Work Hard, Olga Tañon Recommends Young Singers
Famed Puerto Rican singer, Olga Tañon, recommended young people who start in this artistic world to work hard to achieve their goals.

I say to them to not never give up, learn as much as possible, always worth dreaming but you have to work hard, the singer told Prensa Latina, who will offer the last of two free concerts on the island on Saturday.

Full of emotions and eager to sing in Havana, a promise she had been pending since her first visit to the country when she participated in the "Paz sin fronteras" (Peace Without Borders) concert, held in September 2009, Tañon said she is immersed in a new album that will feature several Cuban guests.

One of them is Carlos Diaz, leader of Qva Libre, a band that captivated Tañon after the collaboration on the theme "Tu eres la razon" (You Are the Reason), where Cuban singer and songwriter, Descemer Bueno, is also involved. "They are a sensation, as we say in my country," the winner of five Grammy Awards said.

The album will also feature three songs from Osmani Espinosa, one of the most prominent young composers in the country.

Referring to the "Paz sin fronteras" concert, she recalled at a news conference that it marked her as a human, and remembered a Franciscan priest friend, Father Dario, died last year, who once said to her that she had to come to the island, because people loved her here.

Tañon arrived in the island on November 30, and since then, she has not stopped. Besides singing in Santiago de Cuba, she visited several schools. One of them was the "Frank Pais" special center for children with disabilities, which she will begin to sponsor along with her family. / PL.
