Christina Aguilera performed Etta James’ song “At Last” at her funeral in California on Saturday.  Etta passed away on January 20th.  She was 73.

Before singing, Christina said,

Out of all the singers that I’ve ever heard, she was the one that cut right to my soul and spoke to me . . . Etta, this song is for you.”

The ceremony also featured Stevie Wonder singing with the church choir, and Reverend Al Sharpton delivering the eulogy. Sharpton also read a statement from President Obama, who danced with Michelle Obama to “At Last” during his first inaugural ball. In part it read,

Etta will be remembered for her legendary voice and her contributions to our nation’s musical heritage.  I know she will be sorely missed by all those who knew and loved her.”

And Sharpton ended the eulogy saying,

At last, you can find peace now!  At last, you can get your reward now.  At last, you can get the gratitude of the savior now.  Go on home Etta, get your reward . . . At last!  At last!  At last!”
