Dear Radio Romania International:
It is hoped that when you receive this letter, that everything is great in Romania especially in Bucharest which is known as the Paris of Central Europe.
It is a pleasure and an honour to nominate a Personality of the Year 2009 taking into account the changes in Romania and Central Europe including Radio Romania International.
The underwriter would like to nominate the following person for her multifaceted talent as a singer, actress, model, and humanitarian. Her name is Maria Lourdes.
Maria Lourdes is a Cuban American Actress, Singer, Model, and Humanitarian who was born in New Jersey in 1989. Her parents were from Cuba.
She began her career at an early age and was able to rise to the top of her career. Maria Lourdes has recorded two albums and currently works as a member of the chorus and model of the Univision program “Don Francisco Presenta”.
Her albums “Sensual” and “Sin Genero” dealt with the need to think positive about life and to trust in God. “Sin Genero” deals with different rhythms in the US Latin Community.
The two songs from “Sin Genero” dealt with love of family and country. “Un Canto a La Caridad” talks about the Virgin of Charity in Cuba and the non violent movement within Cuba “Ladies in White” who have suffered repression in Cuba.
The song “Navidad” or “Christmas” is a Carol for the Twenty First Century and calls on people to celebrate the holiday with family and friends yet taking into account the fact that Jesus Christ is the reason for the season.
The humanitarian work of Maria Lourdes know no limits since she has sang in concerts to raise money for the treatment of Zunette Rodriguez [who was born without oxygen or limited quantities to her brain].
She also participated in various fundraisers around Miami to help orphans and the disadvantage of the world. She also participated in the movement “La Misma Moneda” which calls attention to the fact that in Cuba there is a currency for the common citizen and another for tourists and the elite.
It is with this in mind that the underwriter recommends Maria Lourdes for Radio Romania International Personality of The Year for 2009. Thank You very much.
