Christina Aguilera is one of the biggest names in pop music. However, she’s quite different than most of the other pop princesses out there. Unlike performers such as Britney Spears, Mandy Moore and Jessica Simpson, Christina is truly an extraordinary singer. Her voice is on the level of legendary singers like Aretha Franklin and Patti LaBelle.
Christina’s newest song shows her vocal prowess, and also contains a powerful message. Read on to learn more about it!


1. Study - Read the dialog again to see how the vocab words are used.

Christina Aguilera’s latest hit song is called “Fighter.” It’s a song about a man who treated Christina badly. But instead of singing about her anger and hate for the man, Christina is thanking him for making her a stronger person. She feels that all the terrible things the man did to her have helped her learn that she must be a strong, independent, powerful woman in order to make it in the world.
Check out some of the lyrics:
After all of the stealing and cheating
You probably think that I hold resentment for you
But, uh uh, oh no, you’re wrong
‘Cause if it wasn’t for all that you tried to do
I wouldn’t know just how capable I am to pull through
So I wanna say thank you
‘Cause it makes me that much stronger
Makes me work a little bit harder
It makes me that much wiser
So thanks for making me a fighter
Made me learn a little bit faster
Made my skin a little bit thicker
Makes me that much smarter
So thanks for making me a fighter

“Fighter” is a great song. Even if a lesser singer was singing it, the lyrics are so good that they could carry the song. But with Christina singing, the song is just flat amazing. It’s one of the best pop songs I’ve heard in a long time.
I actually like Christina’s whole Stripped album. It has a really good mix of diverse songs – everything from slow ballads to upbeat rock songs. You should definitely check it out!
Rock on,
