Calle Ocho Live announced that the late Celia Cruz, the Queen of Salsa, and Ivy Queen, the Queen of Reggaeton, will perform in an epic virtual duet of the Calle Ocho Live festival that is taking place October 4th.
“Celia Cruz stands out for her powerful voice, talent, stage presence, and eccentricities,” said Ivy Queen. “I’m honored to sing one of her songs with Celia because she captivated me from the moment I first heard her incredible voice and she is synonymous with the highest values, sacrifices and empowerment music that gives all of us. ¡Viva Celia Cruz, the Queen!”
“Celia’s biggest wish was that her name be kept alive for future generations and this special performance with an artist with the stature of Ivy Queen is something that will keep her glorious legacy going for decades to come,” stated Omer Pardillo Cid, President of the Celia Cruz Foundation.
