Christina Aguilera (Real-Life Reader Biography). Bookseller Inventory #
Synopsis: Real-Life Reader Biographies present the lives of contemporary role models for young readers. These are the stories of real men and women who, despite many obstacles, followed their dreams.
In less than a year from the day she burst onto the music scene, Christina Aguilera scored two number one smash hit singles, watched sales of her debut album surpass the eight million mark, headlined the Super Bowl Half-Time Show, performed for President Bill Clinton, and then took home the Grammy for Best New Artist. Not bad for a kid who had not yet turned twenty.
Christina began performing in school 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. But her rise to stardom was not an easy one: she was taunted and teased by her classmates who felt she was more show-off than anything. "My dreams of becoming a recording artist have kept me going." Leaving her classmates behind, Christina continues to rise to the top. Young People's Biography.
