Mi Amor Celia Cruz!!!
(my spanish sucks, but you get the idea.)

Listening to her do "La Vida Es un Carnaval" on XM World Zone at the moment.

Is Celia the Ella Fitzgerald of Latin music or what?

1. I love Celia.
My b/f got me on to listening to her and when she died we watched on the funeral events and all of the tributes.

She was indeed a special, beautiful and talented lady.

RIP :hug:

2. RIP, indeed.
I was late becoming an admirer as well. I was aware of her before she died, but it was only after seeing how loved she was in the latin community that I realized how wonderful she was.

4. I'm sure I did. Have you seen any of this?
Videos from a Telemundo tribute performance before she died...

(Kleenex warning... she was so talented and full of life, no wonder she was so adored.)

5. I'll watch later.
I am at work. No audio on this computer plus we are going to get busy soon.

Thanks for posting the links.
