Posted on October 3, 2012

Christina Aguilera and Yum! Chairman and CEO David Novak were honored at the State Department at the 11th annual George McGovern Leadership Award ceremony. They were honored for their world hunger relief efforts by the World Food Program.

Christina is a United Nations World Food Program Ambassador Against Hunger. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in her speech that one of the most heartwarming Christina Aguilera videos she has ever seen is the video where Christina is singing "Itsy Bitsy Spider" with kids in Haiti.

Hillary also said, "If I could sing Christina, I would want to be on your team."

Take a look:

Christina said, "As a woman and mother, I'm honored to receive this award and be part of the global effort to solve hunger. For just 25 cents a day, we can feed a child in school and be part of the solution. In my travels with the World Food Programme, I've seen firsthand how that meal changes the life of a child. It's the stories I've heard and the people I've met through World Food Programme that I carry with me every day."
