Millions of people around the world will go hungry this holiday season. But singer Christina Aguilera has become a "voice" for them. Chris Cuomo looks at how she's making an impact. "Twinkle twinkle little star" Christina Aguilere is lending a hand, and her voice, in the fight against world hunger. "Hhow I wonder what you are." The Grammy winner says becoming a mother played a key role in her decision to get involved. "When I look at my son I realize all the opportunities that he has around him," says Aguilera. "Every child deserves the chance to dream and to hope." Aguilere recently traveld to Rwanda as an ambassador against hunger for the United Nations World Food Programme. "It's just so lovely to see them smile and their eyes light up and for them to be eager to get an education, and in the long term, try and provide for their family and break the cycle of going hungry," says Aguilera. This is Aguilera's third trip with the World Food Progamme. She previously visited Guatemala and Haiti. "Why not do all I can to give these children a voice of their own to be heard and to have the same opportunities everyone else should have," Aguilera says. "Like a diamond in the sky."
