Since the early nineties we have seen Christina Aguilera blossom into a young woman. Some would say she is worthless, disgusting and a terrible role model, while many others would claim her to be the voice of the new generation. Her soulful voice and powerful lyrics are some of the most poignant of our time. Since her debut on Disney Channel as a solo artist with the hit single, 'Reflection' -- Christina has challenged the world with her strength and passion for being the woman she was created to be.
In the song, 'Reflection', Christina sets the stage with her youthful ballad sharing about the trials of being a young woman that the world says they know, but they truly do not. The song ends on a powerful commitment to be the woman she sees in the mirror, despite social expectations or what people say. The real Christina Aguilera. The song accompanied the film 'Mulan' from Disney which gave young girls the encouragement to be strong, intelligent women despite any cultural norms. I remember as a teenager listening to this song, and truly relating to the growing pains of becoming a young woman. The realization that there was more to life than pretend and make believe, knowing that I was an individual and wanting that person inside to be loved, appreciated, and viewed as beautiful. Christina set the stage for the rest of her career in the music industry with the exceptional song!
