If you’re not my friend on Facebook (and why aren’t you??), you didn’t see the picture of me in my fabulous new dress. I’m so glad I splurged and bought it!
And now I’ll go ahead and tell you where we went. Val got four tickets to Celia the Queen, a documentary nine years in the making about our beloved Celia Cruz. The film is playing throughout the week as part of the Miami Film Festival. It will be telecast on PBS later on this year, if you aren’t able to catch it during the festival.
The film mixes concert footage, interviews with Celia before her death in 2003, and testaments from family, friends and other artists to explore the musical legacy she left behind. Go see it. Trust me, it’s worth it. It truly is a labor of love, and a fitting tribute to our Queen.
