Pasadena, California was the place to be last weekend on Friday September 27th. It was the Latin Award show “The Alma Awards” Hosted by Mario Lopez and Eva Longoria. This event was all Exclusive! Celebrity Latin Talent across the wall. But the real story is that Atlanta, Georgia Latina Singer/Actress Cristina Quinones made a Grand entrance. In fact, she was the Only one there representing Atlanta Latinos with her presence. Wow! is the words that came out of so many people at the Alma Awards as they viewed her stepping out from her black Limo on to the Celebrity Red Carpet dressed in an all Red Versace Gown! Miss Cristina gave them every reason to ask her “Who are you and where are you from?”
To their belief they said they didn’t even know that their were Latinos in Georgia. Well have to say she show them and proved them wrong. So Latin Atlanta Georgians be very proud that Cristina Quinones is giving her all to represent in the West Coast
Raudel Collazo received more freedom than he has ever got in his homeland of Cuba during his performances in Miami with “Escuadron Patriota,” his two-man band made up of himself and a DJ. With the government restricting him from expressing his message through his words, coming to America due to his sixth CD, “Catarsis“, the islander couldn’t be happier.
Collazo already got the chance to perform at La Madriguera theater where he said his experience was incredible. He mentions how back home in Cuba they have a restricted space called La Madriguera where they can perform, and having this whole idea of La Madriguera in Miami is a very symbolic connection to the reality back at home.
“Escuadron Patriota“also performed at Cuba Ocho in Miami, rapping heartfelt lyrics that brought some people to tears. He has been flagged by the Cuban government as a counter-revolutionist because of his beliefs and controversial lyrics. He wants to be able to share his music without it being censored and that is exactly the chance he is getting.
The voice for those less fortunate
The 39-year-old Cuban writes a lot about the extreme poverty in Cuba and the struggles that people go through on a daily basis. “I come from the lowest class in Cuba and through hip-hop I am able to get my message across and be the voice for those people that have it the worst on the island,” Raudel told VOXXI.
Speaking the truth of what he has seen is sure to bring tears to the people that are tied to their Cuban roots and even to those who can sympathize on a certain level.
Being able to share his message, which is geared through spirituality, in Miami, Collazo has noticed the different ways people think and deliver their message. He mentions how others have different points of view and notices that his message may not reach everyone.
