Etta James was laid to rest over the weekend after succumbing to a long battle with cancer. Many of her celebrity friends came to pay their respects, but it was a performance by songstress Christina Aguilera really stirred the service.

Christina has long listed Etta James as her favorite singer. The influence is apparent, and she has even incorporated Ms. James’ song “At Last” into her live show for over a decade. Watch as she sings it here at the service:

Note: The internet streets are buzzing about this video…and not for her singing. In it, there seems to be a mysterious brown liquid trailing down her leg as she sang…some said that it was a menstrual accident (side-eye)… but I’m pretty sure it was just a sunless tanner. Either way…it’s embarrassing but, at the end of the day… she SANG that song.
