Linda Perry picked Christina Aguilera’s first take for Beautiful!

Christina Aguilera is an American pop singer, songwriter, and record producer. Hits include Beautiful, Dirrty, Genie In A Bottle, What A Girl Wants, and cover versions of Car Wash and Fever.

Christina started her career along with Britney and Justin Timberlake in The Mickey Mouse Club, an American TV show.

These days, Christina sells out stadiums worldwide and has inspired thousands of young singers.


Beautiful was done in one vocal take

Originally written by Linda Perry, best known for her massive hit What’s Going On with her band Four Non Blondes, Linda wrote Beautiful and refused to play it to anyone, claiming she knew it was going to be a huge hit and purposely saved it for the right artist.

Linda ended up not just writing but also producing the song with Christina Aguilera on vocals. During the recording of the song, she insisted on keeping the first take of Christina’s vocal since, as she said, was exactly what she was looking for. It wasn’t perfect, but it was beautiful, just like the message of the song.

Possibly Christina Aguilera’s biggest hit, Beautiful charted at #1 in most countries worldwide. The song got the Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance at the 2004 Grammy Awards, so Linda was clearly right, that first vocal take was something special.

At the same ceremony, Beautiful was nominated for Song Of The Year and Best Remixed Album.

The music video for Beautiful was directed by Swedish Jonas Akerlund, who also made videos for Madonna, Cardigans, and Lady GaGa.
