Christina Aguilera Biography
Christina Aguilera is considered by some to be the voice of the generation and the diva of the stage, while others refuse to occupy the first rows in the auditorium, fearing to go deaf. For some, the singer’s possession of the vocal apparatus evokes professional delight, while for others, bewilderment and pity. Colleagues Celine Dion and Axl Rose call Aguilera one of the best vocalists of our time. In any case, no one is indifferent.
Childhood and youth
Christina Aguilera was born in the southernmost part of New York, in Staten Island. Her father Fausto Xavier Aguilera, an emigrant from Ecuador, was a professional military man. Shelley’s mother Lorraine Fiedler is a former violinist and pianist, a member of the US Youth Symphony Orchestra, at the time of the birth of her eldest daughter, she had already stopped her stage career and became a Spanish teacher at school. Christina has a 6-year-old younger sister, Rachel.
Little Christina’s childhood cannot be called carefree, primarily because her father was very authoritarian and suppressed both his wife and children with his despotism. A year after the birth of her youngest daughter, Shelley takes the girls, moves to Pennsylvania to live with her mother, and files for divorce.
Musical talent, apparently, went to Christina on the maternal side. She very early began to show herself as a gifted singer. The creative biography of the artist began in elementary school.
At the age of 8, Aguilera took 2nd place in the children’s talent competition “Star Search”, performing a fairly complex composition by Whitney Houston “The Greatest Love of All”. The next notable success was the performance of the national American anthem at the opening of the sports games in Pittsburgh. At that time, Christina was 11 years old. A year later, the famous American TV show “The Mickey Mouse Club” starts, and young Aguilera becomes one of the participants in the project, along with such future stars
he heavy workload and busyness on the show led to Aguilera in the 8th grade deciding to drop out of secondary school and focus on her own career. The freed up time systematically leads to an increase in the number of projects in which an aspiring singer participates. Christina performs in Japan and Romania, records the song “Reflection” for the Disney cartoon “Mulan”. The soundtrack was so successful that it was nominated for a Golden Globe and earned Aguilera her first professional contract with RCA Records.

In 1999, Christina Aguilera released her debut album “Christina Aguilera”. It immediately became popular, and the single “Genie in a Bottle” turns out to be a hit number 1 not only in America, but also in 14 other countries. In the most famous Billboard music chart, the song held the leading position for 5 consecutive weeks.
Christina Aguilera’s first serious relationship was with the dancer of her troupe, George Santos. In 2001, the singer got a tattoo on her stomach as a sign of close relationship, the design of which Aguilera and Santos came up with. Following on the left wrist of the girl appeared a Celtic symbol of eternal love and friendship, on the neck – her own name, made in calligraphic script.
The artists’ relationship lasted 2 years, but the couple broke up after Santos decided to retire from dancing and become a music manager. Christina dedicated the songs “Underappreciated” and “Infatuation” to her boyfriend.
In 2002, Aguilera met producer Jordan Bratman. In honor of this relationship, the artist also got a tattoo, the inscriptions in Spanish and Hebrew on the singer’s left forearm contain a declaration of love and the initials of the chosen one.
Aguilera and Bratman dated for 3 years, after which Jordan became an official husband. Another tattoo, this time on the lower back, became the singer’s wedding gift to her husband: Christina imprinted on her body a quote from “Song of Solomon’s Songs” in Hebrew, which means “I belong to my beloved, and my beloved – to me.” In 2008, the couple had a son, Max Layron Bratman. After 5 years of marriage, Aguilera and Bratman divorced, but remained on good terms.
