Â Music legend and idol Etta James was remembered by family, friends, and fans at a beautiful funeral service held at Greater Bethany Community Church City of Refuge in Gardena, Calif on Saturday.
Among the celebrity guests who came to pay homage were the Rev. Al Sharpton, who eulogized the singer, Stevie Wonder, who performed with a church choir, and Christina Aguilera.
â€œOut of all the singers that Iâ€™ve ever heard, she was the one that cut right to my soul and spoke to me,â€ Aguilera said.
Â During the eulogy, Sharpton praised James for being the woman she was, beating a path for other singers and pushing through racial barriers through her music.
â€œShe was able to get us on the same rhythms and humming the same ballads and understanding each otherâ€™s melodies way before we could even use the same hotels,â€ Sharpton proclaimed. He also applauded the Grammy-winner for overcoming poverty and drug addiction.
â€œAt last, you can find peace now,â€ Sharpton concluded in his eulogy. â€œAt last, you can get the gratitude of the savior now. Etta, you made it, youâ€™re going home. At last! At last! At last!â€
Â P.S. Everyone is on the internet talking about Christina and what she says was tanning lotion but everyone else say’s something different as it ran down the 31-year-old’s leg. Here’s the video and all the photos….
Christina Aguilera had a embarrassing “wardrobe” malfunction while singing at Etta James’ funeral. The malfunction had nothing to do with what she had on. It was caused by what she had in–or didn’t have in–securely. The unspeakable malfunction occurred because her feminine protection product apparently failed her. Or to put it grossly and bluntly, her tampon or maxi pad leaked, and her period ran down her leg
Etta James passed away on Jan. 20 at 73 years old after battling leukemia and dementia.
