To start the day ….. “Karen Rodriguez: Tribute to Latinas in Music …. “!!


~~March 28, 2016~~ 


I grew up listening to some of these awesome Latin singers.

Others grew up in from of my very own eyes.

I’m very happy to see a young, coming up talent like Karen Rodriguez honor the ladies that she grew up listening to who may have shaped her musical talent.

This is a wonderful video for me to wake up to and a wonderful start to a new week.

Hope you enjoy it.

Karen Rodriguez wants Latinas to be loud and proud throughout Women’s History Month. The Miami born singer partnered up with Spotify in the compilation of some of the greatest hits sung by the best Latina performers the music industry has ever seen.

With “Reinas: A Tribute to Latina Women in History,” the singer-songwriter pays tribute to the “reinas” she grew up listening to.

Arranged and produced by Luis Gomez (Raulín Rosendo, Frankie J, Tito Nieves), the medley features songs originally made famous by legends such as, Celia Cruz, Jenni Rivera, Milly Quezada, Gloria Estefan, Olga Tañon, and Selena, and combines Latin music genres like bolero, salsa, Tejano, and Latin pop.
