Christina Maria Aguilera was born on December 18, 1980, in Staten Island, NY. Her parents divorced when she was young and she lived with her mother, although they moved around quite a bit. Christina's goal almost since birth was to be a singer.
At age 12 she was invited to audition for "MMC" (1989). She wound up getting the part and stayed there for a few years, until the show ended. In 1999 she had her breakthrough hit, "Genie in a Bottle". Since then she's made millions of fans, sold millons of records and has won many awards, including a Grammy for best new female artist.
She has even made a Latin album and will be working on a second one. A Christmas album has also been released
"I was thrilled to work with so many great producers on this album" gushes Christina. Recent hitmakers Carl Sturken & Evan Rogers ['N Sync, Boyzone, Brand New Heavies] contribute a pair of tracks -- the pop-soul "Love For All Seasons" and the rousing dance-floor smash "Love Will Find A Way."
"Genie In A Bottle" was produced by ex-System member David Frank and Steve Kipner. The uncomplicated, heartfelt "Blessed" was penned and produced by Travon Potts [co-writer of Monica's chart topping "Angel of Mine]. Christina is specially proud of her ballads, including the Matthew Wilder ["No Doubt"] produced "Reflection" and the spine-tingling Diane Warren ballad "I Turn To You", produced by Guy Roche [Brandy, Dru Hill, Aaliya, K-Ci & Jo Jo]. Her soaring uptempos and thrilling ballads serve as ample proof that Christina is not just a new kid on the block, but a prime candidate for the Voice of her generation. This debut album marks another huge step for Christina down the road of commercial and critical success.
With numerous television appearances to her credit it is not surprising that Christina has recently been approached by a number of directors for roles in films going into production this summer. But, this blond beauty with dazzling blue eyes is going to wait a bit before pursuing more time in front of the camera. "Right now, I'm continuing to focus on my singing," says Christina, "I've been waiting for this moment my whole life."
An American pop singer, Christina Aguilera catapulted to superstar status with her hit song "Genie In A Bottle." Aguilera cemented her status as a pop icon with other hits like "What a Girl Wants", "I Turn to You", "Come on Over Baby (All I Want Is You)", "Beautiful", "Fighter" and "Can't Hold Us Down."
