 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.
“Out of all the singers that I’ve ever heard, she was the one that cut right to my soul and spoke to me,” Aguilera said.

 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.
“She was able to get us on the same rhythms and humming the same ballads and understanding each other’s melodies way before we could even use the same hotels,” Sharpton proclaimed. He also applauded the Grammy-winner for overcoming poverty and drug addiction.

“At last, you can find peace now,” Sharpton concluded in his eulogy. “At last, you can get the gratitude of the savior now. Etta, you made it, you’re going home. At last! At last! At last!”
