Christina Aguilera began performing in talent shows when she was six years old. She appeared on Star Search at the age of eight. At ten she sang the National Anthem for the Pittsburgh Steelers, and at twelve she joined the cast of The New Mickey Mouse Club. If she seems in a hurry, she is. "I've wanted to be a star since I was six or seven," she said. The release of her debut album soared to the top of the music charts, scoring two number one hit singles with sales surpassing the ten million mark. All this, along with winning the 2000 Grammy for Best New Artist, was not bad for a kid who had not yet turned twenty. Her success continued with Mi Reflejo, the smash Spanish language version of her debut, followed by her hit holiday release, My Kind of Christmas. With her second album, Stripped, certified 3x platinum, and her film debut in the animated movie Shark Tale, Christina's talent provides her with endless possibilities for the future.
