HASH(0x8e5c9c30) out of 5 stars The little girl with the big voice 12 Nov. 2010
By rmcrae - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Although this biography is meant for the middle school/high school set, it's a well detailed look at Christina's life for adults as well a great source for a book report or class presentation for students.

The Greenwood Biographies series takes on the story of pop diva Christina Aguilera. Beginning with her birth to parents Fausto Aguilera (a U.S. Army Sergeant) and Shelly Fidler (a Spanish translator), little Christina grew up witnessing the horrific domestic violence her father inflicted on her mother and was sometimes a target herself. After the birth of second daughter Rachel, Shelly packed up her kids and moved to her mother's home just outside of Pittsburgh. It was there that Christina's grandmother discovered her love of singing and encouraged her to compete in local talent shows.

Not only did she have a love for jazz and blues (music way beyond her years), but Christina possessed a voice spanning four octaves so powerful she was deservedly billed "the little girl with the big voice". It was amazing that a little Catholic girl from Pittsburgh sounded like a blues mama from the speakeasies and jazz clubs of the early 20th century when she opened her mouth.

Because she was getting so much attention for her talent, jealous classmates bullied her in school and the cruelty forced Aguilera's family to move to a smaller Pittsburgh area called Wexford. Fortunately the pre-teen was able to be around other kids who also shared her passion for performing once she joined The Micky Mouse Club. Her castmates (including future stars Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, and Ryan Gosling) nicknamed her "the Diva" for obvious reasons. By the age of 18, Christina hit the big time with the Genie image created by her label that she claimed was far from who she really was.

There's coverage of the depression she fell into during the recording of her second album Stripped, which went on to become a big seller and garnered the singer a Grammy Award for Beautiful in February 2004. As well as her relationship and marriage to music exec Jordan Bratman that led to the birth of their son Max. Since the book was published in September, there's no mention of her recent split from Jordan.

Author Mary Anne Donovan does a fine job of exploring topics like domestic violence statistics concerning military families and the evolution of pop music and MTV that tie in to Christina's story rather than meandering in a longwinded fashion.

If you're interested in taking a look at Christina's life story, be sure to check this book out. It's worth it.
