"La vida es un carnaval" - Celia Cruz
Celia Cruz is a Cuban singer who became known as the "Queen of Salsa" all over the world. If she hadn't pursued a career in music, she would have trained to be a Spanish teacher. In 1959, when Fidel Castro took control of Cuba, Celia and her husband left the country and later gained citizenship in the United States. Cruz died in 2003 but her legacy lives on. Feel free to listen to my favorite song by her, "La vida es un carnaval." Click the link and check it out!
