Kelly Clarkson paid tribute to the late Etta James Saturday night before a sold out crowd at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall, the latest stop on her Stronger tour.

Performing before a sold-out crowd, Kelly belted out her own rendition of Etta’s classic song, I’d Rather Go Blind, honoring the legendary R&B singer, who died Friday of complications from pneumonia.

Kelly also performed a wide range of covers, including Coldplay’s ‘Fix You’ and ‘My Man’ from Funny Girl (seriously, can Broadway re-launch the Funny Girl revival and have Kelly star?), making us all sad we weren’t there to catch her live.
