Christina Aguilera Net Worth 2020, Biography and Career.
Christina Aguilera Net Worth 2020 – Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Christina Aguilera is renowned for her powerful voice and such hit songs as ‘Genie in a Bottle,’ ‘What a Girl Wants,’ and for being a reality singing competition judge for ‘The Voice.’
Born on December 18, 1980, in Staten Island, New York, Christina Aguilera was actually predestined as an American pop singer. Approvingly, the young, beautiful and energetic Christina Maria Aguilera grew up as a talented and famous singer of 2000s.
She was born to an Ecuadorian father, Fausto Aguilera, and an Irish descent mother, Shelly Kearns, who are both fluent in Spanish.
Growing up together along with her four siblings, Michael, Casey, Rachel, and Stephanie, Christina realized from the beginning of her life that she really wanted to be a singer.
Since her five years of age, Christina had known all the songs from the “Sound of Music”, all of which she sang at the neighborhood block parties.
Just a short period of time after that, she, as the youngest person ever, performed the National Anthem at professional sporting events in the area of Pittsburgh, where she lived with her mother after her parents’ divorce.
Seriously wanting to build her career in entertainment, ten-year-old Christina went to an open audition for “The Mickey Mouse Club” but was rejected.
She only got a favorable reply two years later. There, she became a “musketeer”, working with the not-yet-famous Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, and Keri Russell.
After two years of singing, dancing, and performing in Disney, in the request of manager Steve Kurtz, Christina sent a demo tape to RCA exec, Ron Fair.
At an early age, Aguilera developed a deep love of music — a gift she no doubts inherited from her musical mother, an experienced violinist, and pianist.
By the time she was in elementary school, Aguilera’s big voice had swept through a number of local talent shows, causing harsh envy from her schoolmates and even some parents.
It became so bad that Aguilera’s mother eventually made the decision to home-school her daughter.
Still, Aguilera continued to perform, and in 1990, she earned a spot on the nationally syndicated television program Star Search.
There, the nine-year-old prodigy wowed audiences with a mesmerizing rendition of Etta James’ “A Sunday Kind of Love,” placing second in the competition.
In 1993 Aguilera earned more national attention when she landed a spot as a “Mouseketeer” on The All-New Mickey Mouse Club.
Her fellow castmates were a collection of future stars, including Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, Ryan Gosling, and Keri Russell.
The ambitious singer lasted just two years on the program before she moved with her mother to Japan, where she recorded the hit single “All I Wanna Do” with Japanese pop icon Keizo Nakanishi. More success soon followed.
In 1998 Aguilera was tapped to sing “Reflection” on the soundtrack for the Walt Disney film Mulan. The singer made her debut at the all-female concert festival Lilith Fair the following year and signed with RCA Records.
Also in 1999, she released her debut album, Christina Aguilera, which went on to sell more than 8 million copies thanks in part to the chart-topping hits “Genie in a Bottle” and “What a Girl Wants.” The album earned Aguilera the 2000 Grammy Award for Best New Artist.
With fellow Mouseketeers Spears and Timberlake also lighting up the charts with their respective music, Aguilera became one of the leading faces of a group of teen pop stars.
But she wasn’t comfortable maintaining the squeaky clean image this sort of role foisted upon her.
After teaming up with Pink, Mya and Lil’ Kim on the popular single “Lady Marmalade,” Aguilera released her second album, Stripped, in October 2002.
As its title suggests, the pop superstar had embarked down a new path. Highly sexualized and more commanding than its predecessors, the album featured a number of hit singles, including “Dirrty,” “Beautiful” and “Make Over.”
In 2010 Aguilera returned to record stores with Bionic. She experimented with a more electronic-edged sound with this album, which featured collaborations with Le Tigre and M.I.A. While Bionic nearly reached the top of the charts, it failed to spawn any major hit singles.
That same year, Aguilera made her film debut in the musical Burlesque, co-starring alongside Cher. Aguilera also contributed several songs to the movie’s soundtrack, including “Show Me How You Burlesque” — a minor hit.
While the film was highly anticipated by many, it was ultimately maligned by critics and largely ignored by movie-goers.
Aguilera appeared to be stumbling professionally and personally around this time. At the Super Bowl in February 2011, she seemed to forget some of the lyrics to the National Anthem.
Not long after, the pop star was arrested for public intoxication. Both incidents sparked a wave of stories concerning her possible alcoholism.
By the spring of 2011, however, Aguilera had gotten back on her feet with a full-time spot on a new television competition, The Voice.
Aguilera served as a judge/coach for singers while competing against teams led by fellow musical talents Cee Lo Green, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine.
While some rumors circulated about the behind-the-scenes drama between Aguilera and her team members, the pop star proved to be a strong supporter of her protégées.
In the summer of 2011, she even contributed her vocals to Levine’s band, Maroon 5, for their mega-hit single “Moves Like Jagger.”
Following The Voice‘s Season 3 finale in 2012, Aguilera announced that she would be leaving the series for a time. She was replaced by Shakira for the show’s fourth season.
Around the time she left The Voice, Aguilera released the album Lotus. The record received a lukewarm reception.
She fared much better as a featured vocalist on rapper Pitbull’s single, “Feel This Moment,” which the duo performed together on the Season 4 finale of The Voice.
Around this time, Aguilera announced that she would be back for the show’s fifth season, and she later returned to the judge’s chair for Season 8.
In advance of the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival debut of the sci-fi romance Zoe, in which she enjoyed a starring role, Aguilera gave an interview to Paper magazine and appeared on its cover sans makeup.
The singer-actress explained her ever-transforming look, from “assless chaps and two toned-plaits” to “old Hollywood-inspired retro glam” to her more recent choices. ”
I’m at the place, even musically, where it’s a liberating feeling to be able to strip it all back and appreciate who you are and your raw beauty,” she said.
