December 18: Christina Aguilera is 33-years-old today.

Christina & Britney Spears
Born Christina María Aguilera on Staten Island New York, Aguilera first appeared on national television in 1990 as a contestant on the Star Search program, and went on to star in Disney Channel's television series The Mickey Mouse Club from 1993–1994 along with Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake.  Aguilera then signed with RCA Records after recording "Reflection," the 1998 theme song for the animated film Mulan.

 Aside from being known for her singing, music videos and image, musically, she includes themes of dealing with public scrutiny, her childhood, and female empowerment in her music.
In 1999, Aguilera came to prominence following her debut album Christina Aguilera, which was a commercial success spawning three number one singles on the Billboard Hot 100—"Genie in a Bottle," "What a Girl Wants," and "Come On Over Baby (All I Want Is You.)"

A Latin pop album, Mi Reflejo, and several collaborations followed which garnered Aguilera worldwide success, though she was displeased with her lack of input in her music and image.

After changing her management in 2002, Aguilera took creative control over her second studio album, Stripped. The album's second single, "Beautiful," was a commercial success and helped the album's commercial performance amidst controversy over Aguilera's image.

Aguilera followed up Stripped with Back to Basics in 2006. The album combined elements of soul, jazz, and blues music. Aguilera's fourth studio album Bionic (2010), which incorporated aspects of R&B, electro-pop, and synth-pop, was met with mixed reviews and poor sales.

Britney, Madona and Christina 
She made her feature film debut in the musical Burlesque in 2010, earning Aguilera a Golden Globe nomination for Best Original Song. Aguilera's work has earned her numerous awards and accolades, including a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, four Grammy Awards and a Latin Grammy Award, amongst fifteen and three nominations respectively.
Rolling Stone ranked her number fifty-eight on their list of the 100 Greatest Singers of All Time, ranking as the youngest and only artist on the list under the age of thirty. She was ranked the 20th Artist of the 2000–10 decade by Billboard and is the second top selling single artist of the 2000's behind Madonna.

Aguilera has sold nearly 50 million albums worldwide making her one of the best-selling music artists of all time.

Apart from her work in music, she has also dedicated much of her time as a philanthropist for charities, human rights and world issues.
