The production team for Christina Aguilera announced Thursday that the singer was planning to invite Israeli vocalist Eden Ben-Zekn to join her in a duet of Hurt, during her concert in Israel next month.
Hurt is not new to the Israeli singer. It was her chosen song for her audition for the Israeli production of the X Factor reality show about a decade ago which was her breakthrough to what has since been a successful career.
"I am excited about the collaboration with Christina Aguilera, one of the greatest singers in the world," Ben Zaken said in an official statement. "It's a thrilling moment for me and I'm sure it will be an amazing experience for both of us."
The 42-year-old American pop singer, referred to as the "Voice of a Generation," began her musical journey in the late '90s with the release of her debut album, featuring hit singles like "Genie in a Bottle," "What a Girl Wants," and "Come On Over Baby (All I Want Is You)."
Throughout her career, Aguilera released nine albums, her latest, "Aguilera," coming out last year. She is noted for her four-octave vocal range and signature use of melisma and has won five Grammy awards after 21 nominations.
Among her many hits are "Dirrty," "Beautiful," "Hurt," "Lady Marmalade" - featured in the musical "Moulin Rouge!" soundtrack, "Candyman," "Ain't No Other Man," her collaboration with Maroon 5 - "Moves Like Jagger," and many more.
