Somebody at Google loves Celia! Someone did a google doodle for her 88th birthday which is today, October 21st!
If you haven’t had a chance to check out her anniversary box set, it is a must! I wrote the liner notes and as mentioned in my past blog post, the deluxe set contains 60 pages of text and features over 70 unpublished and never-before-seen photographs and memorabilia obtained with the express approval of Celia’s estate. All songs have been meticulously remastered for the best quality audio. Finally, there are encomiums and reminiscences from Quincy Jones, David Byrne, Andy Garcia, Beyonce, Rita Marley, Whoopi Goldberg, Gloria Estefan and other luminaries, all praising Celia’s greatness.
