Mandi Castillo: ‘Así Fue’ …. “🎼 Four Chair Turn …. The Voice 🎼 …. “!!

“ASI FUE”

Mandi Castillo, from San Antonio, Texas, performed a well-known Spanish song on The Voice blinds.

I’m catching up with the recorded shows.

I know the song very well. She did a great job in her performance.

There’s more that I’d like to see from her!

The Voice got a much-needed Latin twist on Monday night (March 16), when Mandi Castillo took the stage to perform Juan Gabriel‘s “Así Fue” for her blind audition.

Nick Jonas got misty-eyed when explaining to the Texas native what her performance meant to him.

“Not trying to get emotional here, but I started thinking about how important it is to represent,” he explained, and his statement was met by erupting cheers from the audience. “Some of my favorite music in the world is sung in different languages. You are in a lane all on your own.”

Sebastián Yatra and Ricky Martin …. “🎼 ‘Falta Amor’ – Official Video 🎼 …. “!!


~~March 31, 2020~~

ANYTHING RICKY, I HAVE TO CHECK OUT!

I follow Ricky like a mindless groupie. He’s Puerto Rican, first and then the amazing talent we all know about.

Here’s his most recent collaboration.

Check it out with me!

Sebastián Yatra has joined forces with many a pop icon in his career, including the Jonas Brothers, Halsey and Juanes. On Thursday, March 26, the Colombian singer-songwriter made an unparalleled alliance with the original Latin crossover king: Ricky Martin. Together they draw an evocative duet from Yatra’s 2019 rock-pop tearjerker, “Falta Amor,” which translates to “There’s No Love”.

First featured on Yatra’s Latin Grammy-nominated album, Fantasía,Falta Amor” was initially written as a solo ballad. In the revamped “Falta Amor,” Yatra finds a confidante in Martin, who tempers Yatra’s heartache with his croon. In the Carlos Perez-directed video, the two front a rock band inside a bombed-out factory, and gently lament a love gone unreciprocated. Masked dancers writhe across the wreckage to emphasize the emotional toil.

“Singing with Ricky Martin is just insane,” Yatra said of their collaboration in a statement. “I would have never thought it possible in this lifetime. It’s huge not only as a Latino, but for any person that loves music.”

Tuesday Thoughts …. “🤔 This Ride Called Life 🤔 …. “!!


~~March 31, 2020~~

ON THIS ROAD CALLED LIFE

There’s only on tiny statement that I personally have an issue with.

(and I know it’s a personal flaw).

It’s the part about ‘forgiving‘. For me it depends … and that may make be infantile, small and petty. Yet, it depends on who it was and what was done for me to forgive.

My truth!

Puerto Rico Debt Plan at Risk as Economic Outlook Darkens


M’lord!! … ‘Puerto Rico and a group of investors in February agreed to a debt-cutting deal that would allow them to recover as much as 77.6 cents on the dollar from their investment in the island’s bonds.

A report by Michelle Kaske for Bloomberg.

Puerto Rico and a group of investors in February agreed to a debt-cutting deal that would allow them to recover as much as 77.6 cents on the dollar from their investment in the island’s bonds. But that deal may have to be revisited as the coronavirus darkens the outlook for the economy.

While the commonwealth estimates its economy has been growing after more than a decade of contraction, the coronavirus could exert a considerable drag on Puerto Rico’s economy over the next two quarters.

The tentative plan for how to slash nearly $18 billion of Puerto Rico’s debt is on hold after the judge overseeing the record bankruptcy canceled hearings set for early June as island officials work to slow the spread of the disease. They’ll also be working with Puerto Rico’s financial oversight board to assess the economic impact of the…
