Me llamo Celia: La vida de Celia Cruz

If Elvis is the King of Rock, and Michael Jackson is the King of Pop -- who is the Queen of Salsa? Celia Cruz!

Celia was born in Havana, Cuba in 1924.  She grew up singing amid her thirteen brothers, sisters and cousins.  In fact, she spent her whole life singing.  She earned twenty-three gold albums throughout her long career -- bringing the songs, sounds and rhythms of Latin music to the world.

To find out more about Celia Cruz, read My Name is Celia/Me llamo Celia by Monica Brown with pictures by Rafael Lopez.
