Five legendary musicians and performers of the Latin sound whose contributions have had a lasting impact on American music – Selena, Carlos Gardel, Carmen Miranda, Tito Puente, and Celia Cruz – today were honored on U.S. commemorative Forever stamps.
“From this day forward, these colorful, vibrant images of our Latin music legends will travel on letters and packages to every single household in America,” said Marie Therese Dominguez, vice president, Government Relations and Public Policy.
“In this small way, we have created a lasting tribute to five extraordinary performers, and we are proud and honored to share their legacy with Americans everywhere through these beautiful stamps,” Dominguez said.
Among the distinctive musical genres and styles represented by the music legends featured on the Forever stamps are Tejano, tango, samba, Latin jazz and salsa.
