You're reading: Christina Aguilera to give a double show

Singers of her scale seldom perform here, and she was guaranteed to deliver a magnificent show. Yet there was a downside. The concert was going to take place at Ukraina music hall on Oct. 20, which meant very pricy tickets and limited number of seats. True enough, most of the tickets were gone several weeks before the show. However, there is still hope for anyone who desperately wants to see Christina live. Inspired by the public excitement with the show, the organizers added another gig to the program, set to take place the following day at Palats Sportu. Tickets will of course be much cheaper – from Hr 200, and there is plenty of space inside the concert hall – we all can get in, if we hurry.

A star is born

Christina Maria Aguilera was born Dec. 18, 1980 in New York to an Ecuadorian father and a mother of Irish descent. Having discovered her singing abilities at an early age, Christina tried out on various talent shows and many were impressed with the “big voice” of a little girl. It wasn’t until her appearance on The New Mickey Mouse Club on the Disney Channel in 1993 that her singing career started seriously moving up. In 1998, she recorded the song “Reflection” for Disney’s animated film “Mulan” and was signed to RCA Records. A year later she debuted with the album “Christina Aguilera” and found herself among most promising young pop stars in the US and worldwide. Her hit singles “Genie in a Bottle” and “What a Girl Wants” topped the charts and made her main rival to another pop star and former Mickey Mouse Club colleague, Britney Spears. Little did anyone know, that almost ten years later, the career of Spears will be going down the drain, while Aguilera’s star would be rising higher and higher.
