Joana gets her talent from her father, who plays the drums and trumpet but was unable to pursue a musical career. As a shy kid, she used to make her family and friends turn around when she would sing, but performing helped her blossom. In middle school, she was nominated “Most Likely to Win ‘The Voice,’” and at 13 sang the national anthem at a Miami Heat game and later performed at a Miami Marlins game. As a second generation Cuban-American, she enjoys singing in both Spanish and English. Joana is currently a sophomore in high school at the Miami Arts Studio magnet school, where she also participates in musical theater.
Christina Aguilera is an American singer, songwriter, actress and television personality. Her accolades include five Grammy Awards, one Latin Grammy Award, and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Aguilera ranked at number 58 on Rolling Stone’s list of 100 Greatest Singers of All Time in 2008, and was included on Time’s annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world in 2013. With estimated sales of 75 million records, she is one of the world’s best-selling music artists.
