Ana Arelys Cruz Cabrera is a Dominican poet whose incredible published works include books  like Contrast of Two Cities, Inspirations of the Soul and, most recently, Melodies of the Heart.  Both of the latter books include poems that she turned into songs that I had the honor to sing and record.  The songs were Anthem to the Fathers and My Merry Christmas and both were recorded in English and in Spanish.

Fearless Fest Event in NYC is an event put together by Women You Should Know

It was created to inspire and motivate, as well as empower women.  And that, it did!

It featured all-women panels, instructors and makers.  We were there with We are Women Owned, an organization of all women-owned businesses, at the market place where you could purchase unique products and learn more about each of our businesses.

It was a beautiful crowd and an overall fun experience!
