In April 2011 she reached the top of the Dutch singles chart with a rendition of “Afscheid”, a 1998 hit of the band Volumia!. She appeared on the 13th season of America’s Got Talent in 2018.

Her first performance on America’s Got Talent was a cover from Whitney Houston’s “Run To You”.

Earlier in the AGT season, the glamorous singer performed “Run to You” by Whitney Houston for her audition, then followed up with “Nothing Compares 2 U“.

Grace showed her earlier performances were no flukes when she nailed the inspiration song with a touch of soul and some crowd-pleasing power-notes.

To start the day …. Remembering my country, Puerto Rico!!


PR2

~~August 11, 2014~~ 

I’m feeling a little bit sentimental today. I’m missing my roots. I am from Puerto Rico. I was born and raised there. I didn’t come to the USA, to live permanently until 1999. I really wanted to leave the Island and live stateside.

It’s not like I lost my connection but my immediate family has passed on. Going back would really make to major difference. The Island is a mini-USA.

I’d be right at home.

PRC

Puerto Rico, officially the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico (Spanish: Estado Libre Asociado de Puerto Rico, is an unincorporated territory of the United States, located in the northeastern Caribbean east of the Dominican Republic and west of both the United States Virgin Islands and the British Virgin Islands.

Puerto Rico (Spanish for “rich port”) is an archipelago that includes the main island of Puerto Rico and a number of smaller islands, the largest of which are Vieques, Culebra, and Mona. The main island of Puerto Rico is, by land area, the smallest of the Greater Antilles. With around 3.6 million people, it ranks third in population among that group of four islands, which include Cuba, Hispaniola (Dominican Republic and Haiti), and Jamaica.

The capital and largest city is San Juan. Due to its location, Puerto Rico has a tropical climate and is subject to hot weather all-year-round. The national language is Spanish but English is recognized as an official language as well.

Originally populated for centuries by the aboriginal people known as Taíno, the island was claimed by Christopher Columbus for Spain during his second voyage to the Americas on November 19, 1493. Like Cuba, Puerto Rico remained a Spanish colony until 1898.

Despite the Laws of Burgos of 1512 and other decrees for the protection of Indians, some Taíno peoples were forced into slavery in the early years of colonization. Others suffered high fatalities from epidemics of European infectious diseases. In four centuries of Spanish rule, the island’s culture and physical landscape were transformed. European knowledge, customs and traditions were introduced, namely Christianity, the Spanish language, and advances of European civilization such as agriculture, construction in stone, and new technologies such as the clock and the printing press.

Numerous public buildings, forts, churches and public infrastructure were built during Spanish colonization, including ports, roads and lighthouses, many of which survive to this day. For over three centuries the island was linked to Spain through regular convoys of the West Indies Fleet which sailed from Cadiz to the Spanish West Indies every year.

Puerto Rico was a Spanish colony for over 400 years, despite attempts to capture the island by the French, Dutch, and British.

On November 25, 1897, Spain’s central government in Madrid granted the island the Autonomic Charter and finally the colony of Puerto Rico ceased to exist. Instead, Puerto Rico was annexed to the rest of Spain as an overseas autonomous province in full equality with the other provinces of the Spanish nation.

The complete integration of Puerto Rico to Spain automatically extended Title I of the Spanish constitution turning all Puerto Ricans into Spanish citizens and allowed Puerto Rico to have full representation in the Spanish Courts of Madrid. In 1898, Spain was forced by the United States to cede the Autonomous Province of Puerto Rico as a result of the Spanish–American War under the terms of the Treaty of Paris.

In 1917, the U.S. granted citizenship to Puerto Ricans. In 1948, Puerto Ricans were given the right to elect their own governor. In 1952, under request by the United States, a local territorial constitution was adopted and ratified by the electorate. Under the tenets of the Puerto Rico Federal Relations Act, residents of the island are still subject to the plenary jurisdiction of the U.S. Congress. Puerto Rico remains a U.S. territory, although its political status is a subject of ongoing debate among residents.

PRMan

TO THIS DAY PUERTO RICO IS STILL A COLONY OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. CITIZENS DO NOT VOTE FOR THE PRESIDENT YET THEY CAN BE DRAFTED OR VOLUNTARILY JOIN THE ARMED FORCES. 

SOME PAY TAXES TO THE USA, DEPENDING ON THEIR INCOME BRACKET. ALL PAY LOCAL TAXES.

PUERTO RICO HAS ITS OWN NATIONAL HYMN, ITS OWN MISS UNIVERSE CANDIDATE, BASEBALL, BASKETBALL AND OLYMPIC TEAMS. THE PRIMARY LANGUAGE IS SPANISH YET ENGLISH IS SPOKEN BY THE MAJORITY.

“I am a cameraman/d.p. based in Los Angeles. On my last trip to my island, I took my new toy, a Phantom 2 drone with a GoPro camera in tow. I did not have a lot of time, and there are so many beautiful locations I missed, but I hope to return soon, and capture as much as I can (Flamenco Beach, El Yunque, La Cueva del Indio, etc.). I hope you enjoy it.”

Google Doodle …. Audrey Hepburn’s 85th birthday!!


~~May 4, 2014~~

The doodle on the Google home page, May 4, 2014, commemorating Audrey Hepburn’s 85th birthday celebrates her life both as a legendary screen actress as well as a humanitarian who was also widely regarded for her work as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador.

The doodle has Audrey Hepburn striking a film star pose with her eyes closed forming the second ‘O’ in the Google logo and in the background it is again her playing and interacting with underprivileged children, for whom she dedicated much of her later life.

Audrey Hepburn (born Audrey Kathleen Ruston; 4 May 1929 – 20 January 1993) was a British actress and humanitarian. Recognized as a film and fashion icon, Hepburn was active during Hollywood’s Golden Age.

She was ranked by the American Film Institute as the third greatest female screen legend in the history of American cinema and has been placed in the International Best Dressed List Hall of Fame. She is also regarded by some to be the most naturally beautiful woman of all time.

Born in Ixelles, a district of Brussels, Hepburn spent her childhood between Belgium, England and the Netherlands, including German-occupied Arnhem during the Second World War.

In Amsterdam, she studied ballet with Sonia Gaskell before moving to London in 1948 to continue her ballet training with Marie Rambert and perform as a chorus girl in West End musical theatre productions. She spoke several languages including English,FrenchDutchItalianSpanish, and German.

After appearing in several British films and starring in the 1951 Broadway play Gigi, Hepburn played the Academy Award-winning lead role in Roman Holiday (1953). She went on to star in a number of successful films, such as Sabrina (1954), The Nun’s Story (1959), Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961), Charade (1963), My Fair Lady (1964) and Wait Until Dark (1967), for which she received Academy Award, Golden Globe and BAFTA nominations.

For her role in Roman Holiday, Hepburn was also the first actress to win an Oscar, a Golden Globe and a BAFTA Award for a single performance in 1954. The same year, she won a Tony Award for Best Lead Actress in a Play for Ondine. Hepburn remains one of few people who have won Academy, Emmy, Grammy, and Tony Awards.

She won a record three BAFTA Awards for Best British Actress in a Leading Role.

She appeared in fewer films as her life went on, devoting much of her later life to UNICEF.

Although contributing to the organization since 1954, she worked in some of the most profoundly disadvantaged communities of Africa, South America and Asia between 1988 and 1992. She was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in recognition of her work as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador in December 1992.

A month later, Hepburn died of appendiceal cancer at her home in Switzerland at the age of 63.
