|In less than a year from the day that she burst onto the world musical landscape, Christina Aguilera has scored two #1 smash hit singles, watched sales of her chart-topping RCA debut album surpass the eight million mark worldwide, headlined the Super Bowl Half-Time Show, performed for the President, and to top it all off, took home the Grammy for Best New Artist. With current plans that include a mammoth summer/fall national tour, Mi Reflejo, and a holiday album of seasonal favorites, Christina Aguilera continues to provide evidence that she is the premier musical voice of her generation. |
Christina first began performing at age six in school talent shows. At age eight, she appeared on the nationally syndicated "Star Search," at ten she sang the National Anthem for the Pittsburgh Steelers and Penguins, and then, at twelve, she joined the ensemble cast of "The New Mickey Mouse Club," appearing on the Orlando-based show along with future stars Britney Spears, J.C. and Justin of 'N Sync, and Keri Russell of "Felicity." After two years, the show ended and Christina got the opportunity to travel overseas to further hone her musical skills. In 1997, Christina performed in places as far flung as Tokyo, Japan and Brasov, Romania, but always with her eye on the same goal. "I always wanted to have my own album recorded and released before I graduated high school," says Christina. She certainly took quick strides toward that goal.

|Ever since the mainstream acceptance of Latin pop in the late '90s, it's become fairly common for artists who first came to prominence singing in Spanish to put out English-language albums, but MI REFLEJO is one of the few examples of the opposite process. Teen pop goddess Christina Aguilera, who comes from Ecuadorian stock, uses this album as an opportunity to pay homage to her roots. Sure, it doesn't hurt that MI REFLEJO will endear her to a whole new audience, but the singer has professed a desire to do something like this that dates back to her pre-icon days.|
|A few of the tunes here are simply versions of her previous hits--including the breakthrough smash "Genie in a Bottle"--with Spanish lyrics. Most of the album, however, features new songs chosen specifically for this project and recorded with a Latin pop approach in mind. Needless to say, Ricky Martin-loving Latin pop enthusiasts will find as much to enjoy here as diehard Aguilera fans.|
