She's not a super strong video artist, but to me she has at least 4 memorable ones: Beautiful (inspirational and powerful, especially meaningful to me) Fighter (great imagery!) Candyman (dancing, color, characters) Your Body
Then there are 2 that have replaying value either for ridiculousness or campiness or wtfery: Lady marmalade and Not myself tonight

I went through a period of really loving her videos. Like, Come on Over Baby through The Voice Within were all great videos to me in one way or another. Like, I know Can't Hold us Down won't go down as a great video, but I still loved how ridiculous it was. Voice Within-not much happening, but beautifully shot. It gets spottier after that, but I did like Hurt and Your Body.
Davis's interest in pop star Christina Aguilera was piqued at blues legend Etta James' funeral in California in January 2012. Davis spoke at the service; Stevie Wonder and Aguilera performed. She sang James's signature "At Last."
"She got through about a verse and a half, and everybody stood up and gave 'amens,'" Davis recalled. "It was like an electric shock went through that place as Christina sang over Etta's casket. That was an all-time moment in my life, and I've been around a lot of moments. This woman is an amazing artist."
Aguilera is managed by music industry legend Irving Azoff, who also manages the Eagles. Davis worked with Azoff to bring the Eagles to Jazz Fest in 2012. That existing relationship helped get Aguilera to Jazz Fest.
Interviewer: A lot of people who love R&B are particularly upset about the lack of vocalists in current R&B music, there are a lot of non-singers making millions. What’s your take on current R&B?
Patti: The same! Oh my God, It’s a hot mess, a hot mess. There are some R&B singers who can really sing like Mariah, Beyonce ... I think that’s about it. Christina Aguilera -- I don’t know what she is, I mean, she’s not called an R&B singer, but to me she has R&B pipes. She can sing her face off!
