Baku, Azerbaijan, March 16
Baku City Circuit (BCC) has announced that one of the most accomplished performers of the last decade, Christina Aguilera, will headline the Saturday night post-Qualifying concert at the 2018 Formula 1 Azerbaijan Grand Prix on April 28.
In a change from previous race weekends, this year’s concerts will be staged at Baku’s famous Crystal Hall.
As an award-winning singer, songwriter and actress, who has sold more than 43 million records worldwide through her seven albums, Christina Aguilera continues to impress global audiences with her mesmerizing and timeless vocals. In addition to achieving four #1 singles on the Billboard hot 100 Chart and winning six Grammy Awards, she has collaborated with many other legendary artists including Andrea Bocelli, Tony Bennett and Elton John.
Christina Aguilera was named one of the “100 Greatest Singers of All Time” by Rolling Stone Magazine and was listed as one of the 100 Most Influential People in the World by Time Magazine. Her chart-topping singles - including “Genie in a Bottle,” “Beautiful,” “Come on Over” – among many others, have smashed international records, making her one of the most successful pop vocalists of all time.
In addition to singing and songwriting, Christina has appeared in multiple films and television series including the film BURLESQUE, for which she also co-wrote the Golden Globe nominated song “Bound to You.” In 2018, she will be seen in Warner Bros’ LIFE OF THE PARTY and the independent film ZOE, which will debut at the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival.
Her philanthropic work includes her role as a United Nations ambassador for the World Food Programme.
