Vocal wonder Christina Aguilera has demonstrated time and time again in her illustrious career that when it comes to raw, unadulterated vocal talent very few can touch her. While both revered for her prowess as a vocal powerhouse and criticized for her indulgent technique, it goes without question this 31 year old pop star was born with a one-of-a-kind set of golden pipes.
See where it all began by watching Christina’s soulful cover of R&B great Toni Braxton‘s first single ever, “Another Sad Love Song” after the jump.
It’s clear why Christina Aguilera is the global pop star she is today selling close to 50 million albums worldwide; and arguably the best vocalist of her time, second only to Beyonce. Christina kept the oversinging she’s known for in check and stayed true to Toni’s version matching the original note for note, run for run—particularly the bright head note at the end. Respect.
