Christina Aguilera: December, 18 1980

As a child, Christina Aguilera admired artists such as Whitney Houston, Madonna, Judy Garland and Etta James. She took part in talent competitions. Her first great success was as a singer with the song Reflection for the cartoon movie Mulan in 1998, which was nominated for a Grammy. In the same week of the nomination, Christina Aguilera got a record deal with RCA Records. Genie in a Bottle followed as another chart success. The song reached # 1 on the US single charts. Since she did not feel comfortable with the music and the image that her management required of her, she changed piecewise musically as well as lyrically.

In 2001 she sang together with Lil Kim, Pink and Mya the theme song of the film Moulin Rouge, Lady Marmalade. In addition, she successfully interpreted the ballad Beautiful written by Linda Perry. In the movie Burlesque from 2011 she is seen as an actress together with Cher.
