Five-time Grammy Award winner Christina Aguilera was named “Ambassador Against Hunger” of the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP).
“A child dies every 6 seconds of hunger, which is a huge statistic for me,” Aguilera told Oprah Winfrey. “After having my own child, I just had to be a part of it and do something about it and help change that situation.” Photo: WFP/Rein Skullerud
Aguilera, one of the most successful recording artists of the decade, has a track record of interest and commitment to hunger issues. In January, she performed in MTV’s ‘Hope for Haiti’ telethon that raised more than $60 million for disaster relief in Haiti, including for WFP relief work. In May of this year, she traveled with WFP to Haiti to see first-hand how food assistance projects are helping to rebuild devastated communities.
NEW VOICE FOR THE HUNGRY CHRISTINA AGUILERA NAMED WFP AMBASSADOR AGAINST HUNGER
Aguilera described her work with WFP as a life-changing experience and said she plans to go back to Haiti soon: “I want to check on the situation there and help to deliver food. I want to visit orphanages and schools there and try to do my part in helping.” “Christina Aguilera’s passion and dedication to hungry children runs deep, and it will make her a wonderful champion in the fight against hunger,” said Josette Sheeran, Executive Director of WFP, welcoming Aguilera to the WFP team. Aguilera is asking her fans to join her in the fight against hunger by going to www.wfp.org/christina or by texting WFP to 90999 (US only) to make a $5 donation - enough to feed a child in school for an entire month.

Still our Hero The sexy crooner is back with a new album, Euphoria, and is burning up the charts with “Cuando Me Enamoro.” He took some time out of his extremely hectic schedule to talk exclusively with LatinTrends about...
His New Single
“Right now we are working with two singles simultaneously. The first, Cuando Me Enamoro, has had an incredible response in the States. It features vocals by my friend, Juan Luis Guerra, and it’s already #1 on the Billboard Latin charts. The second single, I Like It, is a collaboration with Pitbull, whom I have always admired. This single is already ascending the charts, and it’s playing in the clubs, especially in Europe.”
His Collaboration with Pitbull
“It was easy and fun. He is a really down to earth guy, and at the same time very professional. It’s been really exciting for me to experiment new territories with the help of Pitbull.”
Breaking His Own Record
“I feel very fortunate with the response the fans have given to these new tracks and with the welcoming they have given me. It’s always an honor to break any record, and to break your own is even more flattering and fulfilling. I’m very pleased and really looking forward to what’s coming once the album is released in July.”
His Other Upcoming Projects
“There are still many surprises to come with Euphoria. Duets with Akon or Usher, for sure. This is definitely the most eclectic and diverse album of my career.”
“Ser Latino, oh yes! Un orgullo, cantar en Ingles y que te acepten en UK o Sudáfrica is an amazing feeling. Latinos are hard working talented people; there are simply no frontiers for us. I’m really proud of being Latino and the fact that I can represent this community by spreading my music all over the world is a great pleasure.” LATINTRENDS.COM
