The 'Beautiful' singer gave an emotional performance of the late star's signature track during her funeral this weekend.
Christina Aguilera paid tribute to her late idol Etta James yesterday (28th January) with a performance of the singer's most iconic song.
The 'Moves Like Jagger' star made an appearance at Etta's funeral, held in Los Angeles in front of hundreds of mourners, where she gave a heartfelt rendition of the soul singer's signature song 'At Last'.
"It is an amazing honour for me to have been welcomed here today, invited here to pay tribute to the great Miss Etta James," Christina told those in attendance. "It's very emotional for me to sing today, as this has meant so much to me.
"All my life I've aspired to sing like Etta James, to be like her. Of all the singers I've ever heard she was the one who cut right to my soul."
Etta James passed away at the age of 73 on 20th January after suffering complications from leukaemia.
Beyonce, Lady Gaga and Jessie J are among a large number of stars who have all posted messages of tribute to the late singer.
