Celia Cruz

Born in Havana, Cuba in 1925, Ursula Hilaria Celia de la Caridad Cruz Alfonso, more popularly known as Celia Cruz, is recognized internationally as among the most popular salsa performers of all time. Early in her illustrious career, she performed with the celebrated Cuban orchestra, Sonora Matancera, helping to propel Cuban music and Latin music in general to world prominence. In 1959, she left Cuba for the United States and joined the great Tito Puente Orchestra in the mid-1960s. She would go on to record more than 75 records, 20 of which went gold. She won several Grammys, appeared in movies and earned a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame. In 1994, President Clinton honored this undisputed queen of salsa with a National Medal of Arts. She died in 2003 and is now buried in Woodlawn Cemetery in the Bronx.
