Christina Aguilera

Christina Aguilera is an American pop singer, songwriter and record producer.

Aguilera started her career in The Mickey Mouse Club, an American TV show, alongside Britney and Justin Timberlake.

These days, Christina Aguilera sells out stadiums worldwide and has inspired thousands of young women. Christina Aguilera’s hits include ‘Beautiful’, ‘Genie In A Bottle’ and ‘What A Girl Wants’.

‘Beautiful’ was written by Linda Perry (who had the massive hit ‘What’s Going On’ with her band 4 Non Blondes).

At first, Linda refused to play ‘Beautiful’ to anyone. She said she knew it was going to be a huge hit and waited for the right artist to come along. She finally settled on Christina Aguilera after dismissing several gigantic pop acts.

Perry was so fond of the song she was even present during Christina’s first vocal take which Linda insisted on keeping!

Christina Aguilera’s Beautiful

One of Christina Aguilera’s biggest hits, ‘Beautiful’ charted at #1 in most countries worldwide. It claimed the award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance at the 2004 Grammy Awards. Linda was right, that first vocal take was special!

At the same ceremony, ‘Beautiful’ was nominated for Song Of The Year and Best Remixed Album.

The music video for ‘Beautiful’ was directed by Swedish Jonas Åkerlund who has also made videos for Madonna, The Cardigans, and Lady GaGa.

Beautiful – Lyrics

BeautifulEvery day is so wonderful
Then suddenly, it’s hard to breathe
Now and then I get insecure
From all the pain, I’m so ashamed
I am beautiful, no matter what they say
