Christina Aguilera is a WFP Ambassador Against Hunger, lending her voice to WFP and the fight against hunger.

In 2009, she became the official spokesperson for World Hunger Relief, a campaign sponsored by Yum! Brands, which has generated over $148 million in funding for WFP and other hunger relief agencies.

Christina visited Rwanda where she spent time at a refugee camp. She was deeply moved hearing from the refugees about escaping violence in the neighboring Democratic Republic of Congo.

After the January 2010 earthquake in Haiti, the five-time Grammy award winner was among artists who headlined for the “Hope for Haiti Now” Telethon, one of the most widely syndicated fundraising events in history, raising over $66 million in relief aid.

As the official spokeswoman for the Yum! Brands World Hunger Relief Campaign, From Hunger to Hope, she has used her fame and success to raise over $148 million for WFP and other hunger relief agencies in 45 countries.

Christina debuted in this role with a moving public service announcement that shows her serenading onlookers at a busy street corner in Los Angeles with her hit ballad Beautiful.
