■ Christina Aguilera visited Ecuador to fight world hunger. She shared a video from her trip, explaining 800 million people go to bed hungry, and as a mom of two she felt compelled to help.
This particular trip was sort of extra-special for me because it is my blood and heritage," she told the Associated Press back in September after returning from her trip. "My father was born in Ecuador and my grandfather was born in Quito, which is the city I stayed in. And we would drive out in the fields which were hours away by car and into the farmland and sort of refugee areas where people are struggling."
She added, "I definitely had always wanted to go visit where my dad comes from, the culture, you know, not having sort of a consistent relationship at all in my life with him and not really knowing him as I've gotten older through the years as well. There's a history there. But, you know, it is a part of my blood and a part of my heritage and a part of my people. And I would look at the faces and I would sort of ... sometimes feel like I saw a resemblance. I think it's important and I think it's good to know where you come from and sort of get to know your roots."
