by at . Comments

Christina Aguilera paid tribute to Etta James today at the iconic singer's funeral.

“She was the one that cut right through my soul. So tonight, Etta, this song is for you,” the 31-year-old artist said before belting out a version of "At Last."

Stevie Wonder also performed “Shelter in the Rain” with a church choir at the emotional event, while Rev. Al Sharpton delivered the eulogy for James, 73, who died last week at the due to complications from leukemia.

Omg you people act as if you never seen cleavage. So the cut was a little low, so what! Her arms, stomach and half her legs were covered! I dont remember Christina saying she was better than Etta James either. Christina has some of the best pipes in the biz and I cant believe some of you haters have the audacity to say that she cant sing/sounds horrible. Saying she was dressed as a whore is a little dramatic...God the commentors on this site are so judgemental and hateful. Get a LIFE!

Hey, Christina, did you think you were hitting a night club when you were dressing for Etta's funeral? Wake up you stupid trash, that dress was totally inappropriate. And your version of At Last was horrible! Your days as a singer are over, sister!

leo, i am familiar with al sharpton, i was just being sarcastic. i think he is an embarrassment to the black community. i cringe every time that man opens his mouth. he is disgusting and does not represent me or my views. i am mostly embarrased that he refers to himself as reverand since he does not conduct himself as a holy man (can someone say hymietown?)

@latreesha,
First time greeting!!
Rev. Al Sharpton is the host of a show called Politic Nation on MSNBC.
The show airs weekdays at 6:00 p.m. and is sandwiched between the Chris Matthews Shows. In addition to being an activist for Civil Rights, Al Sharpton continues to be one of the most vocal pastors in our modern day history. *We may Not always agree with his opinion, but he is well versed and up to date on the latest (political) News and information and is Not shy about voicing his opinion. PEACE!!

Christina Aguilera Quotes

It's kind of hilarious! I've never fit into an E-cup before. I look at my husband and go, 'Guess what size this bra is?' And when I tell him, he's just amazed. We keep the tags that prove it, to look back for memory's sake!

Oh, my God, candy! I had a huge craving for candy toward the end of the pregnancy, from Starbursts to Skittles. I actually took a picture of myself with my big belly in a little lingerie top, surrounded by bowls of the candy I like
