Happy Birthday Celia Cruz

Celia Cruz
The late, great Cuban singer, Celia Cruz, who passed away in 2003, would have been 88 years old today. She is also one of today’s top Google searches; although they did have a hand in that.

To mark the occasion of this great woman’s birth, Google today displays a “Google Doodle” in her honor. Huff Po reports of it here.

To embark upon your own celebration we urge you to view the video behind the link here. It’s Celia in 1974 — just as her career was experiencing a massive resurgence — fronting Johnny Pacheco and the Fania All-Stars in Zaire, Africa.

We insist that you research everything mentioned in the above paragraph, and an excellent place to start would be Celia’s PeekYou profile. Just click on her highlighted name above, and you’ll be led to tons of links about her and her career.
