Christina Aguilera is known for her persistent need to over-sing but at this week’s 2011 CLSA she somehow managed to use restraint. The singer, who is preparing a new album for 2012, performed several of her hits at the event, including ‘Beautiful’ and a Reggae-styled version of ‘What A Girl Wants’.
Aguilera has recently been enjoying incredible success as her duet with Maroon 5, ‘Moves Like Jagger’, has been resting atop the Billboard Hot 100 for 3 weeks. Watch Aguilera’s showing below:
Aguilera still has a lot to learn about controlling her voice but it is wonderful to see that she is finally learning that louder does not mean better. Also, she seems to have been inspired by the massive crowd response she received at this year’s Grammy Awards ceremony because she is once again experimenting with her often ignored upper registers.
Perhaps, Aguilera’s conversations with Adele – her latest inspiration – have ecnouraged her to focus more on finding meaning in her material instead of screaming at people until they believe her. If that is the case then her new album could be the hit that she needs.
