When spotted with mystery fluid streaming down her leg, the 'Not Myself Tonight' hitmaker is delivering a moving rendition of 'At Last' at James' funeral in Gardena, California.
Christina Aguilera seemed to have experienced a little accident at Etta James' funeral. When the "Beautiful" hitmaker performed a rendition of the late R&B legend's hit song "At Last" at the Greater Bethany Community Church City of Refuge in Gardena, California last Saturday, January 28, mystery fluid was caught on camera streaming down her leg.
Several blogs were quick to speculate that the talk-about fluid might be menstrual blood. There are yet words of clarification, but the mentor/judge of "The Voice" was seen wiping something off her leg with her other leg at the 3:50 mark in a video of her Saturday performance.
The accident aside, Aguilera has expressed how honored she is on being chosen to sing at James' funeral. To PEOPLE, the 31-year-old singer said, "It isn't every day that an artist can meet the person who inspired them and their career. Not only did I have the incredible opportunity of meeting my idol, the legendary Ms. Etta James, but to be asked by her family to perform at her memorial was so very touching and yet bitter sweet."
"Etta wasn't just any performer, she was a strong woman whose talent came from a place so deep it moved people in ways they never felt before," she continued. "Losing her was, to me, like losing a part of my soul. I can only hope that she felt the love in the room as we all came together to pay tribute to her and celebrate her life as a person and as an artist. She will be deeply missed and I thank her family for allowing me such a great honor."
