Christina Aguilera, middle name Maria, is a popular American singer, songwriter and television personality. Before her stunning entrance into pop music scene, Aguilera appeared on Disney shows for children. Her debut album entitled Christina Aguilera was released in 1998 and became an instant success. It featured three singles that reached No. 1 position on Billboard 100: “Come On Over Baby”, “What a Girl Wants” and “Genie in a bottle”. Christina Aguilera net worth is currently estimated at $90 million.
Christina was born in New York, in a family of Fausto Xavier Aguilera and Shelley Loraine. Her father was from Ecuador and served in the US Army. Her mother, an American of mixed German and British decent, was a professional musician, violinist and pianist. Christina inherited her talent and passion for music. In one of her interviews Christina revealed that her father was a man of rough manners and used mental violence against his wife and his two daughters. Thus in her childhood music has served Christina as a safety net, a way to free her mind from depressing experiences and bad memories.
In a way, complicated childhood led her to the path that eventually brought Christina Aguilera net worth of $90 million.
Christina’s mother has encouraged her daughter’s aspiration to become a professional singer and used to take her to various local competitions and talent shows. Aguilera’s first victory in one of such competitions came when she was at the age of 8. After that she became widely known as a “small girl with a big voice”. In 1993 Christina became a cast member in The Mickey Mouse Club. Of Course, her salary for performing in this show was nothing compared to her later earnings, but as for a little girl Christina Aguilera net worth was quite impressive even back then. In this show Christina has worked with many other would-be pop stars, including Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Keri Russell and Ryan Gosling.
When Christine was 18 year old, she recorded a cover of Whitney Houston’s hit “Run to You” and sent it to Disney producers. The demo impressed Ron Fair, A&R executive, recording engineer and songwriter. Ron led Christina to the breakthrough in her career and helped her sign with RCA Records. Her first album Christina Aguilera was released the same year and became a great financial success. In 2000 Christine released two more albums Mi Reflejo and My Kind of Christmas, in 2002 her fourth album Stripped appeared in the market. Her next album Back to Basics was finished in 2006 and included some soul, jazz and blues rhythms. The sales of these albums are responsible for the biggest part of Christina Aguilera net worth. Her later albums did not receive such a positive feedback.
