Christina Aguilera's Birthday
“I turned to music originally because of my past and needing a release or an outlet to get out anger or frustration or hurt.”
This day in music celebrates Christina Aguilera’s birthday! An American singer-songwriter by profession, she was born in Staten Island, New York and raised in Wexford, Pennsylvania. She initially made her appearance on the television series Star Search and The Mickey Mouse Club in her childhood.
Aguilera came to prominence with her debut studio album, Christina Aguilera in 1999. Some of her most successful singles have been "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-toppers "Dirrty" and "Beautiful".
Aguilera was established as a pop icon and has garnered honorific titles including the "Princess of Pop" and the "Voice of a Generation". 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”.
Till Today, Aguilera has sold about 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.
