Two of Hollywood’s most iconic women, one stage, one performance. During the American Music Awards, or AMA’s, world renown pop icon, Christina Aguilera took to the center stage to perform Whitney Houston’s ‘I Will Always Love You’. For those of you who do not know who Whitney Houston is, she was one of the most iconic singers of her time. She rocked it from the 80’s, all the way until she passed away in 2012.
Some of her ballads include: I Will Always Love You, I Wanna Dance With Somebody, It’s Not Right But It’s Ok, Heartbreak Hotel, Count On Me, and many more. She had a voice like no other in this world.
Christina Aguilera is no average joe. She’s been in the music industry since she was a little girl, appearing in the Mickey Mouse Club, along with other singers such as Britney Spears & Justin Timberlake.
Aguilera became a pop sensation in the late 90’s when she dropped her first– and my favorite– song ‘Genie In A Bottle’. She is also known for: Fighter, Beautiful, What A Girl Wants, I Turn To You, Lady Marmalade, Candyman, and much more.
That’s one thing these two lovely women have in common, their love for music. Both Aguilera and Houston did a few movies as well.
Miss Houston played in: The Bodyguard, Waiting To Exhale, & The Preacher’s Wife.
Aguilera only played in one film, but killed it! Everyone has seen the movie ‘Burlesque’ at least once!
I love both of these women. I have a lot of their music on my iPod… But these women, even though had similar careers, are nothing alike!
Nobody could come close to singing the notes that Whitney could hit, not even Mariah Carey. It didn’t take just talent, it took hard work and dedication, which is something even Mariah Carey has given up on during her older age. So, my point being, even though Aguilera has a beautiful voice, she does not have a Whitney Houston voice.
Aguilera kind of just screams when she sings, while putting some edge and aggression behind it, which I think is amazing, it’s one of the reasons why I love her. I think she did an ok job while performing Miss Houston’s song, but I do feel that we could have found someone who could have hit those notes a little more gracefully, like Miss Houston did when she made the song.
And of course, the internet world took this moment by storm! There were many mixed emotions and feelings about Aguilera singing the hit tune.
Of course we all know it could have been way worse, for instance, they could’ve asked Mariah Carey to do it! Now that’s a scary thought. I am not hating on her, it’s just anyone who has watched her within the past year will understand where I am coming from.
