RE: Is Celia Cruz Haitian?
I looked around the Internet and I've only found out that she was "Cuban Born"
"It is well known, however, that Cruz's birthday is October 21, and that she was born in Havana, Cuba, to Simon and Catalina (Alfonso) Cruz. Although Simon and Catalina Cruz had only four children of their own (Celia was the second eldest), 14 children, including nieces, nephews, and cousins, occupied the Cruz home in a poor part of Havana, the Santa Saurez barrio, or neighborhood."
This is a story I haver not been able to verify, but it is worth telling : Celine Lacroix, Better Known as Celia Cruz...Return to Message List
