Christina Aguilera performs stunning rendition of 'At Last' at Etta James' funeral

Christina Aguilera took the stage at the funeral of Etta James on Saturday, January 28, and paid tribute to her with a stunning rendition of 'At Last'. 

Before her phenomenal performance, the platinum-haired song told mourners, "There's a song that I've included in my tour now for over a decade since the first time that I was able to have a world tour"

"I would sing this song every night - even to this day, there's not a setlist that goes by that I don't include this song - it's very emotional for me to sing this today."

After the service, Aguilera took to her official Twitter account and shared a photograph with her followers, which shows her singing alongside the late James, and accompanied it with the caption:

"One of the greatest moments of my life... Singing with my idol, the legendary Etta James. You will forever be missed."
