Throughout her career, Aguilera has released multiple successful albums, exploring various genres such as R&B, soul, and Latin pop.

Early Life and Career Beginnings

Christina María Aguilera was born in Staten Island, New York City, on December 18, 1980. Her father is Ecuadorian, and her mother has German, Irish, Welsh, and Dutch ancestry. Due to her father's work as a soldier in the United States Army, Aguilera moved frequently during her early life before settling in Rochester, a Pittsburgh suburb, after her parents' divorce when she was six years old.

In 1991, despite not meeting the minimum age requirements, Aguilera auditioned for "The Mickey Mouse Club." She joined the cast two years later, where she performed alongside other now-famous names, including Justin Timberlake, Ryan Gosling, and Britney Spears, until the show's cancellation in 1994. Aguilera was selected by Disney to sing "Reflection," the theme song for the animated film "Mulan" (1998), after sending in her cover version of Whitney Houston's "Run to You." "Reflection" charted in the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart at number 15 when it was released in June 1998.

Musical Career

With the success of "Reflection," Aguilera signed with RCA Records. The label rushed the production of her album in order to keep up with the teen pop trend of the time, headed by fellow pop star Britney Spears. Aguilera's single "Genie in a Bottle," released in June 1999, brought her to stardom when it peaked at the US Billboard Hot 100. Her eponymous debut album followed in August 1999, peaking at number one on the US Billboard 200. In 2010, it was certified platinum eight times by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) and sold 17 million copies worldwide.

At the 42nd Annual Grammy Awards in February 2000, Aguilera won Best New Artist. Subsequently, she released two more studio albums, the Spanish-language "Mi Reflejo" and the holiday record "My Kind of Christmas" in September and October 2000, respectively. Her first concert tour, "Christina Aguilera in Concert," lasted from mid-2000 to early 2001 and included stops in North America, Europe, South America, and Japan.

Displeased with the lack of control over her image and music, Aguilera terminated her manager, Steve Kurtz, and began working with Irving Azoff. Her first project after gaining more artistic control over her career was "Lady Marmalade," her 2001 collaboration with Pink, Mya, and Lil Kim. It went on to win Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals at the 44th Annual Grammy Awards.

Aguilera served as executive producer and co-writer for most songs on her fourth studio album, "Stripped" (2002). It was during the promotion for "Stripped" that Aguilera adopted the "Xtina" alter ego, debuting an edgier look with dyed black hair, tattoos, and several piercings. With her fifth studio album, "Back to Basics" (2006), Aguilera returned to blonde, adopting a retro image inspired by Classic Hollywood style icons such as Marilyn Monroe and naming this new persona "Baby Jane." Her "Back to Basics Tour" from November 2006 to October 2008 grossed $48.1 million.

Her later albums "Bionic" (2010) and "Lotus" (2012) received mixed reviews, although her 2018 album "Liberation" was met with positive reviews and debuted at number six on the US Billboard 200 chart. To promote "Liberation," Aguilera went on two tours: The Liberation Tour in the US (September – November 2018) and The X Tour in Europe (July to December 2019). She also headlined The Xperience, a 25-date concert residency at the Zappos Theater in Las Vegas from May 2019 to March 2020. In May 2022, she released her ninth studio album, "Aguilera," and Christina headlined the Los Angeles Pride Festival in June. In October 2022, "Stripped" was reissued for its 20th anniversary with new material.
