    Late singer Etta James will be laid to rest in a private service in Los Angeles tomorrow, Jan. 28.

    James died earlier this week from complications due to leukemia.

    A public viewing of James' body will take place for fans in Inglewood ahead of the funeral, which will be held in Gardena, while Reverend Al Sharpton will deliver the eulogy. Stars are slated to perform at the memorial, although it has not yet been revealed which stars will be on hand.

    Her family have also asked relatives, friends and fans to send donations to the Rhythm & Blues Foundation in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in lieu of flowers.
