It was hard to choose betwen Murphy,and Celia.They are in differents categories.Murphy was a hero,no honor enough,Celia have a lot of honors in this life.She was cuban as the sugar cane,i love her more here in the exile.Because she was the soul,and songs of Cuba.Mirta Ransom,Brandon Florida.

I just voted for Celia Cruz, a very
patriotic woman, as well as a very accomplished singer of cuban origins. When asked about her feelings for the USA she answered very strongly that she was born in Cuba but was always in love with the USA which adopted her when she was rejected everywhere. At that time everyone was in love with Fidel Castro, the sworn enemy of this country.

Alfonso Taboada

I'm vote for Celia because she is our Queen.

Celia Cruz was not only a good singer with a solid voice, but a person of high moral character and a great christian who donated millions to charity organizations without telling the world about it! She was also an activist who loved her country. "SHE WAS A TRUE LEADER"
