Aguilera, who also served as a coach on "The Voice" for the first three seasons of the show, has sold over 50 million albums worldwide and recorded six #1 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Billboard named Aguilera as the top female artist of 2000 and 2003 and Rolling Stone named her one of the 30 best voices of our decade. In 2013 she was named as one of Time's 100 Most Influential People in the World.
Flo Rida burst onto the scene in 2007 with his record-breaking #1 hit, "Low (Feat. T-Pain)," which spent 10 consecutive weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100 chart. With worldwide sales exceeding 12 million, "Low" is one of the most successful digital singles of the past decade, making its way into the Guinness Book of World Records as 2008's best-selling download in the United States. In 2009, Flo Rida broke his own record when "Right Round" made history with more than 636,000 digital sales in its first week of release - still the biggest debut digital sales week for any single ever. All told, Flo Rida has sold nearly 80 million singles worldwide.
"Say Something" is the breakout track from A Great Big World and has made quite an impact climbing the iTunes and radio charts. The band, which features New York-based singer-songwriting duo Ian Axel and Chad Vaccarino, has received critical acclaim from both the press and music community for the undeniably emotional song. They are also known for the viral hit "This Is the New Year," which solidified them as an indie pop presence with staggering YouTube views and numerous syncs on film and television. The duo crafted a six-song EP funded entirely on Kickstarter by fans which got them signed to Black Magnetic/Epic Records and are known for their positive, piano-driven pop songs and heartwarming lyrics. The group's debut full-length album "Is There Anybody Out There?" will feature both the original and Christina Aguilera version of "Say Something," and will be available for pre-order on Nov. 4th.
Grammy Award-nominated Bareilles first achieved mainstream critical praise in 2007 with her widely successful hit "Love Song," which reached #1 in 22 countries around the world. Since then, the Eureka, CA native has gone on to sell over 1 million copies of her debut album, earn 3 Grammy nominations including Song of the Year and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for "Love Song." Following her debut album, "Little Voice," Bareilles' critically acclaimed sophomore release "Kaleidoscope Heart" was released in 2010, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. The album yielded the hit single "King of Anything," which was certified platinum by the RIAA. Her highly acclaimed third studio album, "The Blessed Unrest," was released this summer and debuted at #2 on the Billboard album chart.
