Product Overview

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.

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. 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. In early 1998, after finishing some demos and shopping for a record deal, Christina auditioned to sing "Reflection" for Disney's animated film Mulan. The filmmakers needed someone "who could hit a high E above middle C," according to Christina, who then cut a one-take demo in her living room singing to a karaoke tape of Whitney Houston's "I Wanna Run To You." The demo was rushed to Disney, and within a day, Christina was in a Los Angeles studio recording "Reflection." That same week, RCA Records signed her to a record contract. Mulan premiered in June 1998, and "Reflection" turned into a Top 15 A/C single going on to garner a Golden Globe nomination for Best Original Song in a Motion Picture and Christina the attention of some of the best writers and producers in the industry. Christina Aguilera's breakthrough year began with her first #1 single "Genie In A Bottle," which stayed atop the charts for five consecutive weeks and rocketed the album to #1 upon its release in August 1999. The follow-up single "What A Girl Wants" reached the coveted first Billboard Hot 100 #1 slot of 2000 and helped to push the album into platinum territory six times over. What made all this commercial success so much sweeter, were Christina's two Grammy nominations for Best New Artist and Best Female Pop Vocal performance. In February 2000, Christina's incredible ride to the top reached new heights as Sheryl Crow, Melissa Etheridge and Sara McLaughlan announced, "The Grammy for Best New Artist goes to--Christina Aguilera." "It was an incredible shock for me," Christina recalls of that amazing night. "I was completely unprepared. My album had been out the least amount of time compared to everyone else, so I thought there was no way I'd win. But I was overwhelmed, shocked and overjoyed all at the same time." Over all, Christina Aguilera is as overwhelmed as she is thrilled by her enormous success, but she remains reflective and grateful. "It's been quite a roller-coaster ride," she laughs, "But I think I've grown and learned a lot about myself. In this business, it's often all about hype, record sales, and a crazy schedule of traveling, performances, and it can be easy to get lost in all that. But for me, the greatest thing is being able to interact with fans and touch peoples' lives. I know that's a greater accomplishment than selling records. For that I give thanks. I simply love the job I'm doing."

Review ...Aguilera breaks rank by virtue of her magnificent voice and by refusing to leave behind her R&B inflections, which give a distinct flavor to every song on the disc, including those that have been specifically tailored for the Latin market.

Review ...This album will certainly be a major contender at [the] Latin Grammys since no other artist has realized English to Spanish crossover dreams with the kind of grace Miss A. has demonstrated here. Where this disc will surely make its greatest impact is in Latin markets, where Aguilera's crisp and unique R&B styling are almost non-existent.

Review Call it the fulfillment of a lifelong dream or a smart marketing move (or both), but Mi Reflejo almost guarantees that the diminutive diva will expand her colonial powers south of the border... Christina has always been at her best when she handles up tempo material, such as..."Falsas Esperanzas" and "Cuando No Es Contigo," which both feature bouncy rhythms and splashes of horns that breathe life into the album.
