Christina Aguilera tributes Kobe Bryant with 'Ave Maria.'

Soars with Franz Schubert classic.
Christina Aguilera delivered a soaring performance at the Staples Centre earlier today. Her chosen song was 'Ave Maria' in Italian during the 'Celebration of Life' memorial remembering the late Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna.

These cameramen can be so messy at times, panning away to a swaying Beyoncé, who by chance also has a cover of that very same song. I think Christina did well, with delivering careful restraint and vocal control. Yes, I was a little skurred for this particular performance, but my girl did well.
