The ceremony concluded with a special tribute to The Voice star from Clinton as well as a roundtable discussion between Aguilera, CEO of Yum! Brands Inc David Novak and U.S. Agency for International Development administrator Raj Shah.
Clinton and Aguilera seemed to get along famously at the event, held to mark the nearly $115 million raised by the pop-star for the United Nation‘s World Food Program and other international hunger relief organisations since 2007.
Marking just over two-years since her appointment as an ambassador against hunger by the United Nations, Aguilera has spoken in the past on how seriously she takes her role.
‘A child dies every 6 seconds of hunger, which is a huge statistic for me,’ said Aguilera to Oprah Winfrey, as she announced her appointment on Winfrey’s popular TV talk show in 2010. ‘After having my own child, I just had to be a part of it and do something about it and help change that situation.”
