Christina María Aguilera (born December 18, 1980) is an American singer-songwriter, record producer and actress. Born in Staten Island, New York and raised in Wexford, Pennsylvania, she made appearances on the television series Star Search and The Mickey Mouse Club in her childhood. Aguilera came to prominence with her number-one debut album, Christina Aguilera (1999); its singles "Genie in a Bottle", "What a Girl Wants" and "Come On Over Baby (All I Want Is You)" each peaked atop the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. Her follow-up records, Mi Reflejo and My Kind of Christmas (2000), experienced moderate success worldwide. Displeased with her lack of input in her image and music, Aguilera assumed creative control for her fourth album, Stripped (2002), which yielded the international chart-topping hits "Dirrty" and "Beautiful".

Aguilera's fifth record, Back to Basics (2006), incorporated elements of 1930s and 1940s blues, soul, and jazz music. The album peaked at number one in 15 countries and its singles "Ain't No Other Man", "Hurt" and "Candyman" charted within the top-ten internationally. However, her electronica-inspired sixth album, Bionic (2010), made little commercial impact. Later that year, Aguilera starred alongside Cher in the film Burlesque, and served as the executive producer of its accompanying soundtrack. Her seventh record, Lotus (2012), was influenced by electropop and dance-pop elements. Since 2011, Aguilera has served as an original coach on the American version of The Voice, having appeared in four of its six seasons.

Aguilera was established as a pop icon and has garnered honorific titles including the "Princess of Pop". Her work has earned her numerous awards and accolades, including four Grammy Awards, one Latin Grammy Award, two Billboard Music Awards, two MTV Music Video Awards, a Golden Globe Award nomination, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the Special Achievement Award “People's Voice”. To date, Aguilera has sold 17.4 million albums in the United States and 50 million worldwide. Rolling Stone ranked her 58th on their list of the 100 Greatest Singers of All Time, becoming its youngest and only artist under the age of thirty. During the 2000s, Billboard recognized her as the 20th Artist of the Decade and its second top-selling single artist, behind Madonna. Aguilera was ranked number eight in VH1's 100 Greatest Women in Music and was one of Time's 100 Most Influential People in the World in 2013. Outside of her work in the entertainment industry, Aguilera is involved in charitable activities through human rights, world issues, and her work as a UN ambassador for the World Food Programme.

Selected Album

Stripped is the fourth studio album by American recording artist Christina Aguilera, released on October 25, 2002 by RCA Records. Looking to transition from the teen pop styles of her self-titled debut album (1999), Aguilera took creative control over her next album project, both musically and lyrically. She also changed her public image and established her new alter ego, "Xtina". Musically, its music incorporates pop and R&B with influences from many different genres, including soul, metal, rock, hip hop, and Latin. Lyrically, most of the songs from the album discuss the theme of self-respect, while a few other songs talk about sex and feminism. As executive producer, Aguilera enlisted many new collaborators for the album.

Selected Song

"Beautiful" is a song by American recording artist Christina Aguilera, taken from her fourth studio album, Stripped. It was released on November 16, 2002 as the second single from the album. A pop ballad, "Beautiful" was written and produced by Linda Perry. Lyrically, it discusses inner beauty, as well as self-esteem and insecurity issues. Aguilera commented that she put "her heart and her soul" into the track, which she felt represented the theme of Stripped. The song was later re-recorded in an electronic style for her first greatest hits album Keeps Gettin' Better: A Decade of Hits (2008).
