Christina Aguilera says she can die happy now after meeting her idol, legendary R&B singer Etta James, during a photo shoot for the July issue of InStyle. “Etta is my all-time favorite singer,” Aguilera explained to MTV News. “I’ve said it for the last seven years – since I had my first debut record out – in every interview, in every story, in every on- and off-camera question. I mean, all of Etta’s old songs, countless songs I could name, I grew up listening to. That music was always such a huge escape for me, even from a young age.” Read more, including a photo of the pair, here.
