 5 fu****g seconds. Does she know this is a FUNERAL and not a concert of hers where she can show off her vocal exercises?? It's just tacky. At someone's funeral isn't the time or place to be showing off your (horrible) vocal riffs.

I would have felt sorry for her if she didn't butcher Etta's simple, soulful song. Christina forgot it was a tribute and ripped the song to pieces trying to make it "hers". Yodeling doesn't replace soul!
