With that said, check out this great Latina artist, Belinda, I found on Youtube. Her new song called, " En la Obscuridad", plays tribute to Frida Kahlo and La Virgen de Guadalupe. In a recent phone interview with 103.9 Radio Sol she states, " Tanto Frida como La Virgen de Guadalupe represent an fuerza y mucha luz. Son dos mujeres muy importantes en mi vida y quise honrarlas en mi nuevo trabajo".

I am sooo in love with this girl. Watch this video and you'll see why.
