August 2019 has given Christina Aguilera much to celebrate.
For, just days before commemorating the 20th anniversary of the release of her self-titled debut album (August 24), Xtina was on hand at the kick-off ceremony for the D23 Expo (the Disney fan convention). There, the 38-year-old was among a dozen famous faces honored with the prestigious ‘Disney Legend’ award – an esteemed honor bestowed to individuals who have ‘made remarkable contributions to the Disney legacy.’ Joining the ranks of Robert Downey, Jr., Robin Roberts, and more, fans familiar with Aguilera’s career trajectory know her longstanding history with Mickey Mouse as she got her start as a Mouseketeer kid on ‘The All New Mickey Mouse Club’ in the early 1990s before jump-starting her recording career with 1998’s ‘Reflection’ (the theme song from the animated feature film, ‘Mulan’).
In addition to accepting the honor as a Disney legend – an accomplishment she bragged was ‘better than winning a Grammy’ – the five-time Grammy winner blessed the audience with a stirring live performance of the song that started it all.

Wow! She did that. Go Xtina!
