After Christina Aguilera (40) gave a performance at the People’s Choice Awards, she was awarded the first ever Music Icon Award. The 40-year-old singer has already won five Grammy Awards during her impressive career, made eight albums and won several other awards, but this award was special to her, she said in her acceptance speech.

 

“It’s a huge honour”
“It is a huge honor to receive the Icon Award. I have been working in the music industry for 30 years and I try to pass messages through my music. My music is for all fighters in this world who believe in themselves. Songs like You Are Beautiful and Fighter have been inspiring to a lot of people, I know because I’ve gotten a lot of emails and messages about them. That touches me,” said Christina.

The singer thanked her dancers, without whom she “wouldn’t be who she is today”. But Aguilera especially thanked her children Max (13) and Summer (7), as well as her fiancé Matthew Rutler. “Matty, thank you for always being there. And of course my real icons, my angels, my babies Max and Summer. I love you.”
