"America" is one of the songs on the soundtrack for the documentary "Served Like a Girl" about female war veterans. The album is comprised of songs written by Linda Perry and recorded by pop stars like Gwen Stefani, P!nk and Aguilera. "America" marks a new release from Xtina since putting out "Telepathy" last year from "The Get Down" soundtrack.
"America" sees Aguilera reunite with Perry, who wrote past Xtina hits like "Beautiful" and "Candyman." It's one of Christina's most stripped-down tracks with acoustic guitar and piano backing her in awe of the country. "There's a great big future in this promise land / Everyone deserves to hold it in their hand in America," she sings. Aguilera breathes life and power into Perry's vivid lyricism, giving weight to the hope expressed in the song. "America" is a heartfelt and hearty ode to the home of the brave.
"America" and the "Served Like a Girl" soundtrack are now available on iTunes and Apple Music. Aguilera will return to the spotlight on Nov. 19 at the American Music Awards performing a medley of Whitney Houston songs from "The Bodyguard" soundtrack to honor the movie's 25th anniversary.
