Singer Christina Aguilera will soon be recognized with the honor of People’s Voice at the upcoming 39th Annual People’s Choice Awards in January 2013.
The People’s Voice award honors Aguilera’s ability as an artist to connect with millions of fans across various genres. In the official People’s Choice Awards press release, reality producer Mark Burnett revealed that Christina Aguilera will perform live along with country star Jason Aldean who will also take the People’s Choice stage.
Aguilera recently announced her break from NBC’s The Voice to focus on solo music and other projects. Christina released her new album, Lotus, back in November, which debuted at #7 on the Billboard 200 chart with 73,408 units sold in its first week.
Lotus features collaborations with Max Martin, Alex Da Kid and Sia who appeared on The Voice as Aguilera’s mentor. Lotus also included duets with fellow The Voice coaches Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton. “Love Your Body,” the album’s lead single was Christina’s most successful song since 2008 with over 108,000 digital copies sold in its debut week.
The 39th annual People’s Choice Awards will take place on January 9, 2013 live from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.
