La Reina

Celia Cruz is/was the Queen of Salsa and after listening to most of her last CD on the road this weekend I've come to the conclusion that if I could go back in time I'd be her back up singer. I can't sing, nor do I speak Spanish other then the usual 5 phrases you should know if you're in a Spanish speaking country but I'd have figured it out. Celia Cruz was amazing and had an amazing career, I'm just sad that I didn't discover her music until after she passed away.



So if anyone reading this saw a crazy looking chick in a silver civic on 95, it was the drums. They made me do it.

The drums huh? Ohhh-kay. Really, you only discovered Celia after she passed? Very surprising... miss Cruz was big among the Haitian community...

@ Creole -- Yeah the drums will just get into your soul.

@ Luke Cage -- I know weird huh. I actually discovered her through my dad right after she died. He'd bought her special DVD/CD set.

I'm still wondering who they're going to get to play her in the movie of her life. I'd heard at one time that Jennifer Lopez was vying to buy the rights. If she does, I hope she lets someone else play Celia.

I REALLY hope JLo does NOT try to play Celia. That would be like having Beyonce play Diana Ross. Whoops... LOL
