Christina Aguilera Spanish album you definitely need to. This is her first
album in Spanish and 6 of her hottest English hits are now in Spanish with

Where is Cristina from? Or...where are her parents from? Okay, where are her ancestors from?? Was it Shakira or Cristina who was from Colombia? I don't recall. Anyway, I thought it was interesting what QuePasa.com wrote:

Quote:
Perhaps the most intriguing aspect of the telecast was hearing the performers bounce between languages. Winner Juan Luis Guerra began speaking in accented English before moving to pure Spanish without even seeming to realize it. Shakira’s English was impressively smooth, meaning her crossover potential is enormous. Latina Christina Aguilera’s performances of “Contigo en La Distancia” and “Genio Atrapado” were marred by her labored Spanish;


Saludos, MadridMan

Although not a fan, I do believe that her relatives are from Ecuador.

Cristina Aguilera's father is from Ecuador. However, she can't speak Spanish at all. The only reason why she has a new album in Spanish is because there are lots of Spanish speakers who will be willing to buy it.

I don't understand why some Spanish speakers who live in the US don't teach their sons / daughters Spanish. Don't you think it would be great if you children could speak both English and Spanish?.

Regards,

Antonio

the reason why many parents didn't teach their kids spanish and why some still don't is because of the descrimination against the hispanics a long time ago. People that came to this country wanted their kids to speak english so they wouldn't be discriminated against and to be american, so they would often give them american first names and not teach them spanish. That was the majority of the reason of why many young adults whose parents are from another country don't speak spanish, supposedly so they wouldn't receive the same discrimination their parents did and so they wouldn't have an accent.

I think that spanish is the most beautiful language in the world, and I'm sure most of you will agree with me. Nothing sounds better than hearing my fiancee say,"Te amo". When we have kids, which, won't be anytime in the near future, I'll speak to them in english and she will speak to them in spanish...what a shame it would be if they didn't learn the most beautiful language in the world.

Cristina Aguilera's parents divorced when she was very young and she was reared by her mother, a Yankee, in Pittsburgh. She didn't really have an opportunity to learn Spanish.

Other 'cross-overs':

Selena didn't speak any Spanish either, but had she not made albums in Spanish she certainly wouldn't have become as famous as she did, since she didn't get anywhere with her intial foray into American pop.

Linda Rondstat - she has a beautiful voice for mariachi, but a few Spanish lessons wouldn't hurt.

And Shakira is from Colombia, but her father is arabe.
