A very pleasant goodevening ladies and gentlemen
It is now time
The one and only, there never will be another
Christina Aguilera

That's how music should sound

Ooh hey

I've waited for some time
To get inside the minds
Of every legend I've ever wanted to stand beside
It's like an endless ride
Feelin the lows and highs
Of every lyric and melody, every single rhyme
So here I stand today
And tribute I do pay
To those before me who laid it down and paved the way
And so to God I pray that He will give me strength
To carry forward the gift of song in His good faith, in His good faith

Going back to basics
To where it all began
I'm ready now to face it
I wanna understand
What made the soul singers and the blues figures
That inspired a higher generation
The jazz makers and the groundbreakers
They gave so much of themselves in dedication

So here I stand today
And tribute I do pay
To those before me who laid it down and paved the way
