Ook Christina Aguilera zet, net als Justin Timberlake en Britney Spears, haar eerste muzikale stappen in de Mickey Mouse Club. Het programma stopt echter in 1994 en het lukt de zangeres niet om een platencontract binnen te slepen.

Vanwege haar stembereik mag ze, in 1998, een nummer zingen op de soundtrack van de Disney-film Mulan. Als het nummer een nominatie krijgt voor een Golden Globe breekt Aguilera alsnog door.

Van haar debuutalbum, dat eind 1999 verschijnt, wordt Genie In A Bottle een top 2-notering in de Top 40.

In 2002 verschijnt haar tweede album, Stripped, waarvan vijf singles in de Top 40 terecht komen.

Vier jaar later verschijnt Back To Basics, wat zelfs een dubbel-cd was. Van dat album is Hurt het meest succesvol met een tweede plaats.

In 2011 scoort de zangeres, samen met Maroon 5, haar eerste nummer 1-notering. Moves Like Jagger staat drie weken bovenaan de Top 40.

Na Bionic is Lotus het vijfde studioalbum van de zangeres dat eind 2012 verschijnt. Geen van de singles bereikt de Top 40.

Als Christina Aguilera in 2013 het nummer Say Something van A Great Big World hoort tijdens So You Think You Can Dance regelt ze een opname met het duo. Het resulteert halverwege februari 2014 in de 21e notering van de zangeres in de Media Markt Top 40.


Songtekst

Oh, yeah

She was so young with such innocent eyes
She always dreamt of a fairytale life
And all the things that your money can't buy
She thought that he was a wonderful guy
Then suddenly, things seemed to change
It was the moment she took on his name
He took his anger out on her face
She kept all of her pain locked away

Oh mother, we're stronger
From all of the tears you have shed
Oh mother, don't look back
'Cause he'll never hurt us again

So mother, I thank you
For all you've done and still do
You got me, I got you
Together we always pull through
We always pull through
We always pull through
Oh mother, oh mother, oh mother

It was the day that he turned on the kids
That she knew she just had to leave him
So many voices inside of her head
Saying over and over and over,
"You deserve much more than this."

She was so sick of believing the lies and trying to hide
Covering the cuts and bruises (cuts and bruises)
So tired of defending her life, she could have died
Fighting for the lives of her children

Oh mother, we're stronger
From all of the tears you have shed (all of the tears you have shed)
Oh mother, don't look back
'Cause he'll never hurt us again (he'll never hurt us again)

So mother, I thank you (thank you)
For all that you've done and still do (still do)
You got me, I got you, (yeah, you got me and I got you, ooh)
Oh mother, oh mother, oh mother

All of your life you have spent
Burying hurt and regret
But mama, he'll never touch us again

For everytime he tried to break you down
Just remember who's still around
It's over, and we're stronger
And we'll never have to go back again

Oh mother, we're stronger
From all of the tears you have shed
Oh mother, don't look back (oh mother don't look back again)
'Cause he'll never hurt us again ('cause he'll never hurt us again)

So mother, I thank you (and I thank you for everything you've done)
For all that you've done and still do (together we always move on)
You got me, I got you, (you got me, I got you)
Together we always pull through (always pull through)
We always pull through, yeah

I love you mom
