Christina María Aguilera (born December 18, 1980) is an American singer and actress. Born in Staten Island, New York and raised in Rochester and Wexford, Pennsylvania, she appeared on television series Star Search and The Mickey Mouse Club as a child. Aguilera rose to prominence with her self-titled debut album in 1999, which spawned three US number-one singles: "Genie in a Bottle", "What a Girl Wants" and "Come On Over Baby (All I Want Is You)". Her follow-up records, Mi Reflejo and My Kind of Christmas (2000), experienced moderate success worldwide. During the promotion of these albums, Aguilera's image was marketed as a bubblegum pop singer.

Displeased with her lack of input in her image and music, Aguilera assumed creative control for her follow up album, Stripped (2002), which draws influences from many music genres including soul, hip hop, and rock. Aguilera's fifth studio album, Back to Basics (2006), incorporates elements of 1920s–1940s blues, soul, and jazz music. In 2010, Aguilera released her sixth studio album Bionic featuring elements from electronic genres and starred alongside Cher in the film Burlesque. Her seventh studio album, Lotus (2012), is primarily a pop album. Since 2011, Aguilera has served as a coach on US television series The Voice, having appeared on four of its five seasons. Besides her work in the entertainment industry, Aguilera was involved in charitable activities through human rights, world issues, and her work as a UN ambassador for the World Food Programme.

Aguilera was established as a pop icon and has garnered honorific titles including "Princess of Pop". Her work has earned her numerous awards and accolades, including four Grammy Awards, one Latin Grammy Award and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. To date, Aguilera has sold 17.4 million albums in the United States, and 50 million records worldwide. Rolling Stone ranked her at number 58 on their list of 100 Greatest Singers of All Time, becoming the youngest singer to appear on the list. Billboard magazine recognized Aguilera as the 20th best-selling artist of the 2000s decade. She was one of Time's 100 Most Influential People in the World in 2013.
