Celia: Mi Vida by Celia Cruz

Cuando murió Celia Cruz, el 17 de julio del 2003, más de medio millón de personas --en Miami y en Nueva York-- esperaron en fila durante horas para presentarle sus últimos respetos. Varios millones más, le rindieron homenaje en pequeñas celebraciones conmemorativas, organizadas en sus propias casas y en festivales callejeros a través del mundo entero.

De su modesta infancia en Cuba, a sus años de exilio en México y su impresionante carrera en Estados Unidos, de sus extravagantes vestidos a su personalidad sencilla y reservada, Celia fue sin duda alguna, una mujer de contrastes. Era sincera, espontánea y accesible para sus fans, pero siempre muy privada. Era desinhibida sin ser decadente, honesta sin ser ofensiva, confiada sin ser arrogante y generosa a más no poder. Sin embargo, antes que nada, Celia era una mujer auténtica. Y es esa autenticidad que la caracterizaba, la que hizo que su público llegara a quererla tanto.

Basado en más de 500 horas de entrevistas grabadas tan sólo unos meses antes de su muerte, Celia incluye fotografías y anécdotas inéditas sobre la vida de Celia Cruz, revelándole a sus millones de admiradores, una vida que había permanecido muy privada a pesar de haberse vivido sobre el escenario.

Celia es la celebración de la vida de una mujer dotada de un talento extraordinario. Es la historia de una mujer apasionada, trabajadora que tenía una fe indestructible en Dios y en toda la humanidad. En estas, sus últimas palabras, le rinde homenaje al público que tanto la adoraba.

Celia was known for her contagious smile, unique fashion sense, a gentle personality and paramount voice. After Celia Cruz passed away on July 17, , more than a half million people stood in line for hours in order to pay their respects, in both Miami and New York. Millions more paid tribute to her, holding impromptu memorials in living rooms and crowded street festivals throughout the world. When she was alive, Celia Cruz never granted anyone total access to her life story and photo archive. Finally, comes a book that chronicles her own story, in her own words.

Rayo Based on over hours of taped interviews by Texas based journalist Ana Cristina Reymundo, recorded shortly before her death, this page book contains a number of previously unpublished photographs among or so featured. Essentially the book explores, through many personal, anecdotal accounts, her life in music — childhood and development as a singer in Cuba, leaving Cuba via Mexico, life in the United States and the contrast between her flamboyant stage presence and home life. Celia managed to remain a fairly private person and before this book shared very little with prospective writers, much of what is written comes directly from her for the first time in print. It is a light, conversational style of writing that makes for an un-taxing read. Celia comes across as an extremely nice person, which I sure she was, though she does make some welcome critical comments here and there.
